Once wild and free, the mustangs you will find in our classified ads have a heritage as old and diverse as our nation itself. Also known as American feral or BLM horses, the mustang is a tough, tenacious animal that has survived through its savvy and courage. The mustang got its "hoof hold" in the nation when the Spanish sent over an estimated 10,000 horses to be set free in the Rio Grande area in an attempt to prevent the Native Americans from stealing horses from their settlements. By 1900 over 2 million roamed free, but then ranchers delcared war on them, and by 1970 a mere 17,000 remained. If you're looking for horses for sale, consider one of the mustangs in our classified ads and be an owner of one of the symbols of the American West.
