The two horses have been trained by the Mantle Adoption and Training Facility in Wheatland, Wyo. Trainers have been working with both yearlings. They are halter-started, and used to being touched, are very good about having their feet handled, and load and unload from trailers. Both will be available for adoption by silent bid, April 19, 20 and 21.
The first is a one-year-old chestnut stud. Born at the Rock Springs Wild Horse Holding Facility, he has a white star, strip, snip on his face and one right hind sock. The second wild horse is a highly prized curly. The one-year-old sorrel filly has swirls of hair in her coat and a curly mane and tail. This filly was also born at the Rock Springs Wild Horse Holding Facility.
Applications are available at the BLM Wyoming Wild Horse and Burro booth. Trainers and adoption staff will be on hand to answer any questions. Get information about other 2013 BLM Wyoming adoption events offering saddle-started wild horses. Bidding closes at noon on Sunday and the horses will be awarded to the highest qualified bidder. The horses must be loaded by 2 p.m.
