The Bureau of Land Management is host their adoption event this weekend at the Ector County Coliseum. For just $125 you can take one of these beautiful animals home to become a member of your family.

The Bureau of Land Management manages and protects wild horses and burros, both on and off the range. Then do their best to find them great homes.

The adoption process is quite simple. There are a few requirements:

To adopt a wild horse or burro, you must:

  • be at least 18 years of age (Parents or guardians may adopt a wild horse or burro and allow younger family members to care for the animal.);
  • have no prior conviction for inhumane treatment of animals or for violations of the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act;
  • demonstrate that you have adequate feed, water, and facilities to provide humane care for the number of animals requested; and,
  • show that you can provide a home for the adopted animal in the United States.
