If you're in the market for one, now is a great time to get a horse, but you have less than half an hour today.
The Wild Horse and Burro Program opened the gates at the South Plains Fairgrounds for equine adoptions Friday morning. Horses can be adopted for as little as $125. There are colts, phillies, mares, and wild mustangs that have been brought in from public lands to be bid on by the public.
For some, the auction is a great way to get a good horse on the cheap, but remember, these are wild horses.
Bill Collier is a rancher from Post. He says cheaper may not actually be better.
"It might be it might not. You may have to pay some medical bills-- getting your leg fixed for riding one of these wild horses," Collier said.
The auction began Friday morning at 10 AM and will end at 6 PM Friday evening. Adoptions will continue Saturday from 8 AM to Noon.
