Green and gold refer to the land and its riches, an allusion to Mr. Hackett’s work as a livestock farmer. The Percheron symbolizes the fact that Mr. Hackett grew up raising these horses. As a draft animal, it also represents the idea of hard work. The crows allude to the surname of Mr. Hackett’s partner, Kimberly Ann Crow. The horseshoe refers to Mr. Hackett’s work as a farrier.
The hawk is a bird of prey known for its vigilance and keen eyesight. The gavel refers to Mr. Hackett’s work as a livestock auctioneer.
