Justice the mustang did not find the other side as easy, he got scared and ran through the pressure. Even when you set things up well they do not always go according to plan. But it is how you finish that matters.😉

Playing with the rope around, sliding the rope back and forth with Justice the mustang. Notice my two hands on both ends of the rope. If he had a problem I can let go of the end and bring the head to me. Justice followed a feel really great this direction.

Lots of desensitizing Justice the mustang with ropes around his body and legs. He gets more used to things the more time you spend. Just because he is good one moment does not mean he knows it and will be the next. Repetition is key😃

Justice the mustang does not like the feel of the rope around his body. Helping him to get used to it. When he reacts I am able to let go of the back rope and keep safe and start again 👍

We finally found a treat that Justice likes, pineapple plant, part of the chamomile family. So neat to have him eating out of his hands. Carolyn was careful not to get her hands to close.

Justice the mustang had not seen someone crouch down before as Carolyn got up he got a fright, he ran off a short distance, luckily the training they did together in the pen asking him to face was strong and he came back and they shared a moment of love and bonding. Don Jessop has been a great teacher and support throughout this whole process. Setting them up for success.

Justice the Mustang being lead out into a new pasture. Carolyn walks him around the perimeter and shows him his water trough. She lets him go. He wanders around for food. Now the test, can I catch you again, now you are in a bigger space. He passes the test. Yes to more freedom and grass to eat.

After Justice the Mustang got comfortable with coming into the stall and walking over the poll in his corral. He was asked for the next big step. Walk over the door post into the barn. He had a little trouble at first but was watching Carolyn and making sure everything was ok. He then started to get curious and he decided he could do it.

Carolyn out with Justice the Mustang, giving him some grass which he has not had any of since being in captivity. Notice how she is holding the lead rope fairly taunt to set them both up for a good chance of him not stepping over it.

Justice the Mustang on his second lead out. Not everything always goes to plan. Justice got a fright and ran away. Carolyn could not hold him, but he stopped and turned around and came back to her. Justice decided that Carolyn was safer and better to be with. Carolyn was ecstatic to get that response from Justice. Love the ending to that story.😉

Don Jessop is helping Justice the mustang to cope with the rope around his legs, should he step over the rope and give himself a fright. It is also good preparation for footwork and we really want to trim his feet.

These photo's tell a lot of the story.

We would like to get Justice the Mustang out of the pen and into the field, but we have to be sure he is ok to be caught in a larger space and caught with different energy. Lots of repetition, come in and go away.

The vet said Justice the Mustang is not contagious, it is a fungal infection from the mudhole that he had been living in. And cuts he acquired from the stressful trailer loading experience. His immune system went down. He is already on the mend and relaxing in his new home. Here is Carolyn giving him his daily betadine bath.

The vet came out and was surprised how good Justice the Mustang was at letting him approach and check out his skin infection. He didn't think we could get a hair sample, but Karrie was able to rub and pluck a few hairs at a time until they had enough. Waiting for results and in the meantime will be using betadine steroid solution.

Justice the Mustang started to break out with a skin infection. It was very itchy for him and spread quickly. Half of this was a blessing in disguise as he wanted to be itched and around humans, the other half was a little scary, what is it, why is it spreading so quickly, where did it come from...

Justice the Mustang made it home safely! He seemed to know life was only going to get better from here. He stood quietly and took in his surroundings, ate some hay. With soft encouragement, he got out of the trailer, not too quickly and ate some more hay. Our horses were very excited to meet a new herd mate.

Here is Justice at the facility moving towards the trailer. Although this is a beautiful photo of him, he was very scared while being pushed through the shoots towards and into the trailer.

Loading Justice the Mustang, did not go smoothly, Karrie was upset when she called me after watching the BLM’s attempts at loading Justice, the Mustang. It was not going well, Karrie was frustrated and heartbroken, the BLM had tried loading Justice half a dozen times. Justice was scared and his flight instinct was so heightened he was attempting to jump over the panels and was crashing head first into the fences in a blind panic. He could not find his way into the trailer. Finally, they listened to Karrie and Bill’s suggestion of repositioning the trailer and shoot to help him see more clearly where to go. At last, he was in the trailer and the relief was huge. On the way home they hit pelting rain and hail for a couple of hours, Karrie could only imagine how terrified Justice was in the trailer.

The decision was made, Justice the Mustang was chosen. Now just figuring out when to pick him up and bring him home.

 

There were a lot of Mustangs to look at. Trying to decide was difficult as the few that Carolyn Rae Maier liked had a roadblock, one was too small (13 hands), one had scars and bumps on his legs, one was going to another sale and not available. Don Jessop Mastery Horsemanship helped Carolyn Rae Maier to see the horse for its nature and try. Justice was closest to Carolyn Rae Maier in this picture and stopped first and turned to look first. A very sweet nature, with a lot of try. It was difficult to make a clear decision and the brand inspector and vet were waiting on Carolyn Rae Maier. Make a decision or we are going to leave. The pressure was too much and we advised waiting, as this is a big decision and you do need it to feel right and find the right horse for you. On the drive home, Carolyn Rae Maier got to drive the empty truck and trailer for the first time on the highway.
