Maricruz came to the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary from a private donor, Caballos de Destino, in Hot Springs, SD. She is a lovely grulla Spanish mustang mare born in 2003. The color grulla, in the dun family of colors, is the Spanish name for the blue-gray color of the sandhill crane. Her primitive colors include a dorsal strip, leg barring, and stripes on her withers. The broken stripe on her face has a cross right at the top which gave the inspiration for her name.
