Mustang Conservation and Adoption

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 1, 2013, 10:20 PM
Professional Equine ArtFree Line Art and Stock ArtArticles on Animal GeneticsCheshire Farms the Horse Art Stable

Edit: Added stallions, I'm going to run this till Jan 12th to give people a chance to get entries in, and give me a chance to work on more horses.

Cheshire Farms is part of a conservation program partnered with the BLM as well as independent breeders. Here we are home to American Mustangs who have been blood typed as 75% or more Spanish. With the Mustang herds depleting, and horses being moved from one herd area to another, preservation of bloodlines is more important then ever.

Part of this project is also hosting auctions for Mustangs removed from BLM land. If you would like to adopt one of the following horses, please submit one of the following as a response to this journal:

Application Process: Choose One (you don't have to do all 3 LOL)
1. A Bid in Art (head shot)
2. A Bid in Points
3. A Bid in Writing (short story about the horse)

These horses are all eligible for :iconthemustangregistry:

If people apply for the same horse, I will be the tie breaker, or I might ask the public's opinion via poll.

I bid a drawing on stallion #9 or 8 and mare #6 if this is still running and they are not taken already.

Is this still running or did it close on the 12th??

I know it's February and you wanted to end this in January, but I see some of these don't have bids. Would it be possible for me to enter for one of these?
