HORSE CREEK (OLDHAM COUNTY)
HORSE CREEK (Oldham County). Horse Creek, also known by its Spanish name of Agua Caballo, rises in the extreme northwestern corner of Oldham County (at 35°37' N, 103°02' W) and runs southeast for thirteen miles to its confluence with the Canadian River (at 35°29' N, 102°54' W). It traverses an area of rolling to steep-sloped terrain, surfaced by clayey and sandy loams that support juniper, cacti, and grasses. During the last part of its course Horse Creek passes through Sidle Canyon. The creek is fed by Horse Spring, also known as Ojo Caballo. Evidence of lark buntings and antelope is found there.
