A lot of you know that these horses were rounded up in September from the West Douglas HA in northwestern Colorado. They are currently being held at the BLM facility in Canon City, CO. They have been processed and are now available for adoption.

I’m sharing a few pictures here – there are more in albums posted on my website: http://www.nickolesphotography.com/f401126130

I am still working on tag numbers (listed below each image) and those will be updated as they can be identified. Not all will have visible tag numbers, but the Pen numbers listed in the galleries are correct. PLEASE SHARE in hopes that some of these horses will find good, caring, forever homes.

Information and links:

These horses are located in Canon City, Colorado. I am not the contact person for specific information. Numbers and links are listed below.

When contacting BLM, you may use any of the photos on my website (they are downloadable) to help with identification for horses that do not have a visible tag number.

Galleries can be shared anywhere including Facebook via the share button options at the top right of the website page.

These horses are being networked – there is no guarantee that a horse pictured will still be available (but please check!). The next adoption day event is planned for January 8th, 2016. Adopters will need to have approved applications and consent to search forms submitted at least 3 days prior to the adoption.

Information about the upcoming adoption day, future dates, how to find out more about individual horses or to download adoption applications and consent to search forms can be found at the links below:

https://www.coloradoci.com The adoption applications and the consent to search form is under the Wild Horse Program, information tab.

Tom and I spent the day at the Canon City, Colorado BLM facility yesterday photographing the Checkerboard horses from Wyoming (Salt Wells, Adobe Town and Great Divide Basin HMA’s). I will be posting images as quickly as I can to a gallery on my website (http://www.nickolesphotography.com/f106188461) entitled “Canon City BLM Checkerboard Horses” that can be shared anywhere including Facebook. Below are just a few pictures of some of the horses waiting for new homes (please share). Tags beginning with a 7 are from Salt Wells. Those beginning with a 9 are from Divide Basin. I will need to get clarification on Adobe Town horses, but I believe they will also have tags beginning with a 7. These horses are being networked so there is no guarantee that a horse pictured will still be available. The next adoption day event is November 21st (but you can call to adopt at anytime with an approved adoption application). Information about the event, how to find out more about individual horses or to download adoption forms can be found at these links:

Through the Canon City BLM office, the first 150 miles of shipping is FREE! There are group shipping options as well for folks that are interested in the horses, but live a distance away. Please contact the BLM office directly for specifics.

DSC_4927-sThis little guy is affectionately known as “Bootleg.” He was an orphan but the BLM folks found a willing mare to “adopt” him. He’s a flashy one. Very young. Tag #7823 from Salt Wells.
