COWBOYS PLAY GAME WITH POTATOES (Sep, 1915)

COWBOYS PLAY GAME WITH POTATOES

AN odd game played with potatoes by horseback riders is a feature of the “Rodeo”, a gathering of cowboys in the Southwest. The potato race is played in this way: each one of two teams consists of four horseback riders, each man carrying a long stick with lance-like points.

COWBOY IS SCULPTOR (May, 1929)

COWBOY IS SCULPTOR

PERHAPS Charlie Beal made mud pies when he was a kid. At any rate, the erstwhile Glacier National park cowboy amuses himself and many tourists with his clay models of objects and people in the park.

The photo below shows him with his latest creation, “A Stage Coach En Route.” Every characteristic of both the coach and animals is modeled in minute detail. The team of six horses straining to get the heavy stage over the crest of a hill is one of his best.

A half-century ago, when New York City’s now-teeming Bronx was one big cow pasture, a young horse-fancier named Harry Abramowitz arrived from Minsk, Russia, with yearnings to raise bangtails in his adopted land. Today, Harry—now known as Hopalong Abramowitz—is still breeding horses right in the heart of a Bronx that has become one of the world’s most heavily-populated boroughs.
