Pawnee Eagle – Champion Quarterhorse

Posted on

Excerpt from Leroy Webb The Last Cowboy by Davis L. Ford:

The centerpiece of Leroy and Nora’s professional life at their Monte Vista ranch was developing their quarter horse breeding program and performing in the quarter horse show circuit.  Leroy had developed the necessary skills and knowledge during his tutelage under Wiescamp, knew the prerequisite importance of the right bloodlines, and became immediately successful.  Pawnee Eagle was his first stallion, and he was a great one.

. . . Leroy stated that “I have had the pleasure of riding some exceptionally great horses, but the most outstanding was Pawnee Eagle.  His character, size, and ability left nothing to be desired.  As a sire, he passed on all these characteristics to his offspring.”

As a young child until my teen years, we lived in Tucumcari, New Mexico.  Every now and then I go back for the Tucumcari Reunion (and love visiting old friends and making new friends).  Haven’t been back for a reunion in awhile; it is probably time!

This area of New Mexico is mostly flat (certainly doesn’t have the mountain range that we enjoyed when we lived in Denver).

However, Tucumcari has a mountain. Yep folks –  that’s Tucumcari mountain in the background  – standing sentinel while Leroy Webb (The Last Cowboy) feeds his horses and I figure that Leroy and his friend plan to have a cup of coffee later and trade horse stories.
