Approximately 20 wild horses will be offered for adoption at the Josephine CountyFairgrounds in Grants Pass, Oregon, April 15 and 16. The mustang event gives anyone interested the opportunity to get out and see wild horses up close, learn about their history and the BLM’s “Adopt-a-Horse Program”…and maybe even bring one home.
Those interested can view the mustangs and register to adopt one or more on Friday, April 15 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., or Saturday, April 16 beginning at 8:00 a.m. The first come, first served adoption opportunity starts first thing Saturday morning and lasts until 3:00 p.m.
Mustangs to be featured at the Josephine County Fairgrounds event are male and female of mixed ages from various Herd Management Areas in southeast Oregon.
A demonstration by current Norco Extreme Mustang Makeover trainer Brent Rollins and his competition mustang is set for Saturday morning and several other trained mustangs will be on hand throughout the day for show and touch.
All horse enthusiasts are encouraged to consider becoming adopters so these wild horses can be placed in good, safe homes.
With their stamina, hardiness, and quick intelligence, Oregon's wild horses make excellent partners for any discipline.
