The BLM removes hundreds of horses from public lands each year to prevent the range from getting over-crowded, and they usually send the horses to long-term pastures in the mid-west.</p><p>Dennis Carpenter is the BLM&rsquo;s Field Manager in Rawlins. He says keeping the horses here should be slightly cheaper, because the ranch will be open to tourists &ndash; for a fee.</p> Thu, 05 Apr 2012 15:38:28 +0000 Willow Belden 22186 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org BLM proposes horse sanctuary near Laramie
