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!
