The word mustang comes from the Spanish word, mustengo, which means “ownerless beast”. The American mustang originally came from the Spanish stock of horses that were brought to the Americas beginning in the 16th century. Over time, other kinds of horses banded with wild Spanish horses, including quarter horses, draft horses and others. There are specific kinds of mustangs, and they have their own unique breeds.
