Reprinted from the August 1952 issue of Canadian Cattlemen

By Doreen Runciman, High River, Alta.

‘While it is my intention in no way to take exception to the article, THE BLOOD IS NEEDED IN ALL LANDS, by Linore Wilson, Canadian Cattlemen, May 1952, for no one will dispute the quality and influence of the Arabian, at the same time there is a point included therein which suggests a difference of opinion, and in justice to a good horse, and as a matter of interest, a little discussion might be in order.’
