OP, I liked your first three picks. Great conformation on those ones IMO. The others you picked, eh not so much.

Mustangs make fantastic little horses. From my experience with my own, they can be stubborn ("I KNOW I'm right and YOU are wrong!"), but once you have their trust, they would do ANYTHING for you. I adore them, great horses, and super healthy/low maintenance too.

Someday, we will be able to afford a second horse. As much as I would like to get an OTTB, I think the best thing would be to get a BLM mustang for DH and help him train it. There is nothing like starting and training your own horse. The bond is so much deeper and you learn so much.

This is my captive bred mustang. Out of a BLM mare from private owner, sire unknown but I highly suspect that the sire was a Tennessee Walking Horse.

That's so true! My lil Asher would do anything for me, but was like "uhhh no!" for anyone who didn't work with him for a while.

@LoriF and @SwissMiss - we seem to have the same tastes in horseflesh!

I've never heard of a 5-6 ft long trailer for a horse.

Wow! @SwissMiss - your little grulla filly's price tag is already over $1000!! The buckskin, chestnut and my grey gelding are all over $300. My pretty little black filly has only had 8 bids and is currently at $150.

My 4 y/o bay doesn't even have a bid in. And he's a nicely sized and built horse. Guess people are afraid to tackle an adult. I'd take him for the $125 adoption fee! Good thing I don't have the proper facilities.

Seems like some people are high bidding based on color. The black and the bay are just 'plain Jane.'

It'll be interesting to see what the final bid on that filly is! We'll know in 11 hours.

@LoriF - I didn't see your choices earlier. I adore that 3 y/o dun. He's solid, of decent height, and just the right age for starting!

@Change , wow! People do bid higher on color...
I have to admit I am a sucker for color too I really wanted a chestnut with some chrome when I was horse shopping. And now what is standing in the pasture???

If I had my own property to support one or two of these guys right now, I would get one. Hmm, one day.
