Martina and Valentine came to AAE from the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary in March 2018. Valentine was only days old. AAE has been supporting DreamCatcher's herd reduction efforts since April of 2017 after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke, in November of 2016.
Martina is a BLM branded mustang about nine years old. She appeared to have minimal human contact. Martina was thin and hungry with baby in tow, but she new where to go. She showed up at the barn with Valentine after not coming down for winter. Sadly, winter conditions at the sanctuary are fierce (for California anyway), and AAE got a call.
Martina was a great mom, but not interested in humans. She was given lots of time to be a mom and replenish her body. Initially, she was confident, and avoided humans like the plague. With intermittent rounds of human interaction, her curiosity and interest in humans is growing. We're hoping by spring she'll be ready for adoption to a mustang-experienced home.
Martina has recently returned from gaining skills at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center as a part of the Advanced Course for Horsemanship.
