Snowmass History: Brunton takes thirty prizes
“Brunton Takes Thirty Prizes” claimed The Aspen Democrat-Times on Sept. 15, 1915. “‘Jack’ Brunton had returned from the State Fair at Pueblo, and he has in his inside pocket thirty ribbons, to wit: 2 grand champions, 4 champions, 17 first, 5 second, and 2 third — all from three head of cattle and seven horses from the Glendale Stock Farm. That isn’t so bad for old Pitkin County, and Mr. Brunton is to be congratulated. The Glendale Stock Farm is one of the best in the West, and the stock is of the blue ribbon class, every head of ’em. Mr. Brunton will have none but the best.”
