Arthur Drummond was born in Denver, Colorado in 1874 to Albert and Elizabeth
Arthur turned the ranching operation over to his son Frank and went to
running mustangs. He became known to many as the "king of the mustangers."
He traded his freight wagons and teams to Ed Stauffer of the Circle Bar
for 60 head of mares. The Drummond's outfit became one of the largest
horse operations in the area (the Owyhee Desert). He gathered large herds
of horses, which they drove to Winnemucca, Nevada and shipped them out
by train. This was between 1915 and 1937. Drummond was an excellent roper
and would rope anything big or small regardless of the size of his saddle
horse. He was well known in Idaho and Oregon for his knowledge of wild
horses, which he dedicated his life to.
