This is our front door and it totally makes me laugh every time I walk up to it because IT IS SO NOT ME. But he's growing on me in a funny sort of way.

The horse should be Lightening. Which means the Indian must be Thunder Cloud.

The donkey needs to be Lucero...for SURE. The rider...hmmm...how about Pablo? Or Poncho? Or...Bob.

I was going to say Buck-o, but I like Hot and Hotter the best.

I think these guys are from a famous bronze by either Charles Russell or Fredric Remmington. I don't remember the name but think I saw it at the Amon Carter in Ft Worth years ago. I am not one into southwest art, but can appreciate the beauty of it. Since he is going to be the keeper of your sanctuary for the next year or so, he needs a noble name, because he has a noble duty.

Pancho and Lefty, OF COURSE!
Man, does this take me back to my childhood. Growing up on Willie Nelson, John Denver and Olivia Newton John. Sitting around the campfire listening to my dad sign Puff the Magic Dragon while playing his guitar.

End of the Trail sculpture
The End of the Trail sculpture was created as a tribute to the American Indian by James Earle Fraser (1876-1953) when he was only seventeen years old. His sculpture was twice the size of real life and gained world wide fame at the 1915 San Francisco Exposition. A Waupun industrialist, Clarence Shaler, commissioned the first bronze casting of the sculpture. Dedication of the casting was on June 23rd, 1929. The indian that modeled for the sculpture, Chief John Big Tree, was the honored guest at Waupun's 125th Jubilee celebration on July 1st thru 4th, 1964
I vote the Indian is Lewis and the horse Clark.......
