Trail of Painted Ponies "The Guardian" Figurine. 1E/0,555.
Pony Story: "Of all the animals, the horse is the best friend of the Indian, for without it he could not go on long journeys. A horse is the Indian's most valuable piece of property. If an Indian wishes to gain something, he promises his horse that if the horse will help him he will paint it with native dyes, so that all may see that help and protection have come to him through the aid of his horse."
