Handsome stud broadside for American Clyde, featuring a large woodcut of a trotting horse and a description of the individual in question. “American Clyde is five years old the 7th of May, 1884, weighs 1300 pounds. He is a well bred horse, rangy, has fine style, good traveler, and a good work horse; works either single or double, true to pull and a kind disposition. We are certain that no one will regret breeding to him after seeing his get, which are generally large, and in color bay, black or sorrel.” Clyde’s pedigree is also listed, with a $15 stud fee for the season. A contemporary hand has completed the blank space indicating where Clyde can be found, listing three locations in Sutter County: with S.S. Mitchell in Yuba April 3-5, at Gridley Station on April 8, and at the North Butte Zarlog Ranch April 10-12. A nice California stud broadside, made more desirable by its manuscript notations.
