Mighty Mouse the Mustang ~ the Before & After…

Posted by Texas Mustang Project on July 20, 2011

I found this picture of Mouse while cleaning up my hard drive this morning. I knew he had changed over the past year, but I had completely forgotten just how poor he really was at the adoption. Looking at him now, I almost wouldn’t believe he was the same horse if I didn’t know better. He truly proves the old adage… “Never judge a book by its cover!”

The Story of Mighty Mouse, Part 2

Posted by Texas Mustang Project on June 2, 2011

It has been a year since Mighty Mouse came to live with us. There were hard times. There were easy times. But they were always the best times because they with Mouse. Our whole family instantly became enamored with this little spit-fire of a horse. From the moment my mother-in-law saw him at the adoption, she loved him. When he got home, the rest of the family quickly followed suit. My father-in-law, “Pa”, was a horseman of sorts in his younger days but has not been around them in a few decades. It took all of about 2.5 seconds for Mouse and Pa to become fast friends. Even when Mouse was mad at everyone else for whatever reason or another, Pa could walk out in the pasture straight up to him with no problems. Talking with Sandra awhile back, I realized in our conversation just how much Mouse meant to me. I’ve had horses all of my life, literally. From the time I was 11 months old, my Grammaw would mount me behind the harness knobs of her plow horse to plow the fields. She used to make me laugh when she’d tell me about it; said she had to wait until I could sit up on my own before she could get the fields done “properly”. I’ve had all kinds of horses, from the old plow horse to the best-bred barrel and cutting horses. But never before have I had a horse that was so kind, so gentle, and yet such a spunky one! Mouse is unlike any horse I have ever owned or even been around. He has the kindest eyes I’ve ever seen. He actually listens when I talk to him. (Seriously, we have full length conversations!) LOL we even watch our soaps together in the barn! (One Life to Live & All My Children are his favorites :D) I know some of this sounds silly, but the relationship shared between me and Mouse is one of extraordinary uniqueness. And neither of us would have it any other way. He is most definitely an Ambassador for the American Wild Mustang. So, without further adieu… 

Ladies & Gentlemen, we are proud to present…

Mighty Mouse, EATING, Again... LOL (Jan 2011)

On this afternoon, we had been up in the front pasture doing some training exercises. Mighty Mouse decided to show India and I just how “mighty” he was… He decided that he was done with the training for the day and left us both standing there looking around like, ok, what just happened? When we caught up with him two pastures away in our back pasture, he was just as you see him… Eating, as usual LOL! Needless to say, we didn’t go back to the training that day. We all three just chilled and relaxed in the back til dark. It was actually a really great afternoon and evening. I guess Mouse knew better than I did what we all needed 🙂
