Mustangs and burros from the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Wild Horse and Burro Program (WHBP) will be at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC), in Casper, Wyoming, for a free event on July 9.

The event, a Patio Talk titled “Up Close & Personal: The WHBP,” will run from 1-2 p.m. The mustangs and burros will arrive at 10 a.m. and be available for visits from the public at that time.

The WHBP was established in 1971 for “the protection, management, and control of wild-free roaming horses and burros on public lands.” For the last several years, groups including Wyoming Branded, United States Wild Horse and Burro Association, and Wyoming Mustangs have worked together to educate the public about wild mustangs and burros. Representatives from these organizations will also be present at the event.

Some of the animals, in accordance with the WHPB, are gentled, and then put up for adoption at BLM events throughout the year. Previous adopters will be present from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. to discuss their experiences with interested members of the public. A formal question and answer period will also follow the Patio Talk
