\ Y . C . Maclnnis Parade Marshal
Florida will certainly be one-up on California unless they have Walking Horses in the Rose Bowl Parade , which 1 am told they have not had heretofore . The Grand Marshal of Tampa ’ s ( Florida ) famous Gasparilla Parade on February 11 , 1963 will be W . C . Maclnnis . Knowing Mr . Maclnnis ' penchant for Walking Horses , am sure he will be astride one at this gala time .
Boswells Build Barn Henry Boswell , vice president , and Bootsie Boswell , secretary of the Tennessee Walking Horse Association of Florida , have recently built a new barn in St . Petersburg , Florida for their five registered Tennessee Walkers . The Boswells hope to enter the amateur ranks as exhibitors in the area very soon .

“ Be it resolved , to furnish a representative of the Association to appear before any Group in any City in Florida to help promote any horse show which includes at least six ( 6 ) ribbon Walking Horse Classes .

In some instances films might be available as well as a live horse exhibit when the space is provided . While our main interest is the Walking Horse we will include comment on horses and horse shows in general . Where permissible a live horse will be paraded through the city or stationed at a prominent place to help advertise the coming show .
“ Our purpose and hope is by popularizing and promoting the Tennessee
