Help for Burro adopters! Crystal Ward Donkey Training
All the basics of gentling, handling, and training. A MUST for new burro adopters! Good for domestic donkeys, too!
Here is a picture of my mare, Glory Be, and her 6-hour-old foal, Freedom.
I bought Glory Be from the BLM in Burns, Oregon last November. She was gathered in Idaho last July, near Murphy. I believe this means she is from the Owyhee HMA.
She was sent to Burns to become part of a shipment of 50 over-ten year old horses purchased by a buyer in the Midwest. She was the only pinto in the entire facility, and being particularly fond of pintos I couldn't bear the idea of her being shipped to a questionable fate in the Midwest so I intervened and bought her.
Turns out I got two for the price of one! Freedom is two weeks old today, and I was finally able to handle Glory Be today for the first time since she gave birth.
I'd been told that she would probably revert and become wild and protective of her foal and she certainly did! Hell hath no fury like a mustang mare with a new foal!!!

Idaho has 6 wild horse herd areas:
Name of HMA
The adopter says, "This is a Hardtrigger mustang we adopted when she was 3 months old and now is five.
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. - Dennis Ferree Outback Adventures
PHOTOS OF IDAHO HMA HORSES:
Here are some photos I took at the Coeur d'Alene adoption this past weekend at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds (September 22, 2007). The group of horses offered was from both the Hardtrigger and Black Mountain herd areas. Most of them were shades of chestnut but there were a couple black horses. Not sure if that is a good representation of those areas but that's just what was available for adoption.
