Mustangs are descendants of Spanish, or Iberian, horses that were brought to the Americas by Spanish explorers in the 16th century.a mustang is a stray horse. Many people think that mustangs are simply wild horses rather than a specific breed. These horses bred with other types of horses, including quarter horses and draft horses, to create the breed we know today.

Mustang have no overall characteristics because different breeds of horses have contributed to the development of wild horses in various areas. Draft horses were popular in certain areas among settlers, and hot-blooded horses were more popular in others. Some are large and full-bodied, while others are smaller and daintier in appearance. The abundance of or lack of forage also helps determine size. Horses range from 13 to 16 hands high and are all colors, including black, bay, dun, palomino, gray and spotted.

The word “mustang” comes from the Spanish word “ustengo” which means “ownerless horse” or “stray horse.”
