The above two photos are credited to Naylene Nield. Thanks Naylene, for sending these to me. The next five were taken by the BLM when Cuervo was first captured at the Delta, UT holding facility.

Some of you wanted it, now you've got it. :P A few of you had emailed me asking for more photos of my recently BLM adopted (4/25/09) Spanish Sulphur Mustang, Cuervo. He is three years old, and the other man in my life. He was captured in November of 08. From day one, we had a connection and became loving partners very quickly. He will have a forever home with me. I am so blessed to have found such a smart, loyal and protective horse. I have said many times, "I feel as if I found a brand new, untouched Ferrari for a quarter." Out of all the rare breed horses I have had, spending thousands and thousands of dollars for them, he is by far the cheapest ($125 adoption fee) AND my favorite. Who wouldof guessed. LOL. You can find quality in the wild mustang! Please, before you go out and buy another horse, PLEASE, at least consider adopting a wild mustang! There is nothing like the bond you can share with a horse, than that of gentling a wild spirit! It will change you! I promise!If you would like to see the progress we made on his very first day at his new home go to my website http://s1.webstarts.com/mustbmustangs/a_night_with_cuervo.html
also more photos of him at
Ok for all of you who think mustangs are rogues, stupid, cannot be trained, and can never be trusted... Get aload of this!!! This is Kadie June, she is my neice. Just turned ten and has been riding for about a year now. She had to unfortunately sell her horse when they moved to Decatur.
Anyhow, she had a need to be with horses, I had the need for someone to work with the horses (after shattering my ankle and breaking my leg), so we came up with a resolution for both of us.
Keep in mind that the mustangs had not had any handling for two weeks, since my accident. When she got here, she admitted she no longer had a saddle that fit, it went with her horse, nor did she have a helmet, but I could not tell that precious little girl no. So, I made her promise she would only walk Cass until we got her the proper equipment. Anyhow, it went great. They got along beautifully. Cass has been with us since sept. 08, and has only been going under saddle for a few months, hit and miss, with my crazy schedule. But she is a baby doll. Loves people, and ADORES kids. The next day, she worked with Cuervo, who has only let ME approach him, and she was able to pet and scratch him. Way to go Kadie June! If she continues to do a good job, and enjoys working with mustangs, I will help her get things ready to compete in next years Yearling Challenge. By looking at the photos, I believe she is enjoying herself. LOL

Cuervo is my main squeeze. He is a three year
old silver grulla, gelding from Sulphur Springs, Utah. I adopted him from the BLM back at the end of April, 2009. He was capured in November of 2007. The photo second from the top was taken on 7/14/09. I had saw him in a few photos listed
on the BLM website in the Delta, UT facility (top photo). Immediately, I knew that he was going to change my life forever. I contacted Lisa Reid at the facility, and made arrangements to get him shipped to me.
Since his arrival, I have he has become the absolute love of my life! I have found the horse for me! We have formed a bond that amazes me on a daily basis! Cuervo will have a forever home with me.
