Mustang A Day Challenge Painting #256 Happy Mustang Scout

Andrea Adler's Scout.

Baby Scout was a surprise package that  arrived after Andrea adopted his mother. Because he was born after adoption he doesn't have a BLM brand on his neck. Even though Scout doesn't sport the brand, he is a Mustang because both his parents were wild horses. Only those horses that are managed by the BLM are branded after capture before they are adopted. Generally, those babies that are born after capture  in a BLM facility are branded as well. Once they are adopted the BLM no longer manages them. His mothers adoption a few months before his birth meant that he doesn't have the brand, however, Scout still has the unique history as being a true Mustang.
