On the Road: Nevada Goes Wild with a Horse-y License Plate

Everyone from Wild Horse Annie to Hunter Thompson would approve of the announcement today from our friends in Nevada, where the state launched sales of a sparkling new wild horse license plate to rival nearby Wyoming’s bucking bronco. It looks a wee bit like a wild and crazy Lipizzaner, but you can judge for yourself.

The best part: the tag line of “Wild and Free” at the bottom can be interpreted many ways. In the horse world, of course, it refers to the thousands of free-roaming (more or less) wild horses and burros who call Nevada home. More wild horses live there than in any other state. Proceeds from the sale of the plates will benefit wild horse preservation.

By my count, four states have horse-y license plates: New York, Kentucky, Wyoming and Nevada, as of today. Did I forget any?
