[RC] [Guest] mustangs - Ridecamp Guest

Kathy Ford -

This is just a little story that really shows the spirit of these
magnificent horses.

Denise, (hope I got your name right)

After reading you post I had to write you.  My neighbor has a 10 year old
mustang she's had for a few years now named Gypsy.  She is small yet very
hardy and very loving.  My neighbor also took her in as an older mustang.
The people who adopted her didn't know what to do with her and just let her
hang around.  My neighbor got her and she is also incredible.  She is loving
(I would usually get to be the one to take care of her when they were on
vacation!, and is quite the trail horse.  She gets along well with other
horses and really wasn't hard to train.  Her kids ride Gypsy now.  Gypsy
also just had a cute filly and she is a wonderful mother.  She was very
protective at first (except with her owner-the wife only could approach),
Later, she actually "invited her pasture mate to come in to stay with her
and her baby then gradually people she had come to trust.  My neighbor does
trail "clean-up" with her also. She is great.

I have another friend who adopted many mustangs and mustang curly crosses,
and they are very sweet.  Some she had worked with some not yet.  Infact,
she is looking for homes for some of them.

Well, take care.  I'm glad people like you adopt them!
