Was it a Colorado Midland car? That road was still active then and Colorado was very much an origin point for livestock. Tony Wagner

I looked for the car under various reporting marks (it looks like CM RY but may not be) and couldn't find a match for the car number in the 1905 or 1919 OER.
It may be a horse stockcar.... horses are more delicate animals than cattle and have to be protected from the weather more.
