Mustangs

Every horse is a cross of breeds...that is how they became to be purebred in the first place lol.The Quarter Horse is the perfect example of that. They are basically a horse that came out of Mustangs that were horses from the spanish conquistadors. Mustangs are amazing. They can excel at anything that they put their minds to. Very versitile. Adopting them doesnt cost much. It just takes time and effort on your part to remain commited and have the proper fencing and shelter. Good luck on finding one! You would ceartaintly be owning a piece of history.

If you wan to barrel race a mustang, there is really no reason why you couldn't do it. I'm saying that assuming that you have the experience to train a green horse, or that you have a good trainer who can take thru it.

I am not interested in getting one but I would be curious to hear where you can get actually get mustangs for purchase.

Curly - Wow I had no idea that is where Quarter Horses came from!

But thank you! I just needed another opinion since most of the people I know are snobbish and look down on mustangs and would tell me to buy another breed.

Geldings- There is actually this program out of the BLM where they herd wild mustangs (the way they do it I don't agree with though, they herd them by helicopters) and offer them for adoption through in person and online adoptions. Minimum bid is 125 and usually they don't go too high.

Why did you decide to look into Mustangs if you don't mind me asking?

I play sports as well as ride, and when people first look at me, I don't look like the typical person who will excel in sports. I'm 5'1 and 120lb but any sport that I have tried I have done just as good as the boys. I have played ice hockey for over 7 years and even though im small and go up against boys usually over 5'8 and much heavier than me I play the sport just as good as them and have turned out to be the fastest skater on my team.
I hate it when people look at someone or something and just because they don't match the "right" body type don't give them a chance.

I want to stand up for the Mustangs and show everyone who looks down on them that they can do anything just as good as the other horses. They just need a chance.

I see a lot of myself in the Mustangs.

haha, off topic, anyway....
We just got cheese and chocolate, none of that healthy shiz and my boyfriend and I split the bill (he wasn't going to let me until I threatened to order hot oil and dump it on him ) I think I paid 20 dollars but I tipped big. It was our monthly splurge

stop!!! Please you're making me hungry!!! I went to the melting pot 4 years ago and had the 3 course meal. It was my bff's b-day so her parents took us there. Then I moved and couldn't find one in alabama then my husband was critically injured in iraq we didn't have time for dinning out. And now we live in Nevada and have just found one and when we get a chance we'll go there. I've been telling him how good the food is. Sorry to talk your ears off I love the melting pot.
