Bronc Busters
Perform Every Sunday af
ternoon at Fletcher
Greeted by a crowd which roared
approval, the Half Circle B Ranch
cowboys wrestled with a string of
unruly broncs and bawling steers
at the home ranch spectacle of
cowboy games last week, near
Fletcher. The event attracted close
to 1,000 people, who parked their
cars around the corral fence and
laughed and cheered at the buck-
aroos' antics. It was held under
the supervision of "California
Frank" Col. C. F. Hafley famous
old-time frontiersman and top-hand.
As predicted, the western horses
and cattle which participated in
this thrilling display measured up
to their reputations as bad actors.
Many a tough puncher bit the
dust in his efforts to tame these
grizzled immigrants from the west
ern ranges.
The Half Circle B Ranch, which
is the only one of its kind in the;
eastern United States, is putting
on these cowboy sports and races
every Sunday afternoon and July
4th at 3 o'clock. The ranch is
located three miles north of Fletch
er and six miles south of Fairview
on the Cane Creek road.
