Jesse Bixby: She was a blocky fifteen-hand dark brown or black mare with white strip and one white hind foot, full of pluck and nerve. No better mare ever trod the green hills of Vermont. I have driven her for hundreds of miles, and followed her for days on the farm. I have known her to be taken up from the pasture and driven seventy miles in a day, and it did not take her all day to do it.
