The Medicine Hat Cowboy Poetry Foundation is pleased to release the March 2021 edition of the newsletter, Medicine Hat Cowboy Life.
This month we celebrate barns. Farm and ranch kids all have stories about playing and working in barns. President, Jen Zollner and our in-house videographer, Cheryl Dust recently toured the Medicine Hat area to take photos of local barns, which inspired us to feature barns in the March issue.
Did you know farmers could order a barn from the Eaton’s catalogue? Read about the history of the “original Amazon”.
Find the link to our latest Stories from Seniors, The Old Barn, featuring 93-year-old cowboy poet, Buddy Gale. Read the interview in the newsletter.
Learn about the legacy of Daniel Massey of Massey-Ferguson, name synonymous with farm equipment.
Our featured horse is the Curly, so named for its curly coat, mane and even eyelashes!
We’ve also added more information to our web site page ‘Round Medicine Hat featuring Chappice Lake.
Hope you enjoy our celebration of barns.
