Wild Horse Adoption in Ewing
EWING -- Wild horse and burro lovers have the opportunity this weekend to adopt one of their own. The Bureau of Land Management has brought down 54 wild horses and burros from Nebraska to Ewing. They range in age and size.
Specialists say they round up the animals in the 10 western states when they start to overpopulate the region.
"Some people just have them as pasture ornaments, some people train them and go to top level dressage clinics. Or they do rein competitions or shows," explains horse and burro specialist Kristen Fontaine.
Each animal only costs $125 to adopt. Typically, the BLM only stops by Ewing once a year, but they will be back this year in July.
