Part Daryl Hannah-voiced documentary, American Mustang is spliced with the mini-tale of a wild horse being tamed. Mustang is educational in service to activism, circling urgently around the fact that there are more wild horses in government facilities than there are on public land. Private cattle herders see them as pests, compelling the Bureau of Land Management to round them into traps using low-flying helicopters. As government property, they're basically just stored, trucked around to various facilities, and all too frequently, the film alleges, sold to slaughter for as little as 10 bucks a head. It's not really fair that horses should be held above any other animal led to slaughter, but Mustang knows they are.
