The 24th Annual Wild Horse and Burro Expo in Belton, Texas, will be hosted by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) on Oct. 12.

The expo is to feature a wild horse and burro sale with 50 wild horses and burros eligible for direct purchase to good homes. The animals offered at the event are adult and yearling horses and burros that once roamed free on public lands in the West.

If you are wanting to purchase a horse or burro, the BLM asks that you have adequate feed, care and an enclosed area, such as a corral, barn, stall, etc. The facility may also be a pasture that is suitable for maintaining animals.

The sale will start from noon to 6 p.m. on Oct. 12 and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 13.

On Saturday at 9 a.m., there will be a horse show featuring trained wild horses and burros.

Since 1973, the BLM has placed more than 235,000 of these animals in approved homes across the country.
