This painting is among Frank Mechau’s most admired works, its poignant beauty embracing threatening clouds, cowpokes galloping into town looking for a good time, a woman stepping by an elegantly adorned saloon into which she is glancing, her graceful figure balanced by that of a tethered horse. There is a high order of beauty present here, but Mechau was not sanctimonious. In response to such a comment, he would likely say, “Well, there are few things more beautiful than the rump of a horse” – or words to that effect. —The Mechau family
