Dun Mustang Mare

Rescued Mustang mare. She was supposedly purchased last year after the gal I bought her from drove past this mare tied to a pole year after year and being used as a brood mare.
The lady didn't know what to do with her or how to train her, got on once and was thrown off so she came to me. Shes been a great little mare to work with and so pretty. Thought I'd throw her up to see what the general public thinks of her (Don't bother commenting on her belly, we know its there, you'd have one too if you stood tied and popped foals out yearly) Anything else is fair game, shes been under saddle for about six weeks now and as you can see shes progressing with excellence.

I think she's gorgeous!!!! She does have a little bit of a belly, but it's not huge or anything. Very pretty coloring and pretty face! For being tied to a pole year after year, she's pretty nicely built considering. Good luck with her!

Nice looking mare. Could use a little work on her top line and her belly - love her face. I don't see a tattoo, how do you know her to be a mustang?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

She looks pretty nice considering her past. But I second above post, where's the tattoo?

I would guess by her color and small conformational differences that she is likely a Kiger mustang. I don't believe those are branded.

She is a gorgeous girl. The only thing that I can see is that her back appears to be a little bit too long but it doesn't look like it bothers her. Love that rich color too.

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/

she's VERY pretty i am loving her color, i too have a non Branded mustang! her mother was wild caught and brought in and bought and i can't remember if she was pregnant when they got her, or if they bred her, so my girl is at least half mustang = ) and i agree your girl does seem to have pretty decent conformation.

Either her back is a little long, or her legs are a little short, but neither one seems to bother her or cause her any discomfort, so I'd say she's fine. I've always admired duns, and your girl is such a beautiful, rich color! Also, She has a bit of a belly, but it's not as bad as it could be. :)

Her coloring is stunning! She has a bit more of a belly than I would want on my horse but she is gorgeous! Congrats!

She seems a little front end heavy, or maybe its just the way she's standing.. Cute mare tho. :)

Gypsy gold does not chink and glitter. It gleams in the sun and neighs in the dark.

It's so nice that this mare came to you after all of that abuse. She seems like a cute little mare, and looks so happy and well cared for. Good luck!
