Mustang Magic Begins with Ghost

The story of Ghost begins as he was one of the fiercest and most-photographed mustangs. He was mostly spotted just showing up in a herd, like a wrecking ball, instigating fights and chaos and then he would simply disappear. Wild mustang enthusiasts enjoyed capturing his natural, wild presence through a lens.

Now Ghost is now an ambassador for the Mustang breed here at Sweetbeau Horses in Creston, California. He will be greeting guests at Sweetbeau Horses Open House on July 2, 2024.
