Long Description:
"VOVO, taureau vedette de la manade AUBANEL-BARONCELIA, est né le jour de Noël 1944 au Clamadou, aux Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, dans la manade RAYNAUD où sa mère, la vache Gypt-is, avait trouvé refuge après une escapade.
VOVO commença tôt sa brève mais époustouflante carrière de cocardier.
De 1946 à 1955, il sillonna toutes les arènes de la région
et signa des courses mémorables.
Sa domination en piste, empreinte de fureur, de force et d'agressivité, fut à son apogée dans les années 1950.
A l'affiche de son nom, les arènes étaient prises d'assaut.
Marqué par les nombreux coups donnés au combat, VOVO est mort sur ses terres saintoises en novembre 1959, non sans avoir auparavant assuré sa descendance dans plusieurs élevages, étant resté « entier » jusqu'à la fin de sa vie."
