Chico -- my "living legend" of America...

"The most beautiful, the most spirited and the most inspiring creature ever to print foot on the grasses of America." - J. Frank Dobie

I think Chico heard this quote somewhere and that's why he's always so anxious to get right in front of the camera.

And why he's never understood how the other horses refuse to give him the credit and respect that is due him.

We won't tell him that mustangs could also just be called feral horses - introduced exotics - brought over from Europe.... He's a little proud of his wild Spanish heritage.

And I'm pretty fond of this little wild horse.
