If you've always wanted a wild horse, but live far from sagebrush country and think adoption days like the ones I write about in my books are too far away, hold on to your cowgirl hats!
Visit this page for adoption days in North Carolina, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin and Vermont. I checked several flyers and saw adoption fees range from $25 - 125, and the higher end of that range is often for 1-3 year olds who have already been gentled.
Here's the link: http://www.blm.gov/es/st/en/prog/wild_horse_and_burro.html
Just look in the graph box & click to take a look at a flyer for an adoption day near you. Below that box are the requirements for corrals, shelters, etc., but you may already know some of those from DESERT DANCER and other books!
If anyone gets the link on the far right side of the page, for the Internet adoptions to work, let me know! It's been a little skittish with me.
If YOU attend an adoption day, please take notes (pictures, too!) and share the excitement with the rest of us.

I could go to the New Jersey one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If only I could convince my parents to get me a horse :(
the link didnt work for me
Even if you don't leave with a filly in the backseat, you can help the horses by writing about them -- for your school paper, for GirlsHorseClub, maybe a letter to the editor of your local paper?
GO FOR IT :)
