Inmate-Trained Horses Available Soon at Wyoming Honor Farm

The BLM announced today that wild horses and burros gathered from public lands in Wyoming would be available for adoption May 17 – 18 at the Wyoming Honor Farm in Riverton.  Gentling techniques will be demonstrated on the first day.

The announcement noted that placing excess animals into private care will keep western rangelands healthy and productive.

Given that the animals serve no useful purpose and bring in no economic return, why would they be worried about productivity?

Because those lands host other animals—the paying kind—such as privately owned cattle and sheep.  Never mind that they were set aside for wild horses and burros, that was a long time ago.
