ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) - The only federal wild horse short-term holding facility in Wyoming is closed until February for tours and adoptions.

The federal Bureau of Land Management says it’s because of bad weather and unspecified contract issues.

The facility houses about 700 wild horses. Most have been gathered from Wyoming herd management areas.

The facility also serves as a rest stop for wild horses being transported east from western states.

The facility is expected to reopen Feb. 29.
