Two yearling wild horses showcased for adoption at the Green River Chamber Visitor Center in Green River, Wyo., were given new names, Jessie and Mesa.
Becky Boyse of Green River chose “Jessie” for buckskin filly #9903 and Brian Wimer of Green River renamed white pinto colt #9915 “Mesa.” Boyse and Wimer both received $25 Chamber of Commerce gift certificates for use with merchants throughout Sweetwater County.
Mesa has been adopted by a horse lover in Rock Springs, Wyo., but Jessie is still available.
This is the third year wild horses have been fostered for adoption at the Green River Chamber Visitor Center, giving people a chance to see wild horses up close and promoting the Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Program.
