David Stoecklein’s latest book of photographs celebrates the cowboy’s noble steed. The cowboy horse is a working partner, one with strength, stamina, speed and cow sense. These animals brave all kinds of weather-freezing snow, howling wind, blowing sand, blinding fog. In the heat of the day and the dark of the night these horses are cowboys’ loyal companions. The cowboy horse has evolved from the Spanish mustang and the mighty quarter horse to be one of the most sought-after types of horses in the world. A cowboy’s horse is gentle and smart, tough and dependable. Their willingness to work hard is unparalleled. Stoecklein’s compelling images convey the respect and admiration these majestic animals deserve.
