Today In Wyoming's History: June 6, 1915. British Remount Agents Begin to Purchase Horses In Wyoming.

Today In Wyoming's History: June 6:

1915  British commissioners began to purchase remounts in Wyoming.  The purchase of horses for British service in World War One created a boom in horse ranching which would continue, fueled both by British and American service purchases, throughout the war, but which would be followed by a horse ranching crash after the war.
