Happened to be driving up Highway 61, between Lake McConaughey and Arthur yesterday, and some of Haythorn's mares and colts were loafing right along the highway. Of course, I pulled over and took some pictures.

I watched a horse sell on Superior yesterday in a production sale, for 17,100. He was a finished bridle horse, and a gelding to boot. Not shabby, but I thought there were lots of buys on some of the other horses.

I saw that horse sell, too, Jake. He was pretty plain looking, but really broke. I wonder if the people that bought him might have ridden him first. Would be interesting to know.

What did the nice bay gelding that sold early on, bring? I missed the first part of the sale. Sure were two nice two-year old roan fillies that brought $4000. The young man showing them was really, really good~in my opinion anyway. I sure liked the way he stopped them. They just kind of quit going foreward. Nothing hard, or jerky. Just a nice, use-your-backend kind of a stop.

FH, lot #6 brought 4200 I think. He didn't handle quite as well as I would have liked to see him, but I could see that he would still make a very good horse.

Martin Black is the man that had a lot of the young broke horses in the sale. He is a tremendous horseman, do a search on him. He does clinics all over, and he has been cowboss on one of the biggest ranches in America. He had a 15 year old mare that was in the sale that he no saled at 2700 I think. It handled better than almost any horse I have ever seen. I think mare or not, that would be as good of a horse as you could throw your leg over. I was VERY impressed. I bet he sold her out back after the sale. I would almost have bought a mare myself if I had known about her earlier.

Thanks for the info and the link, Jake.

I remember reading about him somewhere, probably in the Western Horseman. At the time, I wondered if he would be related to Rob Black, the good roper from Idaho. I would bet he is.

Rob Black spent some time in Ekalaka. We didn't live here then, but I have heard about him being there. I knew him from announcing Team Ropings in W. Montana. He was good with a horse, too.

There was a Rob Black at a roping when I was a kid. Some guys kidded him about being the Bearded Wonder, He was good.
