The author, "B.P." possibly Barnet Phillips, wrote, "Mr. Remington's various sketches bring into notice the breaking of horses for pistol practice . . . . The fifth sketch shows a horse used to the business, moving at a swinging stride. The cock of the horse's ears indicates that the animal knows that a pistol is to go off, and he steadies his nerves for the explosion." | signed LLC: Remington | 20.00.jpg | Painting | ink wash | pen and ink | paper | Remington, Frederic
