Kona is a big, beautiful BLM Mustang gelding from Rock Creek, Nevada. Captured in November, 2016 he was entered into the
Trainer Incentive Program (TIP). He was adopted from the TIP trainer but sadly things did not work out. Shortly before he was to be returned to BLM we saw a post about him on Facebook and contacted the current owner. We agreed to take Kona in to the
- Dickens is a develish, trouble making little cutie.
Recently gelded, he is approximately 2 years old and is always trying to play “King” of the paddock. Even though his companionss are more than twice his size, he is always busy micro-managing their every move. We are confident he will grow out of this.
- Dickens is learning to walk on a lead and goes for evening strolls around the neighborhood with our resident Anatolian Shepard . We are training Dickens to be a trail-riding companion,
These two mares were at the Sunnyside Feedlot in WA. Halo (on the right) formerly tag #1100 is approximately 23 years old, and had been at the lot for several weeks. She was not gaining weight due to neglect of her dental care and she was unable to chew her food. No one would step up to take her home. Shilo had also been at the lot for a long time. Formerly Tag #1293, Shilo had several people express interest in her, but after two months of being on the feedlot, sadly it was just a bunch of people commenting on Facebook, with no one actually acting on their words. So here they are at AAM, and we adore these girls! Turns out Shilo is an 11 year old registered Quarter Horse. She had an injury on her left front foot, which is healing slowly but nicely. We believe she will be a nice non-competitive riding horse very soon. Halo the older mare is unstoppable!! After getting her teeth done and receiving endless hay and lots of warm mash with supplements, she is always ready to go! She’s been on several trail rides with us, and the younger horses can’t keep up with her. Whoever threw this Horse away…..well, let’s just say it’s their loss. And leave it at that.
Dallas is a big, beautiful incredibly intuitive Sheldon Mustang mare from ISPMB, South Dakota, known as the “Hallelujah Horses.” She is always “guarding” her herdmates, always watching. She’s easy on fences and very quiet. We have had zero problems caused by this mare.
We have only recently begun working with Dallas, and she is gaining trust and confidence daily. Dallas is approximately 15.2 H, and is estimated to be in her late teens. Having never been touched by a human prior to arriving at AAM, she is discovering the joy of touching, brushing and attention. She actually goes into the round pen on her own and waits for you to come and “play” with her. She is nervous still, and can overreact but she quickly catches herself and willingly returns to your side once she realizes she is not in danger.
She is constantly fighting her fear in her desire to bond with humans, which is common. Dallas is currently in the process of maneuvering through ground obstacles, flagging, tarps and getting used to saddles, stirrups, and plastic sheets on her body – all of which she handles remarkably well. She is also learning to hang out with all variety of farm animals, which terrified her at first, and now accepts and seems to enjoy. We adore this mare, and are honored to be involved in this part of her journey.
