I couldn't decide if the real story here was the mustang or the cat. Arroyo was born  after captivity. According to his owner at the time, Marietta, his mother was a Steens HMA mare and his farther was a Kiger.  The cat's name is Linus.

Marietta shared with me that Linus is a horse loving cat and love to bond with the mustangs they take in to train.  She said that Arroyo used to roll Linus around like a ball, while Linus purred and collected all kinds of junk in his long fur.  

Another interesting thing is that Linus liked to be held while Marietta rode. Arroyo and Linus had a very special relationship, however, Arroyo was sold before his cat friend, Linus,  had to opportunity to ride him. Since Marietta and her husband  are TIP Trainers and take in mustangs that are in crisis situations, Linus was never at a loss for a new mustang to befriend.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful story with us Marietta.
