    I have a beautiful 10 yr. old mustang with a sweet disposition, alittle ground work has been done with her but not in a long while, does not bite and has never kicked yet. but not broke either. she was a rescue from going to a slaughter house, i do have all paper work/title on her. she is a very easy keeper. very stout and has a gorgeous face. shes about 15 or 16 hands, but she is very spooked. so heres the deal... if you can catch her and load her without any harm to you or exspecially her then she's yours... she does lead once you catch her she also ties, she requires alot of love in which i have for her but i am in a fiancual bind and can not afford to keep her any longer, i'm in a bankruptcy and about to lose everything... so plz. if anyone has a heart to give her a good home come get her... thank you.

    I am posting just in case someone might be interested...

    Nice stout horse, unfortunately ... too bad the owner couldn't train her and give her a better future than a truck ride to the slaughterhouse, again.

    Could probably get her into a trailer with a few panels. She just looks sweet and I feel bad for her. I worked with 2 mustangs, one went on to be a nice little trail horse and the other ended up doing some low level eventing with a teen. Both were super sweet and good minded once they got used to be handled. If I were closer I might give catching her a try. Hope someone gets her before meatman, she is nice and fat after all.

    She could very likely end up on a dinner plate right there in Florida. Horses are still getting slaughtered illegally for meat there.

    Ya, I noticed she was a fatty also.

    I really hope she goes to someone that could help her. If anyone is interested I could come and help load her

    The horse trippers will get her first, then she's meat. At least she was well fed for a while.

    She has a freeze brand. Doesn't BLM do this? If she is a BLM adoptee, is selling/transferring her against adoption agreement?

    I know that if they find out you don't have the shelter/pen/etc as listed required in the agreement they will come with a truck & take horse back.

    Anyone know? and if so, who to contact?

    BLM only has interest for a specific amount of time (first 2 years?), then they're yours.

    She's cute - if she were close (and I had room) I'd go get her . My best ever horse was a little Mustang. I hope the woman is selective about who goes to get her because it doesn't look good at all .

    I think it is a year, but it's been years since I looked into it.

    You get the legal title after one year and then you have the right to sell them. I used to have a BLM horse that I pulled off a kill truck and I had to get his title after that one year period.

    Sounds like the mare needs a capable person. I hope she lands on her feet.
