Wagon tours and a haying demonstration will be part of a wild burro and horse adoption and educational event being hosted by Wind River Wild Horse Sanctuary on July 29 in Lander, Wyoming.
Two gentled wild burros and one gentled wild horse will be available for adoption through a silent auction at the event, being held in partnership with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Wyoming Honor Farm.
Visitors can view Wind River’s many wild horses via a wagon ride for a small fee and view exhibits showcasing the role of horses in Native American culture at the visitors’ center free of charge, a BLM release said.
The Wind River Wild Horse Sanctuary was born of collaboration between the BLM and the 900-acre Double D Ranch located on the Wind River Indian Reservation to furnish wild horses with a safe, natural environment once removed from public lands. The BLM has helped establish stewardship of wild horses following redistribution of herds in Western range areas.
