A wild horse family in McCullough Peaks

Carol Walker, Director of Field Documentation for Wild Horse Freedom Federation and award-winning photographer and author will be on Voices Carry For Animals with host Debbie Dahmer on Blog Talk Radio Tuesday March 1.

Carol will be speaking about her experiences with wild horses over the past 12 years. Her new book Galloping to Freedom chronicles the journey of several families of wild horses rounded up in Wyoming by the BLM and finally reunited at Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary.

Carol is dedicated to keeping our wild horses wild and free on our public lands, and she will speak about the challenges currently facing them, such as the BLM’s plans to sterilize wild mares using cruel and dangerous spaying techniques in holding facilities and in the field. She will also discuss the BLM’s plans (via the new 2017 budget proposal) to send wild horses to state and local agencies in order to funnel them into the slaughter pipeline.

    Halter-Gentled Mustangs, Wild Horses and Burros Available for Adoption in Angels Camp

    ANGELS CAMP, Calif. – More than 20 wild horses, including animals gentled and trained to ride, will be offered for adoption Saturday and Sunday, March 19 and 20, at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds, 101 Frogtown Rd. in Angels Camp.

    The Bureau of Land Management will offer 18 wild horses, two 3-year-old geldings gentled under a trainer incentive program, and three 5-year-old geldings trained by Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center inmates to saddle and ride. Eight burros also will be offered.

    Adoption event gates open at 8 a.m. each day. An auction of the saddle-trained horses is set for Saturday at 9 a.m. in Barn One South at the fairgrounds livestock area.

    Silent bidding for the trained geldings and untrained horses and burros runs from 10 to 11 a.m. with bids starting at $125. Horses and burros not adopted during silent bidding will be available for a $125 adoption fee for the remainder of the event.

    Anyone interested can preview all available animals starting at 4 p.m. Friday, March 18.

    The adoption is being held in conjunction with the Backcountry Horsemen of California’s Rendezvous. That event includes demonstrations, clinics and vendors focused on using horses for back country packing and exploring.

    Horses and burros up for adoption are from public land ranges in northeast California and Nevada. They were removed from the range in the BLM’s work to manage wild populations at sustainable levels.

    The saddle trained horses are from a partnership between the BLM and Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department in which jail inmates train wild horses for adoption and learn skills in equine care and training.

    For additional information on the adoption event or wild horse management, contact the BLM toll free at 1-866-4MUSTANGS or the Litchfield Corrals at (530) 254-6575. Information is also available online at


  2. URGENT: PLEASE NOTE: ‘Wild horses will be transferred to states, etc. and lose what little protections they have. IMO BLM budget needs great reduced and wild horss taken out of holding and returned to their lawful HMA’s.
