(Tooele-AP) -- For those with the patience to "gentle" the wild out of horses and burros, Saturday was a good day to find a new friend.

There were about 90 wild animals up for adoption during the weekend in Tooele, collected as part of the U-S Bureau of Land Management's attempts to preserve undomesticated herds on public lands by limiting their numbers to only what the land can support.

Of about 90 animals on offer Saturday, 32 were adopted.

The BLM's next adoption will be October fourth at its Butterfield Canyon center in Herriman. It will feature colts between the ages of six months and a year old.
