Wild Horses Looking for Good Homes in the Michigan Mitt Tri-Cities Area

SPRINGFIELD, Va., April 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Interior, Bureau of Land Management-Eastern States (BLM-ES) will hold a special wild horse and burro adoption at the Midland County Fairgrounds, 6905 Eastman Road, Midland, Michigan on May 19-20, 2007

"A wonderful selection of animals will be available to good homes for an adoption fee starting at $125," said BLM-ES Director Mike Nedd. There will be about 60 horses and a few burros at this adoption including geldings, mares, and yearling horses. "This is your chance to get that unique wild horse or burro you have always wanted," he said.

The wild horse adoption will be from 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. on Saturday, May 19, 2007. Remaining animals will be available for adoption Sunday, May 20, 2007, from 8 A.M. until Noon. Animals can be viewed by the public between 1 P.M. and 5 P.M. on Friday, May 18, 2007. The arena is located just off Interstate 75, is easy to get to, and is open to the public with no admission charge.

Call 1-800-293-1781 for information and applications for the Midland adoption. Potential adopters are asked to call early to be pre-approved to avoid waiting in line. You can also visit http://www.wildhorseandburro.blm.gov/adoption.htm or http://www.es.blm.gov/whb/ to get requirement information and download an application to become a qualified adopter.

While the adoption process is simple and straightforward, anyone considering adoption of a wild horse or burro should remember that the animals are wild and require gentling and training. Since the Adopt-A-Wild Horse & Burro Program began in 1973, over 216,000 animals have been adopted nationwide, and of those 2,387 were adopted in Michigan.

Directions: From I-75 take Hwy 10 West towards Midland. From Hwy 10, take Eastman Rd Exit (also Business Hwy 10) & go North to Fairgrounds.

The BLM manages more land -- 258 million surface acres -- than any other Federal agency. Most of this public land is located in 12 Western States, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1.8 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, and cultural resources on the public lands.
