“Too Young To Be In The Bar”.
by Dick Hunt, September 5th, 2011
This story was told me by Dr.  Stan Wood, Federal Government Veterinarian in the Cariboo.
A few miles south of Alexis Creek there was (and still is) a stopping house and Saloon which was very popular, called Beecher House. One day when the bar was well patronized, a local man who was already heavily under the influence of alcohol, rode his fancy horse up the steps and through the bat wing doors into the bar, demanding to be served his favourite drink.  The horse was causing damage and disruption and the man refused to get out.  Someone rode off post haste to Alexis Creek to get the Mountie.  On the way down he thought out a way to remove him. He knew the man was very proud of his horse and so he came in, walked up to him and said,”pretty fine horse you’ve got there. The man puffed out his chest and said, “sure is, the best horse in the whole Cariboo”. The mountie responded, “too bad he is so “immature. At that the rider blustered and said, “wadaya mean, he’s right in his prime”.  The mountie said, “no he can’t be, he’s under the age limit. I read it when I came in here.  He has to be at least 21 to enter. It’s on the sign outside the door”.  So the man rode his horse out of the bar and the Mountie chalked up a success in averting further violence.
