Here is what became of some of the Wild Horses "adopted" out of Cornell University in NY last summer, with the help of the USWHBA;
Rutgers University receives 4 Mustangs. On Sunday, August 23rd.
2009, Robin Rivello and Michael Yodice delivered 4 Mustangs from the Cornell University adoption in Ithaca New York, to Dr. Sarah Ralston, VMD PhD, associate professor of animal science at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Dr. Ralston is one of the top equine nutritionists in the country. Her works and studies have been published in many of the foremost equine veterinarian journals,books, and magazines. Dr. Ralston and several of her students travelled to Cornell to see their new horses. Dr. Ralston has a young horse teaching and research program where the students learn to handle the horses while doing nutrition and behavior studies. Robin is teaching the Rutgers students about Mustang behavior and showing them how the process of gentling and training a Mustang progresses. At the end of the year, the Mustangs will be sold at auction to qualified buyers. Here are the Mustangs that will be part of the Rutgers University Class of 2010.
