Wild Horses and Burros are Coming to Murfreesboro and Need Good Homes!!

SPRINGFIELD, Va., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) invites you to head out to Murfreesboro, Tennessee, on October 12-14, 2007 and take home a mustang or burro from America's rangelands. And as an added bonus, any applicant who is approved for two or more animals and adopts a full fee animal first, may adopt a second animal for just $25.

The 3-day event features approximately 80 wild horses and burros, ranging in age from 5 years old and younger. In addition to nice, healthy yearlings, mares, studs and geldings, there will be a limited number of jack and jenny burros. Adopt an animal at the full adoption fee of $125 and get a buddy animal for an adoption fee of $25.

The application process is simple and can be completed onsite throughout the event. Beginning Friday, October 12, from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. stop by and pick out your favorites! Head on back Saturday, October 13, and be ready to adopt your favorite through the oral bid adoption starting about 9:30 a.m. Minimum adoption fees start at only $125 for animals 2 years old and younger and $25 for animals 3 years old and up.

Following the oral bid adoption, remaining animals are available for adoption on a walk-up basis until 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, October 14, from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m.

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.
