State Of Nevada Looking For People To Adopt Wild Horses

The state of Nevada is reaching out to people who may be interested in adopting a wild horse captured in the Virginia Range near Reno. Deniz Bolbol with the California-based "Return To Freedom – American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign," which handles the adoptions, says fifteen of the animals were recently rounded up and are being housed at the Carson City prison. She says owning a horse is a long-term commitment.
 
Bolbol says several of the horses have been "halter-broke," which means they can be haltered and led around, and at least two of the animals have been saddled. She adds there are several foals and yearlings, and the rest of the animals are probably between five and eight years of age.
