Olaf Wieghorst
A Collection of Cover Art
from Hoofs and Horns Magazine

  All American
July 1941

About the Cover: by Ethel A. (Ma) Hopkins
Editor of Hoofs and Horns Magazine

Again we proudly present a cover by Olaf Wieghorst, and as usual it is most timely and appropriate. At this time when we are all feeling intensely American, what would be more appropriate for the rodeo publication than an American cowboy carrying the colors?

The artist wrote: "I got to thinking about some subject which would symbolize real Americanism, and the result was a plain common-sense cowboy on an American bred horse, topped off with the good old Stars and Stripes."

More power to you Olaf Wieghorst! May your hand never loose it's cunning.

Note from Spidy Quality Publishing: I was lucky enough to stumble upon the original drawing for this cover and purchased it. The drawing is a large very detailed pencil sketch 20" x 16". On the back was a couple of stickers about Hoofs and Horns Magazine in Tucson, Arizona. This is how I learned about the cover art by Olaf. I have found 13 issues that have Olaf's art on the cover. I think that is all, but I would love to be corrected if anyone finds more.
