This is not your typical adoption. These bundles of joy have hooves, a mane and can run like the wind.
Wild horses ranging from yearlings to 5 years old are being offered by the U.S. Department of Interior Bureau of Land Management for potential adoption Friday and Saturday, according to a news release from the bureau. The event is being held at the Ohio Horse Park, 400 Bobcat Lane, in Franklin Furnace, Ohio.
The animals can be previewed from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday. Adoption hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. A minimal adoption fee of $125 is required for animals less than 3 years of age and $25 for animals 3 and older. In addition, you can take home a buddy animal for only $25 when you adopt any animal at the full fee of $125.
The bureau said when the animals “have been gentled,” they can be used for dressage, trail riding, western events and other disciplines. Prospective adopters must have sturdy corrals that are 20 feet by 20 feet. They also must provide a stock-type, step up trailer (ramps and side-by-side, two-horse trailers are not allowed).
