OK, don't laugh. I know he's ugly! but what do you think anyway?

I know he's ugly but he is a mustang in every respect. These pix were of the third day that he had been caught out of the pasture. I caught him on the 16th at about 1:30 and by 5 pm I was riding him. On day 4, I took him through cattle. He is a sweetie and sooooooooo soft and responsive. I only got to ride him 6 times before I had to come back to amarillo and go to work but my dad has been using him and has him doing sliding stops and spins. :) By the way, he is a 6 year old mustang that had never been rode.

He is a BLM mustang. These are not very good pix, we were getting rained on (as you can see from the puddles) Thanks for saying he's pretty. I'll be going home this weekend and will try to get some better pix. Hope I can ride him, he is just getting over the strangles that he caught from a neighbor horse. :(

He looks like a very typie Mustang. Impossible to really tell about his conformation but I like what I can see. I think the look of his head being too large is just a matter of camera angle. Nice looking and seems to be very comfortable under saddle. How big is he?

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.

He is not very tall, I would guess maybe 14.3 but very stocky and drafty. Thick necked and wears a size 2 shoe. He is very sweet. Pretty poor conformation, big head and short back but he rides smooth and that's all that matters to me.

Pretty is what pretty does. My gelding is only 14.3, weighs just shy of 1,100 lb. And is super cowy. You need to post or two point his trot but he will carry you forever and when working a cow, don't get in his way. I've had better looking horses but not many as well trained. For me, as your mustang seems to be for you, he is just what I want. Enjoy him!

Unhappy

I will enjoy him until he gets too broke and I have to give him up to my step-mom. We had to retire her horse last year and still have not found another suitable mount for her. She is not much of a horseman. Loves to ride but not much experience.

I think he is handsome as well smrobs. I like a stocky horse that look like they could carry a baby grand piano up a mountainside.

If he is anything like my other mustang, he will be able to pull a grand piano up a hill. Everyone laughed at my 14.2 hand 900 pound horse until he drug a 1200 pound steer out of a pen at a feed-lot. That's my gray mustang I'm talking about.
