Mustang Stallion for Sale in Grand Island, NE
Cisco is a very beautiful BLM mustang gelding. He stands 14. 1 hands and is chestnut in color with a star, strip, snip and white on his chin. He is started under saddle but needs an experienced rider. He has a lot of spunk, and will make a great endurance horse, or a barrel horse. Cisco is very smart, and it won't take much to finish him. He loads great, and stands tied. He needs some work on picking up his feet. More info and pics at www. ShadyAcres6. com on the Shady Acres horse rescue of Nebraska page.
About Grand Island, NE
In 1857, 35 German settlers left Davenport, Iowa, and headed west to Nebraska to start a new settlement on an island known by French traders as La Grande Isle, which was formed by the Wood River and the Platte River. The settlers reached their destination on July 4, 1857, and by September had built housing using local timber. Over the next nine years, the settlers had to overcome many hardships, including blizzards and conflicts with Native Americans. They set up farms but initially had no market to sell their goods until a market opened at Fort Kearny. When the Pike's Peak Gold Rush began, Grand Island was the last place travelers could obtain supplies before they crossed the plains.
