Photo Details

Erwin E. Smith on a bronco rising on its hind legs while Erwin raises his right hand. They're on the open range. The photo is titled "a sun-fisher, Diamond Bar Ranch." I wonder if "sun-fisher" was slang for a rearing horse because he was rising towards the sun? The rider was a photographer who chronicled cowboy life in Texas in the early 1900's.
