The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Idaho’s wild horse corrals, located south of Boise, will be open on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 29 and 30, from 1 to 3 p.m. so members of the public can view the wild horses that were gathered 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, the Boise District’s acting wild horse and burro specialist.

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 are as follows: 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.”
