Hey, cowboy, did you happen to misplace horses in Emery County? Well, they're about to be impounded by the Bureau of Land Management.

BLM spokesman Mike Tweddell said Tuesday that the owner or owners of the quartet of equine interlopers have five days to claim the animals after formal legal publication of the agency's Notice of Intent to Impound. After that, the geldings — two Pintos, a Buckskin, and a Palomino — will likely end up at auction in Salina.

BLM officials were told about the horses being spotted grazing, without permission, on the Islander Allotment early in October. On Oct. 15, a BLM rangeland specialist located and inspected the horses but found no identifiable markings.

"The BLM is seeking help from the public to reach the animals' owner," Tweddell said

Anyone with information is asked to call BLM at 435-636-3609.
