Rufus the Outlaw
By Senator F. W. Gershaw
‘This is an outline of Colonel Steele’s story about one of the finest looking horses that ever served in the North West Mounted Police Force. Seventeen hands high he stood, and in every way he was a Goliath among the broncs on the Western plains. Because none could ride him he was called “Rufus the Outlaw.”
The veterinary who bought him thought he would make a beautiful charger for the Superintendent. The man who sold him said, “I give you fair warning. That beast is a devil from the pit. If he turns out to be no good don’t blame me.”‘
