Something tells me that those folks will be here sooner or later. That Fort Zachia...uh well.. I know nuttin! Four pieces of iron have managed to keep me busy
for nearly two years. Finding a few referances to the horses after reading hundreds of trial transcripts can be trying. I did find something else about Herold's
horse. John Fletcher testified that the horse he wanted was a lady's saddle horse and he wanted english iron stirrups. (ladies stirrups). Why ? He also asked for
a double reined bridle with two bits on it. The stirrup that the farmer picked up in the Zachia Swamp below Rich Hill is a lady's english iron stirrup from a lady's saddle
horse. The pieces of bridle came from a double reined bridle with two bits on it . Hmmm. Laurie , That's about as much as I can find , at least I can tell the "old
fella" that what he found was exactly what Herold ordered for his horse as far accoutrements were concerned. Thanks for all of your help.
