Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - Getting a horse for $125 is unheard of, "Through the silent bid process they go up from there," said Scott Fluer, the Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse and Burro Adoption.

But at the Wyoming State Fair it could be a reality. "We've been coming every year for the last five years and bringing wild horses to adopt," said Fluer.

Every few years the Bureau of Land Management gathers the horses living on state land trains them to the point of trusting people. "You've got to gentle them down and build trust with that horse first," said Steve Mantle, BLM Horse Trainer.

These horses are used for a variety of reasons and have their own personalities. "Wild horses have a lot of those unique traits but each one of them is their own individual," said Fluer.

That's why they are very popular among families who own them. "My mom, my dad, myself, my little brother has a mustang, my sister just got a mustang. We've had mustangs forever and i don't think that's ever going to change," Ella Fluer, a wild horse owner.
