A field office manager, quoted in today’s news release about the upcoming event in Fruita, CO, said the agency wants to see these animals find good homes.
The event will include a training demonstration on the first day. The adoption fee has been lowered to $25 and the $1,000 incentive applies.
The best home for these animals, of course, is the range from which they were pushed, which is the last place these people want to see them.
That is the meaning of ‘healthy horses on healthy rangelands.’ Kick most of them out so their food can be sold to public-lands ranchers.
