CASPER — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will offer 25-35 untrained wild horses and burros for adoption on November 5 at the Wheatland Off-Range Corral. 

The gates open at 8 a.m. and horses and burros will be adopted on a first come, first served basis with the event scheduled to end at 3 p.m. The facility is located at 1005 North Wheatland Highway, approximately 10 miles north of Wheatland, Wyoming.  

Wild horses available for adoption have been removed from overpopulated herds roaming Western rangelands. As part of our efforts to find every horse and burro a good home, the BLM offers up to $1,000 to adopt an untrained animal.

The November 5 event marks the final adoption of the year at the Wheatland facility. Following the event, the corrals will be temporarily closed to public events for the winter. The closure is in support of current wild horse gather operations occurring in southwestern Wyoming. Dates for 2022 adoption events will be published once the adoption schedule is finalized.
