BLM Litchfield Corrals Reopen for Adoptions


The Bureau of Land Management’s Litchfield corrals has thawed out. The Wild Horse and Burro refuge has reopened for animal adoptions and purchases after icy conditions forced the stables closed for safety reasons.

Monday through Friday from 8 to 4 pm, you can tour the corrals and view available animals. If you wish to adopt or purchase one of the more than 300 wild burros and about 400 wild horses, you will have to make an appointment with the BLM. Most of the herds are from a recent gathering in the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area northeast of Susanville.

More information on visiting the Litchfield Corrals and making adoption or purchase appointments is available by contacting the corrals at 530-254-6575.
