Gunner is the patriarch of a family of Kiger mustangs who we were asked to rescue from a now defunct horse rescue in Bend Oregon. Sadly the rescue was being closed down due to financial irregularities and over 70 horses needed new homes as soon as possible. There were a number of mustangs there and we chose to rescue four who were family and had been together for over twenty years as such. Gunner is 26 years old and such a wise and beautiful soul. He had been living with his family in less than an acre of mud and dirt and for him to walk on grass again in a natural environment was truly a dream come true for us to witness.
Gunner has an old halter injury on his face from where a halter grew into his nose when he was young but it just makes him look more distinguished and regal. He goes everywhere like a mirror with his son Optimus Prime.
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......
