This website is owned and created
by Nancy Kerson, a private
citizen - I am not the BLM or anyother branch of  government!

Information about BLM adoptions
is offered as a service, to help
mustangs find homes and to
promote public appreciation of
wild horses and burros.

For information about the BLM
Wild Horse & Burro Program,
please call (866) 4MUSTANGS
or Click HERE

Please direct adoption questions
to the BLM, not to me.

And I sure as heck am not a
Mustang car dealership!

I have NO horses or burros for
sale and am not interested in
buying or listing or otherwise
promoting your sale animals!

We rope and barrel race, game, mountain ride. She is an extraordinary animal! We just adopted five more from Saylor Creek."

Destino from Sands Basin in the Ohyhee Mtns of Idaho

Here's my Sands Basin 2 yr old gelding.  He was the last yearling colt left after the adoptions. He is solid chestnut color.  I plan to show him in Dressage and have my kids ride him as a Hunter Jumper.  He should come in at 15.2h.

He is the smartest horse I've ever worked, and my best friend. The other day I set up a jump shute.  He jumped the 4 foot guide instead of the small jump - because it looked like more fun???  He also loves to watch other horses work.  He wants to do the work. I like his type.  I think it is the true mustang look.  Long stride huge up hill build solid bone and great feet.  He floats at all 4 gaits!

I want to do more to help people train young mustangs.
warm Regards,
Annie McKillop

* Due to their proximity to one another, these HMA's are being managed as a single Complex.

These are a few photos I took while leading small groups of friends to see the Wild Horses near Jump Creek the last three weeks. We backed off when we saw the new foal. I love the beauty of the Owyhees.
