By Kathryn Wilder July 19, 2016 The story I wanted to tell you was about my big mustang, Makanani (beautiful eyes). In the fall of 2011, BLM rounded up 1,132 horses from Wyoming’s Divide Basin Herd Management Area, permanently removing 993, of which my big bay colt was one. Adopted from Cañon City in 2014, Maka is now five years old, over 16 hands, and around 1300 pounds. His “training” consists of gentling and groundwork, by me.
Cassie - A story of a mustang (+playlist)~ A wild horse sanctuary in New Mexico, this is the story of Cassie, one of our wild horses adopted from a BLM, long-term holding pen in Oklahoma in February, 2010. Cassie is a Nevada mustang, rounded up in 2007 who had spent almost 3 years being moved from facility to facility in hopes of adoption.
