    I have a mare that I believe is Mustang due to her conformation. She is courageous, strong, independent, moody, but definitely knows what she wants and what she doesn’t. She is lovable, but not into the showing love much. I love her more than any person I know. Mustangs are cool!

    I love this breed because it still roams free (like horses should) in some parts of the US. One day I would truly like to own one of these creatures from the BLM…

    I purchased an 8 month old Mustang two years ago. What a wonderful horse he turned out to be. He is curious, intelligent and courageous as well as being friendly and very affectionate. You must be very patient when you first get your Mustang home, but the rewards are well worth it. What a great horse and companion.

    Mustangs are managed by BLM and all have a brand on their left neck. This will tell you the birth date and the id of the horse.
       
    If you truly have a mustang you should have received papers from BLM that signify that you are in ownership of a Mustang. There are regulations related to how many owners a mustang can have and it’s called 3 strikes. For more information on Mustangs please read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mustang_(horse)
       
    There is a lot of information out there regarding these majestic animals. They can be very calm and very loving. My young girls are able to handle our 4 year old gelding without any problems and he follows them around the pasture much like a dog does.
       
    But you have to work on gentling them the right way. Once they are secure with their surroundings and that you will protect them they can turn into wonderful additions to any herd.

    I have a mustang. He just turned 7 years old. He has great dressage training but there are holes in his groundwork. My trainer and myself have taken him back to ‘pony kindergarten’ and he is coming along fine. We are using TTEAM techniques. These are gentle training methods fromulated by a woman named Linda Tellington-Jones. They work wonders on horses. I have also included TTOUCH work coupled with SENSE touch massage. My little mustang, Eclipse, no longer has the deer in the headlights look in his eyes. He still needs work as he has panic moments that have resulted in me coming off when mounted…the ground gets harder the older you get but he has a sweet temperment and is a beautiful boy. the word the article about mustangs seemed to be questioning regarding the Spanish reference is mesteno with a tilda over the n ~ but I don’t know how to put it there when typing on this keyboard. 🙂
