Newspaper Clippings for
May, 1902

from Antioch News1 May 1902
(advertisement) Attention, Farmers!
Breed to the best for the season of 1902, the prize winning and prize producing Clydesdale stallion, Sir David, No (8929).
Sire, Barney 5002, he by the Darnley horse, Good Hope, 1679. Dam, Lady Graham 2240, by Pride of Glasgow 239. Grand dam, Topsy 117, by Wallace 1552, etc. Sir David's dam, Starlight 4842. Grand dam Lady's Maid 2569.
The individual excellencies of this horse, those qualities which go to make up the perfect draft horse have but to be seen to be appreciated. He is a beautiful seal brown with narrow stripe on face. His aristocratic carriage, having a well-shaped breeding like head coupled to a beautifully arched neck, with stylish action, give him a commanding appearance. With an excellent middle, two good ends and strongly muscled all over, and set on legs the best, so strongly characteristic of the breed which, particularly on account of the foreign demand - the back-bone of the market today - and because as a breeder their individual excellencies are now becoming better known than ever, make them the foremost and without a shadow of doubt the most profitable horse for the farmer to breed today. The superiority of the Clydesdale cross over all draft breeds has been fully demonstrated at all the leading exhibitions of the country and never more emphatically than International Exhibitions held at Chicago in 1900, and 1901, where in draft classes for geldings and mares for single all the way through up to six-horse teams, the Clydesdale took first and second premium, leaving only third to Percherons.
TERMS - To insure a live colt $15. Parties disposing of mares before foaling, held responsible for service fee.
For particulars address, W. G. THOM, Millburn, Ill.
