    They are stand offish at first but once they trust you they are great. One thing I will note, a lot of people like to approach a horse fromt he front, I don't recommend doing that with a Mustang, they will paw you in the head. Until he trusts you always go to the shoulder and he will reach around to greet you if he is receptive to you. This goes for most unbroke horses, but especially Mustangs. They will not hesitate to paw or kick you.

    I've seen a lot of tamed, trained mustangs up for sale around here. All seem to say they are safe, steady and intelligent. Not sure if that is an accurate representation or just people trying to sell their horse!

    Lol! I hear ya, my mailman might show up anywhere from 10:00-3:00 and most the time they wont drop my packages at the door instead of trying to stuff them in my mailbox (they have ruined the bindings on several books) and my house is 100 ft. From the road...LOL!

    Understandable....just like any horse you just have to go try them out and see what fits you

    I'm sure I will have more later, but that's a start
    I have a lot I could say on this!!! BUT....As with any animal they will behave according to your behavior (ugly, dumb, and probably not pure bred)
    I own a SSH, TWH, 2QH, A "smutt" as you put it, and a MUSTANG (breed of horse that was here long before most of your "show horses")
    I would go with you are a person who totally pampers their horse for what kind of money they can make you (do you do with your children too?)
    I am aware that not every horse person treats their horse as part of their family. And that is fine
    I love the way my mustang is more independent than my other horses, it is only one of his most endearing qualities. I love the insight and years of knowledge I see when I look into his eyes. I also love the fact that when my children are around is the only time he wants the added attention that most domestic breeds of horses thrive on. He (Reno btw) is one of my best friends in the whole world!
    Now that I vented on your hatred for a great animal! There are some bad ones that will never amount to anything, but there again that is the same with any horse, animal, even persons. Maybe you just need to try and see them for what they are another breed of big beautiful amazing animal like any other!

    Ok sorry I missed that post. But I guess if its an "inside joke" it should have stayed inside or something should have been put in the same post. I feel how I feel and people can feel how they wanna feel. But they need to understand the same things can be said for any animal

    I'm writing my senior paper over BLM mustangs...the thing is, mustangs will not just "take care" of their population. They will breed and breed until there is no food. Classic boom-and-bust cycle...
    I live in Oklahoma, near one of the long-term holding facilities..The horses are out on thousands of acres of really great pasture, and are kept healthy until their dieing day.
    The wild mustang and burro program is not the ONLY thing the BLM deals with, they keep the mustangs at a level to where they can balance all the needs of the land.
    Just sayyyyin lol
    you do realize that if the conditions aren't right the mares won't go into estrus, right? Ergo in crappy years (less food availability, less water, etc.) less mares will be bred = less foals being born.

    Kayyy. Still though. Only takes 4 years for them to double their population. That's not enough of an arguement for them to not round them up. Other people need the land too.

    1. I NEVER said they should not be rounded up.
    2. I'd love to hear who you feel should get the land that the horses live on. Are you suggesting that the government sell off public lands to private owners who are then likely to push the horses out even more?

    I'm curious here...
