CAPTIVE HERD A RED ROAN

Adventure

By Dick Kraut

floating in the breeze.

When the first panic passed. Red Roan turned again toward the prairie. Slowly, he trotted down toward the plain, keen dark eyes searching for his herd. At last he saw a cloud of dust, miles away on the range. It was the captive herd. Already the cowboys were driving them away, taking them from their wild, free existence, to a life of drudgery and pain. Red Roan's hooves pounded, as he raced over the range toward the distant dust cloud.

Soon he was close enough to see his herd, moving close-packed along a broad trail. But, riding on all sides of the wild horses were sharp-eyed cowboys, their sinewy hands gripping lariats. If Red Roan were to come any closer, he would risk capture himself! "It is better to wait ... to follow at a ." the stallion's thoughts ran. ." "Perhaps there will come a chance But all through the afternoon Red Roan followed the herd without an opportunity presenting itself ... a chance for him to attempt to free the other wild horses.

the risk would be too great, reason told him. If he were captured, surely none of the others would escape.

As the sun rose higher and higher, the herd continued to trot along the plbin. But now the air became strangely still. great mass of dark clouds formed menacingly in the skies. All wind ceased, save for a vagrant breeze that turned up the undersides of the cottonwood leaves. Dark-

of thunder.

"Hurry !" the

cowboy shouted

again.

"Git 'em all together, afore they git panicked an' try to run for it!"

Quickly, the cowboys rode among the wild horses, driving them together, trying to soothe them with their voices. But then the first drops began to fall great, spattering drops that heralded a mighty storm.

â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

The

rain began to come down in earnest, lashing the prairie grass, and beating heavily

mares and colts. Unheeding, Red Roan came closer, watching the nervous herd. There was a chance . . .

an ear-splitting concussion, a tremendous rumble of thunder shook

the earth. Split seconds later, the heavens seemed to explode, as a glaring streak of lightning appeared. The colts whinnied in terror, and sought shelter against mothers' sides. But again the thunder bled, and now the rain poured down, heavily than ever. It was all the cowboys could do to

The sound pierced even the noise of the tempest. Every mare heard it and recognized it as the voice of her master. Again he whinnied louder, and then, galvanized into action, he galloped toward the herd. In a moment, he was among them, hooves beating the ground, a brilliant gleam of color in the darkness of the storm. His shrill cry was a challenge, and an order! ''Follow

me

to safety!"

Scarcely had he sped through the herd, than every wild horse had obeyed his imperious command. Swiftly they scattered, evading the cowboys who were riding herd on them. Then, seeing Red Roan racing away from them toward the hills, they followed him. While the bewildered cowboys tried desperately to quirt their terrified, panicky horses to the pursuit, Red Roan gathered his herd behind him. The suddenness of his move caught the

cowboys by surprise. It was a full three minutes before they could take up the chase in the terrible downpour. In that three minutes, the crimson stalhad led his fleeing herd to the edge of the broad stream he had crossed but a short time before. Now it was a deeper, lion

One by one, they reached it. Chests heaving with the mighty effort, they scrambled up the bank to where Red Roan was waiting for them. One by one they came, until all had crossed the river safely. Without a moment's pause, the red stallion wheeled about and led his herd away from the river toward the mountains that were much closer now. But in heartÂťRed Roan was worried. He knew that the cowboys had taken up the pursuit, that even now they must be galloping after the herd.
