These were the very first "Kiger Mustangs". These dun mustangs were found during the clearing of Riddle HMA in 1976. The following year, the famous Beatty Butte '27' were found. While the 27 horses of Spanish Mustang type got the most press, it was these initial 7 horses found in Riddle HMA that first confirmed to Bill Phillips and E. Ron Harding that the dun colored Spanish Mustang did indeed exist in southeast Oregon.
