We only found the gender because the So cal trainers were wanting to pair up for pick up. We do not know anything more then it is a mare and will be from Nevada ;D and supposedly plain colored.. :scoff: I don't recall seeing any plain about the horses in Texas last fall. ;D
Angi is both excited and nervous, because she likes strong minded mustang mares. I think it is safe to say if this mare is from Calico Mountian (Freedoms HMA), Black, or heaven help us.. BOTH! We are in big trouble mister! She was really hoping to be able to have this mustang go to someone else (preferably someone she knows or could get to know)
So if you are interested in adopting her horse PLEASE contact Angi
That is the most difficult part of the Makeover process.. you get this incredible wonderfully smart mustang for 100 days (or 89 in the case of the Western States Makeover)
You get it to trust you completely... To become your partner in an incredible event.. and then you have to watch it be auctioned off, with no idea who is bidding or winning the bidding because you are in the ring with your horse.
Last fall there were tears streaming down my face as I watched her lay her face on Freedoms neck at the close of the bidding because she didn't know that she had won the bid. She didn't know how much money people had offered to make sure she got to take him home.. as they entered the sales ring I was frantically calculating how high we could bid for her.
We were sobbing in the stands because even though it took her awhile to admit out loud that she didn't know how she could face coming home without him, we had already known it watching them together. The folks at the auction that sunday got to see the real Freedom, happy to just be playing with Angi.
I took Freedom to the NWHA Show in Oct. Angi couldn't go because she was sporting an unstable finger fracture. She could not have held a lead rope or trotted him in a class, and even the thought of a long truck drive hurt so she stayed home. Free did well except for the water bottle, that he was with me instead of Angi that probably caused that. He spent the 2 days in Vegas with his worry eyebrows on... something we didn't see when he was in Texas with Angi.
I found some pics from the show the other day and though I would share them. Free hasn't done much since Sept, Angi was injured 4 days after Freedom returned from texas, and she has just recently been released to work horses. She hopes to show Freedom at some local shows and take him to the Reno Wild Horse and Burro Expo in Aug along with a Makeover yearling (if she is chosen to participate)
Kali Mullins of the MHF was at the show. She was the one to give Angi Freedom in Reno last June. It is great to know that there are such a wonderful bunch of people working hard to show the world what we already know about Mustangs.
