We love Mustang success stories here at EN. Trainability, intelligence, toughness, versatility, heart … they’re the total package, and if you can get your hands on a good one they’ll give you everything they’ve got. The next Hwin is out there, just waiting to be discovered!

Thinking about taking the plunge? The Bureau of Land Management is preparing to hold its October Internet Adoption/Sale, featuring Mustangs available from Honor Farm, WY; Mantle Ranch, WY; Burns, OR; Palomino Valley, NV; Fallon, NV; Florence, AZ; Delta, UT; and Ewing, IL. Optional Eastern pickups are Ewing, IL (by appt); Ocala, FL (Jan 26) and Lebanon, TN (Feb 16).

Check out a gallery of the available Mustangs here. I have a serious crush on this 6-year-old, 15-hand mare in Hines, OR. Her face is so pretty …
