Another great discovery - even in its rough condition. Thanks to Nick for doing the legwork again.

It appears that there are still a few of these ponies left in Republic County.

This one a little tough to get to, but old overgrown public roads always make the journey a little easier....pretty jungley spot, couldnt get underneath or to the side very well
