HORSE CREEK (Lipscomb County). Horse Creek rises in two branches in southwestern Lipscomb County (at 36°07' N, 100°27' W) and runs south for twelve miles, through flat to rolling terrain surfaced by deep fine sandy loams, before reaching its mouth on the Canadian River, in northwestern Hemphill County (at 35°57' N, 100°27' W). Local vegetation includes brush and grasses. The stream was part of the Cresswell Ranch range and on the route of the Jones and Plummer Trail.
