Intriguing horse

My mom is very involved in trying to save the Mustangs...not only did she adopt one, but she's created a whole new chapter of the Mustang & Wild Burro association (that might not be the exact name...) and she's volunteered at more events than you can shake a stick at, often setting up a horse that she picks out to be adopted at these events. It's her mission.

She always keeps an eye out on the Internet Adoption that the Bureau of Land Management does every few months. And she usually picks out a horse or two that she'll 'maybe adopt if no one else wants them.' But those horses are usually bid on, sometimes she ends up bringing them to an event and finding adopters.


Now I've started going through them too. It's sad to look at all the horses, and see ones not being adopted that might end up slaughtered or stuck in pens for years. It's also interesting to watch human behavior; all the pretty colored horses get bids. The roans, the pintos, the buckskins, bid on quickly. Bays, chestnuts, grays sit there unclaimed unless they're especially tall or well built.

But sadly, this guy despite his unique markings, has no takers. Dare I say it's because he's at the bottom of the page? in his first photo which shows in the gallery, you can't really tell what a unique looking horse he is. Sad that someone choosing the wrong photo for his up-front-and-center shot may well cost him a home. I hope someone bids on him soon...



EDIT:::

He has a bid! Yay!

Oh that's a cool marking. He's cute! The link didn't work for me though.

Yeah, I just uploaded the image myself into photobucket because it wasn't working. But I hope the Internet adoption links worked...

Neat isn't he?

Send him good energy ok?

he's adorable! and a 2 yr old @ 14.2? he might just end up a big guy. Too bad I'm not in the market. ::sigh::

Probably for the best that we're not in the US really. He's gorgeous...

He is a cutie. I always pick out my favorite.

I love this guy. I think he is just a fantastic looking mustang.

I had noticed that first one too. He's pretty...

Personally I don't like...cremellos? basically albino horses right? But he does have a good trot. Nice that he's got a bid on him and has found a home.

How's Fuego these days?
