While there are very few non-profit Mustang rescues willing to rescue from kill pens, all Mustang rescue groups have one thing in common. We ALL love Mustangs!! Evanescent has Mustangs and Burros available for adoption to loving homes in order to make room for saving more that find themselves at-risk. The below list is updated regularly as Mustangs & Burros complete QT & evaluation, so please keep checking back.

If your heart is open to showing an icon of the American West love and having him or her become your companion for the rest of their life, here are the steps Evanescent follows:
1. Fill out our adoption application
2. An Evanescent volunteer will check references and also speak to you about which Mustang/Burro may be your perfect match.
3. If an in-person home check is not an option, the adopter will be asked to send video or photos of where the Mustang is going to live.
Coco is a beautiful 13.2 h, 2012 Divide Basin HMA mare; captured in September, 2017 and adopted at a BLM adoption event in 2019. In April of 2020, she was at her second home still ungentled, but has come a LONG way since then.
Coco completed the 10 mile intro ride on Saturday at the Jingle Bell Trot endurance ride. She did great! Still not trusting people and not confident enough in general. But she camped well, overnight Friday, and did well with others horses on the trail.
She has been under saddle 6 weeks and will need a confident and considerate rider. Coco is doing well in a Little S hackamore, she ate and drank well on the trail and at camp. Totally calm in an electric tape corral. She even laid down for awhile the night we camped. A permanent home is wanted and adoption requests will require an adoption request be filled out.
Sundance is a 4 yr old Range Creek HMA gelding. A Sale Authority Mustang now located in Colorado. He is a small guy - measured at just over 13 h by BLM, but may grow as he is still young. He has already started being gentled and his personality is coming out! Located in CO.
Butch (sorrel w/white blaze) is a 6 yr old Sulphur HMA gelding. He was measured at just 13.1, but looks to have grown a little and was relocated to Colorado in May, 2021 with his buddy Sundance and is already enjoying interaction with his foster dad. (buddy, Sundance, is always nearby) We are hoping these boys will be adopted together.
CLARISSA is a Y2k Mustang from Maverick Medicine HMA in NV. She is halter trained and sound. She is a bit aloof when it comes to people. She prefers to be with other mature Mustangs and could make a great companion horse for another Mustang in their teens or twenties. She has a very distinctive seahorse for a blaze. Clarissa is located in CO
Dancer is a 2011 Sale Authority Divide Basin HMA mare just 13.3 h tall. She was severely abused before coming to Evanescent in Dec., 2019, and is not interested in any way of being haltered. Her foster dad is working on convincing her everyone isn't bad (see right). She now lives in CO
Deets was pulled from a kill pen as "Elliot". We are putting that experience behind him and giving him a name that suits his personality. He moved to Colorado and is in line to be gentled. Deets is 3 yrs old and was born in holding to a Bible Springs HMA mare at Axtel, UT holding facility..
Bacardi, a White Mountain HMA gelding, arrived at our foster in Jan., 2021, and is said to have been a ranch horse. He's stocky, 15 h, halter broke and gentle, but snorty of people. Bacardi is going to be getting more training soon!

Kira-Nina is a beautiful sabino mustang mare that is very willing and sweet however she needs to be a companion only mustang due to limitations preventing her from riding.
Beauty came in with some behavioral issues towards other horses but that has stopped with this placement. She is older but may have been ridden prior to her rescue.
Shelby (see above)

These two are fairly new at our OK foster home. Momma had her baby who is weaned now at 7 mos. old and lightly halter broke, Momma is halter broke but hard to catch, we think she’s broke to ride, I have tacked her, but not mounted yet! Both are very nice! Located in OK.
Dose was born in '17, but no HMA info is available. She is 15-15.2h, very sporty, halter broke, but still unsure of people, She lunges, loads and is willing to learn, but needs to find HER person! Located in OK.
Dakota is a special young gelding that came in with 4 other mustangs about a year ago and he has needed longer to decompress. He has been allowed to just hang out and is currently considered a project mustang. If we can find the right home for him we know he will thrive and his foster will start working on his training if the adopter prefers him to be further along before taking home!! Located in Chandler OK
Whisper's eye has healed well and she is only partially blind at certain distances. She is approx. 5 yrs. old, has been handled some, but we will not call her gentled or halter/lead broke. She's been on pasture turn out recently and is doing amazing! Whisper would do well with a home where she has a pasture mate to help with showing her the way around. Located in OK.
