He mentions that Wilfred Blunt is also of the opinion that the native American horse may have lived to Columbian times. At present he is looking for mixed blood in the skulls of American horses. He points out that the old horses of Europe also had large heads. He also adds that he has found a copy of an aboriginal pictograph representing a man on a horse.
