Summary
  • A typed manuscript of an article written by J.F.H. Mitchell(1831-1924) under the pseudonym of Chips titled "My Old Horse Rover". Published in the Australasian. Rover was an orphan foal raised on cow's milk at Dora Dora, he was an excellent horse used for droving and chasing cattle and kangaroos. Rover was taken by John F.Mitchell's brother Edward Mitchell to the gold diggings in 1852 where they staked a claim at Eaglehawk.One night Rover was stolen but several months later one of the men was in Melbourne and recognised the horse in a vehicle. The police were notified and the case was taken to court. As Rover's brand had been altered from a 7 to a 17 the only way to prove his identity was to offer him a drink of milk which he duly drank. (Horses will not normally drink cows milk.) The magistrate accepted this as proof of ownership, case closed.
