July 26, 2010 – Stiles

I’m sorry for my delay in putting up this post on Stiles! Here are some photographs and information on Stiles from photographer Lynne Pomeranz and Sandi Claypool (of Monero Mustangs).

Sandi shared the following information with me:

Stiles has a 17 year old black and white mare named Pinta. He and Pinta are totally devoted to each other. In addition, he has taken in some other horses that don’t seem to have another band to fit into. We call them the misfits. He first took in Jefito, a two year old stud colt, and has been treating him as his son, teaching him to be a stallion. Then along came Kokoman and Bob the Donkey. He accepted Bob right away, but it took him a while on Kokoman. He seemed to feel that the four year old gelding might be a problem. All differences have been ironed out, though, and Stiles is very proud of his band. He recently also took in a yearling stud colt (Oops) that was in bad shape and came in for a while until he is on his feet. Stiles enjoys it when other young bachelors come by and visit and play. The young white bachelor Platadero is one that comes by, but Stiles always makes sure he doesn’t get too close to Pinta. We have so enjoyed Stiles and his easy going attitude. As you can see from the photos, his favorite pastime is eating! He is such a character, and so good and tolerant with all the other boys who hang in his band.

Here are some recent photographs of Stiles that Lynne Pomeranz sent me.

We were talking recently about how we missed seeing Stiles up here. We are very happy to know he is in such a great home, though. The Monero Mustangs sanctuary is a great place for wild horses like Stiles. It is also a lot of fun to visit, and I’d recommend it to anyone that is down in that area.

  1. It’s great to see Stiles looking so fit and wonderful to see him with companions, and the wide open spaces to roam in.

    Kudos to Monero Mustangs. Another reminder that there is good left in the wild horse world.

  2. thank you Matt for the update, it is good to see him looking so good. I’m happy to see him with his new family. I had been wondering about Stiles for awhile, hoping he was doing ok.
    Do you know if he’s still a stallion, I thought I had heard that he might be gelded?
    take care,

  3. Matt,
    I have also been thinking of Stiles lately. Hope he is doing fine and is not gelded. If he is gelded, he doesn’t seem to know it.
    Any news on the other horse that were gathered last year?

  4. What a beautiful guy. Glad everything worked out for him and he is doing well. Nice that he has a new family, and is living somewhat free. Thanks for all your efforts to get him there. Great story today !
