Wooly Chaps

2007 / Frederic Remington / Ada

Wooly Chaps View 1

A bronze replica of a sculpture by Frederic Remington (1861 - 1901), known as one of the premier artists of the American West.

Wooly Chaps is a variation of Remington's famous Bronco Buster sculpture--the only difference being the "wooly" type of leggings worn by the cowboy in this variation. The sculpture depicts a mustachioed and floppy-hatted cowboy trying to ride a bucking horse.

This sculpture is part of the Remington Walk, a collection of 12 sculptures that line a section of the Green Monster walking path between Stadium View apartments and Dial-Roberson Stadium on Ohio Northern University's Campus.

The sculptures were cast by A & S Foundry in Sun Valley, CA and donated by James and Eilleen Dicke.
