SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE

The public is invited to attend BLM’s Silver Saddle Saturday wild horse and burro event at the Silver Saddle Ranch in Carson City this Saturday, Feb. 20 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.  The family event is free and will include six yearlings available for adoption on a first-come, first-served basis at the reduced adoption fee of just $50 per horse.

There will be several hands-on learning activities and opportunities to meet past wild horse and burro adopters and their horses.  BLM’s trusty mascot burro, Josie, will be on-hand to greet the public as well.

Potential adopters can obtain approval to adopt on-site at the event, and BLM is offering adopters free delivery within a 400-mile radius.

The Silver Saddle Ranch is located at 4901 Carson River Road in Carson City, Nevada.  For more information call BLM at: (775) 475-2222.
