From the Archive: Saddle up!

by Lesley Drayton, Curator, Fort Collins Local History Archive

Last week, Linda Moore, the Curator of Collections at the Fort Collins Museum & Discovery Science Center, showed me a group of postcards that had been donated a while back to the Museum. We’re working on getting them all scanned in and added to the History Connection database, but in the meantime, check out one of my favorites from the collection:

Snow horse postcard from Rugh Ranch in Eggers, Colorado

Looks like a real horse, doesn’t it? If you read the fine print, though, you’ll find that it’s actually an incredible snow sculpture! I believe it’s even branded over its front leg. Those folks at the Rugh Ranch in Eggers were very serious about snow.
