Description

Beautiful gray and brown Nokota Horse, illustrated on a map of the western United States, has been printed on high-quality paper and sealed to a wooden Christmas ornament. The design has been printed on high-quality paper and adorns the front of this ornament. The opposite side has the name of the breed and some information about it. Both sides have been attached to the wooden ornament and sealed with two coats of sealer. Comes with a natural jute hanger and is ready to display for the holidays or all year round, because there’s no day that isn’t perfect for ponies!

My name is Liz and I love to illustrate animals on vintage maps that depict where the animal breed comes from. I started this series with horses, and have recently branched out to dog breeds as well. I am now also drawing some of my favorite creatures from mythology and folklore on maps as well. Horses are still my number one art passion, though, and I love to use my art to teach about the breeds of horses and their history and impact on our world.

The Nokota horse is a feral and semi-feral horse breed located in the badlands of southwestern North Dakota in the United States. The breed developed in the 19th century from foundation bloodstock consisting of ranch-bred horses produced from the horses of local Native Americans mixed with Spanish horses, Thoroughbreds, harness horses and related breeds. The Nokota was almost wiped out during the early 20th century when ranchers, in cooperation with state and federal agencies, worked together to reduce competition for livestock grazing. However, when Theodore Roosevelt National Park was created in the 1940s, a few bands were inadvertently trapped inside, and thus were preserved.

The original of this drawing was created by me on a vintage map using ink, colored pencil, and acrylic paints. The art on this ornament is a high-quality print of the original art. Both sides are sealed with at least two coats of acrylic sealer (that is rated for outdoors, but please don’t take a chance and hang your ornament out in the rain where it might get ruined!)
