“Horses were bought to North America by the Spanish.  To the tribes of nomadic buffalo hunters who lived on the Great Plains, horses were truly miraculous.  This wonderful animal could not only carry and drag for heavier burdens than their dogs but could also carry a rider and run faster than anyone ever imagined.  The tribes call him by various names: Big Dog, Elk Dog, Mysterious Dog, Holy or Sacred Dog.  They tell factual accounts of the first horses they saw, but the story is told as well in ways which remind that Sacred Dogs were indeed given by the Great Spirit.”
