Federal agency spurs people to adopt older wild mustangs with a new incentive program
"If it works here, we can assume it would be equally effective elsewhere around the country."
- Paul McGuire, BLM spokesman
A federal agency is hoping older wild mustangs rounded up from the range will find new homes with a program that will offer stipends to owners who adopt them.
The program is being launched in the BLM region that includes New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas, which McGuire described as a "robust market" for wild horse adoptions.
