FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Celebrate Black History Month:
Ned Huddleston (1849-1900), known as Isom Dart was born into slavery in Arkansas in 1849. Riding, roping and bronco-busting earned him the nicknames “Black Fox” and “Calico Cowboy.” He was also a notorious Wyoming Territory outlaw.
After being freed from slavery at the end of the war Huddleston headed 2 the southern Texas-Mexico border where he worked rodeo, became a stunt rider and developed master horseman skills.
Huddleston straddled both sides of the law. Huddleston and a Mexican bandit named Terresa lived as rustlers stealing horses in Mexico and selling them in Texas. Huddleston later joined a cattle drive heading northwest to Brown’s Hole in the Colorado-Wyoming area around 1871.
After a wild love affair with a Shoshone Indian woman in 1875, Huddleston joined the infamous Tip Gault Gang, a cattle and horse rustling outfit of southeastern Wyoming. Narrowly escaping death, he moved west and started a new life as a hard-working bronco buster, going by the name of Isom Dart.
Isom Dart later returned to Brown’s Hole around 1890 to established his own ranch. Local cattlemen suspected he built his ranch herd from cattle he’d rustled from their ranches. The ranchers hired the notorious range detective, Tom Horn, to punish Dart. Horn ambushed and killed Isom Dart on October 3, 1900 near Brown's Hole. Some Brown's Hole residents mourned his death, claiming Dart was killed by cattleman who wanted his land and cattle. They saw Dart as a good-hearted, talented horseman and a top bronc stomper. Others believed he never completely gave up his life of cattle rustling and thus remained a menace to the community.
