Mustangs Available for Adoption, In-House Adoptions & Sponsorship
We have many beautiful Mustangs available for adoption. Please see the photos and life stories of these amazing horses below. Please contact Mona today and begin your journey of owning one of America's Wild Horses.
If you ever dreamed of having a horse of your own but couldn't, we may be able to to fulfil that dream. Adopters choose their horse. They pay monthly cost of $125.00, which supplies their horse with hay, grain, bedding, wormings, daily care, routine vetting and blacksmith care. Adopters are recognized on the website as well as with their names on a plaque on the stall door, provided updates and pictures and allowed generous scheduled visitations. In-House Adopted horses remain in the custody of Ever After Mustang Rescue and will be guaranteed lifetime care.Too expensive? Consider partial or shared adoption. A great gift or group endeavor.

Horses Available for Adoption
Grace is a 13 yr.old dark brown mare. She was found at the Camelot auction by a N.J. rescue, who outbid the "killer buyers" to save her and her unborn foal. Only later did they realize she was a mustang and shortly after Lexi's birth they asked us to take them, gentle and train mom and find them both a good home.
This 15H mare is now in a regular training program. She is very intelligent and responsive and should be ready for a human partner very soon.

We named her Star when she arrived here in Dec. 2002. She was brought here by kind adopters who could not keep her. Although she had only minimal handling she was trusting and in excellent shape. Her color is light Bay with a white star. She is approx 14.3-15 hands. She had been captured in the Calico Mountains Herd Management Area, near Gerlach, Nv. on Dec.18, 2000 at 2 years old. Now at 13 years she still has many years to give to a special person who can appreciate her kind, gentle nature. Are you her person?

I am Sue, I am a 17 year old mare. My soft brown eyes are kind and gentle, although I am still a little distrustful. I am a beautiful liver chestnut with a flaxen tail and mane. I need a patient handler to bring me along. I can lift my feet for the blacksmith and tolerate saddling. If you choose me I will be a faithful friend and should do well at any discipline.

My previous home named me Maude. I am a big sturdy mare at 15h. I have been ridden western for most of my 22 years but still need to learn a lot about ground manners and needs a refresher course undersaddle. I have plenty of energy and lots of good years ahead for a loving family. Please consider me.
I am also available as an "in house" adoptee.
Charlotte is what they call me. I am a big boned 15h bay mare. I came here at age 17 and had never been handled. I have learned to trust and love humans. I allow them to groom and lead me. I have been ridden and think I like it! I would be a worthwhile project for a kind and knowledgeable person. Charlotte is now 22 years old.
"In House Adopted" by family and friends in memory of Marianne Potter, a lifelong horse lover.
Cheyenne is a 14 year old bay mare with a real presence and flowing gaits. We found her in a spacious wooden rail turnout with a run in stall to the barn. She could see other horses from here, but was not turned out with them. She was not haltered or leadable. We continue to work on gentling and trust issues. It took some time to shave her neck to reveal her freeze brand and identity. Foaled 1998, captured 9-19-2000 in the Delamar Mountains of Nevada. Adopted 7-28-01 and titled 9-24-02. Although very distrusting and fearful, she is very sweet and kind. She tries very hard to please. She can be turned out with others and respects electric fences. Her training will continue. If you are interested in this horse you can become part of the training process and see if she is the horse of your dreams.
Destiny arrived here Feb. 17, 2009 from a dealer in Maine. She was frightened and aggressive, but settled in well with the other horses. Her freeze brand revealed her history: foaled in 1998 in the Monte Cristo HMA. She was gathered as a yearling on 1-26-99 and adopted a few months later on 5-22-99. The next 10 years are lost to us . Only Destiny knows what her life was like. We only see her at present as fearful and distrusting, although there are moments of curiosity and a desire to be nearer to us. Occasionally we can brush her neck and shoulders. She needs a person of her own to bond with and gain confidence. We will continue to work with her until her special person comes along. Please call us if you are interested in Destiny.
Her "In House Adopter" is Elizabeth Hunter Engel's.
Arrived at rescue Nov. 21, 2008. She had been taken into custody by humane officials and at this time was unable to be haltered and led. The Government freeze brand revealed her history to the point of adoption in 2001. She had been captured as a 5 year old in 2000 in Sands Spring, Oregon and shipped to the Northeast to a satellite adoption. The following years are vague, but thanks to a young "In House" adopter her expenses are being met and we will continue with her gentling and training along with addressing her physical needs. Already we see a weight gain in this 16 hand, 16 year old, chestnut mare. She has been haltered and is leadable.
Phoenix is still waiting to be adopted into a permanent home but meanwhile she has been happily "Adopted In-House" by the Doran/Rayer Families.
Hali - light riding would be good for her!
Registered name, Brilliant Disguise. She is a Registered Half Arabian, Half Trakhener cross. This 20 yr.old chestnut mare has done it all, well broke and ridden regularly, but now deserves a life of loving care, with light to moderate riding and plenty of pasture time. She is good for the farrier.

Last Chance known to us as LC has a very interesting past. She was captured in the Twin Peaks Horse Management Area, CA on 7-26-01. She was 6 yrs. old. On 2-11-02 she was shipped to a maintenance facility where she was processed and branded again on the hip for easy identification. She remained in holding until purchased by a buyer in Florida on 5-26-06. The next step would have been transport to Mexico and slaughter, except for the intervention of a dedicated wild horse advocate. She came to Maine April of 2007 for training through a NE effort to find her a worthy home. (There is another whole story in here for any interested persons), but to continue, she responded well to training and was under saddle by the following July. LC appeared at the BLM booth at the Equine Affaire in Nov. 07 and placed very soon after. Sadly, she became lame with the increase of work. X-rays showed she had foundered at some earlier time and had some deformities of the coffin bone. With time and trimming to compensate, she has to the surprise of our vet, remained sound. He feels she would be able to do short trail rides a few times a week. NO RING WORK. If you enjoy brief rides one to three days a week, LC may be the horse for you. Come take a look at her.
LC's sponsors are Ruth Swift, Jane Alpert, and Michael Young.
Addendum: LC's earlier adopter chose another horse and they are both enjoying each other. They have appeared in local horse shows and can be seen at our "Mustangs in Motion" in August.
Chalupa was adopted as a 12 year old burro from Rutland VT. In 2000 he joined our educational program and is our number one greeter to all visitors.
Reno Blue named so because of his blue roan coloring and is birthplace near Reno, NV. He was born in 1985. He was adopted at a satellite adoption in Whately, Massachusetts in 1986, gentled and trained with us with the intention of placing him. It was soon decided Reno would be a pioneer for his breed in the New England area, where mustangs were still distrusted and misunderstood. He would help to dispel the myths and inaccuracies and promote new adoptions. He lived up to every expectation and continues to visit schools, organizations, make public appearances and give pony rides to disadvantaged youth. He is part of our drill team, participates in our outreach programs and has competed in local horse shows. This truly amazing ambassador is financially supported by Portland Magazine. We thank them very much for all they do for Reno, so he can continue his very important work.
BraveHeart was foaled on March 30, 1997 in captivity at the Litchfield Corrals in Lassen, CA. He was shipped to Cross Plains, TN for adoption on September 15, 1998 where he was determined blind. He was adopted and then brought to Ever After Mustang Rescue, for possible lifetime care.
Braveheart has since grown into a handsome 16 hand blue roan, that our vet does not believe is blind. His bold and strong personality requires consistent and firm care along with plenty of love. He now serves as an ambassador, where you can see him at many of events.
Jazz is a handsome 10 year old gelding born in captivity. His sire being a mustang and his mother a POA, he definitely shows the best of both breeds. His winter coat is pure white with black mottling around his mouth and nose, but shedding out reveals large black spots on the skin surface of his chest and sides. Truly unique.
At 14 hands his mustang heritage reveals a stocky, solid body, strong durable legs and great hooves.
He was chosen as our "Choice of the Month" for February 2011 and scheduled to go to HorseTenders for further training and then a loving lifetime home. It was very hard for us to accept that we were seeing changes in him. Our veterinarian confirmed Jazz had almost all of his eyesight.
We are still hoping for a miracle but in any event he will be cared for and loved here. We are already seeing Grant staying at his side attempting to help him negotiate the pasture.
Registered QH foaled May 13, 1983. He has lived in Maine his entire life and has given much pleasure to many. He will be cared for and live out the rest of his life here with us.
In-house adopted by Barbara Neckers.
Owhyee Lady was the first mustang to set foot on the land at Bush Brook Farm (now home of Ever After Mustang Rescue) in the fall of 1983. She had been captured as a 5 yr. old in the Owhee Desert of Nevada and transported to an adoption center in Cross Plains, Tn. Her right hind leg had been injured at some point and was badly infected. Euthanasia was considered until long time and devoted wild horse advocate, Kay Cushman adopted her, transported her to NH and healed the leg. It was here that I found this truly amazing coal black horse with a small star under her forelock. This would have to be the Ambassador for all wild horses. Our life together carried us all around the area, volunteering at BLM Adoptions, Competitive Trail, Hunter paces and visits to schools and organizations to promote adoptions. Her job well done over 20 years, she has been retired to the rescue and particitates in both youth and adult programs. Now graying, her heart remains huge and her gentle, kind nature an inspiration.
Beau is a beautiful quarter horse type palomino who is in his mid to late 20's. He was surrendered to us just prior to his owners death. Beau would love to have his very own in-house adopter.

Crossed the rainbow bridge February 14, 2013 in her mid 30's.
Jack B Nimble
Jack B Nimble came to Bush Brook farm in early 1983 as a two year old. He was to be a companion to Owhyee Lady and a personal horse. Early on he injured a tendon and required monitored riding and turnout. This handsome 16h chestnut gelding will live out his life here in familiar surroundings and is financially supported by personal funds. Jack will greet you while visiting and will participate in educational programs.
Reno Bay was foaled in the Antelope Herd Area of Nevada and captured as a 6 yr. old. He was adopted one year later to a couple in Maine who treated him kindly but lacked time, knowledge or skills to further his training. They surrendered him to the rescue several years later. Reno was kind, gentle and easy to handle. He loved people and attention and seemed to enjoy new challenges. However, he did not take readily to saddle. For this reason he became hard to place. As the years passed, he became part of our youth and outreach programs working well with ground work. He has earned his right to live his days here and is

Foxfire, or Foxy, was adopted in 1987 to a lovely home at a year old, but was later surrendered when his owner/rider grew to adulthood. He has been part of our Youth Program and has made many public appearances. Foxfire stands at 14 hands, weighing about 700 lbs, a beautiful chestnut with one white sock and a white star on his forehead. His eyes are soft and kind and he loves attention and grooming.

Ginger got the attention of a whole city when she required surgery for fractured bones in her knee. The entire community came together to finance necessary surgery and follow-up care. Her recovery is complete and although pain free, she is left with a slight limp. Thus, she will require lifetime care here.
Ginger is "In-house Adopted" by Barbara Marran.
Cassidy was foaled in 1987 in Bluewing Mountains, Nevada, near Gerlach. He was captured as a baby and made his way east through a satelitte adoption and was later surrendered to us. Now at 24 years of age, he participates in our outreach program and youth program. Cassidy is an extremely lovable mustang.
Cassidy has been lovingly In-House Adopted by Harris & Sharon Neckers, of New Jersey.
Grant was born in captivity from a mustang mare (Charlotte) and a burro on August 13, 1996 in New York. He was brought to this rescue along with his mother. Neither had any previous handling. Mom did very well with training. After some serious attemps to train Grant, he decided to remain independant. Not all of us ever fit in "the box" we're given. So it is with Grant. He lives happily here, going out daily with friends and coming into his stall every night. We will honor this special guy and enjoy what he has to offer.
Grant is sponsored by Sharon Beal.
Cherokee has always been our "hard luck kid". Born here out of a mustang mare as a complete suprise on March 31, 1984 he soon showed signs of clubbed front feet. Surgery and years of corrective shoes followed with 90% success. He grew to a hansome 15h seal brown gelding and joined our mustang drill team. He served as an ambassador and made many public appearances. During this time he had numerous treatments for cancerous growths around his face. The latest was very close to the left eye and had invaded bone. This wonderful horse that has given so much to so many will live the remainder of his life with us in comfort. He continues to eat well, all systems functioning and is turned out daily with friends. When this is no longer possible, we will help him cross the "rainbow bridge".
Cherokee is sponsored by Andrea Acomb in memory of her mustang "Mountain Spirit's Echo".
