When we got Jet, we didn't really know anything about him other than he was very well trained. Someone noticed his brands and told us that he was a Mexican Mustang. This person had 4 of the same type of ranch horses - Cockroaches, they are called - and used them for gaming and trail riding. I always said I would have a whole herd of these really awesome horses.
We found Zip at a farm not too far away who, every once in a while, will have a Mexican Mustang for sale. Then came Rooster from the same farm. Each time a Mexican Mustang comes up for sale, we have gone to look. Last week, a flea bitten gray was listed so of course we had to check him out. He's bigger than most of the horses that we come across - just over 15 hands but stocky - and is as well broke as we had hoped. The timing worked out that Rosie found a new home and we were able to bring this new guy home. T named him Dash and he has a great personality.
