One summer I bought a lot of art supplies in preparation for doing paint parties.  My 11 year old granddaughter let me practice with her, so we painted horses together. It was so much fun.


The mane of the horse reminded me of the manes of horses and soldiers helmets during the Roman Era, so that is how I came up with that name.


Horses have been used in the military all through history. The horse is mentioned many times in the Bible. The book of Revelations mentions a pale horse, red horse, speckled horse, black horse,  and white horse.


Rev. 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
