Adopt a wild horse event in the Crossroads

Posted: Updated:
One organization is having a unique sell in the Crossroads.
It's one some residents have looked forward to for a long time.
"you can adopt one or buy one," says Pat Hofmann, Bureau of Land Management.

The Bureau of Land Management is having a wild horse and burro event at the Lavaca Expo Center. Pat Hofmann tells the purpose of the event.
"these are wild mustangs, there are gathered off the public lands out west., we have gathered them, processed them and we brought them down here to find good homes for them," adds Hofmann.
They hold these events once a month all over Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, and Oklahoma.
Hofmann explains the different recommendations for you to get an animal

" We do recommend that you have six foot tall corrals, and real good pins and corrals and shelter. You need to have a covered stock trailer, when you come get one so you can hall it home. Come on down we have all the applications and all the information at the adoption," explains Hofmann.
I asked Hofmann how many animals could you take home from the event.
"if you have the facillites, you can take home up to four.. Well either one some animals are for sale and some we adopt. If the animals have been to three or more adoptions, that makes them eligible for sale," says Hofmann.
In attendance were some eager buyers.

"my husband has been wanting to get a mustang and train it and everything for the mustang heritage training program, where you just have a month to train the horse, so that's why we came over here and i got to pick out the horse for him," tells Carol Boehme, Resident.
Boehme tells me how she feels about picking out a horse.
"Gosh yes, i wish i could pick him up right now," declares Boehme
If you missed the event today, relax they will be there tomorrow from 8am until noon.
and if you cant make that one, they will have another event in Robstown, Texas in march.
