Mustang A Day Challenge Painting # 299 Mo Palomino Butte HMA

4 by 6 inches Watercolor

Mo's Story as told by Beck Seible:

Moe is a BLM Mustang from Palomino Butte HMA, 14.3 hand Bay Gelding his number is 94009796 he was captured in '95 and adopted out then titled in '96... he is easy to catch even out in a big pasture, he ties, stands for trims, stand for clippers, loads in trailer, leads nice and light, ponys nice and light, started under saddle worked at the corrals for a year under Wendy, he packs, he is just a very sweet horse that has a lot to offer to the right person... but he is never going to be a race horse or show horse... I know his person is out there it's just trying to find them so they know where their horse is... he is here at Spirit Horse Ranch come get him he is waiting on you...

'Moe was 16 and titled when his owners decided he was of no use to them. Gentled, but never ridden, off to auction he went. A kind soul spotted his brand and picked him up. She notified the BLM, and one of the wranglers took him under her wing, started him under saddle, and for awhile used him at the corrals.

Green broke, but kind, I picked him up at the Kiger Kraze and I have been currently trying to find Moe a forever home where he can hang out, be a buddy, and maybe tote someone for a short little mosey around the pasture now and then. He appears to have a slight stifle issue which limits the amount of work he can do.' He could also be use as a pack animal for short trips in the mountains...

Note: The mark on  Mo's nose was caused by being tied by a halter  during his training. Beck was finally able to place Mo in early April 2012
