The BLM is inviting the public to a wild-horse adoption event this weekend at the Idaho Horse Expo in Nampa.

     Since February, members from 4-H Clubs from around the Treasure Valley have trained their mustangs to lead, load in a horse trailer and pick up their feet. Each of these young wild horses will be available for adoption on Sunday, April 14, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at the Ford Idaho Horse Park, 16200 Idaho Center Blvd. in Nampa.

     Horses available for adoption can be viewed in the Expo barns on the north end of the facility or at the BLM booth. On Saturday in the Main Arena, from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., the 4-H members will present their horses in a trail challenge. On Sunday, the horses can be viewed from 9 a.m. until the final adoption preview and silent bidding process in the round pen from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
