About the Cover: by Ethel A.
Editor of Hoofs and Horns Magazine
The artist who made the cover for this issue hails from New York
City. Olaf Wieghorst made the dry point etching of which this
picture is a reproduction. Back in the '20s Mr. Wieghorst was
a member of the Border Patrol along the International Border
between the United States and Mexico. Later he cowboyed in New
Mexico, finally went East and is now a mounted policeman in Central
One of the prized possesssions of our office is another dry point
etching of the head of his horse that he rides in the park. Into
this picture the artist seems to have put all his love and understanding
of horses.That picture can fairly talk for it shows so much intelligence
and love and loyality between horse and master. Jack Kinney,
Boss of the Tucson Rodeo, said when he saw it, "If I had
a horse like that, I wouldn't care if I had any friends or not."
