Kiger Mustangs were found roaming the Kiger Gorge of the Steen's
Mountains near Burns, Oregon. These horses were trapped and unknown to man for many
years. We have since been able to bring these herds in through the
BLM (Bureau of Land Management) to vaccinate the animals, care for any
injuries, and also sell some of the herd. The BLM then returns the
remaining horses to the wild so as not to
endanger this beautiful, graceful creature. These horses continue
to flourish, breed, and live free in the Steen's Mountains. Through DNA testing,
we know that these horses bloodlines trace
back to the Spanish horses brought over by the early explorers of
We were fortunate
to go on a round up and watch these wild horses in captivity.
They are amazing creatures. We have since bought some Kiger Mustangs
and brought them to our ranch in Central California. We have
owned our Mustangs for about ten years now and wouldn't trade
them for any other breed out there. We love our horses, and even
though the word "Mustang" usually is connected with wild and unruly,
this is not true of our Kiger Mustangs. They are gentle, kind
and love people.
We breed our two
Kiger Stallions with
our 4 brood mares. "Taurus Moon" is our 14 year old son of "Steen's Kiger" and a half brother to "Donner" (the horse
Dreamworks purchased to create their new movie "Spirit").
We have had him since he was 8 months old and he is as gentle as
they come. Taurus loves to show off by running and kicking up
his heals. What a sight that is to see. We also have an 8 year
old Grulla stallion, "Stormy," who is ready for stud
service. Click on their
