Ralph was into Rodeos being around horses, I'm not certain if he was a rider or trick riding or teaching horses to do tricks, but for years he tried to do something successful with horses. It came when he acquired Dice then Fury. Ralph's wife is Mary Kornman, of "Our Gang Comedies". She was the original little blonde girl.
