The Oregon horses for this adoption range from 6 to 21 years old and come from the Stinkingwater, Beatys Butte, and Warm Springs herd management areas.
BLM posted this statement concerning the horse adoptions:
All of the Oregon horses in this event are also eligible for the Adoption Incentive Program, which gives $1,000 to qualified applicants who adopt an untrained animal. Several horses are also available for direct purchase through the BLM’s Sale Authority Program.
Horses adopted or purchased during the July Online Corral event will be available for pick-up from numerous locations across the country, including Oregon, Mississippi, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Illinois.
In 2018, the BLM released its new “Online Corral” system – an internet-based auction site geared toward increasing the number of wild horses and burros placed into private care each year. The website features a modern, streamlined interface, new filtering features, and an interactive web map. Users submit and track the status of their applications directly through the website. Approved applicants can browse available animals and participate in the competitive bid event.
All horse enthusiasts are encouraged to consider becoming adopters so these wild horses can be placed in good, safe homes.
