Wow, I'm surprised at how well he's built for a mustang. I personally was going to say he looks like a QH bred with older working lines- he's definitely too solid in the legs to be modernly bred. He's beautiful! Was he bred by people or did he come straight from a herd?

you should go out and actually take a look at the BLM mustangs. if they weren't well bred conformationally and mentally, they never would have survived on the range. ;) excellent animals!

He had to have been range bred, he's in the prison training program they only take range horses from the BLM

Point taken. I am not a mustang person myself, and most of the mustangs I have seen are not conformationally what I would consider pretty.. I am not saying that there are not beautiful mustangs out there, I just haven't seen any in person yet! I definitely don't doubt their mental prowess, they would have to be to live in the wild. Don't blame me for my mustang ignorance, they are not very big on the east coast.
On a trivia note- does anyone know why Mustangs tend to be smaller than domesticated horses?
hint- it has nothing to do with breeding.
no cheating! =p

no worries - i know most people haven't had the pleasure of dealing with the BLM mustangs. ;)

and i'd guess that some herds (horse size - not actual herd #s) are smaller because they survive longer/better with a smaller build to sustain when they don't have as much forage to live off of. (if that made sense haha)

The original Spanish horses were small never above 15H, but the BLM horses are not usually small some reach up to 16H they cab usually grow taller in captivity with proper nutrition
