A former wild horse now works a Wyoming range with a sheepherder. Dot was trained by prison inmates and adopted for the ranch. The first week he arrived, a herder was lost in a blizzard and in danger of freezing. The rider dropped the reins and held onto the horses neck as the sure-footed mustang found his way home.
