Stories of wild Mustangs and their adventures in the American Wild West have fascinated people all of the world for many years. Their wild spirit and exciting adventures have a way of capturing anyone’s imagination. The American Mustang is a breed unlike any other, and with a history unlike any other they’re sure to capture your imagination.
First brought to the Americas by Spanish Conquistadors, the American Mustang is a breed that was once domesticated but has gone feral from generations of living in the wild. These horses often have Spanish and Iberian looks to them giving the indication that the roots of the breed are still going strong. The American Mustang herds number somewhere around 30,000 in the wild with thousands more that have been captured during an annual round up and adopted out. Many Mustangs find owners through the Bureau of Land Management’s annual round up and adoption drives. This is done to prevent overpopulation of the breed so that the wild mustangs can live freely on the land.
Mustangs can range the spectrum of color, from fancy Grullos and Duns to Bays, Grays and Blacks. Pintos and Appaloosas are all known in the wild Mustang herds, it truly is a spectacle to say the least! Mustangs are a hardy breed with good hooves and a stocky body. These characteristics make them great horses for those who have the chance to adopt one!
