Former wild Nevada horses are now the newest members of the Mounted Color Guard, based at Barstow, California.
The horses were trained by state inmates of the Warm Springs Correctional Facility in Carson City, and handed over during a ceremony on Saturday. Fifteen additional horses were also there, up for public adoption.
The training procedure is a special tradition between the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Marine Corps., dating back two decades.
