Facts about Santiago

  • Breed: Mustang Mix
  • Color: Chestnut/Sorrel
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Male
Santiago is a 2004 mustang gelding standing 15.1 hh. This handsome boy trailers, halter, leads, lunges, and is learning to stand for the farrier like a gentleman.

This little gelding was adopted from the Bureau of Land Management's Wild Horse and Burro Program, but is properly titled and looking for a new permanent home. Unfortunately none of his previous homes taught him anything, so he is eager to get started on learning.

Santiago has not been broke to ride, so he will need someone who is well versed in training green horses, or a patient, horse savvy person who can hire a trainer. He is friendly, smart and gets along well with other equines. He would love another horse to be friends with!

This horse is currently available for adoption, but is NOT being housed at the Whatcom Humane Society farm facility. She is being cared for at a private equine facility.

If you are interested in learning more about this horse or would like to set up a time for a meet and greet, please complete a Whatcom Humane Society equine/livestock adoption application and email it to: animalcontrolmgr@whatcomhumane.org. You may also fax your application to (360)733-4746 or drop it off at our Division Street shelter.

Equine/Livestock applications are available on our website at http://whatcomhumane.org/applications/. Please note on your application which horse(s) you are interested in.
