Color: Dark Bay
Redwings Arrival: January 27, 2018
Fire Fly is a darling mustang filly. Fire Fly was born in the Litchfield BLM pens in the summer of 2017 after her mother, Estrella was rounded up from the Devil’s Garden herd.
In late October of 2017 a devoted supporter called to inform the staff at Redwings that there were some Mustangs from the Devil’s Garden Herd in Northern California that were in desperate need of homes. These mustangs were all mares with young foals and with winter fast approaching the local supporters were working hard to find homes for the pairs. Redwings acted immediately and agreed to take some of the mares and foals. The mustang advocate graciously offered to pay for 30 days of gentling with a trainer who specializes in gentling mustangs, as well as their board during their stay with the trainer.
Finally in late January the mustangs were ready for their journey to the sanctuary. The staff have worked with Fire Fly every day since her arrival. Fire Fly leads, stands for the farrier and has had her first bath. Fire Fly has a very friendly and inquisitive personality and is extremely smart.
Fire Fly is now available to an experienced home through our foster to adopt program. Since Fire Fly is not even a year old yet she will need time to mature before she will be ready to train under saddle.
Estrella is now available to an experienced home through our foster to adopt program. She will be ready to start work under saddle very soon.
