Throwback Thursday: October 1969

From the issue: "'Someone Left the Gate Open.' From an oil painting by artist Joe Beeler. The artist, who lives in Sedona and is enjoying increasing repute as a fine Western artist, is no stranger to ranch life and the Western scene. When we asked him to do something for us featuring barbed wire, this painting was the result. When we questioned him about the long horns of the cow, he explained in coyote country mamma cow is allowed long horns to protect her calf."
