Wild horses, burros available at Nicholas County sale

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A federal program is offering dozens of wild horses and burros for sale this week in West Virginia.

The Charleston Daily Mail reports about 40 animals will be available Friday and Saturday at the Good Evening Ranch in the Nicholas County community of Canvas.

The animals are up to 5 years old and are available through the Bureau of Land Management's Wild Horse and Burro Program. All animals have had health screenings, including vaccinations.

Animals under 3 years old are available for a minimum of $125, and those 3 and up are available for $25. Prospective buyers must be at least 18 years old and have corrals, shelters and trailers.

More than 230,000 animals have been adopted nationwide since the federal program began in 1971.
