Once he had roamed the mountains of Mexico, a small but high-hearted stallion, proud leader of a herd of wild mustangs. Then man had shattered his life, driving him from his mountain freedom into the prisons of stock pen and fenced pasture. At first Dragon knew only fear and hatred in man's world. But later he came to know something even worse - the boredom and discontent of a once-free animal now confined and kept. Gone was the need for his courage and intelligence, his strength and stamina and speed. Gone was his sense of purpose. Life was dull and slow for Dragon, until fourteen-year-old Lyle Hunter entered it. Fearful and distrustful of men, Dragon had never tolerated handling, never been broken to ride. But Lyle looked at the wary little stallion, loved him, and dreamed a great dream. And with that dream came a new day for Dragon. This inspiring sequel to A Horse Called Dragon continues the true-life story of Dragon No. 103, the small appaloosa-marked stallion captured in Mexico and brought to the United States to become one of the foundation sires of the Pony of the Americas breed.
