If your Stallion is in fact a "wild" mustang (or) one with otherwise bad attitude problem, you might be advised to sell him or otherwise get rid of him. Liability on a horse that is "trying to kill you" is very high. Liability insurance would probably be prohibitive in cost in this case. A few horses can have a bad attitude that is almost impossible to change....whether it be genetics or improper earlier handling, or other factors. My personal 2 cents worth is that whatever your "loss" in $$ value from this purchase to sell him to a sale barn or packer would very possibly be less of a loss if he managed to seriously injure or kill someone. With children around, you do not need an unmanagable or hostile horse on the premises. Hope my suggestions and comments help. :)

After one year they can do with them as they please. Most end up in sale barns or slaughter houses. But you don't have to have papers on him to sell him. oscar p.

>You dont say how old he is. Whom ever adopted him from BLM (bureau of land management) probably just used him as a pasture stud, and did nothing with him.Which is most likely why he is unmanageable. We have a mustang mare, she is now 9 yrs old. she was captured when she was 2, trained by a 15 yo, we bought her 4 years ago, and trained more by my young son. She is the BEST ranch horse weve got. But, with the stud, Id take him to the sale barn. Not worth your time or headache. If you just recently "got into" horses, you DO not need a stud. You need to keep them seperate from the mares when not breeding. Since being a newbie to horses, Id suggest older- well broke geldings or mares. Anything young, will be harder to handle,and be for a more experianced rider.

The best I can say is that you need to find a trainer to work with this horse. The first step is to geld him which will help his attitude 100%. But if you are already afraid of this horse and he is physically sound. There are people who are experienced with this type of horse. as I am, I have spent most of my life dealing with horses like this and would be interested in taking him off your hands. How much would you be willing to sell him for? As he stands right now, that is. Let me know and I may be able to help, even though I am in Northern Arkansas. Beth
