The U.S. Bureau of Land Management will hold a wild horse and burro event providing wild horses and possibly a few yearling and burros July 12 and 13 at Wild Horse and Burro Off-Range Corral, 22295 Sheep Farm Rd. in Ewing.

Yearling and burros may not always be available at the event. The animals will be available for selection from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday. All animals available have been examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, de-wormed and blood-tested.

Purchasers receive immediate ownership of the animal on the day of the event. Purchasers should provide adequate feed, care and an enclosed area such as a corral, barn, stall and other appropriate facilities. The facility may also be a pasture that is suitable for maintaining animals. The BLM is committed to the safety and health of the nation's wild horses and burros, and requires animals to be transported in a stock-type, step-up trailer.

Applicants may submit applications at the site until the close of the event on Saturday. For more information, call 866-468-7826 or visit wildhorseandburro.blm.gov.
