This home movie from the Horak Family collection provides a glimpse into the family's daily life in El Paso. Children on their way to school pose and walk for the camera, as does police officer C.J. Horak on his way to his motorcycle. Also captured is a rodeo parade featuring marching bands, baton twirlers and cowboys on horseback filing in front of the El Paso County and Federal Courthouse buildings. A significant portion of the reel is dedicated to the family's English bulldogs playing with family members and being trained, and a litter of puppies, suckling and learning to crawl.
