Grass will green and spring will come. Then, the poets say. a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love. Then loo mares in the pasture roll thei" eyes, take extra pains with their lipstick and mascara and mince up and down along the fence (or the benefit of the handsome stallion down the road. But, on the serious side, as spring comes horsemen turn their attention to the traditional breed- ing for mares. In the past two or three years there has been a sharp upswing in the quarterhorse husiness in these parts. A portion of this in- terest is explainable strictly on cury failed to climb above the freeiingmaTk. aPProachln9 the two week mark when the mer- [WEEKLY Photos) Henderson Just Loves lovegmss Seen any green grass lately? Don't laugh. Maybe you just haven't been looking in the right direction. Paul Henderson, ASC fieldman, reeled an experimental acre of weeping lovegrass on his place in the Egypt community last June. And last week he noticed something about it. It was dead and dry on top. right enough; but down below, close to the ground, he found three to eight inches of green. In the last week of February yet! With snow on the gound! "It made me start tc says Henderson, with commend- able restraint. What he thought about w a s what would happen if he showed a cow some green grass in mid- winter. What he thought about was the age-long dream of the Oklahoma cattleman a year- round permanent pasture pro- gram. W i t h o u t going out on any limbs. Henderson feels that this (Continued on Page 2) the level of economics. Horses1 have gotten to be pretty expen sive things. The East Central Quarterhorse j Association should also get some of the credit. They have brought together local quarterhorse men in a working unit. Their show is accredited with the association. The sale, held in conection with the show, promises to grow in importance. The association has: brought an air of pulling togeth- er and interest to a relatively disorganized scene. i And, breeders in this county can be just proud of the quality of horseflesh found here. Some top flight brood mares are owned and hi used in this r.iunly. wise some really fine stallions are also standing at service here.; In fact, with the exception of Carter County, it is likely that, more stallions are now avail-! able in this county than in any other county in this section o'f the state. A WEEKLY reporter ran a quick check recently and produc- ed an interesting list of local i studs. It was impossible to get a complete list, ascertain for cer- tan or not whether all the animals are under permanent registration, j if they are standing at public; service and if so, what is the 'charge. But. for horse breeders! and fanciers, this listing should, ;have more than passing interest. Dale McDonald has a good stud near Allen. Jed Rowe also has a stallion in Allen, i Vincent Dailey, just across the .line, at Tupelo has two stallions. a Dead Reckoning stud, and Mid- night Jr., a horse with Joe Reed breeding. 1 Rod Edwards, near Jesse, -has a stud with Silver King Breeding Dub Scott has a sorrel stallion of King Ranch breeding at his place in Union Valley. Harold Davis has his fine stud. Bray's Joe San. standing at serv- ice at his Ranch west of Roff. Orville Maxey has a good stal- lion, Bolo English. I Leo Robbins. at Latta, has his outstanding young stallion stal- lion. Jud Hancock, at service. Marvin Barnes also has a stud at his place near Pickett. The horse is reportedly of Leo breed- ing. Pete Winters has a well-known stallion. Sorrel Lobo. Dr. Leon Self and Lee West have a stallion at service with King-234 and King Ranch breed- ing. The Mintons still have their well' known Chico stallion. George Human reportedly has two stallions at Byng. Oris Roberts has a stud inf service near Oil Center. Dr. R. E. Cowling has a stud standing at service in Ada. i Sheriff Oren Phillips has two I stallions available for service at his place in Homer. j This may not be a complete list but it, at least, gives an in- dication of the number of stal- lions located in the county and shows how well they are spread throughout the area. felf urlfnH in ?h h I, BralV s bi9 Charolaise bull, Seguro, with Braly him- lasebuM ofthl R 1, I 9T" is 50n of Senor' famous ,J i 'me- Braly hes refused an offer of more than for the ammal- (NEWS Staff Photo by W.

I And he has a request from land, South Africa, for an animal now on performance test at Mur- ray College. Also, he says he averages five letters a week from people who i want heifers with any percentage of Charolaise blood. (But he's price.) Braly figures his Charolaise operation now ranks among the top eight in the nation in and like most other breeders he won't voluntarily take a back seat to anybody in the matter of quality and breeding. Yet he admits that he backed into the whole deal by accident. Seems it started when Braly. in his travels around the country, saw some Midland bermuda here and there and found out what a bermuda and legume mixture could do in bringing poor land back into profitable production. Always on the lookout for an extra buck. Braly thought: There's plenty of poor land in my own country around Ada. Why not buy some of that, im- prove it with bermuda, and sell it again at a profit? He jumped into the project en- thusiastically and soon found himselt the owner of a couple of thousand acres, growing grass like crazy. Well, there was all that grass: and the only logical thing to do with it was to put some cattle on it and pick up some extra profit by the way. Braly commissioned a man to buy up a bunch of grade Here- fords for him to turn that grass into beef. In the course of con- versation, Braly goes on, he re- "What I'd really like to have would be some of those big white cattle I saw over in France." (Continued on Page 4) A ALLEN By MRS.
