My niece, Mary adopted two wild mustangs from the U.S. Department of Interior Bureau of Land Management's Adopt a Wild Horse or Burro Program. http://www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/prog/wild...
The BLM protects, manages, and controls wild horses and burros under the authority of the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 to ensure that healthy herds thrive on healthy rangelands. The BLM manages these living symbols of the Western spirit as part of its multiple-use mission under the 1976 Federal Land Policy and Management Act . The excess wild horses and burros removed from the range are offered for adoption to qualified people through the BLMs Adopt a Wild Horse or Burro Program. After properly caring for a mustang or burro for one year, adopters are eligible to receive title, or ownership, from the Federal government. While the BLM faces a constant challenge in adopting out enough animals to match the number removed annually from the range, the adoption program is a popular one. In fact, the BLM has placed nearly 225,000 wild horses and burros into private care since the adoption program began in 1971.
