I love hearing about the origins of all our mustangs. It is especially fun to hear about horses that were adopted from the same herd (well, actually from the same management unit...each unit has several smaller herds). Sometimes they look remarkably alike and sometimes they look quite different. I'm requesting everyone to post their favorite conformation shot of their mustang (be sure to include age info and management herd!)
This is Catlow from South Steens. She is bright sorrel with flaxen mane and tail and big blaze face. The picture was taken last year when she was 3 yrs old. Todd makes her looks small, but she's not really that small.
I took this picture of Catlow this summer...while she is standing funny so it's not a good conformation shot, it really show off her blaze face. When I took this picture, all the horses were a little excited about the llamas across the road.
And here are a few of Chico from Beaty's Butte. He is a solid bay with no white. Pictures all taken the same day as Catlow's 3 yr old pic. Chico is 3 years old here also.
Chico doesn't always look this glamorous...generally he looks like a scruffy pony, but Catlow always looks pretty with her blonde mane.
