Here the artist celebrates a noble creature which played such a significant role in the development of the west. These sturdy animals survived hardships imposed upon them by both nature and man. They are the embodiment of the phrase, survival of the fittest. As the Palomino grazes , three companions are ever alert eyes turned to the left at something unknown but perhaps bearing potential danger. The artist depicts these pictureseque creatures with great affection in literature there are many references to vanishig buffalo and grizzly as Monarchs of the Western landscape. Perhaps this animal should enjoy a similar distinction. The artist would certainly concur.
