His sporty western Stetson hat and his Justin boots are his earmarks of dignity. bred to the saddle a no still vigorously rides the range "twelve and fourteen hours a day- He started riding horses when a mere child of six and now when wotied town foIks workin' cattle is the best part of my life. I guess I'll die with my boots on." Then he mounts his horse and is off His horse is his true companion and as much a part as his own family. His saddlery was always the best he could to ^et the extra di t of fa ncy tooling around the s hi ny horn * 50 next to the horse and under the saddle. George was born to pioneer parents, June 28, 1882, in Ephraim, Utah, Sanpete County. It was a small farming community where people believed it was better to "wear out" than to "rust out". George was no exception and being the eldest fat n e r ^ he helped his mother rear and raise trie children. He stock men all over the country. He is still called upon to brand, dehorn and round up cattle for his friends and sc - Quaintsnces. He never turns anyone away snd performs nis task without monetary compensation saying, "Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else." -90-
