CHEYENNE, Wyo. — This summer, there are two opportunities to adopt wild horses. On July 19 and Aug. 16, the Bureau of Land Management will offer up to 30 wild horses for adoption or sale at the Elm Creek Corral.

Originally scheduled for Wheatland, the events have moved to Elm Creek, Nebraska. The BLM plans to resume adoptions in Wheatland this September. Gates will open at 8 a.m. on both adoption days, and the process will be first-come, first-served.

The BLM encourages potential adopters to inquire about its Adoption Incentive Program. This program offers $1,000 to individuals who provide good care to a wild horse or burro for at least one year, according to a press release by the organization.

Interested adopters should arrive early to the Elm Creek Corral. The BLM will provide information and assistance to ensure the adoption process runs smoothly. Each event aims to find loving homes for these wild horses, giving them a chance at a better life.

For more details about the adoption events and the incentive program, visit the BLM website, which provides comprehensive information to help potential adopters prepare for their new responsibility.
