W. R. Leigh isnÕt known for his watercolors, but Mustang shows that he knew his way round the medium. Standing in the purple shadeÑbut not far from the sunÑthe pinto is saddled and ready to go. But his reins hang limp and the footprints tell us that his rider has dismounted and walked off down the slope of the dune. The horseÕs head is turned, his eye is on the top of the ridge, the radar of his ears is tuned to the draw. HeÕs waiting patiently, but his right rear leg is getting itchy. How long has the rider been gone? WhatÕs going on down there? We donÕt know, and neither does Old Paint.
