The Musgave Kid’s White Jenny By Colonel R.H. Bain, Author, Monk, American Cowboy. The 1880-90's were times where men trusted men who they found favor with. In this case, Maglito Parras (the Musgave Kid) had trusted the master carpenter Francois Rochas. Parras was to give Rochas the foal from the livestock pair he had loaned him. This friendship last through five foals from the white pair. Rochas kept them feeding them and using them at no expense to Parras. Rochas need transportation to and from Santa Fe where he was working for the Sisters of Loretto. The pair remained housed in Dog Canyon for Rochas use. Parras did many unmentioned favors for Rochas that paid for their upkeep. Years ago, Parras had made a gentlemen’s agreement with Rochas. This agreement stated that of the white donkey and jenny would be taken care of with only two stipulations: 1. If the pair mated, Parras would receive a new foal each year with no feed costs. 2. If the white ass had a white jenny, it would be delivered to the livery stable in Tularosa. Parras received four donkeys in the eight years, and not one jenny ass. With this agreement, Rochas and Maglito developed a good friendship. When Parras was in the area and needed a nice place to stay, he rode out to Dog Canyon where he could help Rochas with his rock house. Rochas was a hermit of the sorts; taking shots at anyone who he thought had bad intentions or might bring him harm. ...The year Rochas built his house from stone, the Comanchero Parras and Stone Jackson (an ex-confederate soldier) assisted him. Jackson was a bootlegger, and hauled kegs of beer and liquor from El Paso to the llano (eastern plains) of New Mexico. The big Texan Jackson was unemployed and broke, yet he needed a place to winter for two months. Jackson had a tough guy demeanor, but he could work real hard all day. He spoke lightly when he worked and seldom complained he could not do the job, one had to admire him for that. Only one thing was wrong was his behavior, he was a bully of the sort. After 60 days in Dog Canyon, Jackson beat up a visitor in a friendly fight. Shortly after that fight, Frenchy Rochas had enough of his bully ways. Rochas had a falling out with Jackson. Rochas demanded he leave ASAP, so Jackson decided to go back to La Luz. Traveling north a horseback found his way back to Eastern New Mexico. He found employment with Señor Gonzales at the San Martin well. He started courting a widow woman and helped her with the construction of a dugout. He took her to El Ojo de Llano where he married her when the priest arrived from Gallegos Ranch. He built a rock house near the Canadian River and had many siblings. The picture is the only one known of Fracois Rochas and Maglito Parras livestock in Santa Fe . Please note that in your records. Keeping the Old West Alive.
