 El Caballo, Sacred Dog

In the Summer of 1493,

... fresh hoof prints in the sand.

Spanish Horses,

 crossed the stormy sea,

then swam ashore to land.

Vaqueros, Cowboys, Indians,

Whole nations changed their style,

El Caballo, Sacred Dog,

brought freedom,

If only for a while.

The Spirit of the West,

Is a mustang running free,

Legends born on flashing hooves

became our legacy.

Folks who've never drank the wind,

Can't hope to understand,

But, there's more horses,

than there's ever been,

fresh hoofprints,

in the sand!
