The U.S. Bureau of Land Management will hold a wild horse and burro adoption in Seguin, Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 21-23. The three-day event at the Guadalupe County Ag & Livestock Fairgrounds will feature dozens of spectacular animals.

The adoption schedule is Thursday, 2-6 p.m.; Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, 8 a.m. until noon

Adult and yearling horses and burros that once roamed free on public lands in the West will be offered for adoption.

Application approval is required for adoption and can be done on-site. To qualify to adopt, one must be at least 18, with no record of animal abuse. Adopters must have a minimum of 400 square feet of corral space per animal, with free access to food, water, and shelter. A 6-foot corral fence is required for adult horses, 5 feet for yearlings, and 4-1/2 feet for burros. All animals must be loaded in covered stock-type trailers with swing gates and sturdy walls and floors. The Bureau of Land Management staff will be on hand to assist adopters through the short application process.

All animals will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis for the minimum adoption fee of $125 (set by law). A one-time $500 care-and-feeding allowance (or adoption incentive) is available to adopters of horses at least 4 years old. Younger horses, burros, and trained animals are not eligible for this incentive.
