Learn about the history of these beautiful, majestic creatures
It was later that these horses received the Spanish name “Mostrenco” which means “Ownerless”. This term later became know as “Mustang”
Special Thanks to my Mentor/Trainer, Ed Dominguez, without whose knowledge, guidance, patience and friendship, this organization would have never been possible;
Above are some of the pictures from our event with the local 4H club called Hooves and Heartbeats. It was a great time for everyone and from the feedback we received, the club found it very educational which is exactly what we had hoped. They got to interact with wild mustangs and burros (of course they are now gentle), learn about the horses and burros characteristics, habits and such plus see and learn what type of tack we use and finally assisted in helping muck all the stalls.
Funny Farm Mustangs was asked to participate in a BLM Open House event at the BLM Headquarters in Las Vegas NV, which we gladly accepted. As we do with our school events, Funny Farm Mustangs provided one gentled mustang (Jigsy) and one gentled burro (Madam) plus the panels to make a temporary corral. The purpose was to educate employees, their families and friends on wild horses and wild burros, their characteristics and how incredibly gentle, intelligent and majestic they really are, It was an overwhelming success with several children getting to participate in a question and answer session then getting to "meet' Jigsy and Madam. An excellent event!
Here are some pics from our last elementary school event before the Summer break. The name of the school is JT McWilliams Elementary School and the staff is phenomenal and we had a great time. The kids were very respectful and inquisitive and asked good questions. They received a history lesson from Krystal then got to interact with Jigsy and Madam. Before they went back into the classroom, they all received a little gift bag with some BLM Wild horse and burro items, like pens, pencils, wristbands, work books, etc. Another successful educational event!
