Horses up for adoption for as little as $1 in California


After 30 days of being offered for sale with limitations at $25, the USDA Forest Service now has horses up for adoption with limitations at $1.

“This action is not meant to diminish the value of these amazing animals at all,” said District Ranger Lisa Spahr. “We hope it will help find good homes for the horses by encouraging trainers to purchase and sell them for a profit, after starting them for people who are not able to take on training a wild horse by themselves.”

The horses available are wild horses gathered from the Modoc National Forest because of overgrazing and they are kept at Double Devil Wild Horse Corrals. The horses are believed to be relatives of domesticated horses.

Beginning in November, 344 horses were available and 160 have found new homes.
