In the old days, cowboys would make a change of horses around noon time. This little thought about fact of cowboy life is what inspired Al to compose this painting.
Al Shelton painted this picture trying to get on the cover of Western Horseman magazine. There were so many artist submiting work that Al's painting could not be used for that. However, the editors used it to illustrate a story in the magazine. They printed the artwork in color too!
Al was happy about that.
