“This was painted in The Thorofare Wilderness Area in the Tetons in Frank Lassiter’s old campsite between Open Creek and Bridger Lake.
“This is the only painting of mine that depicts both of the horses I broke when we owned Castlerock Ranches between 1968 and 1971, when we moved to what is now Hidden Valley Ranch.
“I could ride or pack either horse, as each was well accustomed to the high country and being packed. My father ‘Chuck’ used to say, ‘A horse is useless if you can’t ride and pack ‘im. This holds true with me today.” ——M. C. Poulsen
