Edward (Ned) Voss rode in point-to-points (his last ride came at age 64 in 1957) and campaigned steeplechase horses like *Golpista, Flying Artist and *Atamisqui with trainer Burley Cocks. Atlanta Hall was also home to Belgian draft horses and purebred Angus cattle.

Edward Voss was also an artist, working in watercolors and oils—a talent that bloomed in his generation. His sister Jessie and brothers Stuart and Neilson were also accomplished artists.

Another brother Frank took the family skill to new heights, and became known as perhaps the greatest American equine artist in history, and one of the top five in the world. He painted Man o’ War, Citation and countless other greats. His paintings are part of the most prestigious collections in the world. A bachelor, Frank Voss studied in New York, was a friend of famed English artist Sir Alfred Munnings and traveled often while commissioned to paint the era’s Thoroughbred stars.
