—The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will hold a wild horse and burro event providing wild horses and possibly a few yearling and burros, June 15 -16, 2018, at National Cattle Congress, 275 Ansborough Avenue, Waterloo, Iowa. Yearling and burros may not always be available at the event. The animals will be available for selection on Friday, from 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, from 8:00 a.m. -
noon & 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m... The event will potentially include sale-eligible animals. Purchasers receive immediate ownership of the animal on the day of the event.

Wild horses are known for their sure-footedness, strength, intelligence and endurance. With kindness and patience, these animals can be trained for many uses. All animals available have been examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, de-wormed, and blood-tested.

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 that animals be transported in a stock-type, step up trailer.

TJ Clibborn, a horse trainer experienced in gentling wild mustangs, will be on site demonstrating gentling and training techniques on Friday and Saturday. He is a member of the Trainer Incentive Program and has trained wild horses for Extreme Mustang Makeover competitions sponsored by the Mustang Heritage Foundation, BLM’s partner in managing America’s Living Legends.

Applicants may submit applications at the site until the close of the event on Saturday. For more information about selecting one of America’s Living Legends, call 1-866-4MUSTANGS (1-866-468-7826) or visit HERE.
