Mustang adoption called a success

The Wild Horse and Burro Adoption at Celebration Arena was a success, said the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

The event last weekend saw the adoption of 68 of the 79 animals brought to Priceville.

“Alabamians have always opened their hearts and homes to the wild horses and this weekend was no exception,” a bureau press release said.

The next closest adoption will be Oct. 12-14 at the Tennessee Livestock Center in Murfreesboro.
