[RC] Urgent homes needed for Nevada State gathered Mustangs - Typef
I am passing on some information given to me by a gentleman who runs a Wild
Horse site. The horses mentioned below will be taken to the livestock
auction soon if homes are not found for them. They are not BLM horses but
State roundups and will not be kept indefinitely. The Nevada Department of
Agriculture is not obligated to hold them for any length of time before
disposing of them. Please read the link attached on these horses. Because of
the drought they had been wandering into neighborhoods and causing traffic
accidents so were rounded up.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to read about these horses. If you
know of anyone that you think might be able to help, please pass this
