I love that they don’t need us, but that some of them are willing to work with us and be our friends. I’m so grateful to the mustangs for being so generous and forgiving. Ginger Kathryns, the award winning documentary filmmaker who has immortalized Cloud and the wild mustangs of the Prior Mountains says that some stallions and mares are meant to stay wild, while others can make the transition to living with us. She can tell in the early days of training and does her best to set the untamable ones free again. That’s something to think about if you are wondering about adopting a mustang.
Although, if you have a horse or have spent any time with them you know that they can’t ever really be tamed. Even ‘domesticated’ horses are still tuned in to every little touch, sound and smell. They remain instinctual- -especially if we can listen to them and give them a life that makes them happy. And as long as we don’t break their spirits, they very much have their opinions and their own special way of communicating how they feel!
In Christa’s Luck, both Lucky and Jenner have opinions on a lot of things and have a fierce independent streak. They both also have a sense of humor.
In Christa’s Luck, both Lucky and Jenner have opinions on a lot of things and have a fierce independent streak. And they both have a sense of humor. At least Christa thinks so. She knows her horses inside and out. She also thinks she knows a lot about wild horses, but when she meets the lead mare of The Lost Herd everything she thought she knew changes in an instant.
