Proud Of East Texas: American Mustangs

Joe Dodson is one of a number of the country's top horse trainers taking part in this years' "National Extreme Mustang Makeover", sponsored by the Mustang Heritage Foundation. He is training a mustang who only 72 days ago was running wild in the Nevada desert.

Dodson's Mustang and others trained in the contest will be in a show to be held September 18th at the Will Rogers Colseum in Ft. Worth. The horses will be auctioned off the last day of the show September 21st. Proceeds will go for the feeding and care of Mustangs who have played such an important part in our American history. There are over 30,00 mustangs still needing homes. For more information on mustang adoption and the "extreme Mustang Makeover' go to
