My Newest Longhorn Sculpture

Leading the Way- Old Blue
11 x 5 x 8
bronze on granite
     I just picked my newest bronze sculpture up from the foundry yesterday. It is a longhorn representing Old Blue, a longhorn steer belonging to Colonel Charles Goodnight. Old Blue wore a bell around his neck and lead Goodnight's herds 8 times north on the Chisholm Trail. He was something of a pet and lived to be 20 years old. When Old Blue died, Goodnight mounted the horns in his office.
     I will have this and many other sculptures at David Dike Fine Art where I will be doing a sculpture demonstration on April 21st, 2:00 to 8:00. The address is2613 Fairmount Street, Dallas, TX. 75201.
