About a hundred years back, First Sergeant George Ostrom made a trip up to Crow Agency, Montana, in search of a good, tough mount that he could slip into his division’s remuda of horses. Red Wing was just such a horse. When he returned to his station just outside of Cheyenne his commanding officer noticed the good looking horse and chose him as his own. Unfortunately, as soon as he stepped aboard him, two black bear mascots who belonged to the men simultaneously entered the parade ground. Rider and horse parted company. Little did the pair know at the time that their image would be preserved as the longest lasting license plate image in history.
