A catalogue of nineteen horses for sale at the San Antonio fair, each with a half tone illustration and a description. "Individually the horses are the kind the people want, the kind the people ought to buy, and the kind that give satisfaction." The first item in the catalogue is a pair of bay geldings, Scotty and The Bard, described as "breedy looking with extreme high style and high all around action". Horse number six is identified as "Happy Jack," a chestnut gelding foaled in 1902. His lineage is given, as is his height and gait. He is noted as "absolutely fearless with some speed," well mannered, and "a thorough broke horse for ladies or children." Most of the animals are pictured in profile harnessed to a carriage or other equipage. The final horse, Royal Sphinx No. 38851, is a stallion and is not pictured, though his pedigree is outlined in detail. Unsurprisingly, not located in OCLC.
