Old Choppo, twenty-nine-year-old horse owned by Eual Harris of the U. S. Air Force, still has plenty of power for traveling. Holding the horse is Eual's father, I. F. Harris of Francis. His once lively gait is slowing some, toned down by the crowd- ing years and many long moons of pacing. At times he stands with a hip-shot stance, his flanks drawn in and a faint age-growth of wrinkles showing against his toughened hide. But he isn't quite finished yet. Not him. He is old, no doubt of it, but his dark-bay coat is richening eome with the rising of new spring grass, and his eyes hold a sharp perception. And he isn't lonely. Almost any day in the week he's likely to have com- passel of neighborhood kids. His name is "Choppo." He is I a twenty-nine year old horse be longing to Segeant Eual L. Hai- ris of the U. S. Army Air Force Horse and owner, Sergeant Har- ris' father says, are about the same age. "Choppo" is now in a pasture on the I. F. Harris farm one mile east of Francis, where the Harris family has resided since 1917. Mr. Harris purchased tho horse for his son when "Choppo1 was only 8-years-old. Boy and horse knew a long-time associa-, tion until young Harris entered the Air Force nine years ago. j Sargeant Harris is now with a medical student squadron at Gunter Air Force Base, Alabama. He is married and has three boys aged six, five and two. One boy was born in Germany, one in Texas and the other at Tinker Air Base, Oklahoma City.
