They do. But, occasionally someone will adopt a BLM horse that is bred, but early on. And, sometimes people adopt young colts and don't get them gelded. Get one of those and a feral mare, and wah lah. It does seem like the BLM hangs on to horses longer than they did even 10 years ago, though, so I don't know what the chances of that are now.

I like the variety I see in the BLM horses. The curly's amuse me. TBs have been as popular for ranching in the north as QHs are. In some of the ferals you can really see their backgrounds.

I agree that she doesn't look like a typical mustang type. Generally speaking, though they don't have a set body style, they do have more substantial bone and hoof than she's got.

She could be some sort of cross and without a brand from the blm, you can't say for certain that she is a mustang, so I'd likely just call her a grade.

Either way, she's a cutie, congrats on getting her fixed up...even if you are still dealing with issues.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Hard to say, I have broke a few Mustangs that looked like cutting bred QHs. My mom had one (couldn't find a picture of her) she had a little baby doll head and a big hip. But I think she was one that was turned loose or close kin to one.

Mean and hateful? Wild and crazy? Nope, definitely NOT a Mustang. Since she is not branded, I would say chances are she isn't a Mustang, just a grade of some sort with an unfortunate upbringing.

Yes, I'm not sure I like the implication that because she was a difficult, sour horse... she must be at least part mustang.

I have a mustang mare that was rounded up as a 3 yr old, then didn't get consistent training until we got her as a 5 yr old. She went into saddle training two months ago -- the trainer has said that she is one of the easiest horses that she has started, as well as being one of the most honest and willing horses that she has met. The trainer calls her one of those horses who was "born broke", which is ironic because she was actually born wild.

Also, not all mustangs are BLM and not all are branded on the neck. My boy is off native land and has a shoulder and hip brand. He can be stubborn (just like any horse can be) but isn't mean and spiteful. Your horse probably just needs a bit of respect building work. Don't help keep the stereotype of the wild orney mustang alive. :-/ People give them enough hate as it is.....

Exactly, not all Mustangs are branded, there are other ways to get one other than through the BLM. Breeding them, like boots had mentioned and the rez, etc...

Does she have a freeze brand on the right side of her neck. If so, could you post a pic of it, and I can read it to see where she came from.
