American Mustang Description
  The American Mustang has survived the wild for several hundred years. Man has captured this breed to gentle it. If the American Mustang bonds with its owner, it will bond stongly, but it is a breed that will do as it pleases. Because they are used to survival in the wild, The American Mustang has a very strong sense of self-preservation and will not do anything that puts them in danger. They have extreme endurance. They are very intelligent and can be trained, if they want to be trained. The mustang comes in all sizes, shapes, colors, and types of build. The most common color seen is sorrel and bay. Although the flashier colors such as Paints, Appaloosas, Palominos, Buckskins and black seem to have been bred out of the breed, it is not uncommon to see those colors. The American Mustang generally has the Spanish-type head, recognizable by the straight or concave forehead and convex nose. Its ears are often curled towards one another. Its chest is narrow, but deep and the chestnuts are small or missing. Because its legs and feet are extremely sound, the American Mustang is less prone to injury.
