Chief Going Streak's First Gunfight
This video from the Muskogee Heritage Days Festival demonstrates the trusting nature of Bryant Rickman's Spanish Mustangs.
Despite never having been exposed to gunfire, especially a gunfight only 20 feet away,
Chief Going Streak found comfort in Bryant's calm demeanor. The stallion's initial response was sensibly to flee the gunshots, but soft words and an easy hand settled Streak down as they stood to watch the remaining action.
Oddly, Streak continued to watch the "fighters" for another 10 minutes afterwards to make certain they were not going to resume their fight!
