Red Alert: 65 Three-Strike wild horses in Fallon, Nevada need safe homes! #Fallon65

Three-Strike wild horses often show up in the slaughter pipeline

RENO, Nev. (May 5, 2017)— Protect Mustangs encourages the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to make it easy on the public to view and buy the 65 three-strikes wild horses, known as the #Fallon65, during the two free public tours of the Indian Lakes Off-Range Wild Horse and Burro Corral in Fallon, Nevada, on Friday, May 12. This is a private facility that is closed most of the year to the public therefore adoptions are limited. Sales appear limited to 4 wild horses per person per year. Title is awarded at the sale.

“We hope the 65 Three-Strike wild horses at the Fallon Facility will be easy to identify in separate pens so the public can find ones to buy and get them out to safety,” says Anne Novak, executive director of Protect Mustangs. “This is a golden opportunity for the public to take these wild horses off the BLM’s hands.”

The public can download the sales forms here: https://www.blm.gov/sites/blm.gov/files/wildhorse_howtoadopt_doc4.pdf and get pre approved before attending the tour. If you have any questions about the form call (775) 475-2222. If you find you need help to get through the application process or if your calls and questions aren’t being answered by BLM, please email Contact@ProtectMustangs.org or call (415) 531-8454. Protect Mustangs has helped many adopters and buyers succeed with their applications.

About a 90-minute drive east of Reno, the holding corrals are located at 5676 Indian Lakes Road, Fallon, and is privately owned and operated. The public tours will begin at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and each will last about one hour and accommodate up to 20 people. Attendees should wear comfortable shoes and clothes; hats and sunscreen are recommended, and photography is welcome. To register for the tour or to get driving directions to the facility, please contact the BLM at (775) 475-2222.

Check back for updates. We will post the ID numbers of the #Fallon65 when we receive them. Some wild horses have been chosen on the recent internet adoption and others have acquired 3-Strike status. Stay tuned for the final count.

  3. What is the latest about the horses? How many still need to be adopted? I’m tweeting about it daily and would like to post an update. Thank you.

  4. Hi, I spoke with Jeb at BLM – I believe at Fallon- and asked if a mare 8850 in Palimino Valley would be on the 3 strikes list if she wasn’t bought at the online auction. I said I heard that if a horse was offered 3 times and not taken then if was put on the list to be disposed of. Also asked what she did to get an angry reaction from someone standing by the videotaping of her – “I DEFINITELY do not recommended HER!”
    He said that person meant she wasn’t big enough for the Mustang exhibition they were looking for a horse for. 13 Hands? I said . only 2 are more than that in the lineup. One is 17 years old allegedly.
    He hesitated and said that the 3 strikes idea has been proposed for the next year.
    Yesterday I had asked about seeing the foals and yearlings gathered in Nov. and Dec. for 2916 as I possibly will adopt one.
    Of over 50 gathered there are only 20 left. He said not many left to choose from.
    “The best ones were shipped back East”.
    20 babies and young ones need homes people. I am worried about this ” best ones” statement- what is going on with the not so ones? And any advice to me if I do adopt a young one?
    Thanks.
