Wild Horses Available for Adoption

Tamed Horses For Adoption

Artemis roamed as a feral horse for many years. She was finally rounded up south of Gallup, New Mexico. She would make a good companion horse. She is probably about 15 years old. Link here

Cuddles is a six year old mare from the Jarita Mesa Herd which is managed by the USFS. She is a little spooky most of the time. Link here

Lefty is six and from the Jarita Mesa Herd. He was adopted for 3 years and returned when his adopter died. Link here

Wingnut a.k.a. Victor a.k.a. MichaelAngelo was born in 2011 in Nevada. He has a split ear that you will only discover by petting it. He is opinionated. Link here

Sahara is just a pony of 13.2 hands. We think she must have been trained at some time in her life because she seems to know stuff. She wears the same brand as Gobi. She is highly food motivated.Link here.

The former band stallion of the horses gathered by the NM Livestock Board from Cabezon, now a shy gelding. He doesn't seem to have ever been trained, but he is branded. Gobi would be happiest to be adopted with Sahara. Link here.

Kalahari is the daughter of Sahara and Gobi. A cream colored pinto buckskin! Just a yearling, but a bold baby. Loves to be scratched.Link here.

Trained Burros for Adoption

Chansey was the shy one of the herd. 12 hh She now loves people and comes to greet you and see if you have treats for her. Link here.

Ditto is a mixture of worry and bravado at this point in training. She is bossy with the other jennies. 11hh Link here.

Jerome runs to get petted when he sees us coming. He loves people and can only go to a home where people will spend time with this old fellow. Link here

When Pepper arrived at Mustang Camp, we thought she was probably pregnant. Now she is the mother of Radish, a beautiful and friendly little female foal. Link here

Sweet Pea is a bold little jenny! She was the first one to become tame. She is not too fond of the horse trailer, but otherwise, she is always quick to respond and always meets you at the gate. Recently she ripped a strip of her right ear and is requiring antibiotics. She lets us work on it with few objections. Link here

Aubergine is a strong young gelding with a beautiful almost purple color. Very muscular for a donkey! Link here

Spuds is still just a big shy guy. We'll let you know when he is ready to adopt. Link here

Tomatillo is learning to lead. She is about half way through the program. Link here

Denali is a 10 year old Gelding. Bay, studly, titled horse with cartilage filled right hock. Unsound for riding, but a lot of personality. Live and laugh with this guy. Link here

Animals adopted to homes in states other than New Mexico require a veterinary health inspection. The cost of this is generally around $50 per animal. We will take the animal to the vet, but this charge must be paid by the out-of-state adopter as a deposit on the delivery.
