The horse was photographed in a field located north of Justice Hall (built 1920), which is visible in the background.
The description provided for the original photograph incorrectly identifies this horse as "Old Bob," the beloved horse of B. B. Dougherty. However, the image is of a young horse, likely taken circa late 1930s-early 1940s. "Old Bob" died in 1928.
