Wild Horses Available For Adoption in Boise | Pets
We get news releases about cat and dog adoptions at local shelters all the time, but this is the first we've heard about wild horse adoptions. You'll have to drive all the way down to Boise to adopt wild horses from White Pine and Elko Counties.
They've got bay, palomino, sorrel, grulla, roan and black mares and geldings ranging from eight months to one year of age. The adoption event is on February 27th at 1 p.m. at the Boise Wild Horse Corrals off of Pleasant Valley Road. Adoption fees are $75 for the first horse and $25 for the second horse. You can view the horses ahead of time by calling Wild Horse and Burro Specialist, Steve Leonard at (208) 384-3454.
“All horses available for adoption have been de-wormed and have received vaccinations for common equine conditions and diseases,” according to Leonard. “Adopters will receive complete health care records, as well as herd management and other equine information for their newly adopted animals.” /BLM Press Release
There are some requirements for wild horse adoption that must be disclosed in the application process prior to bidding. You must be at least 18 years of age, never convicted of animal abuse or cruelty and have the proper facilities and transportation for the horses.
