Warrior is a Helen of Troy horse, Trojan in style with a roached mane. He's an American Creme draft horse perhaps, though he's packing a pistol.
Pulling the fire trucks, these horses were at war with tragedy. It is said that Looff's first factory was close to the fire station, where he would hear the clanging of the fire bells. They would go out and watch these lunging horses pulling the fire trucks to "fight the wars of fire".
Warrior is available as a limited edition miniature carousel reproduction (by Jerry Reinhardt) through the
Riverfront Park gift shop!
