A MOMENT TO REMEMBER

Let's recollect. #900 was born in the Coppersmith HMA in Lassen and Washoe County, Nevada near the California Bordertown of Cedarville. For his first year he ran with his family band and was probably expelled by his sire (stallion) somewhere around the age of 1. The seperation from his band was hard, yet the other colts experienced similar fates and so a small group of young bachelors eventually joined a larger bachelor herd and every now and then he would see and from distance reconnect with his mother and his younger siblings....Life was good.
The the helicopter came and the running seemed forever confusing....ending in a pipe corral and cold metal shute. Flags and People, noise, scents unfamiliar and scents of blood sweat and tears...Then the hull of a trailer...2 year old are still small and a lot of pushing and shoving is going on. After that, most likely Fallon processing facility...fall, winter approaching. Hay and water was there, some space no sense...the day after the roundup a chute paralyzed and branded and vaccinated, blood drawn for coggins. - 2 months after capture, processing and castration....
And then some months later a 2 day trailer haul to CANON CITY CORRECTIONAL FACILITY...
Thousands of horses, another world...and today...out with ARAGON on what looks like Washoe County he was hollering for his memories and feeling his muscles stretch and his sineous body emerge from some cage.....
no worry in the world - no pressure - no expectations....
