Navigating Platte
Futile for Most
Fur Traders Often
On September 17, 1806, as
Lewis and Clark were returning
from their history-making, two
year exploration of the Amer
ican West, they met a party of
men ascending the Missouri
river with a large boat loaded
with merchandise. These men
were planning to go to Santa Fe
by way of the Platte. No one
knows what happened to them,
but if they intended to take the
boat very far up the Platte
their knowledge of that stream
was as faulty as their know
ledge of geography generally.
They could hardly have been
blamed, though, for expecting
to be able to take a boat up the
Platte. It never appears on a
map except as a large and import
and river (which u is) — maps,
unfortunately, don’t show its
depth. Many others besides these
early traders tried to navigate
the Platte—and failed.
When Robert Stuart and
his associates came down the
Platte in the spring of 1813 on
their trail - blazing journey
from Astoria they attempted
to speed their progress by
building canoes in which to
float down the North Platte.
After a few days, they aband
oned the canoes not far from the
present town of Mitchell, “pretty
much tired of this new mode of
inland navigation”. Stuart wrote
further in his journal, “being very
doubtful whether we can in any
reasonable time proceed by water,
it was agreed that we should try
it once more on foot.”
John C. Fremont, “the great
pathfinder,” also tried to navigate
the Platte. On his return trip in
1842. he stopped just below the
forks to make a canoe of buffalo
hides and willows. His journal
tells the story. “On the morning
of the 15th we embarked in our
hide boat, Mr. Preuss and myself,
with two men. We dragged her
over the sands for three miles, and
then left her on a bar, and aband
oned entirely all further attempts
to navigate this river.”
Frequently fur traders made an
effort to float their precious car
goes of beaver fur down the
Platte to the Missouri, honing in
each instance that the spring rise
would hold out long enough to
enable them to get down the
Almost always they were
disappointed. Either the spring
rise failed to sustain itself or
it didn't materialize at all.
In 1840. E. Willard Smith went
all the way from the upper South
Platte to St. Louis by boat. Even
so, he found it tough going. While
still on the South Platte they got
on a sand bar every few minutes
and “were obliged to wade and
push the boat along most of the
way for about three hundred
miles.” They had to unload the
boat several times a day, “which
was very hard work.”
Below the forks, however, the
going was better. “The water was
pretty high, and we were able to
proceed quite rapidly. We some
times traveled 50 miles a day.”

Here are some of the blem
ishes and the unsoundness to
look for when buying a horse.
First, while the horse is still
in the stall, back him straight
back out of the stall. If the
stifle joint is defective he will be
unable to step backward with
the hind leg. The stifle joint is
the joint against the flank at the
forward side of the lower hip.
After the horse has been moved
about for a while the joint will
usually relax so that the animal
can step back.
Stand at the horse’s shoulder.
From this angle a bone spavin
will stand out clearly on the
inside of the lower part of the
hock joint if he has one. Do this
on each side. Also look for bog
spavin. These are soft swelling
on the front of the joint and
are located higher on the joint
than the bone spavin. Then
some may have a soft bunch
showing on each side of the
joint. These are located between
the large cord at the rear of the
joint and the bone and can be
pushed through from side to
side by a little pressure of the
hand. Also look for curby hocks
where the bones seems to be
bent forward into the joint
near the junction of the bone
and the cord at the rear of the
hock. The union of bone and
cord at this joint should be
strong and stand out well from
the joint.
Then note if there are hard
bony growths on the legs below
the knee. These splints, as they
are called, often lame a horse
especially when they first ap
pear. Then look for ring bone,
a hard bony growth, encircling
the pastern a little above the
hoof. Also side bones. These are
a hardening of the lateral cart
ilage that supports the rear
comers of the foot. You can tell
if this cartilage is hardened and
thickened by placing thumb and
finger on each side of the cord.
The hoof should be smooth-free
from cracks and uneven growth
Horses suffer from corns.
These occur in the angle where
the ibar joins the side wall of the
foot. They are inside the hoof
and not visible but believe me,
the horse knows they are there.
He will stand with his front
feet extended forward and try
to support his weight on the
hind feet as much as possible.
He does the same if his feet
have been ruined from the horse
having foundered.
Note if the animal still breathes
quietly and normally after ex
ercise and see that the eyes are
free from spots or discoloration.
llVflove the hand over the eye close
enough to cause him to blink if
he has vision.—CAL GEARY
