The History of the Herd - Jicarilla Apache
By Barbara Kiipper
It is told that the Jicarilla Apache did a roundup shortly after World War Two, the horses were descendants of the Spanish Conquistadors horses. Some of these horses escaped and moved to the Carson Forest section. This became the parent herd which started the Jicarilla herd of today. Indeed, our herds DNA has been infused by the blood of these horses from the last 200 years. This explains our Spanish blood heritage that we see today in our DNA samples. Enjoy this blog on their rich history.
Our mission at JMHA is to promote mustang ownership to preserve their existence through leadership, humane treatment, education, and building partnerships. The mustang is a living piece of American history that needs our support, now, more than ever. JMHA's efforts to help the mustangs are modest at present, but we have grand aspirations for the future, with a desire for continued growth so that we can continue helping one mustang at a time. With your generous contributions we are able to pay our trainers, provide feed and board to our mustangs and pay for veterinary expenses and necessary admin expenses. Every contribution helps, so we encourage you to become a JMHA sponsor today. On behalf of all of us at JMHA, thank you for caring about our wild horses!
