This horse may seem the product of an artist's fancy, but he was an actual horse, a stallion of Printer, Clydesdale, and French or Percheron blood. According to the previous owner of the painting, the horse was owned by Martin E. Williams, a veterinarian in Chatham, New York, and had a mane that was 14 feet long and a tail that was 12 feet long. The horse was shown at fairs and other events from about 1875 to 1900. With his silvery tresses carefully arranged, the horse created a sensation among people visiting the shows.
