RE: Who Said This?
Gene,
Wikipedia has "They arrived in Argentina in May 1902, and spent five months trying to make it as ranch owners in the Pampas. Rogers and his partner lost all their money, and he later said, “I was ashamed to send home for more.” The two friends separated and Rogers sailed for South Africa. It is often claimed he took a job breaking in horses for the British Army, but the Boer War had ended three months earlier."

The Boer War ended 31 May 1902. So it is feasible that Will Rogers, trying to earn money, was paid to break in horses.

Is king o' men for a' that” Robert Burns
