[note] Q. Where did John Kirkpatrick, the cowboy who was a model once for a sculptor, live? A. Old John Kirkpatrick, shown above at age 70 while steer-roping, lived on his little ranch on Skull Creek, near Cody, Wyoming. “Old John,” as everyone called him, was once, in 1934, a guide, to the ranches on the Clark’s Fork of the Yellow-stone when the author was buying horses in that area. Riding a week with this Old Oklahoma-Texas cowboy as my guide, was an education in “wrangling wild horses.” — Photo (insert mark) by Hiscock, Cody, Wyoming in author’s collection.
