#9543 - 1 yr old brown filly, captured Oct 2011 from Green Mountain HMA, Wyoming.

TRAINING UPDATE: This horse is a cute brown filly. She has one of the more refined heads that I have seen on a mustang. She is really looking for security and someone to be a friend. She is shorter boned than the other horses, and has good conformation. I believe she will be very athletic, and is taking to the halter well. She is eating grain and these pictures are of her very first hour in training. Once she realizes no one is going to hurt her she drops her guard and relies on the trainer for comfort. I believe this will make someone a great companion.

This horse is in training at the Mantle Ranch. For more information, email Steve Mantle at: or call 307-322-5799 evenings.

Video of some of the Internet horses can be viewed at:

This is your opportunity to own an amazing piece of living US History.  Personally I think he is a very cute boy and doesn't even begin to look his age.He has a lot of potential for the person wanting to take on a gentling and training project for the summer.

If you are interested and have never adopted I suggest two things: 1) read the requirements and then 2) locate a Tip Trainer near you to guide your through the process and the training.

Tip Trainers can be found through  the Mustang Heritage Foundation:
Requirements and available horses can be found on line at the BLM On-line Adoptions site.
