HORSE CREEK (Donley County). Horse Creek rises eleven miles northeast of Howardwick in east central Donley County (at 35°04' N, 100°43' W) and runs south for four miles to its mouth on the Salt Fork of the Red River (at 34°59' N, 100°43' W). The creek was on the RO Ranch. It traverses rolling to steep-sloped terrain surfaced by shallow clay and sandy loams that support native vegetation including juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses
