What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

Melissa @ Breath of Life

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


Oh, I don't know about that...seems to me I recall someone wearing a Pink Cowboy hat recently...

Carrie @ Blessed Chaos

I like Denver and Colorado!

or how about Icicle and Snowflake haha

stay cool!

Holly @ Crownlaiddown

How about the Indian's name is Buck and the horse's name is Wilbur.

AH! I just read Rachel's comment--totally didn't see it before, really!


Hot and Hotter.



The donkey needs to be Lucero...for SURE. The 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.......


........ or Chief John Big Tree.
