The Scent Is Fresh
Painting - Oil Pastel
Wild Nokota stallion sniffing the night air, keeping a lookout near the waters edge. His color is what is known as a near black, black head, legs tail and back blending into a brown near his belly. He has blue eyes which is common for a Nokota. And being a mustang is hardy, intelligent with great stamina and jumping ability. Nokotas were a favorite of The Sioux Indians who bred and trained them for hunting, battles and moving the family from one location to another. The Sioux could ride this horse as much as 100 miles a day if needed.
It's no wonder that The US Cavalry took months to catch Chief Sitting Bull. The horses are believed to be descendants of Sitting Bulls War Ponies. Right now there are less than 2000 in existence in the world.
