Katori came to us as a 9year old Three fingers mustang in 2015. She was rounded up and branded due to a fire in her region. She is not a good fit for domestication and will live our her days here with her bestie Gian. This girl is amazing and we love her desire to remain wild.
Jolie is a rescue from the kill pen. She came to me in 2013. We rescued her with the help of neighbors because I was still on Long Island and did not have room for another horse. She has turned out to be such an amazing partner and my favorite horse to ride. We will be together forever. PS that is me, Mary, on her back in 2021. So who rescued who???
This branded BLM mustang out of Nevada was rescued from the kill pen August 2021. She was lame with a deep abscess and could not put weight on her back foot. There was no hope for her and the vet said she would loose the hoof. We still have a long way to go but she is load bearing now. The abscess blew out both heel bulbs and now her frog and sole are coming off. There is a healthy underdeveloped sole underneath that we need to protect. I soak it and wrap it daily to keep it cushioned and clean. She is so sweet and kind and gentle and loves to be brushed. We have hope for Hope
Jackson is a chocolate palomino pony rescued from the kill pen in 2014 at 4 years old. He has a notch in his right ear that means he was culled from the breeders herd and sold to the auction house. They thought he wasn't perfect. He is the most amazing little boy and we think he is perfect.
Mikayla is a 5 year old branded mustang out of New Mexico. She was pregnant and in the kill pen. We were blessed with this beautiful girl in November 2020. She gave us little Elena in 2021. The two finally joined the herd in August 2021. She is an excellent mom and baby Elena rules the herd
Kara is a 12 year old unhandled BLM branded mustang out of Nevada. She came to us from the Killpen in November of 2020. She is stunning and really wants to trust. We are working with her but feel that she is not fit for domestication. We will continue to work with her as she allows. What a site to see this girl glide accross the hay field. Her feet barely touch the ground.
Flora is a local rescue. She was abandoned and we took her in the fall of 2019. Her feet were terribly infected and curled up and around. She is blind in her left eye from Trauma incduced cataracts. She is approximately 10 years old. She has won the heart of so many people that visit the sanctuary. This girl just wants to be loved. She is usually found nestled between Cedar and Sabrina. Cedar protects her and makes sure she clears the gate when they come in. It is so sweet how they take care of each other.
This is Cedar and Sabrina they are bonded and are always together. They are both in their late 20s. Horses bond like humans do and we at Mustang Valley Sanctuary cherish their feelings and attachments to each other.
Mr Quinn is a 12 year old branded BLM mustang that came to MVS November 2020. His previous human was going to euthanize him because she said he was dangerous. He is an amazingly sweet boy that needed to learn to join up. We have worked together and I have fallen madly in love with this boy .
This is one amazing branded mustang from the kill pen. She came to us as a yearling in the fall of 2020. She is loosing her baby teeth and is growing into such a beautiful girl. We can do anything with this girl. She is also very fierce and will protect little Rosita if anyone tries to bully her. Shakira is one of a kind.
