Rojo was a mustang who went through the prison program in Carson city. His owner adopted him and rode him for a while but sadly then contracted Lyme disease and couldn’t ride as she recovered. Rojo was left to be a horse and reverted quickly back to being a very wild one. By the time his adopter was well enough Rojo had very strong opinions about being ridden or handled again. This so often happens with adopters for many different reasons. Often with prison trained horses or mustang makeovers these horses get three months of intensive training and are shown by their handlers. Sadly if the adopter doesn’t have enough knowledge or experience to be consistent from the day they get them it is possible that they can revert to being more wild, or test their owner. Luckily for Rojo he came to Skydog and now gets his wish which is to live wild and free forever.
Rojo runs with Buddy’s herd and is very low key and low maintenance. He is a handsome boy who gets on with everyone in the herd.
These are just a few of the Mustangs we have brought to the ranch, there are so many more that need a safe environment to live in.
Check back soon and meet other rescued horses and please donate to help us save more mustangs. Over 150,000 American horses are shipped to Mexico and Canada every year and killed in the most inhumane and brutal painful way imaginable - stop the slaughter by lobbying your congressmen to Pass The SAFE ACT......
