Artist's Description

Photo taken 1989

This little Pinto stallion was one I owned & showed back
in the 80"s. He was by the black overo Paint stallion “Cisco Kid” out of a pony mare. He was also fairly quiet to ride in
company with other horses. Standing only just on 14 hands
high he showed his pony parentage, with short stocky legs.

His markings were known as Medicine Hat, with the dark
colouring on the top of his head “war bonnet” & on the
chest “war shield” with a little colouring on the flanks. You can
even see a handprint on his flank.

The Cheyenne Indians favoured this type of paint horse above all the other coloured ones because they were said to protect the rider in battle.
