Yes, the cost of exporting one of these horses would be more than the cost of buying the horse itself. Not to mention that they would need to be at least halter and trailer trained before they could be transported safely and effectively.

I'm sure the BLM would let you buy a mustang if you were committed to it and emailed them personally.

True.
When we import horses from the continent (France, Germany, Spain etc..) We get a quote that decreases (per horse) the more horses we take. So, it would be more worth while to import 5 horses than just 1. Not all companies do this I know,but I was thinking say the more people who wanted one the more horses would shipped over.

It's pretty high price though :S A friend of a friend took her horses from England to the US then 6months later broke up with her fiance and brought them back to England, each horse being 5,000 each way, so 10k per horse o_o

I would love to adopt a mustang, though I admit I am peeved with the BLM for various reasons.

A friend has one who was taken off the range locally as a two y/o. He is 11 now and massive, I'd hazard 16.2, 16.3 hands, looks like there is some old-timey Morgan in him somewhere. Gorgeous animal.

As for this past auction...I would have scooped these up in a heartbeat:




$415 got him, after 9 bids.

And this stout little 12 year-old...13.3 and what a tank.


This mare has a lovely, solid build, beautiful face and quite a nice neck!:

Okay, I'm finished with being slightly off topic.

Oh boy...Sept 10/11 they're having an onsite adoption about 20 min from me.

I may go to see these beautiful creatures up close.

they are captured and auctioned out when they overpopulate in the wild

I think what they mean is, can a single person, non related to BLM or Kiger or whatever- Go out and capture a horse on their own.
