Lovely! Reminds me of Bill and Champ from my past. Good to see harness rendered accurately too. One of my pet peeves since childhood comics is "artists" who are unfamiliar with saddles and harness and draw them anyway with no model!

thanks Kathi...

I am impressed with the power of these animals. It reminds me I need once more to get up to Klondike days in Eagle River this February. Period actors...outdoor camps, Native American, French and British trappers, soldiering...and how pioneers carved living out of a wilderness. Which without such wonderful powerful horses such as these would not have happened. When I see them...I am in awe.
