Horses are chosen by hat-draw for
each Extreme Mustang Makeover Participant. All trainers
this year received a mare of approximately 3 years
of age. Cindy's draw was a bay with a tiny white star
on her forehead.
The mare was then sorted from her
pen-mates for loading.
Once sorted and in the loading
chute, BLM officials give shots and place the halters
on. Here Cindy waits for her halter to be placed.
