"She'd bought some Pryor Mountain mustangs"

A Mustang is a free-roaming feral horse of the North American west, descended from horses brought to the Americas by the Spanish.

In 1971, the United States Congress recognized Mustangs as “living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West, which continue to contribute to the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people.”


Today, the Mustang population is managed and protected by the Bureau of Land Management. Controversy surrounds the sharing of land and resources with the livestock of the ranching industry, and also the methods with which the federal government manages the wild population numbers.
