LAREDO, TEXAS – Chanting to the name of “Bravo” were students from Juarez-Lincoln Elementary School in Rio Bravo, Texas.
The kindergarten class at the school were announced as the winners of a competition held to select a new name for a recently adopted Mustang. The class suggestion of “Bravo” was deemed as the best entry from the school.
The Laredo Sector Horse Patrol Unit honored the class with a proclamation officially naming the horse Bravo.
The Laredo Sector Border Patrol has adopted formerly wild mustangs through the Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse and Burro Program. The adopted horses were simply known by their assigned numbers. Students at local schools have been asked to suggest proper names for the horses that convey the importance of their mission and capture their personal characteristics.
