The Hap Magee Cowboy Extravaganza
Equine Rescue Outakuntrol is announcing the rescue of the
"Hap Magee Cowboy Extravaganza Collection" to our Ranch / Sanctuary.
Cowboy & Rancher Hap Magee once owned and housed the "Oldest & Largest Branding Iron Collection in the World" along with other non replaceable historical western memorabilia until his passing in 1985 .. .. Haps life long collection containing 1000's of cowboy items over 100 years old were delivered to the Cowboy Memorial and Library, Walker Basin, Ca. in 1987 to put on display... Thru many years of sales, thefts, rodents and non conditioning 90% of the collection is missing or ruined beyond repair.
OPERATION RESCUE: After many long days and nights of destress, determination, hard work and a couple of volunteers, we have moved 3 empty and 2 tractor trailers holding what is left of the collection along with 3 old wagons to our ranch/sanctuary.
Our goal is to recondition and replace what items we can and reopen the museum for all generations to view.
We are sorry to say that through many years of sheer neglect, abuse, theft and rats there is not much left of the collection.
Many of the historical Magee cowboy memorabilia pieces once on display from the Cowboy Memorial & Library are lost forever... But we plan to salavage what we can from what is left and possibly reopen a portion of the Hap Magee Cowboy Museum here at our sanctuary.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO RESTORE AND HOUSE THE REMAINING ITEMS FROM THIS WORTHY COLLECTION..DONATE NOW
