I was there @ at least a few of these meetings - Buster Neggly's(sp) house in Hollister @ What he called "Stud Horse Alley" and later @ his Ranch in Gonzolas. Cal
Around the same time a What-to-be CCA Rodeo Clown's wife started the Pinto Horse Assoc. in San Jose.
To make money I'd go to the "Killers Yard" in Newark, Ca. N buy $75 - Nice Colored Horses and get Reregistered Pinto Horse Papers on them - Ride them for a few weeks and Sell them for $700 up
