“Hooter” – McCullough Peaks, WY
July 19, 2009
I just learned that a stallion from McCullough Peaks that I had come to admire over the years, is gone. Hooter, a red roan tovero colored horse, was approximately 15 years old. Not the most handsome boy or even a very big, impressive horse. What I admired so much about Hooter was just how scrappy he was in his efforts to claim a family. It seemed that almost every time I saw Hooter, he was either fighting to keep a family, or fighting to gain one. I always saw him as a bit of an underdog, but never lacking in courage. At least he died as he lived – wild and free with offspring that will carry on his legacy.
