BLM Wild Horse and Burro Center Palomino Valley, Nevada

A new group of mustangs and burros were brought in the day before I visited. Fresh from the range and looking a little thin, they won't be ready for adoption for awhile. Round ups began a bit early this year because of lack of food on the range. There are many horses and burros that are available for adoption now.
