This photo of Art Shahan atop his roping horse Bee April was on the cover of Cattleman Magazine in the early ‘60’s. The photo was taken with a herd of Santa Gertrudis on Fairview Farms, which later became San Jose Cattle Company in Pleasanton. That year Mr. Shahan won a roping at Houston (in the mud outdoors, before the Astrodome) on Bee. “He rode for the brand.” Bee April was a great horse, and Art would win grand champion halter horse in the morning and win the calf roping and team tying in the evening. Debra Shahan, Art’s daughter, learned to ride and show on Bee April.
