When I first saw the news about a wild Mustang being born in New Paltz, New York I thought I didn't even know anyone had Mustangs in New Paltz. I don't presume to know every horse farm in the town I call home but I would think being the horse lover that I am I would have heard about it through one of my horse friends.

Obviously, the news that Black Crow Mustangs bought a farm and moved in on Springtown Road got past a few of us with a passion for horses. Of course, I had to know more and I wanted to spread the word about the new foal. So I reached out and they got back to me right away.

According to an HV1 article that you can read at blackcrowmustangs.com it was a lifelong dream of MIke's to work with wild Mustangs so when he got the opportunity to make it work he took the chance. The horses he brings to the farm in New Paltz have been in auction pens and waiting at slaughterhouses. He works with organizations that help manage wild mustangs. He and Cody have their hands full when they meet these horses who often don't trust humans at all.

Wild Mustang Foal Born in New Paltz, New York

When I saw they had their first foal I was thrilled. Not just because it is another first for New Paltz but also first for The Black Crow Mustangs. Not a lot of towns in New York can claim they have had an Iconic American symbol born in its borders.

Apparently, a few of the mares arrived at the farm pregnant so we can expect there should be a few more. These wild Mustangs born at Black Crow will get a chance to educate people about wild horses in America because of the work being done by everyone involved in this mission.

This is one of the first videos of the first wild Mustang born at Black Crow Mustangs in New Paltz, New York. It's a Boy.

I reached out to Black Crow Mustangs and had to ask why they decided to put the farm in New Paltz and Mike Reach back with a great answer. Both he and Cody grew up in the Hudson Valley. Mike spent a lot of time in New Paltz and Rosendale. He loves using the rail trail for his rides.

They discovered their current farm for sale and knew it would make a great location for the Mustangs. So they bought it and it is now the home to Black Crow Mustangs. Mike mentioned that they love being able to use the rail trail and the R2R for riding. Mike says it helps the Mustangs get used to people.
