New Mexico Art Tells its History


In 1598, Juan de Onate left Mexico to settle New Mexico with 846 goats, 198 oxen, 2,517 sheep, 316 horses, 41 mules, 53 hogs, 500 calves, and 799 cows, steers and bulls. In the intervening 400 years, ranching has grown to become one of the largest industries in the state.
