Ears pointed forward, still alert for danger. Nostrils flared large and mouth wide open, gasping for all the air He can bring into his lungs . This Lead Stallion has just led His herd of wild ponies on an all out run away from a threat. Covered with sweat and veins still bulging from a swiftly beating heart, He has finally arrived to safety and a cool drink at the Springs here at Chisholm Trail Park in Yukon, Oklahoma.
Indian Pony, Mustang, Spanish Colonial Horse, American Indian Horse.
These are just a few names given to these once Wild and Free Spirits of the Plains. And yes, they at one time did wander this very land and plains that I call Home. The Springs now have a Dam which makes a very nice pond for the Townsfolk to stroll around, but I suspect hardly any give a thought to the Mustangs, or God Dog as the Indians first called the ponies, watering here.
