Mustang Mare for Sale in Hitchcock, TX
http: / / www. habitatforhorses. org / adoptaho rse / haley. html Haley was skittish at first due to lack of handling, but is coming around more and more. She is still a little shy with strangers but really a sweet horse. She still doesn't stick around much of her own accord when free in the pasture, she's tentative. With daily interaction, she's much better. With a bit of time and training, she will make someone a nice mare. She comes up easily to people she knows and is easy to approach and saddle. Haley's foster family feels she has a sweet nature and with training, should make a fine family horse. She's also very attractive, and loves treats!
About Hitchcock, TX
Hitchcock was created as a station of the railroad between Galveston and Houston in 1873 and around the turn of the 20th century became a vegetable shipping center. The settlement's economy crashed in the 1930s after insect plagues in the surrounding areas, and the area stayed impoverished until the establishment of the Camp Wallace anti-aircraft training base and the Hitchcock Naval Air Station at the beginning of World War II. After the end of the war, the bases were used as discharge centers, and some former soldiers settled in the area. Hitchcock was established in 1960 as the area's population boomed, topping out at nearly 7,000 by the end of the 1960s. Today, the town serves as a suburb of Galveston and houses workers from the Johnson Space Center.
