OnFebruary 18th the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) held their “trap site” adoption of Stone Cabin/Saulsbuy horses. The event was held adjacent to the temporary holding area used during the roundup operation.
Seven of the twelve animals offered for adoption found homes. The club foot went to a rescue (I will fill in the name after I go through text messages) along with a young filly that became his companion.
After members of the public completed paperwork horses were sorted and freezemarked.
Haltering and freeze branding was observed by the public. Handling was done well and staff did not rush to load.
Nevada Horse Power, the non-profit that is partially funded by sales of license plates, was there to provide transportation for some of the adopters.
The next morning the animals that were not adopted were loaded into a BLM trailer the following morning. They were taken to Palomino Valley Center north of Reno where they are available for adoption.
Full roundup report will be posted soon.
note: BLM gather reports have not been updated since Feb. 14th. Yes, I am aware and will get the information to you that I have as fast as I can.
