Mustang Sally, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mustang Sally
Age: 22 years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Rangebred Mustang
Home: Marlborough, Connecticut, USA
   This is Wilde at Heart, also known as Mustang Sally. We didn't know too much about Sally when we bought her for our daughter in 2004. One of the first things we did was take a digital photo of her brand and send it to the Bureau of Land Management to see what we could learn about her. They told us she was captured in Nevada in 1988. No one else had registered this brand so much to my daughter's delight she is the official owner and got to name her "Wilde at Heart". Sally went to a lot of shows when we first got her and talked to all of the other horses like she knew them, maybe she did! As it turns out, Sally can do anything she is asked to do; it doesn't matter if you want to ride English, Western, bareback, trail ride or jump. We have no idea who trained her when she was first captured.

    My daughter is in graduate school out of state so what was our gift to her has become her gift to me. I visit Sally every day and get so much pleasure out of grooming her (after being in an office all day) and, yes, I am even riding her now. Sally is also a lesson horse, and is teaching five to ten year olds how to ride and doing intermediate work with older riders. When she's not giving lessons, Sally is out grazing with a miniature horse and her two donkey friends. We truly hope she is still "Wilde at Heart"!
