RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Seventeen wild horses and one wild burro have found new homes after being gentled by inmate trainers at the Wyoming Honor Farm in Riverton.

The recent adoption of the horses continues the effort by the Bureau of Land Management and Honor Farm to place excess wild horses and burros into private care in order to maintain healthy animals on healthy public rangelands.

The Ranger in Riverton reports (https://bit.ly/2f5yak0 ) that about 100 potential adopters and interested onlookers gathered for the latest adoption. Winning bids for individual horses ranged from $125 to the high bid of $2,700. Average winning bid for the 18 adopted animals was $682.

Two adoptions are held at the Honor Farm each year.
