As part of its responsibility to manage, protect, and control wild horses and burros, the Bureau of Land Management is soliciting bids for one or more new pasture facilities — west of the Mississippi.
Each pasture facility must be able to provide humane care for and maintain at least 1,000 wild horses — up to as many as 2,500 over a 1-year period. And that’s with an option under BLM contract for an additional four 1-year extensions.
The BLM needs additional space for wild horses placed in long-term holding facilities, all of which are currently in Kansas and Oklahoma.
