Nothing represents an image of the West like a cowboy on a bucking horse.   Throughout history there have been many poems and songs written about famous bucking horses.  Several hard to ride horses have been referred to as sun-fishers.  The term refers to a horse whose front is going one direction, his hind quarters the opposite direction and his belly up towards the sun.    Hence comes the famous title, “Sunfishin’ Son of a Gun”.
