Photograph taken of Bronco Coyote Poem Written: For nine long years a cow horse/ And never even guessed/That he could twirl and buck/And whirl and pile the very best./But now he awakens to his calling/And there can't a man be found/That can sit astride Coyote's hide/When he starts going 'round/For he is the master Bronco/Suckled of an old she bear./ Sired of a flying demon/Born to buck and rear./Piles the big time Cowboy/Matters not their skill/By best and worst he has been cursed/For he bucks them off at will./Dares all men to a sitting/Not a man that can't be thrown./But there lives a Bronco Coyote /The horse that can't be rode./ Then let him live on forever/Forever feared and famed./Here's to old Coyote , the horse/ the Bronco that can't be tamed./Composed by Cowboy Curley Fletcher at Sonoma, June 16, 1917.
