So, this is a 3 year old Kiger mustang stud, who was rounded up in June 2011 and brought to the auction in Burns on Oct.6th. He together with over a hundred other horses were offered to the public. Kigers are historically more desirable than other wild horse herds and so my friend Eli had to bid on many horses to get her 11th choice. She had intended to get a yearling filly. The BLM does not castrate the Kiger horses on a regular basis, which I actually appreciate but leaves it to the adopter. The horse was shipped to ELM CREEK on Nov. 4th and we picked him up on Nov. 10. He is now at a friends facility in Wellington, where I also trained my mustangmakeover horse Coppersmith last June.
