This is Belmont Scare a AAA horse that Robert Mitchem bought from Dale Robertson. I think he was a son of Spanish Fort. Jim Hitt handled the Mitchem stallions at Solvang, CA. Dorothy Mitchem, Robert's wife would commission me to do a painting for Robert as a Christmas gift several different years. The Mitchems were very kind, took me out to dinner, and Robert always wrote a nice letter of his appreciation of the detail on the paintings.
