The horse is what brought Robert to Eugene Taffler. Robert was corralling mustangs when he came across Taffler, who had returned and reenlisted in the war. The horse was often used in the novel as a means of transportation and companionship. When Robert finds a mare while attempting to free a group of doomed military horses, this horse is notably described as black. This refers to the Book of Revelation, in which St. John the Divine describes a vision of a black horse whose rider is holding balances.The coyote represents the relationship between man and beast. It can mean friendship, companionship, and loyalty towards Robert. The coyote willingly ran with Robert.
