In 1890, Jack Sinclair became director of the Dodge City Cowboy Band and the band moved to Pueblo, Colorado. Sinclair's experience as a cattle puncher and professional musician added even more showmanship to their already dramatic performances. They played in Washington, D.C. at the inaugural celebration of Benjamin Harrison in 1889 and the band served as regimental band for the 2nd U.S. Cavalry in Cuba during the Spanish American War. The Dodge City Cowboy Band's farewell performance was Sinclair's 1916 opera "The Cowboy's Dream." It was Sinclair who moved the band from Dodge City to Pueblo, Colorado.

Al Furstnow Hollywood Saddle

Lot 39: Al Furstnow Hollywood Saddle

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: The "William S. Hart" saddle A full seat saddle with deep floral carving, large square skirts, solid silver cantle binding and impressive domed conchos. The deep seat is 13 1/2" and has a 5" cantle; attached is a silver presentation plate that almost covers the entire cantle back. Original black dyed leather has a nice shine but does show some age cracking to the finish. The stirrups are silver covered on the front and match the rest of the heart-bordered sterling decorations. Al Furstnow was in Hollywood for only a short time, and seldom do you see a saddle with this mark, especially a silver-mounted saddle. It also has a colorful history. The saddle is said to have come out of William S. Hart's estate, to Bugsy Siegel's Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, where it was the centerpiece of an exhibit in the front of the hotel. In 1962, Rex Cauble was in Vegas participating in the Cutting Horse World Championship with Cutter Bill. Abe Schiller, President of the Flamingo, gifted the saddle to Rex after his win. Rex went on to loan the saddle to the Garrison Texas Ranger Museum, where it was prominently on display. Eventually the saddle returned to Rex's ranch, though he had always hoped it would once again be on public display, as a tribute to the talents of both Furstnow and Hart. Lot includes colorful sign from Garrison Museum display. William S. Hart (1864-1946) Born in Newburgh, New York, William Surrey Hart began his acting career on stage in his 20s, and in film when he was 49. He was an American silent film actor, screenwriter, director and producer. He is remembered for having "imbued all of his characters with honor and integrity". Hart went on to become one of the first great stars of the motion picture western. Fascinated by the Old West, he acquired Billy the Kid's "six shooters" and was a friend of legendary lawmen Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. He entered films in 1914 where, after playing supporting roles in two short films, he achieved stardom as the lead in the feature "The Bargain." Hart was particularly interested in making realistic western films. His films are noted for their authentic costumes and props, as well as Hart's extraordinary acting ability, honed on Shakespearean theater stages in the United States and England. He made his last film, "Tumbleweeds" (1925), for United 550 and retired to a ranch in Newhall, CA. Al Furstnow (1862-1925) Born in 1862 in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin, Al Furstnow settled in Miles City in 1894 and became the major saddler in the northwest. Furstnow opened Al Furstnow's Saddle Shop on Main Street in 1884 and is credited with making the first flower hand-stamped saddles in Miles City In December 1894, Charlie Coggshall bought half interest in Furstnow's shop. Two years later, Furstnow and Coggshall, as partners, bought out the stock of Moran and W. J. Zimmerman. They added workers and became the only major saddlery between Billings, Montana, and Dickinson, North Dakota. They split up in March 1899. Al Furstnow went to California around 1922 where he built saddles for Hollywood stars. He died in California around 1925.

Description: Cutter Bill - P-53, 703 18" x 14" Oil on Masonite Signed lower right Framed to 34 1/2" x 29" in period frame Cutter Bill (1955-1982) was a Quarter Horse palomino stallion who won multiple championships in the 1960s, and went on to become arguably the most famous cutting horse of all time. He was an influential sire, and the namesake of the famous Cutter Bill's Western World, the "Neiman Marcus of the cowboy crowd." Cauble bought Cutter Bill at Underwood's dispersal sale in 1956 for $2500. Cauble broke Cutter Bill himself, and for the first couple of years used him as a teaser stallion for Cauble's more famous stallions like Wimpy P-1, Silver King, and Hard Twist. As a three year old, Cutter Bill was started on cutting and proved a natural at it. Cutter Bill was the National Cutting Horse Association (or NCHA), World Champion in 1962 and the NCHA Reserve World Champion in 1963. With the AQHA he earned the 1962 High Point Cutting Horse award along with AQHA Champion and Performance Register of Merit awards. He was also an AQHA Superior Cutting Horse and was inducted into the AQHA Hall of Fame in 2003. Orren Mixer (1920-2008) A painter and graphic artist, Mixer is best known for his life-like depictions of livestock, but especially horses. He is thought by many to be the premiere painter of western horses of our day, and his images of different breeds were shown on covers of Western Horseman, Quarter Horse Journal, Cattleman, and Oklahoma Today. Born in Oklahoma City, he was educated in the public school system and with the help of his high school art teacher, gained a scholarship to the Kansas City Art Institute, where he studied from 1938 to 1940. He subsequently worked in the graphic arts field in New York City, Oklahoma City, and Fort Worth, Texas. Mixer moved to San Diego to work in an aircraft manufacturing, returning to Fort Worth in 1943, where he joined the U.S. Navy. He was stationed in Chicago, working as a visual aids graphic artist, painting Western scenes in his spare time. Married in 1941, he was discharged from the service in 1946, when he and his wife moved to Oklahoma, building a house and studio near Arcadia/Edmond. Mixer was inducted in the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 1993. Most of his work was commissioned by private horse breeders and has been passed down through families just as with the horses' bloodlines. It's rare that Mixer pieces come to market.
