Horse Returns to His Birthplace
Marvin O’Brien, who resides south of Valley View, owns a saddle horse that has a remarkable “memory” – if horses have such things.
Some 14 years ago, the horse owned by Mr. O’Brien, was born in a pasture now known as the Hub Huey pasture, in the Union Grove community. At the age of three years, the horse was broken to ride, by G. S. Morrow, who still lives in the community.
Mr. O’Brien purchased the horse some five years ago,
presumably after it had been away from its birthplace since the age of
three. O’Brien, at the time lived on
part of what is now
A few days ago, his saddle horse strayed away, wearing saddle and bridle. O’Brien began tracing it, in an automobile. The trail ended finally at the Hub Huey pasture, some 12 miles distant, where the horse had been born. Mr. Morrow had recognized the animal and put it in the enclosure for safekeeping until its owner arrived.
