Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 3 IETHERIDGE HERALD Tuesday, July 25, 1972- POT-LUCK Stron ski appaloosa winner By D'ARCY RICKARD My friends are mostly country people. They never visit me in town. They say they can't find my place. That's a laugh. They say they can't figure out the streets. Ha, that's a joke. You know something? I have a heck of a time finding my way around the country. Always have. The city? Heck, the city's easy. Lots of signs around, you can't gel lost. "Where's the Old Elm Hutterite I says to this geezer in the Magrath Trading Co. "South of Bradshaw." "Where's "Just west of Ririe's sheep pen." To the people in the country, it's easy. They know their way around. For me, finding a particular farm is like looking for a paper clip in a grain elevator. "A mile east and a mile the directions come, and I always end up in Hardieville. Earl Tomlinson never visits me. 'Hell, I couldn't find your house if I had a police he says, milking his cow with one hand and scratching his head with the other. "Nothin' to I says. "There's a street sign on every comer." Do you ever see a sign out in the country? Heav- ens to Betsy, they find their way around the country by looking at rocks, and posts, and sheep sheds, and old dead trees, and old outhouses shot full of holes. You never see a plain old sign in the country. They tell you to go past the cemetery, over the creek, around the bend and over the tracks. And they expect you to get there on time, too. I mean, it's heart-breaking. One time I had to take a couple of work horses from Birdseye Ranch down to Evans Bradshaw's place at Caldwell. I was directed to ride across the Church Ranch and to just keep riding, and to ride for two three hours, or days, till T saw a bridge over the Belly River "and the rest will be easy." How in heck I ever found the place I'll never know. I mean, for a guy that can't get from section 25 to section 20, finding your way across the Church Ranch is a bewildering experience. Show me the way to go home as the crow flew. Five hi'ccds of horses shared the spotlight during the second day of the Lethbridge and Dis- trict Light Horse Show at the Exliibition Grounds. Connie Stronski of Clares- holm, aboard Iron Cap, took the high point appaloosa trophy.
