Diet of the American Mustang
"America's wild horses have adapted to surviving on native grasses and shrubs available. We know they eat, but the question is, what do they eat?"
"What do wild horses eat? According to a University of Wyoming rangeland study, wild horses eat a combination of grasses, shrubs and forbs."
"It is a great rangeland grass because of its ability to thrive on disturbed areas and poor soils."
"It is a plant that is well adapted to desert life and very hardy. It can be identified by its small yellow flowers when in bloom."
"This beautiful perennial is native to the Great Plains and western United States. It is one of many forbs that can often be found where wild horses roam."
