The Trail of Painted Ponies "Lightning Bolt Colt" 5E/#4,711
Pony Story: In Lakota Sioux mythology, the horse is a Thunder Being, who brings storms to Mother Earth. With storms come rain and change. With this in mind, Choctaw artist Dyanne Strongbow imagined a thunderstorm centered in the horse's hindquarters, breaking up as it moved toward his head into the sunny skies of a new day.
