It's hard for me to judge which one I like better without either getting a look at them live or having better pictures.

As for feed, mustangs are generally the "air fern" types that tend to stay fat on nothing more than grass or hay. I never fed either of mine any sort of grain or supplement and I had trouble keeping them from getting too fat LOL.

Smrobs - I have more pictures / descriptions on another thread:
Which one would you buy?

Let me know what you think.. and since you have mustangs, maybe you have heard of the foundation I might be getting one from?

Loved the one at my barn, but didn't feel a "click" with him and didn't want to spend that much time training him..(his $2000 price wasn't clicking with me either) but I would love to own one someday!!

Destiny - $2000 for an untrained mustang? Where are you located? That's a steep price, even for what I'm considering.

If you are still seriously considering a mustang someday - and you aren't in the New England area (as none are on the site I am about to recommend in this area) - then I would check out "Adopt a Living Legend" page on facebook. Daily updates of mustangs for adoption across the country. Some fully trained for under $1000! And super friendly and helpful community.

Wow this is a tough one for me now :), I am looking at purchasing my first two horses this year or next. ( barn is still being put up) and I was going back and forth between a Mustang or Quarter Horse ( doesn't need to be registered). And now all these pretty mustangs have me at a forked road again lol

I am in NE Ohio, the Youngstown area. His price was ridiculous, his owner also lied about how trained he was (which I knew to a degree) but I was also told about how trail safe he was (which yes, he was trail ridden but not extensively) and how he doesn't spook, buck or rear. On a trail ride with the owner's daughter (after I decided not to buy the horse) we cantered and she told me how excited she was he cantered without bucking. I was like well, glad I skipped that one.

A few general mustang questions as well -

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.

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

How do they do as pleasure/trail horses? I heard they are very surefooted, which is what I am looking for.
We own a mustang(he's my Avatar). We purchased him off of the woman who originally adopted him. His name is Vinni. To answer some of your questions...

Vinni gets fat off of water and sunshine-because he needs to eat he gets grass hay and gets grain only when he's getting his monthly dose of sandclear.

Vinni can sometimes be a booger about being caught however; he always gives up(in the same spot every time-???)

He's a fantastic trail horse but for some reason he's trippy...it's just how he is and will always be. His feet are rock solid-rarely/never crack and are slow growing.

Added info---he's got the best teeth out of any horse I've ever owned(yay for infrequent dental bills!).

He's VERY watchful. He keeps his pasture safe...chases anything that doesn't belong in it!

Overall, I'd say I would definitely purchase a mustang again.

Hope that helps!
