My favorite internet game: BLM adoption photos!

I am not really one for window shopping horses online. I can count on one hand the number of times I've browsed Dreamhorse. I occasionally look at listings for Lippitt Morgans and just shake my head. I don't even really look at flyer at the local farm stores.

I do make one giant exception: the BLM Wild Horse & Burro Online Adoption galleries.

Mustangs, you guys. Even though I stumbled into them, apparently they have a giant hold on my heart.

So here's my favorite game: who would you take home?

Here's the online gallery to browse through. Comment with the number of and/or link to your picks!

Right now, I'm loving #5641




And I am head over heels for #5696.

    1. 1559 is super cute! Most of the ones I sorta liked were mares, but I would never take a mare home, so 1559 is the only gelding that caught my eye!

    2. Yeah I am sooooooo not a mare person either, so for the purposes of this exercise I am pretending the ones I chose are geldings. :)

  3. Um...0888, 2422, 3466... I've got a thing for the grays and the blacks that are super stout and look like they'd take up the leg well. 4089 has a flashy trot. 3979 is gorgeous. ...All. I want them all.

  5. They're such compact little things. I wonder if they jump well with those short backs.

    1. Some do, some most definitely don't. Often in these auctions you see a lot of examples of one particular type, because they've been gathered from a specific region that trends that way. Last year there was a gather & auction from Tristan's area and they were all taller, longer-legged, and longer-backed. Tristan is if anything a bit too long-backed.

    1. She almost looks like she got some draft in her, something about the way her neck is tied in says Percheron to me.
