Titled American Mustang
in need of a home.
Why  Am I  doing this:

Spirit The Mustang is a fully adopted mustang with a clear title who lived in peaceful quietness on his owner's farm in Delaware for 10 years. During that time Spirit was mostly a lawn adornment and pet. He was released into the pasture, his halter removed and never handled again except for treats and petting. A fine life for a wild horse in adoption you might think. But in reality its a crisis for this beautiful Stallion.

Because Spirit was never handled or trained he is now nearly impossible to place. Because of his lack of training even vetting , the most basic first-aid and grooming are problematic. Now his family must move and cannot take him. The choice is to find him a new home and foster care or put him down. Most people on the East Coast are not equipped to handle an untrained mature stallion. Because Spirit is also a wild horse it makes the situation more complicated. Spirit needs training, he needs basic vetting and hoof care and he needs to be gelded and he needs a home to live out the rest of his life.
UPDATE On Spirit:
Spirit and his son, Arizona were both rescued and taken to Black Hill's Wild Horse Sanctuary this past spring. It took an army of volunteers for each step of the way and a lot of donations to get them there. Now the two and the rest of the small band  of mustangs related to Spirit and Arizona are all living out their lives in Sanctuary.
