Someone else wants Wildairo's homeboy.

Today I watched this wonderful documentary on line about the wild horses in Montana. I was fascinated to watch the wild horses interact with each other. The aggressive way the stallions fight is incredible. Here's the address to copy and paste if you haven't already seen it.

I wonder why it took me so long to discover these wonderful horses? I had no idea there were so many herds of wild horses in the Western States. I had the impression for some reason that Mustangs had very course features and were pretty much hard to train once captured. I must have been living under a rock for all these years! The point I'm making is if I have this impression there must be many others with similar impressions. When my neighbor was walking over to meet Wildairo for the first time he was saying something about Mustangs being muley or something. Once he saw Wildairo he was very impressed. My neighbor is a genuine cowboy cattleman and has a horse inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame, so he's been around a bit.

Wildairo's homie, whom I'm bidding on has an admirer in Montana who's trying to out bid me. Darn it! I want to see these horses getting bids but not the one I want. lol. We'll see what happens. I've been so excited about him coming to live with us that it really didn't occur to me someone else would get him.

Ugh I don't understand why people try to outbid you. I think some of them just like to rasie the prices. It is just irritating. If you see one that has a bid, look at a different horse. They have sooooo many on that website to choose from anyway. Then if everyone went for a horse that did not have a bid on them they might ALL get adopted.

Good luck getting this guy. I'm rootin' for you!

Also, with not knowing about mustangs- I was the same way. My enlightenment came at the auction where I got Sundance where I fell in love with a BLM mare that sold for more than I could afford. I didn't even know that there were wild herds and that you could adopt a wild horse. Then I came across Shoni's photo and fell in love with her and Tabasco after I met them. Now I'm hooked too!

For some reason I can't access the BLM site anymore, so you have to keep us updated on what happens with the bidding. I hope you can still get him!
