A Mustang named Quecho is available for adoption at Best Friends Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah...



Breed: Mustang
Primary Breed: Mustang
Age: Senior
Color: Chestnut/Sorrel
Sex: Male

Quecho is a lovely older gentleman who is retired from a long career as a Forest Service horse. They were loath to give him up because he was everyone's favorite, but rules are rules and they are required to retire them after a certain age. He is in his mid-twenties and is a bit creaky, but is still an 'easy keeper' and gets around pretty well and is on no meds. He is very handsome! We were told that he is half mustang and half Belgian draft, so he's kind of a bigger guy. He has good horse skills and is easy to handle. He'd make a great companion for horses and humans alike. We no longer consider him 'rideable,' but he's looking a retirement home with someone who'd give him lots of cookies and lots of love.
