|Sancho's Scar from being bitten by a|
Mountain Lion. The scars while not pretty do
not affect his gates, nor his ability
to be a good riding and work horse.
Despite all this he is a gentle giant; at 15.2hh, he is one of the taller horses to go through the program. He was the first mustang I ever rode, I climbed up on him bareback on only his second ride and he safely carted me around the round pen.
|Where the Mountain Lion clawed Sancho.|
As far as we have gathered, he has two freeze brands because he was first state owned and then federally owned.

Gerry is currently looking for a permanent base of operation on a ranch or facility in Texas or out west."
Gerry added a little more to the story for us on Facebook; in his words: "We had an expert look at his scars and he determined that the scars were roughly 3 years old. He looked at the scars 2 years ago, so Sancho would have been 2 when he was attacked. He receieved NO treatment for his wounds because he was still living in the wild when attacked. He is so unique that everyone remembered when he was gathered."
