BLM announced yesterday that 50 wild horses and burros would be offered for direct purchase to good homes at the Bell County Expo Center October 12 – 13. Gentling demonstrations will occur both days. Refer to this news release for details.
The event was made possible by a BLM rule change on 05/24/18. If you could find it in your heart to buy 10, 15, or maybe 25 horses, you would be doing the BLM—and the public-lands ranchers—a huge favor.
The more captured horses they can unload, the more wild horses they can remove from the range, to be replaced with cattle and sheep—on lands set aside for the horses.
And don’t forget, the Mexican border is only 300 miles away.
