article description
The noted Maine horseman and veterinarian George H. Bailey made his first trip to the bluegrass region of Kentucky in the fall of 1885. Upon his return, he wrote a series of six letters published in the Maine Farmer in 1885 and 1886 that compared the two states in breeding trotting horses. This article provides a summary and commentary on each of Bailey's letters.
