I recently stumbled across a study trying to characterize what makes a successful mustang adoption. Needless to say, no one ever asked me!
I thought it was interesting that a study was done and that it only included those who adopted in New England. The results as to what makes a successful adoption of a wild mustang are inconclusive! No surprises there…anyone with a horse, much less a wild caught mustang would say that it depends on the day as to whether or not the partnership is successful. But the study does make for interesting reading. See Successful Wild Horse Adoptions Characterized by Casie Bazay posted on horse.com.
Even more fascinating was another link I found on The Horse to a video from the BLM discussing their long-term holding facilities. Not only do I want the job of the lady being interviewed but once you see the lush pastures, I think this is where Kobi though he’d be going when he was rounded up!
