The Bureau of Land Management manages wild horses and burros to oversee that they thrive on the rangelands. The BLM manages a vast area of Heard Management Areas, they strive to maintain a healthy herd population on these lands and when they exceed the appropriate management level they are removed and sent for adoption or to off-range pasture. The herd can double in size every 4 years. This adoption was held in Salina, there are adoption site all around the country. Along with the adoption, there was a wild horse show.
All wild horses and burros are branded with a freeze mark. The left side of the neck is shaved and the symbols are applied with an iron chilled in liquid nitrogen. The mark uses a series of angles and alpha-symbols that can not be altered. The hair on the neck will grow back white.
No, I didn’t adopt anyone.
