If the white horse is a symbol of fertility, of heroes and of good things, the mustang is truly the symbol of all that is untamed and truly natural in our world today.
Contrast this with modern industry, urban sprawl and modern concerns, and the life of the horse or of the Native Americans who roamed the land long before the arrival of the Spanish, British or other foreigners, and you have some idea of the perfect beauty inherent in these horses. They’re still called wild horses, though the correct term is feral horses. This isn’t to say that they’re running around foaming at the mouth, beating each other up. But well, they ‘are’ wild animals and like all wild animals, must be taken lightly. Descended from the domesticated horses first brought over by the Spanish, the mustang population is not nearly what it once was, though thankfully the breed is protected as a national symbol by federal law. There are several hundred free-roaming feral horses in Canada, but as of February of 2010, there were almost 34,000 wild horses and nearly 5,000 wild burros. Many of those live in Nevada, though Oregon, Montana and Wyoming also have sizable populations of these powerful and wild beasts.
Russ Berrie Yomiko brings the spirit of these wild horses to you with their very own plush mustangs. They are realistically colored and super soft. Best of all, they’re a lot easier to catch than the real thing, so you won’t have any trouble taming these equine pals. At 11 inches, this stuffed horse is just right for snuggles!
