Trapsite Wild Horse Adoption - Stone Cabin Complex

A special and unique Trapsite Wild Horse Adoption is being planned in conjunction with the February 2012 Stone Cabin Complex wild horse gather. The last gather from this HMA was in 2007, which also happens to be the same gather that my Mustang, Augustus, came from. Mustangs from this area are known to be beautiful, smart, level headed horses and many are known as ‘Stone Cabin Greys” with a unique history (like my boy, Gus). A truly unique experience to last a lifetime. Date and location will be set closer to the gather dates. If there is little or no interest in the trapsite adoption before the gather starts, it will be cancelled. Please contact the Tonopah, NV Field Office at 775-482-7800 or Dustin Hollowell (Wild Horse and Burro Specialist) at 775-482-7847 for more information regarding the adoption process.

All wild horses available for adoption will be vaccinated, dewormed, and Coggins tested. Adoptions will be planned to coincide with the Stone Cabin wild horse gather scheduled for February 2012 in central Nevada. Selection and number of wild horses available will be based on demand prior to the adoption. All wild horse adoption requirements apply, including an approved adoption application. Due to the fluid nature of wild horse gathers, it is essential that potential adopters contact the Tonopah Field Office to express interest, submit applications and obtain important details as they become available. The adoptions would be conducted through Lottery Drawing, Competitive Bid, or First-Come, First-Served procedures (based on interest).
