Title American Remount Association
Description exclaimed, "Lord, he's gorgeous." That became a famiiy by-line. When anything was special or most beautiful, we remarked, "Lord, it's gorgeous." That said it all. That was the ultimate. When the Remount Association disbanded, Paul bought Heuvelton in November 1949. Now he was his property. He didn't have to return him to the government. During World War II, Paul Smith had three stars in his front window, one for his son Alan Paul Smith, U.S. Navy, and one each for two horses that served in the Cavalry. He raised them and trained them, and sold them to the War Department. One was called Twenty Grand and the other one was Bingo. Twenty Grand went to Nebraska from Manti and became an officer's mount. They were both "gentle broke" according lo specifications. For several years Paul knew the whereabouts of Twenty Grand. He was much loved by his officer/owner, and died at an old age for a horse. Stars for horses? Why not? They served their country well. And horses were so much a part of the Smith kids' lives. 1. Introductory Information found in the Salt Lake Tribune.
