He drove a truck with the horse inside from Saskatchewan to Manitoba and on through North Dakota, Wiscon sin, Michigan and Ohio. Nowa days he does even betteti. when he goes out of town. It's by Jet plan with others , handling the transportation of Die horses. Baldwin is now one of the a anetocrata of a game once designed for rubes and hay-seeds. But the rubes are loaded with dough these daya. They set fantastic amount and purse are high;.
