He is a 14 year old, untrained Mustang stallion. He was born in a
holding facility. He never ran free, but his mother was captured on an
HMA in Nevada.
Spirit is currently in Delaware. His current owners adopted
him, brought him home, took the halter and lead rope off, set him free
in a pasture, and just let him be a pretty pasture ornament for the last
decade. He is friendly and curious, but
untrained. His owners are moving, can't take him with them, and were
going to have him euthanized.
Thankfully Tracey McCartney-Snyder and Ellie Miller stepped up and are working to find him a
new home. He has a temporary foster home lined up and will be gelded
soon, but he needs a forever home soon. He is free to a good home under
contract. Potential adopters will be screened to make sure he ends up in
the best possible forever home.
I decided to paint this beautiful animal because lately on the East coast more and more we are running into situations like this where the mustang has been adopted, brought home and lived in comfort with the family sometimes for years like Spirit. However because he has never had any formal training or handling the animal grows up as a pet with no real job or training and because of his size and maturity he needs some one with experience to handle him.
