- Date Created:
- Book about the International Stock Food Farm owned by Marion Willis Savage. Marion Savage bred horses for racing at the farm. The famous harness racing horse Dan Patch, spent many years at the farm. Savage bought 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.
