Aha thank you :) It took me 40 minutes to do her mane like that lol.
And they are from the Theodore Roosevelt National park. They are of spanish blood, and a lot of people believe they are the descendants of chief Sitting Bull's herd. They were nearly gone until the Kuntz brothers bought I believe over 200 of them from the park, and they have based their lives on preserving these horses, and have got people to join in with them. They are super smart, hardy animals that are just as versatile as a quarter horse. In fact, some ranchers used to use these horses and others of spanish descent for ranch work, and from what I know these ranches helped form the early quarter horses
