Caballo prieto azabache, 1967, 2006

Identifier: CCcobos19.18


Albuquerque, New Mexico. A young man about to be executed by the soldiers of Pancho Villa is granted a last wish, to be executed while mounted on his pet horse. As the squad fires, the horse leaps over the wall and saves the young man, but soon after, the horse dies from three bullet wounds meant for its master. Probally a commerical recording. Quality: Good.
