by Oren Arnold. When young Robert Hale came west in 1880, stagecoach bandits took every dime he owned. "Don't be licked, Bob," a friendly girl advised him. "Go catch wild horses and sell 'em. There's plenty wild ones in the hills." Wild horses! There were indeed great free herds of them, roaming the sun-bathed canyons and plains. They were descendants of horses brought by the Spanish pioneers - America had no horses of her own - and were called Mestenos or mustangs because they had never felt a saddle and rarely if ever had seen a man. Bob was intrigued. In three months he had rounded up and sold more than 100 fine animals. In six months he had married the girl. Her name was Maggie, but here sweetness won her a better nickname. Together she and Bob built a fortune from those galloping, bucking, snorting, wild mustangs that were then the most beautiful creatures in the Western wilderness, and for more than 50 years of happy married life this couple was widely known as Mustang and Angel Hale
