"This photo was incorrectly titled. John Bowling was my father, and the man aboard Buck Hancock in this photo was Rex Keith, the foreman of Triangle Ranch at that time. My father, John Bowling, was one of the first guys to start buying horses from the Triangle Ranch & the 6666's. I remember going with him when just a little girl, on horse buying trips. As I remember it, The Triangle Ranch warned that some of the Hancock horses were bad to buck, and some of the Grey Badger horses were hard to break. The 6666 Ranch also had the Hollywood horses. They used Buck Hancock on Hollywood and Badger mares. I remember Dad buying Easter King from them. Also Dad sold Hollywood Jack as a weanling." ~ Dorothy Ott, Reed Point, MT
