"I had heard from other cowboys that Sheep Morrow treated horses better than anybody else on the ranch. I tried to come up with something that would portray his kindness and the way he treated animals.
"He didn't think the horse would eat the apple, but he posed anyway. Sheep was pretty surprised when the horse took the apple. He liked the painting though, and I still hear from him"
