The President’s Executive Order on Protecting the Federal Workforce, and those interacting with us, requires all Federal employees, contractors, and others in Federal buildings and on Federal lands to wear masks, maintain physical distance, and adhere to other public health measures identified in the CDC guidelines. Mask up and help BLM continue to ensure continuity of service, meet the mission and serve our communities. Do your part to ensure continuity of government services and put COVID-19 behind us.

BLM New Mexico manages two wild horse and burro herd management areas on nearly 29 thousand acres. The combined appropriate management level for all HMAs in the state is 83 animals.
Since 1971, the BLM has removed approximately 700 animals from public rangelands in New Mexico 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.
