Did Hoxie ever buy fresh imports or were these younger animals acquired from a hodgepodge of sources?

I believe the six that I put together fo Hoxie were from Chase in Miami.johnny

Ryan Easley said...

Mr. Herriott,
Which six were those?

John Herriott said...

Hoxie bought three bottle babies Janet, Stacy and Kelly. Kenny Ickert took care of them for about a season and then Rex trained on them during a couple seasons with Hoxie. He then bought two African babies, namely Hoxie and Betty plus a little female named Irene. I put those six together in an act and Irene was undernourish in poor health and died during the Penn. floods that year. I left at seasons end and African Betty died in wntqtrs. Hoxie would buy a female asian and named her Betty and another named Irene. Later I came back and trained those two.
