Dead Horse Springs

This painting depicts an area of country called Dead Horse Springs. Back when Ben was a young stockman working on Argyle Downs Station, he used to muster cattle around Dead Horse Springs. One day when rounding up bulls, Ben leaped off his horse to throw a bull. At precisely the wrong moment, the bull turned his head and gored Ben on the leg with its horn. Ben still has the scar today.
