 Madeleine LeClerc and Robert Carlson are headed to the Ft Collins Extreme Mustang Makeover this week end with Tango and Watson. Tango and Watson are headed to competition and ultimately new adopted homes.While waiting for the results of the competition this week I am offering the the introduction of The R&M Mustang Programs three new Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover horses.

Two weeks ago they picked up their three Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover Mustangs. There three are now trainging for  the September event in Fort Worth, Texas. All three are from Nevada HMAs.

Miles Fidelis

The Bad boy of the group is the jet black gelding, Miles Fidelis. From a HMA that is famous for it extremely wild horses. This is  one of the herds least desensitized to humans in the USA.  Miles was probably destined to be a band stallion and showed a lot of  Spirit and Fear. His reactions to first introductions were always violent  when first started. However Robert reports that from the beginning Miles, once he over came his fear was willing and intelligent. 

Penny Lane

The little Strawberry Roan mare is Madeleine's horse. Her unofficial name is Penny Lane or Penny for short. Penny's introduction to work was more average to what The R&M Mustang Program expects. She also is very willing and progressing nicely. She has a very sweet face. 

 Dessert First(Desi) is the name of the little dark chestnut.  Desi was one of the after the auction pool horses that was purchased after the auction. This little mare turned out to be a real surprise. She was very willing and surprisingly easy to handle from the beginning.  She is very gentle and watches everything the two trainers do when thy are handling the other horses.
