    Jinglebob's New Colt

    The phone just rang and Jinglebob told me they just had a new colt drop at their house. Actually it's a grand-baby colt. 19 inches and 6 lbs. 12 oz. Augustin Chance Dennis is what the papers will read but they'll call him Gus for short. Sounds like he's already stood up and sucked and...
