Title Doc and the Horse Traders
Description DOC AND THE HORSE TRADERS Halbert S. Greaves Salt Lake City, Utah Professional Division First Place Anecdote old skate-with personality. A small reddish-bay riding pony, he Father owned, whether trotting or loping. He was often ornery with teen-agers: He could elude me for half-an-hour when I Cried to a dog hoping to be scratched behind the ears. With children he was patient and gentle; they could us Ik behind him, between his front legs, or under his belly wiLhuut fear. Talk about smart! IE a gate was locked with wire looped over the gate-post and a stationary post. Doc could lift it up and get out; if it was locked with a two-by-four that slid into a slot, he could unslide it. In winter, we used him only to ride to our feed-yard about two Father told out hired man he could keep Doc at his home and ride him to our feed-yard to feed the livestock. But during the fall he sold Doc to travelling horsetraders. We were angry to think he had treated our pet so cavalierly. We would never see him again! How wrong we were! Shortly before Christmas my next-older brother came and there he uas--vith harness marks showing on his chest and sides. He had been put to work pulling something, become "fed up" with such Indignity, escaped and walked home. From where? Me didn't know-but the horse traders were from Hevada. He pampered him until he died of old age. JU
