Finished my history paper on wild mustangs too! Did you know that the Native Americans didn't have horses until the Spanish Conquistadors came to America? Oh what a wonderful research paper it turned out to be! I can't wait to share it with you next week after it gets reviewed by the Mustang Heritage Foundation.
Carly called me this week too! She is so sweet! I told her all about what I'd done this past weekend at the ranch and she is just the sweetest girl in the world! Speaking of my weekend, one of my dad's clients brought two mustangs back to our place so I tried to make them feel right at home. And if anybody is interested in giving either of these sweet horses a new home just let me know!

I don't know if you guys remember Bucephalus, he's my four year old wild mustang I adopted last year from the Bureau of Land Management. He's doing absolutely spectacular with me now; picking up the correct lead and stopping the second I breath words to stop. He's really grown attached to me more than any of my horses ever have. Whenever I go out to the field, I cluck to him and he comes trotting up to me. That... and we did a lunging routine and when I moved his hind-quarters away from me and ran backwards he ran straight to me! It was so cool seeing my red-roan, all his attention on me, waiting for me to tell him what to do next. He is a magnificent horse and always tries his best to please me.
Every horse has it's pro's and con's, Pilgrim was very lazy, but it only took him once to learn a new thing so the next time I tried doing that trick, it was a piece of cake. Every horse has a good side and a not-so good side to them. I wonder what my next yearling will be like?
