The origin name of a legend<br />

13<br />

The term "<strong>Mustang</strong>" is derived from the Spanish word 'Mestena' meaning group or herd of horses, and<br />

applies to the "wild" horses of western America. The mustangs were mounted by the Indians and the<br />

white man. The <strong>Mustang</strong> was also the source of a large number of American races. Retained many of<br />

the features Spanish, especially with regard to color. When the conquistadors arrived in the Americas,<br />

the horse had already extinct about 10,000 years. The Spanish brought horses and cattle to the New<br />

World and this would be the action that founded the great cattle industry to be developed extensively<br />

during the nineteenth century. Once the Spanish had been established, after the destruction of the<br />

Aztecs and other indigenous peoples, a large number of Spanish horses escaped or were released and<br />

became wild.<br />

Spanish horses we describe now as And a lusian, was one of the finest races and was considered the<br />

most important in Europe. They formed the nucleus of the great herds of wild horses spread<br />

throughout Mexico, the United States and the western plains of North America.<br />

Sois the <strong>Mustang</strong><br />

At the beginning gof the twentieth century, amounted million wild horses roamed the western states.<br />

How ever, by 1970, their number had been drastically reduced a result of the massacre and whole sale,<br />

to provide pet food and meat for human consumption. The <strong>Mustang</strong> (Wild Horse) is now protected by<br />

law and is preserved on reservation sas the research center Bronco in Porterville, California. The<br />

<strong>Mustang</strong> has classic Spanish profile, thick neck and crowned, and the lush grow thof the mane that is<br />

typical of modern And a lusian. The former type of <strong>Mustang</strong> was of then much less attractive and many<br />

hada heavy head. The picture of this horse and his whole appearance is completely Spanish. The<br />

impression given is of force combined with an air balance and athletic.<br />

The <strong>Mustang</strong> has good for e quarters , strong and powerful shoulder. The crosses are not from but a<br />

rety pic a lof ancient Spanish blood. The legs and hooves of the <strong>Mustang</strong>, as shoes are not protected,<br />

are hard and resistant. In fact, these horses can travel over the roughest terrain with out their helmets<br />

suffer. The else tripe running down the back Is a primitive trait that is still in the horses of Spanish<br />

origin. The <strong>Mustang</strong> can be found in all equine colors and height is13.2-15hh.
