BLM Colorado Gathers and Removals

BLM Colorado manages four wild horse and burro herd management areas on approximately 400 thousand acres. The combined appropriate management level for all HMAs in the state is 812 animals.

Since 1971, the BLM has removed nearly 4,400 animals from public rangelands in Colorado as part of its efforts to maintain healthy horses and burros on healthy public rangelands. Animals removed from public rangelands are offered to the public for adoption; unadopted animals are cared for on open pastures for the rest of their lives. Below, find on-going and recently completed gathers, organized by HMA.
