Synopsis

Straight Arrow is bound by rawhide thongs to four stakes in the desert sand.

Notes

The horses of Meagher are extremely elegant. The inking makes them appear shiny with the few inklines, or heavy clean blacks on muscles. The muscles of people are also visible through the shirts, and that is a special clue to Meagher. Art ID by Steinar Ådland December 2010
