Historic Casey County, KY - Lewis Alan Reed, horseman

2013-12-28 - Ellisburg, Casey Co., KY - Photo from the collection Alan W. Reed. Lewis Alan Reed, my grandfather and noted horse lover. This shot was taken long ago on our family farm located between Jacktown and Ellisburg in Casey County, KY, near the Casey/Lincoln/Marion County lines. The farm is now owned by Lester Griffin. A swinging bridge crossed Little South Fork of the Rolling Fork and connected the Reed farm and Rocky Ford School to county road 78 access. The mules were two of his favorite pulling horses. When the movie "Raintree County," was being filmed in Danville, KY, my grandfather provided the horses for the film (not this pair), and was well known at horse shows all through south central Kentucky.He wasn't exactly a 'horse whisperer,' but horses loved him, and he could train any horse easily. The barn still stands. It is now clad in sheet metal. - Alan W. Reed
