The property of Jonas Seely, Sr., of Sugar Loaf, Orange Co., N.Y. This was a mare of remarkable endurance. Her trotting action never was much developed, but she could gallop all day long. In 1807, Mr. Seely rode her from Hoboken to his home in Orange Co. in one day, a distance of 75 miles, and carried his son Jonas behind him.
She more than once went to Albany, one hundred miles, in a day. She had white hairs in her tail, and hence her name.
