The Mustang Heritage Foundation (MHF) is excited to welcome Purina® Animal Nutrition as the newest Extreme Mustang Makeover sponsor. Purina® offers research-based feeds and supplements that are developed to help horses achieve greatness. With a variety of specifically tailored formulas, Purina® offers feeds that suit the needs of horses young and old at all performance levels.
“We’re proud to add a superior feed company to our outstanding group of Extreme Mustang Makeover sponsors,” remarked MHF Executive Director Alex Kappert. “Quality feed is a key component in equipping wild horses to make such an incredible transformation during our Extreme Mustang Makeover events, and Purina provides the high-quality feed necessary to help those horses thrive.”
Purina’s team of skilled PhD nutritionists and equine experts work together to build feeds with optimum formulations for every horse, but they are also passionate about helping horses find good homes. By partnering with MHF as an Extreme Mustang Makeover sponsor, Purina will support MHF’s mission of facilitating successful placements for America’s excess wild mustangs and burros.
“As a leader in the industry, Purina Animal Nutrition takes pride in caring for the health and well-being of all horses,” said Jamie Kinnear director of lifestyle marketing for Purina® Animal Nutrition. “Partnering with the Mustang Heritage Foundation was an easy decision because it gives us an opportunity to do just that. We are horse people too, and not only is the Mustang Makeover a really cool event to watch, we are genuinely happy to be a part of the process by providing quality nutrition to these horses.”

About the Bureau of Land Management
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) removes wild horses and burros from public lands to ensure a healthy balance of land and animals. Since 1971, the BLM has placed more than 250,000 wild horses and burros into good homes nationwide. Partnerships, like the Mustang Heritage Foundation, provide the BLM with additional opportunities to place animals into good homes. Interested applicants can attend BLM offsite adoption/sales event, visit a BLM Off-Range Corral, or participate in an Internet adoption/sales event to apply to take a wild horse or burro home!

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of subsurface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM’s mission is to manage and conserve America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield.
