Ruby - BLM Wild Mustang Filly
Ruby from Twin Peaks, Our First BLM Mustang
We adopted Ruby, our first mustang, on October 22, 2000 at the BLM Satellite Adoption in Vallejo, CA. She was a bright, inquisitive-looking filly, who was so light on her feet, she nearly floated when she ran.
She "chose" us, in a way. We had planned on getting a buckskin or a pinto, and this little girl was plain brown. But she kept looking at us, almost haunting us. Every time we looked over in her direction, she was looking back at us! Michael reported that he woke up in the middle of the night after our visit on Friday, and he "saw" the little filly looking right at him. He went back Saturday morning and adopted her!
Before we loaded her up for home, we asked Lesley Neuman*, the on-site mentor, if she would work with her for a little while to show us how to get started.
* We were so impressed by Lesley's work that we made her a video for new adopters. Click here for more info about that.
