This year’s gather of Devil’s Garden Wild Horses is now complete. With the widest variety of color and size so far, the newly gathered horses promise to delight. Adopters and purchasers will not be able to go to the corrals in person to select horses for the time being. However, a virtual adoption event schedule will help the 2020 DG kiddos find their new families and happy homes.
Time is needed to make sure all horses are healthy, get vaccinations, anti-worming medicine and identification microchips implanted. All stallions will be gelded. Time for horses to settle and adjust to a new routine is also essential. Please be patient…

- Group 1: Tuesday Dec 1 Mares 1-4
