To Horse Breeders
The most profitable horse for the average farmer to raise is the draft horse, and the best draft horse in the world is the Clydesdale having for the last three years met and defeated all other draft breeds at the greatest of all shows, The International, held at Chicago.
Why not breed to the best for the season of 1903? The prize-winning and prize-producing Clydesdale Stallion, SIR DAVID, 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 excellence 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 musceled all over, and set on legs the best, so strongly charistic 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 excellences are now becoming better known than ever, make them the foremost and without a shadow of doubt the most profitable for the farmer to breed today.
Terms--To insure a live foal, $15. Parties disposing of mares before foaling will be held responsible for service fee, which will then become due. For Further particulars address,
WM. THOM, Millburn, Ill.
