Painted Ponies

In the early 1500’s Spanish explorers arrived in what we now know as North America and brought painted ponies (pinto) with them. These horses helped form the wild herds of mustangs that were so prevalent through the West.

The Indigenous people were fascinated with these animals believing them to possess magic which would protect them from death or injury during a battle. They loved these horses so much that they raided farms and other tribes to own them.

Characteristically these horses are gentle, intelligent, calm and patient. I can personally attest to these attributes as I own a sweet Tobiano pinto.
