Crossing the Big Sandy

by Bonnie Marris

Texas longhorn cattle were almost extinct by the 1920s since modern day ranchers preferred a breed that could fatten up quickly and they no longer valued the longhorn’s ability to survive in high heat on little water, but lots of cactus, weeds and brush. Beginning in the 1930s, they were protected and bred in small stocks, mostly out of the idea of the romance of the Old West but later longhorns became popular for their lean, lower-cholesterol meat. Commercial ranchers now breed them with other cattle for their many strong traits including smarts and easy calving. Artist Bonnie Marris had the opportunity to drive these cattle across the river. “They are so wild, as in undomesticated,” she said. “When you stand 20 feet away from one you feel like you are peering back into history, seeing what cattle were like before we got our hands on them.” They’re beautiful, intelligent and lean. Sounds like a breed apart.

Pawnee

by Bonnie Marris

Pawnee is a portrait of the artist’s horse as a young’un. The American Paint Horse is a uniquely American breed, developed in the United States by a mix of wild mustangs and Quarter Horses. Trustworthy, agreeable, athletic and generally level-headed, they have a good cow sense and are well-suited to working farms. Everything about the portrait of this particular Paint says it’s unique. Each sinewy muscle is visible, with ears alert as the light shafts from above. She has some growing to do and she’s going to be even more beautiful. If you believe in reincarnation, you could do a lot worse than being a beloved horse of this artist in your next life.
