Maya was gathered by the New Mexico Livestock Board in SE New Mexico in 2018, together with her young foal. She is reported to have originally been from the Mescalero Apache reservation. This photo shows her body condition a week after Mustang Camp rescued her. Naturally, she is quite fond of the hay trough.
Maya sustained a bad cut above her right eye after she was here for a few weeks. She got very good about having her head handled during the recovery. The injury has fully healed, yet if you look very closely, it appears that this eye does not open as wide as the left eye. It does not seem to bother her.
Maya is friendly, smart and engaged, always ready for a training session. She is now starting Mustang Camp's saddle training program.
