Opie is a 2 yo BLM mustang gelding. He is 15.1 hands and is definitely still growing! He is approximately a January baby and will turn three in a few months.
Opie is a sorrel who was born at Ridgecrest Corrals. His mom was from the Twin Peaks HMA. We picked Opie up from the Ridgecrest Holding Facility on October 25, 2013. Opie is available on a first come first serve basis. His adopter must be approved by BLM. Opie is not broke to ride although with training she should make a very nice riding horse.... (read more) He is very easy going, laid back horse and is going to be big enough to carry a man and should be gentle enough for anybody to ride if he is started right!
Adopters must have no history of animal abuse and submit an application to the BLM. Opie is a gentled mustang and can be stabled in any standard horse corral that is 5' high or taller.

Local hauling available.
FamilyHorses.net specializes in offering to the public quality gentled mustangs for the low adoption fee of $125. We obtain the horses from the BLM and gentle them as part of the Mustang Heritage Foundation's Trainer Incentive Program (TIP). We strive to provide our customers with as much information as possible about the horse they are looking at by maintaining a blog on each horse with detailed information including photos and videos documenting the training process.
