    Exactly. Mustangs aren't first horse, horses. It's asking for trouble.

    They also have a prission program that trains blm mustangs, to they pair prisssoners with mustangs and teach them how to train them....i agree with solon and m2g if you are a first time horse owner I DO NOT recomend a wild mustang

    Yes, we were amazed at how many were just roaming around. It was part of why we decided on our land purchase. The people we bought our land from have some really cool pictures of several wild mustang! You can view a bunch of pictures on their website coloradolandsale.com. One of the photos they had was a wild donkey! I would have love to have seen him when we were out there because he is huge! We are heading back out in a couple of weeks to have a pad graded on our property so we can pull our camper out for a few weeks at a time. I will get some more pictures and post for you to see!

    Beautiful picture!
    I have adopted a total of four Mustangs from the BLM. The first time, I got a four year old mare and her two month old filly. I paid $500.00 for the pair, that was about 15 years ago. The mare was taken to a trainer and broke to ride, we kept her for about three years. The baby is now a beautiful stallion. He is halter broke but we never rode him. Then about three years ago we went to another adoption to look around and ended up coming home with a weanling colt for $125.00 and a gorgeous bay mare for $25.00. Your enclosure has to meet certain requirements and the horse isn't officially yours until you've had it for a year and then have a vet come out and verify it is healthy. But yes, a wild Mustang can truly be tamed.

    Wow, that is really positive news! Was this in Colorado or another state? Also where our land is there are other wild mustangs that graze there. If we were to adopt through the BLM program would I have trouble with my mustangs wanting to get out or would the other mustangs bother mine? I am not sure, I would kind of feel bad that I am not letting them roam! I would love to hear your thoughts!

    In your case, I think you would have to take extra precautions to keep your Mustang from escaping. Being used to living in the wild, they may be even more likely to try and escape if they found a local herd to join. This could be more of an issue if your Mustang was the only horse on your property (no companions). Although the few we adopted down here have bonded pretty well with humans, they definitely like being around other horses. I guess this is true of all breeds.

    Of course, the wild ones may sit around drinking beers and laughing at your captive. :)
