Look Ma! It’s a Bull!

The year is 1949, and Mary Nelson from the suburbs of Chicago has just married Ralph Yates and moved to the Drowsy Water Ranch near Hot Sulphur Springs, Colorado. She has always been an animal lover, so she quickly makes friends with Alpine III, one of the prize bulls. You can almost hear her say, “I need a photo to send to the folks back home.”
