I am informed that Nathan Mooney has passed. Nancy Starkey told me Duff George brought him to the Wilson trial where he greeted old friends and met lots of people who came into sheepdogging after his heyday. Soon after he died.
He was a fine handler and his Max was an important sire. He was President of the USBCHA during its formative years and adapted its rulebook from the rodeo cowboys'. He was a quarterhorse man too.
Nathan was very funny and when he and Hub Holmes sat side by side handlers moved their chairs closer.
He was also the only human being on the planet who could get away with calling Ethel Conrad "Sweet Cheeks".
See you on down the road, Nathan . . .
