I have posted several photo's of my Family from Canada including my ncle training his minature horse for rodeo that he was a clown in all over Canada . They also raised and trained Llama's .minature goats and Bulls .They had a very interesting life . Walksoft was able to locate the old newspaper article about my Uncle and sent it to me :-)
Thank you David and Sherry !!!!!!! A treasure to me .

    Great Post Mani, True Family Treasure. Thanks to wailksoftly for making such a "Special" gift to a Dear friend . This is one of those things I enjoy hearing about.

    Kerry thank you . David had to track this old paper down but who know he would find it . My cousin showed him the one he had when they visited and David knew I would want a copy. I had many laughs with this Uncle when he came to visit he was a true character and passed away about the time the article came out . Great people on CW !!!!!

    Your welcome Mani, I agree there are some very special folks on here. And you're one of those!! :-)

    It was our pleasure Mani, we use to get this little insert to the Western Producer paper every week, so as soon as a saw the one Howard had I knew I had to find one.
    Looked online got an email address, that put me in touch with the archives librarian. Told her why I wanted it & it was in my mail in a few days.

    I wasn't expecting the kind words from others, but I should have known, that's what makes CW unique.

    Walksoft I would never had remembered this article had it not been for your trip and Howard showing it to you . Myself and my Sister love it . My sister lived with them as a young adult and helped round up the bulls they raised for rodeo's . Me I would have terrified of a brahma bull, but a nice little miniature horse and me would have been fine :-) Thank you from and my family !
