Wild Horses and Burros
There are about 33,000 wild horses and burros roaming public rangelands managed by BLM — lands they must share with wildlife, and other users such as livestock and recreationists. Learn about the natural and cultural history of these hardy creatures — "living symbols of the American West"-- and the management challenges they present today.
