Abstract/ Summary

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.
