    Louis Pearce, the superintendent for the Quarter Horse Show, and Clem Bechard of the Cutting Horse Show are interviewed at the Houston Fat Stock Show. The quarter horse auction sale that year broke records held by Denver and Ft. Worth, with horses selling at an average of $1,590.00 per head. The champion mare, "Nifty" Huffington, sold for $8,500.00. Established in 1931, The Houston Fat Stock Show was the precursor to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the world's largest event of its kind. The producer of this film, Jim W. Keeland, was a photographer and videographer in the Houston area for sixty years. He took photographs and films for Houston's NBC affiliate, KPRC-TV, from 1948 until 1961, worked for the Houston Post from 1951 to 1982 as a printer, and was a freelance photographer of agricultural subjects.
