Fancy, 1 year old filly
Tracey at the Mustang Diaries wrote this post about the BLM's Internet Mustang Adoption program last week. Oh goodness, that was trouble! I spent over an hour on the BLM site browsing all of the available Mustangs for adoption.

I think Mustangs touch a little bit of all of our hearts and souls, in some way. Maybe you have no interest in ever owning one, whether adopted wild, or completely trained. Regardless, it's hard not to appreciate the pure wildness and the historical significance of the Mustang, isn't it? There is just something so....well, wild about them. As a youngster, I always had an appreciation for that wild spirit, yet a little desire to tame it, too.

I am not in a place in my life to adopt a Mustang right now. I don't have the time, finances, or the confidence to take on such a project. But I would love to, someday. It would be quite an experience. It would be a big decision to make. And a big commitment. Being that I love groundwork as much as riding, I think I would be patient enough to take the time gentling and working with a wild horse.

I wouldn't even care if the Mustang was very big. I'm fine with a horse around 14.1 hands. After all, I'm only 5'3".

The Mustangs and burro pictured in this post are all available for adoption. They do not have these names, I gave them names for the sake of identifying them in this blog post. Bidding is going on right now, live online, only for another 7 days! In case you are tempted. And if you haven't visited Tracey's site, please do. She is passionate about these horses and both she and her daughter do such inspiring work with them.
This one in particular called to me....his stout body, beautiful head, gorgeous color, "calm disposition." Three current bids.....the highest is at $190. If only...... wishes were horses. Sigh.
Stay a little wild, everyone!
