As part of its efforts to provide humane, cost-effective care to wild horses, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) contracts with private landowners for pasture space to accommodate wild horses that have been removed from the range. Pastures vary in size and capacity, but must be large enough to allow for freeroaming behavior and provide all necessary food, water, facilities, personnel and supplies necessary to maintain a minimum of 200 wild horses in a healthy condition.
Many ranchers see the opportunity to care for wild horses not only as a valuable experience and worth-while endeavor, but because it helps to diversify their ranching operations.
Respond to the Request for Proposals
The BLM obtains off-range pasture space for wild horses through an open-bid, competitive solicitation process.
Currently, there is no open solicitation. Please check back soon for future opportunities.
