    Those lanky legs are actually a big part of why we chose this particular wild child from among the bunch. Most of the horses from Aurelio's herd average the mid 14 hand range; in our ideal world, we like a horse that's about 15.0-15.2 hh. Most of the yearling colts were about 13 hands, but among the ones we liked best Aurelio appeared to be the most "leggy"... so he's the guy we went for.

    So far so good. When he was rounded up, he was estimated to be around 13.1 hh. Now as a 2 yr old, he's roughly 14.1 hh -- I think the odds are fair that he'll make it to 15.0 hh at least. Even if he is a smidge under, I'll be perfectly and blissfully happy with him, of this I am certain.

    There's more to the story of how we chose him, but I'm trying to keep it brief so you don't wind up reading an essay.

    Just for fun, I thought I'd toss in the picture we had of him in the catalog when we adopted him.

    This is all that we had to go on. I guess you could say he was quite the impulsive gamble... but it's all paid off better than could have ever been hoped for so far. ^_^

    Each of my daughters trained two a piece. We got them as three time losers (BLM has a fancier term for that program). They were all about 7 years old, gelded, and made nice kids horses.

    They weren't big enough for ranch work, and being that we bought them outright, the kids were able to sell them and use the money for school clothes and extracurricular events. All went to homes with kids who told us they were fine.

    They didn't seem any different than any other range bred 3 or 4 year olds that we've had. Just decent little horses.

    B'DAW I love them all. I knew a trainer that is a TIP trainer and has trained horses in the Extreme Mustang Makeover. She's fantastic. Her main horse is a big beautiful black gelding that she can do just about anything on. She has others too that I've drooled over.

    I owned one mustang. I didn't adopt her from the BLM, I bought her from a couple that had "rescued" her in Ohio... she somehow managed to go from the Bakersfield, CA auction to Ohio, then ended up in KY. She taught me a lot. She taught me to believe in the horse and be confident. She scared me a few times on the ground before I rode her, but I felt she was ready and got on and she was fantastic. Someone else initially started her but it had been a while before I bought her... her previous owners never rode her. She needed some work but once I gained her trust she caught onto things very, very quickly. She was terrified of the saddle. I ended up selling her back to her original owners because she was too small for me and I wanted a larger horse. They were ecstatic to get her back. I sometimes wish I hadn't but everything happens for a reason. I just got this photo from the owners the other day. She is doin just fine :) I may not have her, but I have her memory and all the wonderful lessons she taught me.
