Crowds of people lined up in the parking lot of Quality Market to buy 25 cent hotdogs, cotton candy and ice-cream Friday and Saturday in Delta.


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) today announced it is offering a public tour of the Axtell Contract Off-Range Corrals (facility) in Axtell, Utah on Wednesday, April 19, 2017.  The facility is one of two locations in Utah that provides care to wild horses removed from the range.

This is the second public tour offered since the privately owned and operated facility opened in June 2015.  The tour will be open 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time. Tour attendees will have an opportunity to tour the facility, observe approximately 1000 wild horses currently held at the facility, including the 433 wild horses associated with the Sulphur Herd Management Area that occurred in January 2017 and general discussion about the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Program (WHB).


The facility is located at 13500 South 10490 West (mile marker 235.2 on Highway 89) in Axtell, Utah.  Approximately 6 miles south of Gunnison, Utah or 8 miles north of Salina, Utah.  Please note:  some map applications do not recognize this address.   The facility can provide care for up to 1,200 wild horses and encompasses 32 acres containing 40+ holding pens, in various sizes. The horses receive an abundance of feed tailored to their needs each day, along with a constant supply of fresh water through automatic watering troughs. Free choice mineral block supplements are also provided to the animals in each pen. A veterinarian routinely inspects the horses and provides necessary medical care as needed. The BLM strives to place horses removed from the range into good, private homes. Horses at the Axtell facility are made available to the public for adoption or sale throughout the year on the BLM’s WHB Internet Adoption site, off-site adoption events and through the BLM’s Adoption or Sales Program across the country. Horses will not be available for adoption during the public tour; however, if there is interest in an animal viewed during the tour, adoption arrangements can potentially be coordinated through BLM personnel and the Delta Wild Horse & Burro Facility.
