LEO (Law Enforcement Officer) the Mustang

LEO the Mustang with Charles Bunyard, Jr.LEO (Law Enforcement Officer) is a 4-year old bay Mustang gelding who was adopted this winter by military veteran Charles Bunyard and the Mustang Heritage Foundation.  He was a wild mustang living in the corrals maintained by the Bureau of Land Management in Oklahoma.  Charles and LEO are participating in the Mustang Heritage Foundation’s Veterans & Mustangs Program.  Since his adoption, LEO has spent months in Georgetown working with Charles and Katie Ketterhagen, a professional trainer, to be gentled and trained.  Charles has generously agreed to allow LEO to be included in the live auction at the 34th Annual Awards Banquet to raise funds for The 100 Club of Central Texas.  Once LEO is fully trained, our high bidder will need to meet specific requirements in order to bring him home and ensure he receives the care he needs.

 

 

  • The Bureau of Land Management requires an outside corral with a minimum of 400 ft2 per animal
  • All fences and gates must be at least six feet high
  • Shelters must be at least 12X12ft and can be a three-sided shed attached to the corral or a box stall in a barn attached to the corral, allowing LEO to move freely between the corral and the shelter
  • Provide transportation allowing LEO to ride loose and have enough space to turn around
  • Complete the Bureau of Land Management Application for Adoption of Wild Horses or Burros (provided)

The Mustang & Veterans Program with the Mustang Heritage Foundation seeks to assist military veterans in learning marketable vocational skills and gaining on-the-job training for a future occupation in the equine industry.  The veterans choose a wild mustang, untouched by human hands, and spend approximately 100 days transforming their new companion to a gentle and adoptable equine.  At the end of the program, the previously wild horses are adopted by their veteran participant or placed into new homes.
