BLM to Extend Gray Horse ORP Contract?

A new project has been created in ePlanning but no documents have been posted.

The facility provides long-term care and maintenance for up to 2,750 excess animals on a 26,894-acre off-range pasture located on privately lands in Osage County, OK.

The March 2023 Off-Range Facilities Report indicates two such pastures, East and West, with capacities of 1,735 mares and 1,015 geldings, respectively.

Wild horses are removed from their lawful homes on public lands in the western U.S. and sent to these places to die, because most of their food has been assigned to privately owned livestock.

“Excess animals” means more horses than allowed by plan, not more horses than the land can support.
