Walking Horse Breeder On Cyprus, Mediterranean Isle, Orders Voice The mail on Tuesday, Oct. 23, 1962, brought another great big eye- opener for the Voice Editor and his Secretary. It was a letter from Guri Copla, P.O. Box 163, Larnaca, Cyprus. He was ordering a subscription with a two-dollar bill and two one-dollar Hills, U.S. currency. This letter was addressed to the Voice Editor but it was mailed to the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ Assn, of America, Inc., at Lewisburg, Tenn. Our Breeders’ Assn, friends for­ warded it to us. We were amazed to learn from Mr. Copla’s letter that he has a smooth­ riding Tennessee Walking Horse stal­ lion, and evidently has a breeding program under way. We immediately wrote to him asking more informa­ tion. His brief letter said: "Dear Mr. Green, I’m very sorry but I couldn’t send a leiter till now because I moved here to breed horses. "As I settle down here for the meantime I’m trying to get from you the magazine of 'The Voice of the Tennessee Walking Horse.’ "As a foreigner I am not able to send an international money order Goldswig To Push Walker Interest
