The Mustang has been alive and free for many, many years. He has shaped our country. If the Mustang did not exist we might not be here, we might have a different country, for we could be slaves, or we could not have the animals we love – horses. If you really think about it the Mustang got many people to come to America, the Mustang shaped our Quarter Horse history, the Mustang fought in the war for our independence, the Mustang is also a very important horse in the competition world of horses. Mustangs have become known as smart and quick learners because of their lack of human contact. Mustangs learn quickly because once you get Mustangs to trust you enforcedly they trust you and expect you to not harm them.
But you know what people are harming the Mustangs by chasing them down with airplanes and running them until they cannot move and die in their own tracks. The Mustangs are then put in a corral and are dripping wet with sweat in the 100 degree sun. They are given no water. Then the Mustangs are sorted by which ones will be cow ponies, buckaroos, or even worse – dog food.
For one why would you want to feed a dog horse meat, especially horses that were ran and ran until they could run no more. And second the mustangs are in pain and are screaming to get free but they are not able too. Now hear me out on this, would you like it if you were ran for miles and miles for hours with no water in the burning hot sun? And to be trapped in a corral dripping wet with sweat? Then to be separated from your family and never see them again or even worse because the reason you cannot see them again is because they were killed for stupid things like food? Shouldn’t beef and pork be food for animals? They have had vaccines and the Mustangs don’t, for they could be sick and your dog or cat could be killed from unknown diseases.
The Mustangs have not only been a sign for our liberty but they have helped us become free so we should help them become free as our repay to the Mustangs. And also many people enjoy seeing the Mustangs running free and now the only thing they see is lonely mountains and deserts not only because the Mustangs are disappearing because of the cruel roundups but because they are in hiding from the humans their most feared enemy today..
