All the mustangs that are part of Mustang Medicine's program are adopted from the U.S. Department of Bureau Land Management Wild Horse and Burro Program (BLM).
Wild horses and burros are defined by federal law as unbranded, unclaimed, free-roaming horses or burros found on public lands in the United States. Most wild horses and burros living today are descendants of animals that were released or escaped from Spanish explorers, ranchers, miners, the U.S. Cavalry and Native Americans. There are over 88,000 wild horses and burros currently in these areas.
The BLM maintains a network of permanent off-range corrals and hosts hundreds of off-site adoption events each year to find homes for excess animals.
