Introducing Shelby: The Mighty Wyoming Mustang

Shelby, a small yet powerful Wyoming Mustang, has embarked on a transformative journey at Mustang Valley Sanctuary. When she first arrived, it became apparent that not much had been done to train or handle her. She seemed content as a pasture pet but lacked the necessary guidance to develop her potential. However, Mustang Mary saw something special in her and set out to unlock Shelby's hidden talents.

Introducing Frey: the gentle heart of Mustang Valley

Frey is a fine young mustang with quite a story to tell, and it all begins in Nevada. We believe that he came from Shakira's herd. He may even be Shakira's father, and like Shakira, Frey found himself rounded up and taken to a kill pen. But fate had something else in store for him.

Meet Thor: a handsome Nevada Mountain Mustang

At five or six years old, Thor's still just a young'un with a full life ahead of him. While he might not be a riding horse, he'd make a great liberty horse. Liberty horses are trained to perform without being physically connected to the trainer or rider by a lead rope or reins.

Meet Hope: the resilient bay beauty at Mustang Valley Sanctuary

Hope’s journey to the Sanctuary was a long and difficult one. Like many of Mustang Valley Sanctuary’s herd, Hope was rescued from a kill pen, and she’s fearful of new people and experiences, which suggests that she may have been mistreated in the past.

Rosita came to the sanctuary as a two-year-old after being rounded up by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and ending up in the kill pen.

Shakira’s journey to love:

Shakira's story begins when she was still a foal. She was rounded up from her herd in the southwest and taken from her mother. A freeze brand on her coat marked her as a wild horse being cared for by a rancher paid by the Bureau of Land Management. However, instead of receiving proper care, Shakira ended up in a kill pen, facing an uncertain future.

Meet Moon Star:

Moon Star, a mare rescued by Mustang Valley Sanctuary, hails from the Triple B herd management area in Nevada, home to a population of over 1,500 mustangs. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) manages the herd and conducts periodic roundups to maintain population levels.

Mr. Quinn:

Mr. Quinn’s story is just one of many at Mustang Valley Sanctuary, where Mary and her team are dedicated to rescuing and gentling wild mustangs. The need for rescue and rehabilitation is ongoing, and your support can help save more mustangs like Mr. Quinn from the fate of a kill pen.
