One of the reasons my BO loves them for her trail rides that go for 100's of miles is for the reason that they are very resiliant to feeding conditions. She explained that out on the trail you can't always predict what you will be feeding all the time and said that her mustang would adapt to whatever it was given without worrying about a colic episode. She tried to do some of these rides with her recent QH and he just couldn't hold his weight. She bought a kiger mustang last week for these rides now.

So here are the 3 I am considering....

Vinnie1.jpg

This is Vinnie - he is a very drafty, tall mustang (probably 15hh+-ish), super sweet. Hard to catch at times, but gentle and easy to work with.

Dillon1.jpg
This is Dillon - A love bug. Super friendly and comes when called. Always hanging around the fence to see you. He is also super drafty and probably 15h+ as well. The guy in the picture is 6'7" and makes Dillon look small. Not saddle trained.

This is Dood - a Buckskin Appaloosa. He is saddle trained and 15h. Easy keeper and adorable.

Thoughts??

I think all three are beautiful, especially with their being drafty. Tough decision, maybe choose the one you just 'click' with?

If they are ridden a few times a week (trail riding only), do they need to be put on a grain diet as well? Right now, all these are only on grass and hay.

My girl is to easy a keeper and is only allowed grass hay and treats when ridden no gain or she packs on the pounds ( she is just a pleaseure horse )

Are all hard to catch? I know two of the three can be difficult to catch, and one seems to be the exception.

Mine is not hard to catch at all she runs up to us most of the time and when she doesnt she just stands and waits for us to come get her and she is in a mini pasture.

How do they do as pleasure/trail horses? I heard they are very surefooted, which is what I am looking for.
I do alot of trails I can't say she is the most surefooted horse I have had she is kinda clumsy but she also is a little lazy

I love her though and she is the best most well behaved horse I have had. As much as you can trust a horse I trust her and she is just all around fun to ride with a great fun playful attitude.

Yeah! Such a hard decision. I haven't met Dood yet, but I have have met Vinnie and Dillon and loved both of them. Neither are saddle trained, however, and I am nervous about starting them!

My husband likes the look of Dillon the best, too... I loved spending some time with him (the horse) on Saturday. I will meet Dood in a few weeks and hopefully be able to make a decision!

I have a BLM Mustang and will never go back to a domestic horse. He's a handful but so smart and so willing to try anything. We just "click" :)

He's 11 yrs old, a 17.2 hand grulla
