The Bureau of Land Management’s Rock Springs wild horse holding facility is temporarily closed in support of upcoming wild horse gathering operations in the Great Divide Basin, Adobe Town, Salt Wells Creek, White Mountain and Little Colorado herd management areas in southern Wyoming.
According to the BLM, horses gathered from these herd management areas will be transported to the Rock Springs facility, where they will be given time to become comfortable in their new environment and receive veterinary evaluation and care. The closure will remain in place until after the BLM completes this gathering and transports the horses to the facility. The BLM stated they will announce when the facility will reopen once they have that information.
During the closure, the facility will not host public tours or adoptions. The public viewing kiosk at the nearby overlook will remain open. This viewing area provides a unique opportunity for visitors to observe all the wild horses on site.
