Etymology an Legend[eedit | eedit soorce]

The name o the ceety came frae a auld 18t century legend. At that time, thare wis a brave horse, incredibly bonnie an defiant, who went tae the lagoon tae drink watter.

The natives an the sodgers o the Argentine Airmy (who wur splorin an treein tae tak control o the land frae the native fowk), wantit tae tame the horse. Thare wur mony attempts tae catch it, but the horse wis brave an it wis aye fechtin, defendin its freedom. Ane day, a group o soldiers corner it against the lagoon, in a ravine, an when they wur sure that it haed nae escape, the horse jumpit tae the watter, killin itsel. It preferred daith tae captivity.

The leebertarian spirit o the horse wis so amazin that the legend o the Bragado horse spread aroond the place an gave name tae the ceety.
