Letters from Readers

 

 

June 2013 issue  

 

Dear RMR:

     I really like your February 2013 front cover! It reminds me of a cow-calf operation I ran in Montana for a few years. Even the building looks like the ones we had. Good picture!

     I’ve had draft horses all my life (I’m 84), and I’d like to see more stories about draft horse.

     Your magazine is good. Wish there were more of you people that have the horse at heart. Thanks. Yours truly,

—Dean Babcock, Milton-Freewater , OR

 

Dear RMR:

     I want to tell you “Thank You” for your magazine. I live in Pendleton , Oregon , and pick up your magazine from the Saddle Restaurant.

     I enjoy it very much.

—Allan Swygart

 

Dear RMR:

      We sure hope you had a great winter. We just returned home after 6 months on the road with our two horses. We left last October for Missouri , Oklahoma , Texas , Arizona , and California . The horses and we are pooped out and happy to be home and taking a break. While we were gone, we had our mail forwarded to us every couple of weeks. We always looked forward to the Rocky Mountain Rider and eagerly read every page!

      We just got the latest issue and were struck by the picture you had of the “Historic Photos — How Horses Won The West” [RMR April 2013, pg. 16]. It was a photo of two twenty-mule teams from Pinal, Arizona , in 1895.

      One of the horseback rides we did on our latest trip was along the route used by these very same freight wagons. As you can see from the photo, the wagons would be quite heavy when filled with ore. Over time the wagons cut wheel tracks into solid stone. Some of the tracks are up to 10 inches deep.  

 

      We just did this ride about a month ago. Then we got home and there was a photo in your magazine of the wagons that made the tracks. What a small world!

      Enclosed here are photos of the wagon wheel tracks cut in solid stone. We thought you might get a kick out of seeing them.

      Take care and we hope you have a great spring and summer.

Your friends,

—Kent & Charlene Krone
