Buckles, I have a picture or Rex Rossi's trick saddle now in residence at the Gene Autry Western Heritage Museum in Los Angeles. Will forward post haste.

Dam is that Rex Rossi in Drag.??

Just kidding, The blond bomb shell war lord from Timber Lome Ln. looks sharp and that Rossi tack looks like it cost a buck or two.
Nice shot William.

Diane Olds Rossi (ex-wife of Rex), mentioned that saddle to me, and yes, it did cost a couple of pretty pennies. Diane, who is probably one of the finest horsewomen I have ever met, has opened a training stable in Northern California. She has the gaff on piaffe's and passage's, I want to tell you. Her Red Freisian Stallion, Fire Magic, was a Breyer horse model. And yes, James C. Hall, GeeGee look's great.

Wade, you are absolutely right about Dianne. She is the best. I'm glad I got to spend time with her while she was in the midwest and talk about the "old days".

I intend to remedy the fact I still haven't visited the Gene Autry Museum. I vividly remember Gee Gee telling the two finest men she ever worked for in show business were Clyde Beatty and Gene Autry.
