The Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse and Burro Adoption will not be happening in Nevada County this year. Organizers say the Equine Herpes Virus outbreak caused them to delay some of their earlier programs. But, the wild horses will be coming to Napa for a three day education and adoption event, September 17th, 18th, and 19th. Amy Dumas (DEW-mas) is the B-L-M Wild Horse and Burro Program Manager for Northern California and says the wild horses are rounded up on government property when they think the herds to keep the wild horses and burros healthy and protect their habitat.
“The horses come in on Friday. We have the adoption and all of the fun events; training and previous adoptions come in and show off their horses and burrows and we even have a mule over here. We have a parade of adopters and different demonstrations. People show off what they have done with their horses and burrows.”
People will be able to adopt the wild horses and burros all three days of the event. The B-L-M Napa Mustang Days will be at the Napa Valley Horsemen’s Association 1200 Foster road in Napa. for more information people can call 8666-4MUSTANGS.
