EMMETT BRISLAWN/ one of the last stockmen

Here we are in Oshoto, Wyoming, birthplace of the Spanish Mustang Registry. Emmett Brislawn, whose father Bob Brislawn, a close friend of Marguerite Henry and many wild horse advocates of the 50, was a surveyor for the railroad and realized the value of the little horses that roamed Utah, Oregon, Nevada during those early years. In addition to the BLM mustangs, there are also numerous Mustang registries in the country, private breeding enterprizes, that  specialize or concentrate on a particular geography, geno-type, conformation, or characteristic of horse. Neil UiBreaslain , also a son of Bob once said, that indeed it was a competition for recognition to be the most primitive type horse. One differentiates between Spanish Mustang, Sorraia, Wilbur Cruce, Kiger, Cerbat, Colonial, Sulphur Springs, Choctaw, just to name a few...like Ian Tyson says in his song: LA PRIMERA:
"and he became an outlaw and his blood was watered some, but the flame still burns into the new millennium"
