LONG-TERM PASTURES,

located mostly in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska, offer long-term (usually for life) care of wild horses who are deemed unadoptable. This may be due to age, temperament, health issues, behavioral issues, or simply because the short-term adoption and holding centers were overcrowded and not enough horses were being adopted.

Once a horse goes to LTH (Long-Term Holding, although the word "Pastures" is replacing the word "holding") it is not available for adoption. This page is included just to show people what LTH actually looks like. BLM usually offers a couple of public tours each year.
