Adopt Me!

I was sent photos and information on these two youngsters yesterday from the Oregon BLM. Seems Taffy (above) and Biscuit (below) are two of the corral favorites. Both geldings are two years old and stand roughly 14 hands.

I wish she'd sent larger files! But alas, you'll just have to make do with the tiny little thumbnail of a photo on poor Taffy. Too bad, because I think you'd fall in love with that silver mane of his! I'm not positive, but I think he'd fall into one of the dilute categories, such as silver bay or silver dapple, once he's shed out.

Biscuit is adorable! There's just no other word for that face, do you think? He's going to make someone a very striking little horse. And look, he's got blond streaks in his mane and tail.


Both Biscuit and Taffy are available for adoption through the BLM Wild Horse Adoption Program. A mere $125 brings a Living Legend home with you. Hardy, sure footed, and cost efficient. And lets not forget CUTE! Just fill out the adoption application and mail it to the good folks in Burns, OR. You can then take a wonderful little road trip and pick these guys up (you're taking both, right?) Or better yet, if you're here in the northwet, you can hire me. I'd love to enable you!

And you, Tracey, are quite the enabler! Too bad I don't have room for another one at this point, lol. I want to find a larger, drafty type one someday though (that way my mom would feel comfortable riding-she always thinks she's too big) and I could get my miami gadget guy on a mustang too :)

Jeanette said...

LOL "enable", That's so funny. Aren't they lovely (ooops - aahhhem) handsome. Tracey, you have single handedly convinced me to consider the Mustang when it's time again for me to be a horse owner.
I sincerely hope that they find a home with your enabling (no, help), lol.

Awww, Tracey, they are both beautiful horses. I am really liking Biscuit, what a face! Love his coloring, wish I did have a place for more horses. But one horse and one donkey is all I can handle. Hope someone gives them a forever home!

My job is done...

They are so cute! Great colors. I really wish I had land and could afford another horse. I would love to have a Mustang someday. I hope Taff and Biscuit find a good home.

Oh they are wonderful - wish I could take one!!! Sarah

Tracey tell my mom to get me biscuit. :)

I so want a mustange...but I live just a little too far (kentucky) to take a trip out to pick one, two heck...three up! LOL Are either of these two broke to ride by any chance?

Tracey said...

Sure, Nikki, sure! I think you need him. You definitely deserve a treat!

Rachel, I'm sure we could arrange to put a few saddle hours onto both of these boys and Flick as well if it'd seal the deal and land three mustangs in Kentucky!

Wilmoth Farms Rachel & Her Farmer said...

But how would I get them here...and I'd have to have a safe ride for a beginner rider....

JackieB said...

Hard to tell from a tiny picture, but I suspect Taffy is liver chestnut with flaxen mane and tail. (No dark points, so he does not look bay in the picture.) Either way, he's a handsome color.

So Tracey what's your ball park estimate for a month of "enabling"? (I assume it'll take several months.) Will be a few years before I have a place where I can keep a horse, but I've started saving up.

Nikki said...

Tracey, I'm going to leave it up to you to let her know she's getting me a horse. Thanks so much!

Lea and her Mustangs said...

Tracey, tell my daughter I read that. LOL Really loud, is she going to keep him her back yard. I think there is a law about such.

Tracey said...

Now look at this, I've started a family argument, lol! Nikki and Lea, you'll simply have to work this one out on your own. Maybe move closer to one another so Nikki can come clean up the poopies?

Jackie, the enabling is free...it's the training that costs :) How far along do you want the horse when it comes to you? That's the big question.

Rachel, transportation, my dear...we can find a long distance horse carrier without any problem at all...lol...and yes, Enabler is my middle name.

JackieB said...

That is a big question. Pretty far along. I had horses and ponies for 12 years. Also several years of lessons (HUS and H/J). But that was more than 25 years ago. I've only ridden occasionally since, except one glorious summer on a friend's horse. All my personal horses were more broke than I was.

So I need a horse that is broke - w/t/c, trail safe, good ground manners, good whoa, back up, neck reins, not spooky. All the basics, but no advanced training.

I don't plan to show, other than medieval games (non-combat stuff, similar to working equitation and western games). Most of my saddle hours would be trail riding.

Thanks for any advice you can provide!

They are gorgeous but alas I am at my limit right now and can only save one horse at a time. Montero the TWH is my project right now but maybe some time in the future...
