March 23, 2013: BLM Auction-Adoption

On March 23, 2013, the BLM brought the Deer Run horses to the auction-adoption. The two mares who foaled at the BLM holding facility at the Carson City prison (BLM holding facility) stayed behind.

The BLM held a silent auction-adoption for each of the horses. The community was unanimous in the desire to keep the herd together and send them to a sanctuary in northern California. AWHPC's Deniz Bolbol submitted her bid for the horses. AWHPC was the only bidder - the community was united in its plan for this family to stay together.
