Mustangs adopted from BLM Oregon in 2015. Colt, left, born at ranch. Mom (right) and filly (center) appeared in the wild horse loading video at this post. Mom was pregnant when captured. Filmed 08/02/18.
Gentling technique: Patience. No strings, no ropes, no confined spaces, no ‘respect my space,’ no ‘show that horse who’s boss.’
As for the colt, no imprinting and no weaning. Hands off for the first three months to let mom teach baby how to be a horse.
