The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will host two free public tours of the Indian Lakes Off-Range Wild Horse and Burro Corral in Fallon, Nevada, on Friday, Oct. 27.

The corral is one of three facilities in Nevada that cares for wild horses and burros waiting to be adopted, including wild horses recently gathered from rangelands in Eastern Nevada.

About a 90-minute drive east of Reno, the corral is located at 5676 Indian Lakes Road, Fallon, and is privately owned and operated. The public tours will begin at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and each will last about one hour and accommodate up to 20 people. Tour attendees will be taken as a group by wagon around the facility to learn about it, the animals, and BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Program. Attendees should wear comfortable shoes and clothes; hats and sunscreen are recommended, and photography is welcome. On-site portable toilets will be available.

The Indian Lakes Corral can provide care for up to 3,200 wild horses or burros. The facility encompasses 320 acres containing 43 large holding pens, each measuring 70,000 square feet that will safely hold about 100 horses. The horses receive feed tailored to their needs each day, along with a constant supply of fresh water through automatic watering troughs and free-choice mineral blocks. A veterinarian routinely inspects the horses and provides necessary veterinary care as needed
