Pets Are Poor Show Animals Expert Horseman Declares was If you want to have a good show animal, don't make a pet of It nor bribe it with sugar and apples. This is the advice of L. F. Rollins, export horseman of'.say, who has trained anil owned champion show fur .)i> years. He was here as the chief judge at the annual Frontier Days Association horse show. .Must famous of his own horses Daiigherty-Dare, who finally re- undefeated champion and wa.-, valued at f IS,009. Other famous animals that he hud trained were the five-galled April Showers and Notice Me.; and the three-gaiters, Roxy Highland, valued at $110,000, and I'euvine Dreum, and Marie Antoinette. Mr. Rollins has won in more than 125 classes and taken 324 first awards, which is pretty prize coing, even in horse language. Like Training Child Training a horse is like training a child, said the expert, who maintains that from the first a horse must know who is boss. He doesn't believe in beating u horse, but declares that persistence and patience win in the long run. "If a. man can get along with a horse, he'll make a good family man,'' said Mr. Rollins, who also believes that horses and women have a great deal in common. "They're both temperamental and need careful handling," said the expert, who reports that Airs. Rollins has always been interested in horses and has not objected to his interest In them. Mr. Rollins maintained the exclusive Brentwood Stables in Los Angeles for a number of years and during that time he became acquainted with many famous Hollywood personalities. Carole Lombard, Clark Gable, Marleno Deitrich and other notables stabled their mounts at his stables. He retired after selling his Los Angeles stables and returned to the field two years ago, becoming associated with the G. Harold Waddell Stables at Lindsay. Mr. Rollins exhibited horses many times throughout the state and in the west, and showed horses at the California State Fair as early as 1911. Rich Man's Sport Show horses are a rich man's sport and do not return heavily on investments, financially, but pay liuge dividends in sport and fun, Mr. Rollins reports. Jn order for a show horse to be good, it has to have a "Hollywood personality," Mr. Rollins analyzed. V horse may be good in many points. but unless it pricks up its ears and steps lively us a show horse, it lacks .sufficient "horseanallty" to take prizes in the big shows. Has to Be Smart A good show horse has to be smart, have good conformation and animation. Hardest horses to judge are always in the child's division, he maintains. A horse that is the family .pet is often apt to be too smart and act spoiled and refuse to perform when called upon. Best method is to feed the animals only at meal times and not to break their training. Mr. Rollins, a native of Missouri, camo to California in 1911 and used the knowledge he learned from his father in the training of horses. His father was a native of Kentucky and he say:; that one has to be born with a knowledge of horses. "It's not how much money you paid for a horse that counts, but how much horse you actually got for your money," he said in explaining why so many persons are disappointed at times when the final judging of horseflesh has been made by experts.
