The Mystique of the Mustang

When people hear the word “mustang”, they conjure up images of wild horses running freely throughout the prairies and mountains of the western United States. Indeed, these horses have enjoyed a few hundred years worth of being free from ownership… The true definition of mustang in the Spanish language! But what many people may not realize is that a more accurate descriptor for a mustang would be “feral” because these intelligent, robust horses are descended from domesticated breeds introduced to the Americas by the Spanish in the 1500’s.eye horse mustang

Given their diverse genetic lineage, modern mustangs can vary in size, shape, and color, although most stand about 14.2 hands tall. They are known for being a very sound animal physically, with no specific health concerns. In particular, they are known for having study hooves, making them equally capable for traversing mountainous terrain or just sauntering along your local trail.

The mustang has relatively simple nutritional requirements, a benefit of its years in the wild where it subsisted on what grass or brush it could. Therefore, a mustang is considered an easy keeper and doesn’t need a large amount of feed to maintain a healthy mustang riding

    My 18 year old Mustang got into the alfalfa a good to flakes or more she’s always been on grass I’m concerned about any problems

    • mm Dr. Kelsey J. Nonella Ph.D., P.A.S. says:


      The change in hay will cause some digestive upset, and she will probably develop diarrhea. However, it is a lot better than her getting into a lot of grain. Keep water and grass hay in front of her all the time for the next 24 hours. If she shows any signs of discomfort you should call your veterinarian. After 48 hours you should be in the clear. Good luck.
