He works a three- month year for his master, Rufino Camello, then rests. Beans Take IVice Footwork; at 24, Old Tom Still Has It By CHARLES RIDGWAY Around the Torrance area, Tommy Gray, at 24, Is the undisputed dean of the horsey set. ' A solemn thinker with an unruly shock of gray hair falling over his broad brow, Tommy is obviously an In' icllectual but one who Is loaded with horse sense. ' He works only about three months a year and uses the remainder for deep thought In the loves. great outdoors he Tommy says little except to snort occasionally over the general state of affairs which has practically eliminated his profession.' Like any true artist, he resents the invasion of the machine in his work and kicks about It every chance he gets. · » · · :· HIS ONLY failing, really, is his uncontrolled appetite. He cats more than six tons of food--5250 worth -- e v e r y year. · "But," says his employer, Hufino Camello, of 21126 Grace St., Torrance, "he's worth every pound of it." Camello admits that Tommy lias a pretty hard, narrow row :to hoe during the working season, but even machines can't case the burden. · Tractors may be all right for cabbage and celery weeding, but only a horse can do the cultivating job on tucky Wonder beans, so Tommy gets the call. ; The old gray gelding Is one of the few workhorses still in use In this area. . Camello and Tommy have worked together for 15 years without an argument. . · · · · · "I GUESS Tommy is just about the oldest h o r s e ·round," Camello says. "But he never misses a day's work When we need him. The only thing he's touchy about is his feet. We never try to put "shoes on him anymore." :. Camello farms 21 acres of vegetable growing land west of Avalon Boulevard along .he south side of the San 3iego Freeway which is now under construction. Because Camcllo's land is in one of the low lying areas which floods easily. Tommy comes in handy during the rainy season. He can get intb the fields with a plow long before Camcllo's little tractor can be used. Tommy's big, knobby knees and his shaggy coat become loaded with mud balls during' xvet weather, but he keeps, right'on going. "A peddler tried to buy him from me a few years ago," Camello recalls, "but I turned him down. When we need; Tommy, we need him bad.j Those bean rows are too nai row for a tractor." "He's a real artist when comes to placing his old hool neatly between the rows. "Besides," says the farmc "we've had Tommy so Ion now, he's a part of the fam ily."
