- Date Created:
- Advertisement for livestock feed sold by the International Stock Food Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota. "The world's standard animal tonic." Ad features world famous stallions Arion, Minor Heir, Dan Patch, Directum, and Roy Wilkes. International Stock Food Company was owned by Marion Savage, who bought race horse Dan Patch to help promote his business. Consequently, Dan Patch is featured on many International Stock Food Products. The horse and his owner had a close connection: Dan Patch died July 11, 1916; Savage died of a heart attack a few days later. Dan Patch became less significant as America embraced the automobile. Ironically, Savage started manufacturing the Dan Patch automobile in 1911.
