The construction of the Howard company's animals differed from all other makers in combining front body sections of cast zinc with molded three-dimensional copper rear bodies. This rare and unusual horse's flat rear body is instead made of sheet copper, which independent researcher Richard Miller has suggested may have been an early experiment by the firm, which was originally known as J. & C. Howard. A handful of oxen of this same construction are also known. The cast zinc fore body of this horse is the same as that of the so-called "Index Horse," a then-unidentified Howard vane illustrated for The Index of American Design in 1940.
