Meet the Mustangs:
Buckskin Mare: We have nicknamed this little lady "Sassy", but it is not her official name. She is a very spunky and fast girl, she would make an amazing speed based mount. She surprised us with the fact that despite being completely wild, she shows no fear towards humans, in fact she quite likes us, coming up to the fence nickering at us when we pass by. Over all she should be pretty easy to handle and train.
Seal Bay Tobiano Gelding: This is "Toby" as we have taken to calling him. Another quite spunk one, however far more shy around people. His proud demeanor makes him quite the charmer and whoever gets him should have no problem falling in love with his silly quarks, like playing with any rope he can find. He has very light and floaty movements so Dressage wouldn't be out of the question, maybe even jumping. Toby has been sent to his trainer.
Buttermilk Buckskin Mare: "Lizzy" is a very special girl to me personally. She has such a sweet temperament you would think that she was born in captivity, She has minor problems with her vision as we have learned, so she will need a confident and experienced trainer to help her reach her full potential.
Bay Mare with Birdcatcher marks: "Birdy" is a calm, reserved mare. She is the 'mother' of the group, often times seen disciplining the younger horses and sometimes even the lead mare. She has a very wonderful personality, but can be stubborn and hot headed if she doesn't want to work that day, however she is mostly cooperative. Birdy has been sent to her trainer.
Bay roan Colt: This little man is nicknamed "Speedy". Its hard to find him standing still for more than a minute while he catches his breath before he is back at it, zipping around terrorizing the rest of the heard. It is believed that he is "Birddy's" colt, however we cant tell for sure. "Speedy" is hard to catch due to his hyper tendencies and he has a hard time staying focused so a calm, patient trainer is recommended to work with his attention span and help him learn to focus. Speedy has been sent to his trainer.
Chestnut Appaloosa Mare: This little lady is near and dear to me, I have taken to calling her "Sweet Heart" or "Sweetie" She is extremely shy, but once she comes out of her shell she is an amazing little mare. She is very quiet and willing, so she should be good for a trainer of any experience level. We recommend letting her take a few days to warm up to her trainer before they start working with her. Just spending 10 or 15 minutes out in the fields with her helps. Sweetie has been sent to her trainer.
Black Appaloosa Mare: This is "Lucy". She is a slow paced horse, making her good for western pleasure. She is not stubborn, however she has a very low motivation to do anything other than graze. I have found that the occasional carrot or peppermint makes her much more willing to work. She would make a wonderful companion horse to any older horses, or any horse with vision problems, as she has buddied up with "Lizzy" most of the time, helping her around the paddock.
Chestnut Mare: "Lucyfer". You all know the saying, "Hell knows no fury like a chestnut mare", Well that saying rings true with this little lady. She has run off every stable hand that comes near her, squealing, kicking, biting, and everything in between. This little mare needs someone that can help her curve her bad behavior and help her mellow out without breaking her spirits. Lucyfer has been sent to her trainer.
Flea Bitten Grey Gelding: "Snowman" was gelded late, so he acts more like a stallion than a gelding. He is hot tempered, rude, and pushy, though once he learns his place he settles down. He can not be pastured with mares because he becomes agressive towards other males and his handlers, so we recommend pasturing him with other geldings that he has had time to get to know before being turned out. Snowman has been sent to his trainer.
Light Dappled Grey Mare: Yet another horse that is dear to my heart. "Stormy" is a stunning, and intelligent mare. She is very good at problem solving and quite the escape artist, so you must be careful with how you pasture and stall her. She will find a way out. I recommend Duct Tape. Lost of it. Because of her intelligence she is also a fast learner, and she picks up on what you ask her to do faster than any horse I've met before her.
Chestnut Gelding: "Cascade" is your typical, lazy gelding. He plods along at such a pace that even turtles out run him. He seems to love kids, getting more excited, but never hyper when he sees them. Maybe he just loves all of the carrots they give him? Either way he would make an amazing lesson or kids horse, if you can get him to move that is. Cascade has been sent to his trainer.
Palomino Paint Filly: This sorry little filly is "Lilly", the lowest ranking horse in the heard. She needs a lot of TLC before you can start her under saddle. We have been trying to get her weight up, but with the other horses pushing her so hard she can never eat. Because of this, she must be fed alone, or she will not approach the food. She also has strong trust issues that make it hard to catch her, and she fights with you every step of the way, Once she learns that she has a loving and trustworthy home she will calm down, however it takes time. Lillt has been sent to her trainer.
Blood Bat Gelding: "Scooter" is a very wonderful horse to work with, easy going and willing he would make the perfect horse for a beginner trainer. He can also change directions on a dime so cutting or reining look promising for him. The only thing to be weary of with this fine gelding is his love of stealing brushes. If you leave one where he can reach it he takes it, and adds it to his ever growing collection. Your only hope to get it back is to sneak in when he is turned out and take what is rightfully yours.
Bay Gelding: "Scooter" as I have begun calling him, he is another one of those fast horses, great for speed based sports. He is a joy to watch run around, throwing kicks and sparking the whole herd to run and play. I believe he is a colt at heart and I recommend a trainer that can help him understand he needs to be calm under saddle, but keep his spirit and let him be crazy in his off time.
