Appaloosa Foal


This portrait of a young Appaloosa taking a look at me with the body of its mother
providing a background illustrating how the breed is known with the random
splotches of white against brown. The color pattern is just beginning to be seen
on the foal’s withers and the blaze on its face and around its muzzle. The Appaloosa breed was developed by the Nez Perce native Americans who
inhabited the country of eastern Washington, Idaho, and Oregon.

My interest in the Appaloosa was spurred on by wanting to write and photograph
a story for National Geographic about the plight of Chief Joseph and his band of
Nez Pierce who had a brief but tragic war with the U.S. government in 1977. My
story was published as “Chief Joseph” in the March 1977 issue. In it I tell the tale
of the 115-day ordeal of the approximately 250 Nez Perce warriors trying to protect some 500 women and children as they fled in a 1,700 mile desperate attempt to reach Canada and acceptance. Hard pursued by several U.S. generals and their troops, it all came to an end in some low hills in northern Montana called the Bears Paw mountains, less than 50 miles from the Canada border.
