 Product Description

Mustangs embody the spirit of the American West. Toro is a blanket buckskin appaloosa-style mustang. The compact, hardy horses known for their stocky build, strong bones are hooves are well-suited for roaming the open range. Though the herds of wild horses are collectively called mustangs, a term from the Spanish word mesteno or monstenco they are not technically a breed. Instead, mustangs are a mixture of many different breeds that have comingled over the past 5 centuries. Andalusians, Barbs and Arabians brought to North America by Spanish settlers in the 17th century provided the foundation for the modern day Mustang. As time passed, Mustangs also bred with a variety of other breeds giving them wide range of coloring, conformation and size. Unlike breed registries, Mustangs are identified by the region their herd lives in rather than genetics. Kiger mustangs are from the Kiger range in Oregon and the Sulphur Springs, Utah to name just a few. During the mid-1600's, the entire Mustang population was estimated at between two and four million horses. As land has been converted from open into ranch lands, housing developments or businesses, it has become difficult for the wild horses to survive. It's estimated that only 50,000 wild horses remain.
