Notes / Description: 

Parties allegedly had an agreement where by Graves would deliver to Hightower a stud horse, which horse Hightower would keep & mate with mares during the mating season & would then split the profits from such mating with Graves. Graves delivered the horse & he was mated with 100 mares during the season, but Hightower failed to pay Graves as agreed, leading Graves to file this suit.
