PRIMARY SCHOOL -- As a yearling the Smyths begin to introduce the horse to the confinement of a stall, groom and lead twice daffy and begin a forced-exercise routine of loungeing in a round pen. At this point the horse gets "quieted down" and accustomed to constant handling. Smyth said he also determines "what to sell and what to keep" at this stage of the animal's training. , SHOW FIT -- After its primary training, Smyth then begins in- traducing his show prospect to a trailer and hauling it to shows within 100 miles of home to get the equine used to noise, crowds, "hot dog wrappers and kids screaming." , SADDLE BREAKING -- At the ripe age of about 18 months, Smyth ex- plained, the delicate bone structure of a horse's legs are ready to withstand the weight and stress of a rider. Once Smyth "gets the buck out of 'era," he sends the show prospect off to his trainer and rider for formal show schooling. Smyth said the most difficult part of winning an AQHA crown is garnering the 15 conformation points in halter competition. For every five com- petitors a show horse places in front of it is awarded one point. The 20 performance points must be won in a combination of the 21 per- formance classes sanctioned by the AQHA. The Trinidad horseman noted only one out of every thousand registered quarter horses stands a chance of being designated a champion. To emphasize his point he explained that of the ap- proximately 248,000 horses currently competing on the AQHA circuit, only about 55 will receive the coveted crown of a champion this year. Even then, Smyth said, it may have taken that horse I0 or 12 years on the circuit to accomplish the achievement. Smyth was sales manager of this year's Athens Horse Sale held at the Henderson County Fairgrounds last June. The sale, which will be an annual event Smyth said, grossed more than $112,000 with an average sales price of $1,500 for the 96 horses sold. The 1984 sale will once again be held during the first weekend in June at the fairgrounds under the direction of Smyth and the Ben Emison Sales Company of Mississippi. Ken and Sandy Hammonds of Athens had the top-selling horse in the show which brought them $13,000. Smyth said three other horses received bids of more than $10,000 each. He also pointed out the sale was truly a local market because 68 of the horses sold were from within a 125-mile radius of Athens. Smyth is also a former member of the Henderson County Horse Sub- committee. His wife, Trinidad native. Anita, is a Trinidad's Del Smyth shows yearling filly Impressive Glitter (s,.ff photo by Frank Sopuch) Henderson, adjoining counties G.W.

WEEKLY Showing potential for 60 barrels of oil daily on open choke, the No. 1 Mitchell has been finaled in Anderson County's North Blackfoot Field by Cenergy Exploration of Dallas. The location is in an 80-acre unit in the William Herring Survey, about 16 miles north of Palestine. Cenergy took the hole to 9,370-ft. bottom and per- forated for Rodessa production 9,104 to 9,126 feet. Seven wells with combined potential to make 58 barrels of oil daily have been completed in the Corsicana Shallow Field by Fairfield Petroleum Inc. of Dallas. The wells are located in three leases of Corsicana Industrial Foundation land within the city limits of Corsicana. Production intervals ranged between 1,119 and 1,162 feet into the hole. Willard D. Gordon of Corsicana has successfully completed three pumping oilers in the J.R. English lease of the Corsicana Shallow Field, about one mile east of the Angus townsite.

Dr. Sire Reeves, Jr., agronomist, and Dr. Max Sud- weeks, dairy specialist, headquartered at the Texas A&M University Agricultural Research and Extension Center at Overton, figured several least-cost dairy rations with and without winter pastures. With the help of a micro-computer, the same rations were figured with and without whole cottonseed. The specialists estimate that the dairyman can save 47 cents per head per day with whole cottonseed in the ration and grazing winter pasture. Without the use of winter pasture, there is some savings by using whole cottonseed instead of cottonseed meal in the ration. * * * * * BillyHigginbotham, Extension fisheries specialist, reports that some fishermen are catching bass, sunfish and some catfish with yellow and white worms in the flesh.

Without an up-to-date inventory, it's difficult to remember items, much less prove you owned them. To prepare an inventory, list major items in each room with the serial numbers, purchase price, present value and date of purchase, suggests ~des. Combined potential for the Nos. 7, 8 and 11 English is seven barrels of oil per day. All three wells bottomed at 840 feet. Production intervals will range from 728 to 808 feet into the hole. Five wells, each showing potential for one barrel of oil daily, have been completed in the Corsicana Shallow field six miles east of Corsicana by Crown Central Petroleum Inc. of Corsicana. The wells are designated as the Nos, 34-r, 41-R, 51-R, 55-R and 56-R Kerr. They are in a 213-acre lease in Navarre County's W.R. Bowen Survey. The five completions bring to 12 the number of active producers in the lease. A wildcat has been completed 15.5 miles northeast of Palestine showing potential for 356,000 CF natural gas per day on a .75-in. choke. Showing absolute open flo~v potenti~t of 1,000,000 CFD, the well is a venture of Aztec Petroleum of Dallas. It is designated as the No. 1 Sack Trust Unit. The location is in a 39S-acre lease i~ the A.D. Lattin Survey. The well bot- tomed at 11,860 feet and will produce from a set of James Limestone per- forations, 11,056 to 11,168 feet into the hole.
