Wild horses run amuck in Brandon

Brandon Township included almost thirty thousand horses, or if broken at all, then quick broken, meaning that a mare might not bite your hand when you approach them with leathers. They came in every possible size and color: flea-bitten grays, liver chestnuts, rich buckskin browns, skewbalds and velvety blue roans. Every kind of sock a horse could wear appeared on mismatched legs. Stars and blazes emerged like smudged paint that glowed on their muzzles as they galloped by in sheer abandon.
