RU Koda; Class of 2011; RU Sierra

The 2010-2011 Young Horse Program

On September 11, 2010 we acquired 8 mustangs that had been brought to the Sussex County Fairgrounds BLM Wild Horse Adoption event for us. Six of the horses were not in the regular adoption program because they had already been to three adoption events without success, and as such were direct "sales" ("three strikes") horses, as was the case with the 4 we had last year. Sundance Kid and Annie Oakley are being fostered and will be up for adoption after Ag Field day. The others will be sold at our Annual Young Horse Auction on May 1, 2011. The naming theme this year is the Wild West!
