Shot at the Redding Rodeo Grounds: The BLM Wild Horse and Burro program. The animals are captured on the border of California and Nevada; they are wild Mustangs and burros that are then adopted out. The picture of Galen Todd from Litchfield shows him giving a yearling filly — an American Mustang — her first touch from a human hand. For more information, contact Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Program at 1-866-4-Mustang or visit their site.
