The Calico Mountains is one such area, deserving of recognition and careful management, to preserve the uniqueness and high quality of the horses who live here. The horses in the Calico Complex represent some of the best descendants of the Pioneer Ranching tradition. They have excellent conformation, very desireable size, and good minds, not to mention a wonderful array of colors and color patterns. Learn about these horses and the unique ecological and historical environment that surrounds them. This project is a continuing research project. Check back for updates.
