So what happened to the wild horses Davis purchased from the BLM? The agency can’t say for sure. It does not hold onto the titles of wild horses acquired through its sale program as it does with horses that are adopted. Officials also have no process for following up to make sure buyers use animals as they claim they will in applications. In the interview at the ranch, Davis said he had found most of the mustangs “good homes” on properties mostly in the southeastern states. Asked if he would provide records of these sales, he responded, “Ain’t no way in hell.”
The Bureau of Land Management, the agency tasked with protecting wild horses and cattle and their grazing lands, sold 1,794 federally-protected wild horses to a Colorado rancher who sent them to slaughter, a new report confirmed.
according to the report from the Interior Department’s Office of Inspector General
We determined that BLM did not follow current law
The OIG declined to investigate Mr. Davis‘ ties to Mr. Salazar.

Just a quick follow up to an older crime.
So it turns out, as some suspected, many of the horses ended up being slaughtered in Mexico.
