Dennis Matthews' Memories

Stewart Horses

During the winter in the 1930's in Humboldt, MN, the Stewartkids (probably Hilson or Donald) would hitch one of their horses up to kindof a flat bed sleigh or platform and pull it around town. Some kids wouldride on it and others would have long ropes tied behind to ride on theirsleds.

Speaking of Stewart horses in the 1930's, one of them wasa "mustang" which really impressed me. What a fine fast spiritedhorse that was! They used to tie horses up to the hitching posts or ringsin front of the stores. /FONT>
