This is one of the horse dance sticks shown in the exhibit.
You can see a few others as well at the online exhibit of A Song for the Horse Nation.
When I went back home I wanted to make a horse stick of my horse Windsong (Winnie) who had passed away. It was hard for me emotionally and physically and I didn't get too far.
For my birthday this year, my dad made me a mule stick in the likeness of our mule Livee.
Here it is:
It is a beautiful work of folk art and it is so special and meaningful to me.
Thanks so much Poppa.
