Ohio man seeks to rehome private Mustang herd

Over 20 years ago, Nelson Lindsey of Alledonia, Ohio, got involved in an obsession that took such hold on him that he immersed himself in it. His passion became the Mustangs – the hooved beauties of the West. Lindsey researched Mustangs and learned everything he could about them. His connection to Mustangs was complete and he adopted his own.

His first couple of horses were little stallions less than one year old. He bought them in 1995 in Columbus for $125 each from the Bureau of Land Management. BLM requires horses to remain with the adoptive owner for a year, and then the new home receives title to each horse – thereafter BLM no longer has title or control.

According to Kristy Foster Seachrist who wrote this original story for Farm and Dairy, Lindsey was jubilant. He said,

It was a dream for me to get them, and I thought I was doing something good.

Several months later, Lindsey bought two mares at Bridgeport, West Virginia, from another BLM auction. He’s always had an interest in horses and acknowledged that Mustangs are special to him. As the years passed, so did Lindsey’s Mustang herd. At this writing, he owns 45 Mustangs.

But times change and Lindsey is now recovering from hip replacement. He is no longer able to get around as before. Now that he is attempting to rehome his horses, no one seems to have an interest in Mustangs.

Lindsey would like other people to enjoy the horses as much as he did and give them a good home. He is disappointed that not more people want to preserve Mustangs. He says, “It’s our country’s history and no one cares.”

Over the years, he realized the horses’ endurance, intelligence and their training ease have made owning them worthwhile and a real pleasure.
