Mine That Bird is probably the most famous horse in Roswell this weekend, but there is a new resident at Assurance Home who might be just as big a hero in his own way one day.
Captain Jackson, a wild mustang who is undergoing gentling training as part of Assurance Home’s Mustang Project, has been in Chaves County since March 9, and he is in the process of becoming a therapeutic animal.
“It has been a while since we had a new mustang here,” said Ron Malone, Assurance Home executive director.
Assurance Home is a 16-acre facility for severely abused and neglected teens that has been a Roswell fixture since 1979. The home has been at its current location on 18th Street since 1982.
