BLM’s Wheatland Corral kicks off Spring with April wild horse adoption

Wheatland, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management will offer 40-50 wild horses and burros for adoption on Friday, April 28, at the Wheatland Off-Range Corral in Wheatland, Wyo.  

Anyone interested can preview the animals starting at 8 a.m. until the live competitive auction begins at 10 a.m. Animals not taken during the auction will be available on a first come, first serve basis for the standard adoption fee of $125. The event ends at 3 p.m. 

To qualify, adopters must be at least 18 years old and have facilities that meet the BLM’s requirements. Get your adoption application pre-approved or to learn more about adoption requirements here

Wild horses and burros for adoption were removed from overpopulated herds roaming Western public rangelands. As part of our efforts to find every animal a good home, the BLM offers up to $1,000 to adopt an untrained animal.
