Mustangs...Never boring

I want to introduce the newest member of my barn. Her name is May (as I adopted her in the lovely month of May). She is a branded BLM girl and is 6 years old. I am definitely learning about the Mustang horse and their unique bond of trust. She was very shy and wouldn't come near me all week, but FINALLY has come close enough to let me pet on her and start building some trust. She is fully broke and was ridden by children (though she was sold to me as "hot headed". Awesome kid horse, right??)

I believe she is sabino and I am loving the craziness of her markings. It is awesome what colors appear in horse breeds.

After initial touch, she has now gotten to where she will follow me and eventually walk up and lay her head on my hip asking for face pets. I think she's going to be really sweet!

Oh she is beautiful! You lucky lucky girl you!

Also, she looks sabino and splash to me.

I sat outside when I was taking these pictures for over two hours just watching the herd. I feel so very lucky to have them. They are so funny to watch. My gelding, Gulliver, has taken alpha role from my QH, Holly. He keeps all the girls in line.

I was wondering about the splash given her full blaze and stockings. She is deceivingly sweet. She will stand and scowl, but slowly makes her way up for some love.

She's actually an ickle girl. She's pony sized at about 13.3. But she's stout and if she IS good with kids and just needs adjustments, she will probably go to an intermediate to advanced child.

She is stunning! What unique coloring.

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/
