Made n Fine Showing.
G. E. Petty, who owns the West
View Stock Farm in the suburbs of
this city, and who has charge of the
fine thoroughbred coach horse "Doris
2043," owned by the Versailles Coach
Horse Co., made a great showing in
the show ring at the fair last week.
While the horse was not entered in
competition with others, Mr. Petty
held an individual colt show and the
horse was exhibited and admired by
the great crowds present. Seven of
his colts were also on exhibition cither
of which was a prize winner, and
no snow in tnc country couiU make a
more beautiful display from the stand
point of thoroughbred stock. Doris
is admitted by stockmen who saw him
to be one of the most perfect horses
in the country.
J. T. Merriott's colt took the blue
ribbon and Jack Beglcy's took second
in this show.
In the hog show Mr. Betty's fine
pens of Poland Chinas were by all
odds the best shown. He had cijibt
pens on exhibit, and raptured both
first and secoml premiums, yet there
were a number of other fine speci
mens on display. Mr. Petty has
taken great pains in building up the
standard of his famous herd of Poland
Chinas until at the present time they
would be hard to beat in any show,
as they are all perfect beauties and
advertise themselves. Mr. Petty de
serves the honor he received in his
splendid showing of fine stock.
