"Of all the animals the horse is the best friend of the Indians, for without it he could not go on long journeys.

 A horse is the Indians' most valuable piece of property.  

If an Indian wishes to gain something he promises that if the horse will help him he will paint it with native dye, that all may see that help has come to him through the aid of his horse."
