These threads confuse me a little.
I consider Havok and Willow to be mustangs even though they weren't born wild.
I know a lot of people would just call them grade though.
Willow -her mom was BLM, but her dad is supposed to have been an arab.

Havok last July -his mom came from a free range herd owned by a private ranch.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Mustangs are recognized as either Kiger, which come from only some HMAs and there are now some ranches that are breeding them in captivity or BLM, which means that they were born to 2 mustang parents either on the range or in captivity.

Your first gray mare would be considered a half mustang.

Your little paint filly, on the other hand, would simply be considered grade. Horses that come from Quarter or Paint stock that run untouched on a ranch's personal land only qualify as unhandled grade horses. She's a cutie, but definitely not a mustang.

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/

here is my stang. She was born in captivity. But her mom was wild caught. The people who bought her mother got a 2 for 1 deal ;) I love my girl though


She is also gaited


And her regular trot

And assuming her lead mare duties

Thanks Smrobs -I love your saddle by the way

They are all so pretty! This reminds me of what my 5 year old brother said. We were about to move to Arizona and the boys had just gotten a rope. I asked him (Ashley) if I should buy a horse in AZ and he said "No I'll just catch you one with Ethan's rope! There are lots of horses in the desert!"

Lilkitty your mare has really pretty sunny side dapples. Just what I call them on a horse that's not grey or bay.

The first horse that I rode was a mustang I think.

And alot of you guys have tall mustangs that are tank built. All the ones I've seen are itty bitty.
