She's right this forum is dead. I try to keep checking back once in a while to see if anyone has posted but I just got tired of talking to myself.
As for Mustangs being different than Domestic horses I really don't see a difference in mine. Once I got them gentled down they are just as big of babies as my other "Domestic" horses. The only thing I can say is different is that I can go out in the "pasture" and catch any of them but last fall my mare Peanut got lose from us in an area that had no fences and she perked up as if to say "I know this kind of land, I am free again" She was a bear to catch, even with the grain bucket. My other "domestic" horses would never have even left thier human companions in that situation. Or they would have headed back to the horse trailer or the house. Peanut just took off bucking and kicking in the opposite direction for miles. We finally herded her very carefully to a corner of fence, but as soon as she figured out what we were up to she tried her hardest to avoid it. Once I had ahold of her halter again she was a big kitten once again and finished out the day under a saddle with no more complications.
As for the foals born in captivity, I really dont see any difference in them. YO-YO was born here and she is from two mustang parents and she is just as gentle as the others, and she is like my domestic horses and would want to stick to the saftey of human company if she were to get lose.
I must add though, that my horses were adopted when they were 3 yr olds so that may have helped curb their wild instincts. They were very quick to learn that that nice dry hay in the winter was much better than having to dig to find your meals. They gain weight so much faster than domestic horses. Probably a "survival of the fittest" thing I am sure.

Good luck on your paper!
