Prison Trained Mustangs Part Two…






Last week I told you all about my adventures at the Prison Trained Mustang Auction in Reno, Nevada.

If you’d like to read that post, click here.

While there, I took some really pathetic photos because I didn’t have access into the prisoners’ arena – for obvious reasons.

However, through the grapevine, I was given photos of the prison trained mustangs as they competed during the obstacle course.  There was an amateur photographer who was able to get up close and personal on the course.  That photog happened to also own a prison trained mustang, so he was able to get in closer.

Sadly, the only horse he didn’t photograph was ALL BUSINESS, my personal favorite.  I really, really liked him.  Oh well…

So without further ado, here are the ‘insider’ photos from the August 20th Prison Trained Mustang Adoption!

REMEMBER, THESE HORSES WERE WILD JUST 4 MONTHS PREVIOUS!

 

These are all the inmates getting organized before the competition. I love how CHUBS (on the far right is looking straight at camera!)

 

OK, here's a wild horse wearing a stuffed animal on his head...

 

Notice the mess of plastic bottles by his feet... This is Lahontan who was the youngest at only 3.

 

All those people in the background are saying, "How can I get MY horse to do that?!"

 

This Mustang was from a previous Prison Trained Auction

 

CHUBS was such an incredible horse!

 

Curly Bill was the one who was really, really mellow... He sold for $500 and will be an incredible kids horse!

 

Frito Bandito was the high point horse all around.

 

I loved Yosemite Sam. He was so kind. Here he is making googley eyes at the fillies...

 

War Paint sold the highest. He had 4 colors on him... black, brown, tan and white. Gorgeous boy.

 

This cutie pie is DJ. He was the smallest. I bid on him but didn't win...

 

A new relationship begins...

 

Could DJ be any cuter? I should have raised my paddle higher.

 

Love it!

 

This is Jill Starr who is Lifesavers Mustang Rescue. She helped save 32 weanlings this month off of the Fallon lot. Anyway, she has 3 prison trained mustangs!

 

I could not get any of my horses to wear this! Well, maybe Violet Beauregard but that's all...

 

A sweet story...

 

With a happy ending...
