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!! How those Mustangs are saved has come under fire, but it all boils down to saving the life of a Mustang or Burro. Once that life is saved, they either go to sanctuary or they need a loving person of their own to trust again & a place of their own to call home.
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, you are welcome to contact us and we'll talk about who may be your perfect match. These Mustangs are in Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado and Louisiana.
Dutchess is a special case - she has been with a trainer in Louisiana who has been working with her and she has developed some health issues that will make her placement a little more difficult. She is doing amazing now that she has been diagnosed w/metabolic issues and must be kept in a dry lot, No lush grass like we prefer. Dutchess will also need to be exercised regularly to help prevent her from foundering. She is a sweetheart and needs a family to call her own!
Located in OK where they are being fostered together until we can find an adopter that can take them as a pair. They are very bonded and Baby had a yearling colt (Casper) shortly after her rescue who is also available! These girls are definitely project horses! They were Sale Authority and we believe they wound up in the kill pen very shortly after they were purchased from the BLM because they have had no training. Their foster has worked on building trust but they haven't been pushed on groundwork yet. We are holding out hope for the perfect home to teach them their potential and let them continue to see that humans are not all bad!
UPDATE 12/23/19: CASPER HAS BEEN ADOPTED WITH HIS BUDDY, CONCHO!!.
Born in June, 2018 to rescued SA BLM Mustang, Baby Doll (above) Casper ia a Palomino Pinto w/blue eyes, He is currently with a trainer in OK along with two other colts available to adopt, Concho and Reagan.
These young mustangs were picked up at an auction in TX and have finished up their quarantine and ready for a new home where they can go any direction you want! A couple are shy, but others are very curious - each one is going to be an amazing companion for the right person!! For now we are calling them Uno, Dos, Tres, Cuatro and Cinco but they will get their forever names from their adopters!
A bonded pair of BLM burros currently at their foster home in OK. The boys have enjoyed their temporary home in foster, but would like to find a permanent home soon! These boys will not be separated for adoption.
Initially rescued as a gelding, "Marley" turned out to be a mare. A TIP trainer has volunteered to advance her training and brush out the dreadlocks, so Q's age may be determined.
6 year old Sale Authority Mustang mare located in central TX. This gorgeous girl takes a saddle and has her ground work down. Cayenne is ready to take the next step in her training to be a great riding companion!
3 year old Mustang gelding located in OK with a trainer where he is coming along very nicely! He was one of the 7 Spanish Angels we saved last December out of KS.
UPDATE 12/23/19: CONCHO HAS BEEN ADOPTED WITH HIS BUDDY, CASPER!
Yearling colt - he was a surprise baby after we rescued his mom. He will be gelded soon. He entered his 1st show in Sept. '19 and got 3rd place! Thank you Joyce for giving him such a great start and Shanti for continuing his education.
Frieda has been spending the last few months at a children's home in Abilene, TX and has been a great addition to the herd, but when they evaluated her for their riding program Frieda didn't take to the saddle and bucked. She is going to need a home that is able to just let her be a pasture pal due to a cyst that may have caused her pain when saddled. On the ground this big girl is amazing!!!
MR SNORTY is getting restarted from the ground up. We have spoken with the TIP trainer that originally this guy & found out what he responds well to and what he doesn't. Snorty is definitely a project and we will not rush him through his training so any potential adopters will need to be patient on his adoption process. Depending on how long it takes to find his person we may require that he stay at the trainer's another month or longer to make sure that he is ready.
UPDATE 12/23/19: ADOPTION PENDING.
LOKI is a 17 year old Mustang gelding shown riding at the KP and is currently with a trainer in OK where he is finishing out his QT and will be evaluated further. He is a nice thick boy and will make someone a great companion! Contact Evanescent, if you're interested in this beauty.
Sif is a 14 year old, 14.3-15 hand Mustang mare from Green Mountain HMA (Wyoming ) currently with a foster in Arkansas. Sif has great ground manners, very willing to please attitude and was ridden in her ad from the kill pen. The transporter said she trailered well, he was also a farrier & trimmed her hooves before bringing her to her foster she did well for that also. She didn't put up any fuss getting saddled, but she wasn't ready for a ride so we are going back to the basics and building more trust before asking more of her. Sif will make a great companion for her perfect match!
Beast is a sweet Mustang gelding at the low end of the pecking order - very willing and has had some training, but needs to continue to put on weight and settle in more before he is tested out by the foster. Located in South TX.
These two 15 year old mustang geldings are very bonded. Rounded up as yearlings, they have been together their entire lives. Johnny has had x-rays due to lameness and was diagnosed with ringbone in one foot, so he is looking to be a pasture pal only.
Cash may be able to train, but they are unlikely to be willing to go separate ways, so they may both need to be pasture ornaments for the right home. They will not be separated for adoption.
Currently located in Colorado with Johnny and Cash (who are available to be adopted together) - We were originally told she was pregnant from the kill pen she was saved from, but turns out she was just on the heavy side! She has pinto markings and a beautiful personality! She's a project ustang and ready for a family to start her at the beginning!
MARIKO is a 13 year old grulla pinto Mustang mare currently at our satellite sanctuary in OK. She is halter broke and possibly rides but we haven't finished her evaluation since she originally arrived at the sanctuary pregnant. Sadly, her filly only survived a few months. Mariko is ready to go into training or become someone's gorgeous pasture puff! She has a very sweet temperament and wants to please so her training should progress nicely once she has made the connection!
Akira is a blue roan pinto mare rescued the same time as Mariko. She is very gentle, willing to learn and looking for a person who will love her the rest of her life.
We have seen her go from being a baby sitter to being very aggressive with other horses (mares and geldings), but it hasn't been all the time. We believe there is a bit of a hormonal issue going on and it is possible the behaviors were brought on when she went into season. Beauty is currently in a big pasture with a herd of horses (most of them bigger than her) and bucking bulls, so she's been very well behaved since she was moved to her foster's place in CO.
Maggie and Reagan are available for adoption together or separate - Maggie has been lightly worked / ridden - she doesn't know much yet but has a lot of potential to be a great riding mustang! Reagan is going to be gelded soon, but for now he's just getting to be a colt. He hangs out with the older boys Casper and Concho and does great with them!
If you had seen Lady when she was skin and bones (see Latest News), you would NOT believe this is the same Mustang! Looking SO much better and was said to be a riding horse at one time. Lady is a 14 year old mustang mare from Fox Hog HMA in California, was gathered 08/2005, adopted 07/2008 titled 12/2009, rescued 06/19.
We love our adopters & would like to meet you and show you the Mustangs & Burros, so feel free to schedule a visit.
