Boise BLM Wild Horse Corrals Open to Public this Thursday and Friday
A Good Opportunity to view the wild horses that will be available for adoption November 6 & 7
BOISE, ID The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wild Horse Corrals located south of Boise will be open on Thursday and Friday from 1- 3 p.m. so members of the public can view the wild horses that were gathered from the Owyhees following the Soda Fire.
There has been a great deal of interest in these wild horses, and we are pleased to offer this opportunity for the public to view the horses, and hopefully prepare to adopt one next weekend, said Clay Stott, Boise District Wild Horse and Burro Specialist (acting).
There will be approximately 30 young horses available for adoption. Many of the horses at the corrals will be cared for until they can be released back to the Hardtrigger or Sands Basin Herd Management Areas once the range recovers and rehabilitation objectives have been met.
Directions to Boise BLM Wild Horse Corrals: From I-84, exit on Orchard Street (Exit 52) and go south for approximately 1.7 miles, which turns into West Gowen Road. Continue for 0.5 mile. Turn right (south) on Pleasant Valley Road and go approximately 4 miles. Turn right at the Wild Horse Corrals.
The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM’s mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2014, the BLM generated $5.2 billion in receipts from public lands.

The horse owners in our State do not understand what an economic and political force they are. Many legislators do not realize this either. Fortunately some key legislators understand and appreciate the Horse Industry and its huge economic impact on our State. This is not lost on our Governor or Lt. Governor. Continue reading
IDAHO HORSE EXPO’S PRIVATE TREATY HORSE SALE
APRIL 15,16 &17,2016
WHERE YOU MAKE YOUR OWN DEAL
“The solution to the frustrating procedure of buying or selling a horse.”
Consider the idea of buying a car, home or any major appliance, only through an auction. You have little idea of the history of the item and you have only 2 to 3 minutes to make up your mind Certainly, not an ideal situation, but many of us purchase horses in that very manner, only to get the horse home and find it is not suitable for our intended purpose.
Although the logical alternative to finding horses is to buy directly from the owner by going through publications, scheduling appointments (and finding that the horse is not what was represented); this can be time consuming and frustrating. If only there was an “equine department store” or a “car lot for horses” where you could go and try out prospects and talk to the owners! The Blue Ribbon Private Treaty Horse Sale offers this sensible solution to both sellers and purchasers alike. Continue reading

Horse owners are familiar with a Coggins test—that piece of paper required for entry into most horse shows and sales and/or for interstate horse transport. But many overlook the fact that this piece of paper, which serves as proof that the horses has tested negative for equine infectious anemia (EIA), is essential to protecting the health of the national equine population. A number of recent EIA positives in racing Quarter Horse populations in California and Texas has increased the need for awareness about this potentially fatal blood borne disease of horses, donkeys, and mules.
