ADOPTING DIRECTLY FROM BLM HOLDING FACILITIES Also see:
Going directly to a large holding facility is a great way to adopt, especially if you have something particular in mind, want to choose from the largest selection, or don't want to wait for a weekend adoption to come to an area near you.
If you are from out of state, there will be a short (10 days to 2 weeks usually) waiting period after you adopt before you can take your new horse or burro home. This is due to brand inspection and Coggins test requirements for bringing a horse or burro across state lines. Internet Adoption horses and horses at special adoption events and travelling adoptions are ready to go - all paperwork and tests completed.
Be sure to call to make an adoption appointment.
