Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 121
Description "Yes, indeed," the bishop answered, "and in a few hours they came riding back to Kannarra on the worst ones we had, as quiet as you please. The Navajoes are wonderful horse-tamers." I asked whether their method was known. He replied, that they carried the horses out of the way to subdue them; but he had seen them rub a little of a red powder which they had with them, on a headstrong horse's nose, and bring it into instant sub- jection. They would not sell him any of this powder, nor tell him what it was. Then Roundhed was bidden to propose a speculation to the next band of Navajoes that came along. The "church herd" on one of the islands in the Salt Lake has multiplied fast, and there are now a large number of wild horses there.5g No one lives on the island, but a number of wolves dispute its supremacy with the horses; and the horses have battles with the wolves for life- the supplies of other food for the carnivora being scanty-until they have grown so fierce that no white man finds it pay to attempt taming them. The proposition to be made the Navajoes was, that they should tame the church herd on shares. They should receive one-half the horses for their pains: the Mormons to have first choice, however. Bishop Roundhed seemed to think the Navajoes would embrace the offer. He showed me seven fine blankets which he had received in exchange for one small mare. These Navajo blankets are said to be waterproof, and many of them are of beautifully-varied colors; red, white, blue and black 5gPerhaps as many as a thousand head of horses were running on Antelope Island in 1860. The subject of church horses on Antelope Island is discussed in Dale L. Morgan, Great Salt Lake (Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1947), pp. 252- 539 2559 3260 121
