Every time I experience the majesty of this very unique herd, with their distinctive primitive dun markings, I am in awe! It is truly a privilege to see these horses in the wild where they belong! Thanks to the tireless efforts of other volunteers in bringing awareness to the plight of this herd, I felt compelled to volunteer as well, and I fell completely in love with them! The danger of not experiencing these horses in the wild is real and cannot be accepted. Carter Reservoir Mustangs Inc. continues to bring that awareness to others and I am proud to be a member!

Long before they became a public charity we have worked with Darice to the the Carter Reservoir Mustangs. To see this organization continue its mission and find the Iberian ancestry of these magnificent horses is so heartwarming. These are such special horses of which we have helped many, so we are glad to see their heritage proven.

Five stars simply isn't enough!!!!!

For christmas this year, I was given a trip, anywhere I wanted to go. I chose to go to California to hopefully see the Spanish mustanges in their natural habitate. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and we were unable to cross the mountains. I will attempt another trip when the weather has improved. Our wild horses are treasure for all to see and need to be preserved for future generations. I am afraid their time is running short. Thank you Darice for all your efforts.

I bow my head for the will and durability the nonprofit organization puts in to preserve this herd. Especially in times like this where BLM offers options for herd management which are not fully accepted by the general public. Education and bringing these horses and their dynamics to the public is mandatory to make the right decisions.... 5 Stars here to Carter Reservoir Mustangs Inc .....!!!!!
