One Man’s Opinion About Spade Bits and How they Work
Dick Deller and Merrilee Morrell (now Doss) represent a team with deep appreciation for the bridlehorse and the bridleman. Dick has spent his whole life working with and perfecting the process of bridling champion cow horses. His knowledge and skill have been recognized and awarded repeatedly.
Merrilee, the daughter of Richie Morgan, perpetuates the legacy of the bridleman and horse by showing in the Western States her father’s lifetime collection of working spade bits. This collection represents Richie’s passion and skill in working with the spade bit horse. Dick and Richie were the best of friends, united by their mutual interests and values. Now Dick and Merrilee bring that together in One Man’s Opinion with Dick’s vast knowledge about the spade, Merrilee’s tutelage at her father’s knee, and illustrations of the Morgan Bit Collection.
