Western States Horse Expo Starts Next Week

The venue has changed!  This year the event will be held at the Murieta Equestrian Center, about 26 miles east of Sacramento.  The schedule features clinics by Madison Shambaugh (Mustang Maddy) and Joe Misner (Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center), who will be bringing more inmate-trained mustangs for adoption.

Horses at Double Devil Corrals Now ‘Three Strikers’

A report posted today by the Herald and News of Klamath Falls, OR says that 219 former wild horses aged ten years or more have been placed into private hands, with 83% exiting the facility via ‘sale with limitations.’

They were forced off their home range last fall so their food could be sold to public-lands ranchers.  Another roundup is set for later this year.

Horses younger than ten that haven’t been adopted are now considered ‘three strikers,’ meaning they can be sold with limitations, starting at $25 each, then dropping to $1 each on May 13, according to the report.
