Window shopping for Mustangs

I knew going into the BLM adoption event on Thursday that I wouldn't be bringing anyone home. But that doesn't mean I didn't look.

When I wasn't hovering around the burros, I was window shopping over at the gelding pen. I fell in love with every one of them. 
See that dun in the upper right corner with the messy black and flaxen mane? Turn around so everyone can see you, handsome.




He has the cutest little ears. Of course all horses' ears seem freakishly little to me now...



Your ears may be short but you sure can twirl them around when this camera makes a noise.


Don't be shy, Mr. 5324. Look over here. I'll make you famous.



There...now was that so hard?


Ok. You can stop staring now.
Cut it out. I mean it. 
I cannot have another horse...I cannot have another horse...

But if I could, it would be you.

  1. Carson, he is BEAUTIFUL!!!! We sometimes drive past the Ridgecrest corrals when we go to the Sierra and, believe me, it is hard to leave some of them there! Wow! He sure has a lot of color!

  4. What a gorgeous horse he is! I don't think I've ever seen coloring quite like his.

    I don't think I could have left him there. Did he get adopted?

    You're a strong woman, Carson...

  5. It's amazing how one face among the sea of horses spoke to you. There's must be something almost imperceptable that makes him different from the rest, and it looks like your subconscience picked up on it. I'm this way with cats. I always visit the adoption cats whenever I see them, and there is usually one that seems 'perfect'. Every few years, that perfect cat comes home with me ... and perfect is exactly what they are!

  9. He was stunning. Don and I were admiring him as well... and loved how his mane was already casually braided by someone.

    Oh he is beautiful!! Looks like he may have some Kiger mustang in him with that dorsal stripe. I love the black and flaxen mane. I don't know how you resisted. I would have been headed home for the trailer.

  17. I love that last picture, he reminds me of my Tonka. A mustang would be in heaven at your place, with all the time and love you give them. Where was your horse from? Did he go home with someone? Hard to imagination any of those colorful horses not being adopted.

  18. Oh boy, he is HANDSOME!
    Wonder how much The Shoppe charges for that frosting job on his mane...

  19. He's beautiful. Wish you could have taken him home with you and I'm sure he does too. They all look so sad and nervous to me.

  20. He is beautiful! I hope he found a wonderful home. (I think you should have bought him -- which is easy for me to say).

  28. Man-those EYES! How on earth did you have the willpower to leave without him?!?

    ReplyDelete
  29. That face is incredible. The eyes are textbook eyes of 'deep pools' - what do you see in those eyes? Wow! Hard to resist.
