Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, MAY Originally A Thoroughbred RANCHERS FANCY GOLDEN PALOMINO THE HERALD'S CITY NEWS PAGE FAGS 8BTM Ditches Cleared Palomino, golden hone of the golden west, has captured the fancv of ranchers of the foothills province of the cold book of has a strike against them. The Palomino, which boasts a golden cost and silver inane, was originally thoroughbred. The type was crossed with the cream- colored "buckskin mare" of the In- dians, the progeny having a dis- tinctive golden tinge. Alberta has possibly a doaen of the Palomino stallions, agricultural authorities sayl but> not being purebred, they yare not recognized as breeding stock eligible foe registration under the federal stal- lion enrolment act. The reason is that whatever the attractions of the type, they do not breed true to color. For ex- ample, a gangly-legged colt sired bv a chestnut, stallion bred to a Palomino mare probably would not be of pure color and hence would be ineligible for enrolment among; the equine 400 as a purebred and hence -recognized as of standard breeding stock. Stock Books The states of Colorado and Tex- as have -Palomino stock books of their. own, but evec these states, which contain horse fanciers aplenty, Co not recognize use other's breed. These considerations matter little, however, to those Alberta horsemen who nave turned to raising Palo- minos. Regardless of lineage, they sav, the Palomino is a beautiful and intelligent animal of even temper, capable of turning with equanimity from the show ring to the bridle path or the work of roping calves. Enthusiasts, regardless of federal government, regulations, say they have developed bndle path, cow- corse and rancher types which can hold "their heads up- with the haughtv thoroughbred. One "of the keenest raisers of Palominos in Alberta is Jerry Puckett. who on his Chinook ranch near Calgary has what he considers an outstanding sire in Bright Star, imported from Sterling City. and bred to thoroughbred mares. Bright offspring bear such names as Chinook Golden Girl and Starlight, and Mr. Puckett says they have many attributes the heart and equable temperament of their sire coupled the speed and stamina of their thoroughbred dams.
