UPDATE MAY 21ST:
We took all six of the Mustangs on an extreme back country pack trip this past week. We ride deep into the outlaw country known as "Robber Roost". This country is made up of slick rock canyons and hidden trails with very little water sources. The outlaws loved this area due to the mild winters and the ability to hide out from searching posses. The Mustangs did their jobs very well on slick rock trails.
Murph is progressing quite nicely. He went into the Grand Canyon as a pack horse and proved himself a willing hard worker with lots of endurance. He then joined a team of 6 men on a mountain retreat in the slick rock slot canyons. He has mastered the hobbles and will out run a man on foot easily. He is a real power house On the trail.
update april 21st:
Murph proved himself this week as he went on a pack trip in and out of the Grand Canyon with a different string of horses. From tourists, to tunnels, to bridges he was an all around favorite of the trip. He packs well, has a strong frame and always carried the heaviest load. He is developing into a confident lead saddle horse. One of his funny quirks... he hates walking on concrete.
