I think mr. Sam Yarborough was in law enforcement.

Celia Schuptrine was from Dallas County, Alabama.

With tears in my heart I say goodbye to those of you who will not continue these wonderful conversations. I do wish David and Christy would make some type of arrangements for the "retired" friends to be able to access the forums........Perhaps with some viable information as to who they are and that they are no longer actively involved.

Who knows, maybe our usefulness is gone?????

Saddletramp - the next time that you go to the boat dock and see Connell - please tell him that Cissy sends her love - it has been a long time - also if you called him "Rubber Ducky" he might get a real laugh and tell you a funny tale. Thanks
SL, Everette & mason - I have your email addresses and can stay in touch that way - only it wo't be nearly as much fun!
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Saddle Tramp

Hey Everette - stay in touch - keep on sending me those highly sophisticated and tasteful e-mails - I love them - c
____________________________________________________________________________________________

twhlady

Well folks, I just subscribed for WHReport.....and will do whatever is necessary on Monday to be able to continue learning the news, keeping up with events, receiving notices of births and deaths of loved ones in our great industry..........and seeing nice ads of people showing our great breed........AND CHATTING WITH THOSE OF YOU WHO REMAIN.......

I SINCERELY HOPE AT LEAST SOME OF YOU JOIN UP AND SUBSCRIBE. It will be a shame for us to lose touch...
again.......after so long.

Those of you who do subscribe, please add your names to our thread.......Those of you who do not, perhaps you will take the time to send an email from time to time.

I emailed Christy and David to let them know there is a contingency of horsemen, no longer industry involved except in the heart, who would like to continue chatting......

Hopefully, they will make some allowances for those who are retired and/or those who have only an interest in keeping up with old friends and talking about old times.........

Maybe they will do something to allow payment only for the chat. I am sure IF this can be done, there will be a system for guaranteeing that WHReport is not wanted/needed........in order to qualify only for the chat.........

Remember add your screen names if you will continue...
And to the rest, maybe something will be done.

twhlady, thank you for starting this great thread, and thanks to David and family for providing this service for so long, then only charging a minimal fee to keep it running. No one else through the years has tried to bring the TWH news to the public in such an honest and unbiased way.
I was trying to decide what to do when I realized that instead of driving 45 miles (1 hour) to the trainer's show, I'm working to get my boat in shape. The decision has already been made...
I have enjoyed chatting with all of you. Best of luck to each and everyone in the future, and maybe I'll take some time off from fishing to hit a horse show or two and see you there. Regardless, as Red Skelton said in his sign-off at the end of his show every night..."may God bless!"

twhlady, I do subscribe to the paper & have for several years. I enjoy reading the Report cover to cover every week, and I'm sure you will as well.
Another trivia question, but does anyone remember Benvis Beechboard? Saddletramp, there was also another fellow at the sales we called "Buckboard". Do you remember him or know his real name? Do you know who owns Earnest Starnes' old farm, or if it is even still there? I know so many of the old farms are now subdivisions, but this one bordered on a wildlife refuge area. Hope it is still there.
Also, someone said "Mostella" (sp? I think his first name was Charles) who worked for Joe Van Clayton had passed away. Does anyone know?
It was also nice to hear from Priscilla (sp?) Talley and Micky Groom on this thread. Micky was the first exhibitor to have her mount throw a shoe at the Celebration in it's current location. She had a daughter who starred in a network television soap.
Well, back to the boat. I'm making progress...
____________________________________________________________________________________________

graymare

I remember Benvis Beachboard. Not only did he show horses, he also officiated many of the basketball games I played in. He was a good, honest official and always friendly. Wasn't his barn in Bell Buckle?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

everready

Benvis Beachboard was from Bell Buckle, he was allergic to penecilin,when i was just a kid when one of his horses would need a shot of pen. i would go out and do it for him. He use to raise Blooded Butcher Corn, best corn you ever ate.they use to call benvis (Buckboard)
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

J441

Everready, your memory is much better than mine. You are right; Beachboard & Buckboard were the same person. Do you remember the twisted walking sticks he made? He gave me one after I insured a couple of horses with him.
After a horse event in Birmingham one night, he took the microphone in a small bar and started singing Jim Reeves songs without any backup music. Even the paid act sat and enjoyed. Benvis had a very nice singing voice. I'll drop you an email & we'll chat some more.
Saddletramp, we'll get together. Nickajack sounds good. My boat is just a 15.5' runabout trihull, 30 years old this year and looks it, but it's fun to be on the water.
Just a somewhat interesting note; when David Howard was with the Voice magazine, he wrote an article (cover story) about my dad and dubbed him "Mister Horsetrader USA". Dad enjoyed the title so much that after his wife Katie passed away and he bought the two adjoining grave sites so that he could be buried next to her. There is a single headstone for the two graves, and his side is marked "R.B. Hickey, Mister Horsetrader USA". I brought Dad to a sale a couple of years ago and Saddletramp had the issue, and gave it to Dad. Really made his day!
Off again, drop me a line sometime!

I do remember the crooked walking canes that benvis made,i do remember your dad also, never seen him without his cowboy hat on.He bought and sold a lot of horses thru Murray Farm sales.Benvis did have a tragic end to his life, it was so sad.

horsetrainer

hey am a young guy but have really enjoyed this thread i loved hearing the storys of the past. im unable to affored this right now. i learned alot from here and am sad i wont be able to read anymore my email is horsetrainer06@yahoo.com someone email me if things change or if u have a good story.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

J441

Folks, I'll leave the thread on "History and Trivia" with a few statements/opinions about the future...
I do not trust the government. Whatever they appear to agree on will go out the window the week of Fayetteville, Belfast, & Wartrace. They want to get the most bang for their buck, and attacking during this week has proven to cause the most disheartening damage. When the USDA proves it can be consistent throughout the year and stop these tactics, I'll listen to them again.
This being said, bring the horses to the show clean. No excuses. This coming from an ex-trainer & horse trader who has seen and done many things. I cleaned up my act & found it to be very profitable while making it much easier to sleep at night. Never got written up, but changed for the better anyway.
Pointing our fingers at the faults in other breeds only makes the non-horse owning public think all horse owners are dirty. Stop. It does no good and makes no friends among the people who love the other breeds. We need to be accepted, not shunned.
Final note: don't think you can do whatever you want at the barn & come to the show clean. The detractors are much more educated and are not buying the bull. The horses will tell on you at inspection. Put your butt in the saddle and invest the time. The final product will be worth it & there will be no alternative soon anyway.
Know what makes this thread so great? All the fond memories and fellowship from years gone by. We owe it to the generations to come to preserve this industry.
I love Tennessee Walking Horses and most all the people associated with them.
Thanks again, Sarah Lynn! See you at Columbia or the Fun Show!!!

I've been a member of the site for awhile and hadn't been over to this thread for a little while and my oh my! Yall can talk and I just spent alllll evening going through all the pages I have missed and I sure have enjoyed it. I wish WHR would reconsider their charges. I used to get the paper but quit it when it became old news. I have really enjoyed it and if anyone wants to write personally I'd enjoy hearing from you. hillcrest@netease.net
This is such a shame.
___________________________________________________________________________________________

twhlady

Well foks, I'm here...........Seems rather lonesome. Any of you who arrive her, please say hello and we will continue our conversations. I truly hope we have not lost too many of our friends as a result of the changeover. Everyone must realize, this web site is absolutely the best source for news about our great horse and all our friends whom we know and love.

Sarah Lynn

PS - Please acknowledge that you are here.
___________________________________________________________________________________________

THE END


NOTE:

Actually there are a couple more pages to the original Walking Horse Trivia thread on the WHR site, but from this point on, most ALL of the regulars are GONE.

The thread continued for just a short while and finally fizzled out in June of 2007. Christy Parsons was the last poster on that thread.

This was one of the longest, interesting and FUN threads I have ever been a part of. It is a shame it had to end, but perhaps it worked out for the best in the long run.

But it really wasn't the end, was it?

After a lot of trial and error a new board was finally born in March of 2007. Unfortunately, we had some problems with the first board with hackers and all the information was lost. I made a new, temporary board, in December of that year, which we used before migrating to the current one. The following is some of the conversation from that board. I will be skipping around a little and leaving a few minor things out of this next segment, but some interesting chat here as well, with a little lighter and casual tone and with many of the same players. You will notice something different about this segment......this time around we have photos !!!

Trivia Board #2

____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

You should be able to guess that Bubbadog!

By the way, I have been informed that Connie (Cbobo) had surgery last week and is home recovering. Let's keep her in our thoughts.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Its gotta be JD, that was is favorite drink, so i was told
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Sadlbum

I believe the first picture is French Brantley, Charles' daddy (but I have been known to be wrong)
____________________________________________________________________________________________


Bubbadog

Smitty - it COULD have been George Dickel!
____________________________________________________________________________________________


Everett

Sadlbum
by golly i think you are right on being Mr French, he and Mr. Charlie looked a lot a like
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________


Everett



Who's Dis

____________________________________________________________________________________________


Grits

is it Master of Jazz at the UT football game
____________________________________________________________________________________________


Everett

Grits
Good guess but thats not him
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Graymare

It might be RPM at the UT football game.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Graymare
You got the ballgame right, but its not RPM
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Sadlbum

How about OOPs? Otherwise, it could be Pat Rigual's Storm Threat but he wouldn't have been at a UT ballgame.

And does anyone else see a resemblence between Mr. Charlie and Henry Fonda? They have the same eyes, pug nose, color of hair and body build.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Yeah, I see a resemblance.
I watched the Grapes of Wrath just the other day.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Yep Sadlbum see it was OOPS
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett



Who Dat Baby Boy
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Graymare

That be Mr. Vernon, Ms. Gladys, and Baby Elvis.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Graymare you ar right, that is Baby Elvis ,mom and dad
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Smitty was that Mr. French or Mr. Charlie Brantley, I thought for sure it was Charlie
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Mason
You and I have spent a lot of time in that ole Barn there in BeechGrove,Haven't we, remember that ole Tack trunk that set in the front crosstie by Steve's Office
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Mason

I think it was an old red wooden box wasn't it?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Yep Mason , it was a Red Wooden Hand made Tack Box, course we all used it to set on, do you remember the Sweat Scrapers we used?it was the top of a Big Tin Can , nailed to a piece of wood shaped like a Paddle. That picture you sent me of Jessie, Jackie and Steve, Jessie was holding one of them
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Sadlbum was right,

The first photo is Mr. J. FRENCH Brantley, the pioneer of horse breeding in middle Tennessee.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

I can just barley remember Mr. French, He was an old man when i was born there, But I remember Mr. Charlie real well, saw him 7 or 8 yrs. ago when i went by Richard Myers barn in Manchester
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Grits

I should have known that was oops I have a picture of him on my dresser. On the way home from the 2005 Celebration I made up a game for myself, I would only get ball caps of two horses I thought would win. In 2006 I went 15 times to the four mac barn to see master of jazz I ask a young man if he was there and he ask me why I wanted to know and I told him that he was my pick to win, the young man smiled and lead me to his stall and I got to go in and pet him, what a thrill for me(almost wet my pants). The man gave me a hat and we all know how that season ended...
In 2007 master of jazz was my pick again so I got another hat (the first one was tatered and worn) and he won... I can't wait to keep up with the horses show stats this year to see if my luck holds up.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Mason

Yes those scrapers were made out of coffee can lids......we used them when I worked there.Saved the bought ones for shows.....remember watering all those horses in that old tub?You would nearly freeze to death watering all those in the old barn...I loved it though....Steve was a good businessman...spent as little as anybody I've ever known for tack and etc.Remember he kept his show bridle in the trunk of his car.He told me once he used the same bit on all the WC he rode...Talking about Showmen he and Sam showed ALL the time..they never wore ballcaps and tennis shoes did they?When you saw them out they were dressed like successful horsemen.Not grease monkeys!
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Yep Mason those guys were first class act.I never seen either of them out that they weren't dressed to the nine's, thats who i mirrowed my self after, And Gentelman they both were
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett



Who's Dat
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Graymare

That would be Pop Gray.
Does anyone remember the year that Billy showed Ebony's Threat at the Fun Show? That was one fine animal that night - I got the cold chills watching him - I can't remember who won that night though. I think that it was 1981.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Bubbadog

You are right, thats Billy Gray, what Horse is that?
The Reason I think Billy is one of, if not the Best Trainers in the Business in our era.Just look at his record.To become a GREAT Trainer, FIRST Thing You NEED , Is Good Stock to start with,and down thru the years Billy has had his share of The Best Prospects to Start Training ( Makes A Big Differance )Had Great Work Ethic's (Big Key )In my Opinion on showing, Including myself, I was Pretty Damn Good,There is NO One sets in the saddle and Presents a Horse Better than Billy Gray.
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Bubbadog

Oooops - I forgot the horse - that is Secret Threat
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Eddie
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Bubbadog
It is Delight Of Pride
Can you name the Trainer that had him Before Billy Him
____________________________________________________________________________________________

makethecut

Didn't the Edwards have him before Billy.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Bubbadog

My two cents worth is going in with MaketheCut - I'm pretty sure that the Edwards brothers had him before Billy
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

I am going to say Jimmy Holder had him.....
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Smitty
It was Jimmy Holder
Makethecut and Bubbadog , Edwards Bro's had him as a 3yr.old,
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Graymare

For the three guys picture, the one in the middle is Elvis. How do I know? Well, there are pictures of my hubby that look just like Elvis (and those that don't) but the one in the middle is nearly a copy of some I have of a very young Don. I have no clue who the other two are.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Graymare
That is a very young Elvis and i don't know the other two neither, his bud's i guess
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Eddie
I had Jim Dixon come to Augusta Ga. and take a Picture of Ebony's Hostess a week before i sold her to Wink,It was the Best Unretouched picture of a 2yr.old you ever saw,her Head and ever leg was in the right place, even her ears was up, Dixon said it was the easyest money he ever made, didn't do nothing to it. I had it hanging in my Barn Office and someone Borrowed it, and it was the only one i had of her, Jim couldn't find the negetive of it, so i don't have No picture of her, She was the best colt i ever had, and might have been the best horse i ever had
____________________________________________________________________________________________

BigEd

I watched Gray work her many times. She could do as much as the picture of Delight of Pride. But was deeper and a little more strain.
Eddie
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett



Who's Dis?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Jean

That would be HALL ALLEN
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Jean
By Golly you are right, its Hall Allen, i thought that might be a tough one
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Bubbadog

I think that you may have trouble fooling Jean - she's pretty sharp!
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Bubbadog, I think you are right, that girl pretty smart, i will see if we can fool her every once in a while
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Looks like Teddy Roosevelt ... is that a hunting party or the Rough Riders?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

I don't know Rambler, but its not Teddy
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Rambler

Wow. No kidding. Sure looks like him. I'd a bet money, too.

Well, I think I can safely say that it's not Elvis.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

There was a famous country-western song written about the rider above, it was performed by Willie Nelson & Merle Haggerd and written by Townes Van Zandt.

Now you gotta name the person AND the song!
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Jean

I knew it was Hall Allen , because i have a picture of him since he is in my champagne horses pedigree. I try to get every one i can find. Welcome to our wacky world Rambler.

Thanks, Jean. It's great to be here. I'm having lots of fun.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Larry

I believe the person "leading the charge" is Francisco Villa, better known as Pancho. TR, likely, would have been bespectacled.
Did Danny Forrester have Delight Of Pride as a younger horse --perhaps as a two y/o?

larry
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Larry,

You get the prize! That is indeed Ole Pancho Villa in his better days. The country song was "Pancho & Lefty" of course. As for Delight of Pride, I do believe he was started by Danny Forrester, maybe Everett will know for sure.

Glad you made it on here and I promise I won't ask you if you have another brother named Darryl.....
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Larry You are right, Danny Forrester did Break Delight of Pride as a 2 yr. old.
And Welcome aboard

That is Margaret on Bama Bum B - Susan Hunter raised him - by Bumming Around out of her old pony Little Egypt who was by Merry Go Boy - he was a sporty little fellow and his purchase instigated lots of drama for years and years!

About Star of Tullos.
His original name was Ace's Superstar(one of the best 3 year olds i've ever seen). He was bred by Lamar Nash Buford ,Ga.and out of a Spirit of Midnight mare that he bought at the Sugarloaf Farms dispersal sale. Charlie Daniels bought him as a colt and later sold him to Mr.Lowe who changed his name.

Grits,

According to MANY sources, the hotel is one of the most haunted places in the state of Tennessee. Believe what you will, but I have looked up some info on that subject and have heard it was used as a hospital for soldiers during the Civil War. I have also heard one room in particular is extra-haunted. Here is a link to more info in the Times-Gazette:

http://www.t-g.com/story/1286155.html
__________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Grits,

It was built after the Civil War & there haint no sech thangs as ghostes.
__________________________________________________________________________________________

grits

Sadlbum, after reading that story smitty found I would keep an open mind. There may not be ghostes but there is some spirits in that ol place an I ain't talkin bout the ones you drink...
__________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Grits,

It is important to separate what is myth and what is fact concerning these stories about ghosts, UFOs and even Bigfoot. Sadlbum is probably right about the hotel being built after the war, so those rumours about it being a Civil War hospital are obviously false. However, I think there have been enough reports of strange occurences at the hotel to say there is indeed may be be some sort of repeating phenomena going on there.

I have seen enough strange things in my days to know better than to rebuke and scoff at those who claim to have seen strange things. All it takes to change your point of view on these things is something strange happening to you just ONE TIME. We like to thing as human beings that we are the highest form of intelligence there is and that we have the answer for everything, but we are fools to think that way. There are not logical explanations for everything and we should keep an open mind.
__________________________________________________________________________________________

Well, it is really a cool place BUT I don't think anyone wants to see me runnin' down the interstate in my P.J's in the middle of the night (I spook easy and I am skeert of the dark) so I will visit it in the day and maybe have lunch there when I go to the Celebration this year.
__________________________________________________________________________________________

Guest

Grits,
Had to laugh If you go running down the interstate in your night attire from the Walking Horse Hotel, in beautiful downtown Wartrace, you will have been frightened beyond belief. It is several miles from the hotel to the interstate. Sorry, just couldn't resist
__________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Grits,

If you git spooked you can call Mason to come pick you up. He don't live too far up the road.

The absolute strangest stories of paranormal activity I have EVER heard of come out of UTAH. I was out there a few years back and it is indeed a strange, but also oddly beautiful place. Has anyone ever heard of the Gorman Ranch up in northeast Utah? If you haven't, let me say that the strange activities up there are both so BEYOND BELIEF as to be unbelievable, yet at the same time, so well-documented that it cannot be refuted that something very, VERY ODD is going on there. This is some of the strangest stuff you will ever hear about....

Read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skinwalker_Ranch

Grits did you really fall? You okay? I don't think that the ghost pushed you - did you do something to make it mad? Just tell it to go on and it probably will - unless it's mad.
I don't remember ever seeing horses shown in anything other than white girths - ya'll remember WHITE shoe polish and canvas girths? Boy shoe polish came in handy in a show barn didn't it? How many uses can we come up with for shoe polish?
Remember the colored girths that matched the breatstraps? Now that was a BUTT ugly fashion - I think that I showed with one a couple of times that was black.
__________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Those CANVAS girths got me by in my early years of showing pleasure horses. That white shoe polish would make em kind of STIFF wouldn't it? Later on I showed with a girth that matched my headband (white/red center).

THOUGHT it was pretty cool back then!

(hit don't look so good now.....)
__________________________________________________________________________________________

Yes Bubbadog I did, ker splat off the step onto the concrete floor. I am bruised and sore but that too shall come to pass. My husband said if he could replay my thought pattern there was a horse thought involved and I wasn't paying attention, my father welcomed me to the golden years (mine will be known as the rusty ones) and my sister-in-law wants to get me the HELP I'VE FALLEN and CAN'T GET UP BUTTON...
__________________________________________________________________________________________

BigEd

I remember those matching girths, breast straps. They were butt ugly.
Had a customer who bought a yellow/white set for his horse. I hated it and would take his horse to shows without em. He would ask where they were and I would say I forgot them. That only worked for awhile and eventually I had to use them. I throwed them in when we sold the horse.

This is alledgedlly F38 (see Voice april 94 page 44), I argued with Charles Brantley one time that this wasn't the same horse that his Dad French had his picture taken on ( see Voice may 94 page 34), but He said that this was when the horse was a younger animal. I don't believe this was F38 either. Are you wanting someone to say this is Brooks Allan? The house could have been where the Brantley's house stands now, or some where in the Noah community.
__________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Sadlbum,

We don't really know what horse this is, and I'm not sure it's ever really been proven for sure. According to the info on WWest, this photo has been the source of much disagreement for many years.

Personally, I don't think it's F-38 either. The hocks are too straight and the markings don't quite match up on the front legs in my opinion. I looked at a number of horses I THOUGHT it might be, but the markings don't seem to match on the front legs of any of them.

All good guesses, but not correct. (kinda looks a little like Woody Allen to me!??) But this gentleman died in the 70's and left his mark on the Walking Horse World OUTSIDE of the show ring.

Everett, All the Bobo children learned to ride on Hill and he taught others as well. He was a great teacher! I remember after we decided not to show him anymore Mr. Perot wanted Bill to keep him a year and just use him at different shows and events. He wanted Hill to be an ambassador for the Walking horse. One of the places he was asked to attend was the MTSU homecoming game.........He was great until he saw those lines and then he would give a little bunny hop over it.LOL He carried the flag at many shows that year.
He is buried in Mr. Perot's front yard. Ross,Jr. named his business after Hill.

Something about it looks very old-timey..........or is it just the hat?

Graymare

I remember one of the horses that he had was sort of a different color. I think the name was Le Baron de Bastrop. That horse was sort of a light brown color (not sure what to call it...not sorrell or chestnut or palomino) and he had a grayish mane and tail. That might not have been a natural color though, since you know "in the day" often the color of the poodle, the mane and tail, and the lady's hair were dyed to match.

Who's Dat
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Stringbean, also known as David Akeman was from Anneville, Kentucky, up in Jackson County. He was an old time banjo picker and used to broadcast on WLAP out of Lexington. He was a member of Bill Monroe's outfit in the old days. He and Grandpa Jones were regulars on Hee Haw for many years where Stringbean was noted for his bewildered expression and self-deprecating remarks.

Stringbean's life came to a tragic end when he and his wife were murdered by burglars who had broken into their house in Nashville.

Here's some more info on Stringbean:

Rambler

That reminds me (thanks, Graymare)... way back when I was a kid, I saw a walking pony of a color that I can't place. Even though that was <cough>ty years ago, I never forgot what this horse looked like. (Forgive me for using non-horse terms) -- like a palomino but with a silver mane, a bronze-colored coat with a dapple print to it. Kinda like a Rocky, but with that dapple pattern on the haunches. I've seen Shetland ponies that color. No photos, but I remember it was in a walking pony class. I only saw it at one show -- the Owen County Fair. So, I reckon this is a "What's Dat?" question.

I don't know the Mag. or who took the picture, my guess would be Sargent,This Horse sired a Great 15.2 horse that has won multi blues at the celebration,that background looks like it was taken at Mr. Sam's place, thats the kind of fence he had at his stable
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

I have just talked to my good buddy, who told me to guess Midnight Ike on the other picture. He told me this was Midnight Bomb. He would be kin to Ebonys Midnight Bomb & Bombs Ballyhoo. With the bug eyes that was Sargents trademark. He took EBS picture that was on March 62 Voice, the first one.
My friend said IKE was alledgedlly the sire of GO BOYS BIG SHOT.
He knew Percy Moss & said, He trained Racking hosses in the 60's & 70's in Arkansas, had a son named Sonny that did too. He described Percy the same way that I've heard Marvin Wilson described. He said Percy died sometime in mid to late 70's. If he was 25ish when he won the WGC, that would put him at about 45 or 50 at death, purty young!
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Sadlbum
You have a Very Smart friend, that is Midnight Bomb, I was thinking That 15.2 Bomb horse that Ronald Young had was by Midnight Bomb, then again he might have been by Ebony after thinking about it, wasn't his name Ebony's Midnight Bomb.As for Percy Moss i had heard the same thing
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Ebony's Midnight Bomb's maw was more than likely by Midnight Bomb.

Everette & or Mason, which of Steve Hills horses did you help train? Have you ever been seriously hurt while working with horses? What men did you work with while at Steves? Did you ever come to Manchester very much? Were the walkers & cavisons valuable tools in working with the horses? Did you ever meet Billy Duncan or Dwain & Harriette Clark some of Steves longest running customers? Have you heard of EEF Hoover that bought Wilson Allen with Steve just before the old Horse died.

My wife & I went to Church in Hillsboro a few Sundays ago & afterwards went to the only Cafe in Pelham & while going there, saw a Wilson Allen Lane, Thats where Mr BF Wilson lived that the old Hoss took his name from. (in this area we have roads named after Brantleys, Henry Davis & Floyd Carothers also)

I was just a kid when my dad worked for Steve, I broke colts there when i was about 10 yrs. old and worked after school and summers until i was about 15, I remember 5 Mins. to Midnight and Talk of the Town, Spirit of Midnight and Hills Perfection, when i was a kid Manchester was a long way from home for us, went to the fair there when growing up, we moved to Steves from Mr. Brantleys when i was about 7 or 8 yrs. old.Yes Walkers and caversions were VERY Helpful when i was growning up, i do remember Billy Duncan and The Clarks, but don't remember a lot about them and also mr. Eeef HooverI went for 35 yrs. training with out getting hurt, then in 1995 a horse fell with me and messed up 2 Disc in my lower back and had to quit riding, still miss it today as much as ever
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

I think riding horses is good for muscular disorders in the back, but the spine is a different issue altogether. One of my brothers inlaw had disc surgery & it did him a world of good. But I've heard of others that it didn't help at all, maybe even made them worse. I remember my inlaw stepped over a log to retrieve his ball while playing golf & his back went out. He layed flat on his back in the bed of my truck, while I hauled him back to Woodbury from Manchester. He lost the use of one of his legs until he had the surgery. I've had some back or shoulder problems as of lately, but its better, after going to just one pillow. I also try to walk at least 2 miles per day, even when its cold, like now. I used a throw away painting mask over my nose & mouth yesterday.

I think the rider was J.B. Smith, Looks like he won a stake class at a big show, I'll guess the horse was either Go Boys Big Shot or Suns Big Shot.
This horse, in picture looks a Blue Roan & I think thats what the Go Boy Horse was. I agree the man looks sorta like Benvis, but he never won anything in that big a magnitude. My next guess would be Winston Wiser on Go Boys Souvineer.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Thanks to Mason for the photo.


____________________________________________________________________________________________

You'ins, Look how long Souvineers natural feet & the shoes are. There appears to be a wedge between the hoof & shoe. This would show the coming of pads in 56.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
smitty

Interesting bout the pads.

I have several questions. Did the breed start out using only ONE pad? How did the pads progress?

Also, had the Industry EVER had a LIMIT on number of pads that could be used? I know they had a rule on angles/wedges. That may be a stupid question, but I forget....

"Let's get down to brass tacks." By the way......

(missing image)

Who Dat?
____________________________________________________________________________________________
BigEd

About pads. I know that Tennessee Rebel had two flat pads (leather) when he won the gelding WC in 1950. Other than the 50% rule that is in effect currently. I remember sometime in the early 80's they made the rule that you could have a maximum of 4" of pads. Maximum shoe thickness of 1/2". The 1" HEEL/TOE ratio has been around at least 38 years. The 1" Heel/Toe ratio was abolished for one show season as part of the interim rules that the govt. established the year Judge Gash took the pads when the trainers show was shut down. Maybe 87/88??

Big Ed, Did Bob Hughes ride Tn Rebel & did he disguise the leather pads or spacers? He was also a Farrier. I was'nt around then but I could imagine that a few started using pads & winning with them & then the whole industry going with them. Shadow won in 55 without them & with them in 56.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Harold Wise is the rider
____________________________________________________________________________________________
BigEd

Sadlbum,
Bob Waggoner rode Rebel. He carried 5# lead in one foot and 6# in the other. With long hooves, you can hull them out real good. The purpose of the pads were to hold the lead in the hoof and to accomodate a longer shoe. They were interested in hiding the lead. Grandad told me that most horses had at least one leather very early on. It was considered a big deal when Go Boy won with a keg shoe.

"In memory of Merry Boy
1925-1958
Sire of WGC Black Angel
Sire of WGC Merry Go Boy
Eight times WC; Two times WGC
Sire of Merry Walker, dam of Go Boy's Shadow and Rodger's Perfection
Final home in Jackson, TN Owner George Williams

Senator69 & Bubbadog,
You folks are correct, that is Charlie Martin. That photo was sent in by Mason.
___________________________________________________________________________________________
 
Bubbadog

Do you know who the horses are? The dappled one looks like the pony that Larry won the Celebration on - Echo's Little Man.
___________________________________________________________________________________________
 
Bubbadog

Sadlbum - tell me about your little spotted horse's pedigree.
___________________________________________________________________________________________
 
senator69

Bubbadog,I think your right.i should know some of these horses,I used to stop over and watch him ride and just hang out a lot.Larry and I are still friends .Hadn't seen him in years and a friend of mine told me where he lived so I always stop and see him and Lindsey when I'm in S'ville.
___________________________________________________________________________________________
 
Bubbadog

Senator 69 - tell them that Cissy says howdy
___________________________________________________________________________________________
 
sadlbum

Bubbadog,
!/2 old SHEP & 1/2 WELSH type spotted pony. His sire was a red roan TWH named Gallant Sensation & the dam was a big common spotted pony. He was 14-1 & big boned. Fox trotted but had a short lope as smooth as silk. Would go any where you asked him. Would work double or single. He's still alive at about 25 yrs, but I don't own him now, but saw him from a distance the other day. I had him reg in the nat'l spotted assoc. & still have the papers somewhere. Entire bot. side are unknown.
___________________________________________________________________________________________
 
Jean

Sadlbum, that is one pretty spotted horse. Pedigree or not.
___________________________________________________________________________________________
 
sadlbum

Thanks Jean,
Before I had him fixed, he sired a colt just like him, but he got 14-3 & paced. They looked like 2 peas from the same pod. I worked them together to a wagon in parades. My wife rode the young horse mostly. When I sold them, the older horse was 17 & the younger was 14. I don't know where the young horse is now, but when I sold him, no one had ever shod him but me. Sometime I might put their picture on the blog.

Smitty, I got the photographer correct & would say the picture is early to mid 60's. I'm having to LOG on most every time, the AUTO is not working very well now!
I think Everetts guess of Rockabye Lady is a goodun. I would add to that Charles Martin.

Mason,
I will make an edicated guess, its not Jane Hardy, but it could have been Marianne Gray Leach. Is that a Flowering Crabb or a Dogwood tree?
____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
Bubbadog

Lord have mercy Sadlbum - Jane ain't that old - I know that I've seen the picture before but I have no idea who it is - I used to have a horse that looked just like that - bought him from Fred Phillips in Shelbyville - by Hank Snow - could stroll - strawberry roan was very popular with the field trial crowd.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
smitty



Sadlbum guessed correctly, it's Marianne Leech. (Gray)
What a wonderful old photo. I love the color in this shot.
That is definitely a crabapple tree.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
scooter

I think there is a strong possibility that the tree in question could be a flowering cherry. The blooms look large for a crabapple, but it is hard to tell from the photo. This post was more about seeing if I'm logged in as scooter. The tree is just an excuse.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
smitty

Scooter,

After taking a second look, I believe you are correct.......I think it is a Flowering Cherry as well. Nice trees..........they just don't bloom long enough do they?

Glad you made it back on here Scooter.

Probably the same knocker boots worn by Ebony in 62 & I think this Boys Pappy worked for Sam at the time, or mebbe this other Boys Pappy owned Ole Eb. First guess is Larry Martin & second guess is Kenny Hale.

Jimmy McFarland ?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett is correct, Jimmy McFarland is the rider.

Do anyone know the HOSS? (had something to do with his color)

There were 18 Carbon Copy yearlings in the first GLL Production Sale. They were prepared for the sale by a teenage Bill Bobo. In addition to Call of the Wild & Ides of March, Copy's Record went through the sale. Anybody remember who showed her as a 2 yr. old?

J.H. Thompson [Kathy & Vickie Lynn's grandfather] showed Merry Walker in the early 40's on the Southwest circuit. Mr. Thompson made quite an impact at the first Murray Farm Sale. Anybody know what that might be?

Well since a few of you out there would have only been about 3 yrs. old I will give you the answer to my question.
The year was 1964 and Carbon Copy had just won the WGC.,as folks were leaving Buddy Hugh brought in Go Boys Royal Heir and put him on exhibition for all to see.He and Toby figured that was a way for alot of people to see him at one time.The announcer even talked a little about him and said that he was for sale.I was working for Buddy and Toby at the time and it is just one of those memories that you never forget.

You might recognize the horse van in the background in the first photo. In the second photo you might recognize the person on the right, who is a stocky young fella with red hair who ha$ ridden some gooderns in his day...

Yes, that is Buddy Mason in both photos. The horse is Clutch's China Doll, which Buddy showed in the juvenile class I think. Also that is Kim Mason and David standing behind her on the rail. The photo was taken in 1982. I believe I was boarding at Jumbo's at that time, although I wasn't present when these photos were taken.

Here is Buddy's band whose name (correct me if I'm wrong, Mason) is

"OUT & RUNNIN"

Everett....how about King of The Alamo or Blue Eagle?
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
 
sadlbum

This picture(really a Painting after Les Nelson got thru retouching it)was probably done between 54 & 62. Cotton Ginner & King of the Alamo were from the 40's. Notice no pads or boots or swivelized shanks.

ONEHOTMARE

I'm trying to describe the photo to Kathy right now. She's thinks it's Shadows Headman too.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

I think Sadlbum got it Everett.

Shadow's Headman was a divisional two-year-old champ, according to the source and reserve two-year-old champion in 1959.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
 
Everett

Sadlbum and Onehotmare
It is Shadows Headman
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
 
ONEHOTMARE

Sadlbum...Is that a near hind sock or fetlock? I can't really tell.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
 
sadlbum

OneHotMare,
I can't tell. Les Nelson could take a picture of a trail Horse that couldn't step over a corn cob & make it look like this Horse, after he painted in new ears, mane, tail, front & rear legs. Probably the only ligitimate untouched things are Vic & the animals torso. This Horse never made it as a big time aged Horse, reckon what happened?
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett...Kathy and Marilyn said to thankyou! They aren't able to get on line right now, but hope to join you soon. Les was long before my time Sadlbum, but I have always heard that.

I had forgotten about that picture til Sadlebum brought it by here yesterday for me to post...I KNEW who it was, but am not going to tell for a while. It is a mare. I think one of the best pictures of a WH I have ever seen. WHY did WE ever try and make them look like freaks...this was enough...and I think more pleasing to the public...I'm as guilty as anyone but hindsight is 20/20

Toby's Picture,

Sadlbum

Anyone,
I'm curious about the curb chain & bit or hackemore setup on the bridle, hows about someone explaining it to me. No wonder alot of people are turned off by the performance TWH, just size up that package on the horses right front foot. The enormity of it would turn anyone off. That horse is hitting a good lick & I like it, but we still have to be concerned with John Q Public.

sadlbum

That is a Shanked Bit With a Over check snaffle bit also
____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
ONEHOTMARE

You got it right Everett. Ramsey took a piece out of that bit so it would be legal and yes, they do check them. The package is also legal. That mare had to go back thru USDA during Celebration 2005 and 2007 and I'm proud to say she is USDA approved. This shot was from the 2005 International. I'm sorry if she appears to be bad image but apparently the judges didn't think so. We were reserve at this yrs Celebration and I'll take a reserve there anyday.

Graymare

OHM - Both you and the horse are beautiful and very well presented. You deserved your wins and looked great in the process! The only thing that might make it better is to have "Brother Kitty" sitting in the seat beside you. Somehow, that thought makes me want to burst out loud laughing!! I can just see the expression on that cat's face!!!!
____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
sadlbum

OneHotMare,
I'm sorry if you read a bad image into my comments, because I said nothing of the kind. In fact I said that "I" liked it. I meant nothing negative about the Hackemore type setup with the Bits, I'm just not familiar with it. I am concerned about the publics perception of the enormous buildups. Just take a long hard look at that Right front foot with & open mind.

Tell Ramsey i said Hello, I met Ramsey back in the 60's when i was training in Brookneal Va.and he lived in Altavista Va., are you related,He was also a great Horse Trainer, put a lot of walk in all his horses, glad he don't have to ride them now, didn't Ramsey have a bad back, thats why i quit riding, i had two back operations myself,and can't ride anymore

ONEHOTMARE

Sadlbum....I'm sorry I misinterpreted your post. I thought you were implying that her package may not be legal, but now I understand. I appreciate your kind comments, as well as the others that posted. This mare does have those draft horse size hoofs and I think the angle of the shot had alot to do with it. You should see her standing in the cross ties along with my trail horses. My spotted colt wears 00 drill techs and the other 0's, so you can imagine what a sight that is. I agree the HSUS and others will never stop until we give up the pads and chains. This industry has cleaned up it's act so much over the past few years. The compliance rate is great, horses are free going, but they continue to harass us because a few hairs are missing. I could go on and on, but this is suppose to be about trivia, so I'll shut up for now.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
ONEHOTMARE

Ramsey said hello too! I knew ya'll were in Va at the same time and if it was in the 60's then you and he must have been about 6 or 7 at the time. haha. No, Ramsey said you and him were about the same age. Ramsey and I were married last July by Chris Bobo. Infact, we were married at Bill and Connies barn. I purchased my first TWH at Bobo's in the late 80's, but I never dreamed that oneday I would be marrying Ramsey there. I'm sure it surprised everyone else in the horse world, as well. Ramsey had one back surgery but his main problem is arthritis. The riding didn't bother him as much as the constant getting up and down and working on feet. Ofcourse now the trainers have to spend as much time keeping the feet clean as they do in the saddle. I honestly don't know how the older guys do it.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Sheila, it was a honor for Bill and I to stand up with you and Ramsey.
It was such a lovely day for a beautiful wedding.

What a pleasure it was for us to have your wedding behind the barn near the riding ring with all the flowers and trees.....the mares nearby in the pasture...it all seemed so appropriate and so lovely.

Bill and I love you both and wish you the very best life has to offer.

Congats Sheila
Ramsey is a good one, we have been friends since the 60's althought i haven't seen him in years , always had a lot of respect for him as a person and a fellow trainer.When I have first met ramsey i seen him take just an average horse and turn it into a top horse and whoop the daylights out of everyone, then he started getting some Good stock to work then he Really whooped up on everybody.

OneHotMare,
I've just read Your last post & I also hope that We understand & appreciate one another. I do respect Yours & Everyone on Heres feelings. Sometimes on this Blog with so few People, things tend to get to be a stalemate. No comments & no dialogue. I don't know You & I thought the Mare looked fine. I wanted to comment & struggled with something to say. Sometimes I say things, that I regret 5 minutes later, I said something the other day concerning Masons that I regret. I have been around the spectator side of the TW Performance Horse since the mid 60's & I totally agree, great strides have been made by the Trainers in presenting a more sound animal. With that said, Lets continue to enjoy Who Dat?

That was one of my all-time favorities. Do you have the photo of him side by side with True Grit??? That was right before he broke. One of my ALL-TIME favorite Celebration memories. I just really liked this horse and rider.....a classy, good-looking team I thought.

I Braced his tail that year at the celebration, he had a crooked tail bone and hard to brace, but a walking son of a gun,i'm thinking Mizzous Threat was his Reg. Name, Albert was showing him under Threats Cold Sweat and the Breeders said he had to show him under his Reg. Name, are thats what i remember that happening
Everett
____________________________________________________________________________________________
smitty

I believe you are correct Everett. Has anyone seen the photo of Mizzou's Threat & Ebony's True Grit side by side and step for step??? This photo used to be displayed in either World Champion or Blue Ribbon horse equipment in Shelbyville. I think it is one of the greatest Celebration action shots ever taken.

I would KILL to have the picture.......

What was even better than the photo was seeing them in person as they came down the rail side by side and in PERFECT UNISION..........both horses timed up together in absolute precision. Never have seen this since that time.

I remember that so well, even though I was just a kid and that was my first Celebration. Too bad Mizzou broke.........

(I've heard the umbrella conspiracy theory, but don't know if it has any merit or not. Anybody know the TRUTH?)

Everett, do you remember Randall Albert and Oneida"s son? He is in a Nashville hospital and has been in crtical condition.He had a blood clot and had surgery so he would not lose his leg.

Is the picture Mason up on Copyrite?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Didn't take you folks long to get that one.

I thought this one might be tough, since Copy's Night Train & Double Clutch could easily be confused for this one. I think this was the horse Paula Potter showed if my memory is working today.

Mason, why did Paula quit showing? Also, didn't Scott have a brother named Mitch? Seems like he may have shown a little as well??

Also, didn't a girl named Lisa show Night Train out of your barn. I think I met her once't.

......and what kind of hat are you wearing in that photo??
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Bubbadog

Connie - I used to know Randall well - I'm sending a prayer for his recover. That is a shame. What about Renita? Do you know where she is?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Mason

Paula did show COPY RITE.won a Juv class at THE Celebration..Paula is married and lives in Lexington.
Mitch is the oldest...he and his baby bro Tom are in the mine business I think..also think they do some building?...Mitch also has some kind of business in Lexington...I think maybe sells 4 wheelers,etc...its near Man Of War Blvd I THINK...they ALL showed when they were young but lost the desire as they grew up and got interested in other things.
Lisa Bowman Showed Copys Night train....
And the HAT? Just another silly thing I have done in my life....it was called a Gambler Hat....Looks kinda Silly now doesnt it?I've got an ole picture of Copy rite,that HAT and I winning a class at Montgomery Ala somewhere around here...I look like I just got out of jail.

Thanks man for polishing my EGO! I dont go anymore but do see pictures now and then..I just cant believe how MOST of those fellers ride ..they hump up like the they are trying to hide ...taint the way I came up... part of showing was trying to make the horse look good by the way you sat in the saddle...if I were an owner nowdays I'd HUNT til I found someone who tried to SHOW a horse to his best advantage...but I dont believe many of them know the difference....Time changes everything..I see that the older I get

I know what your saying David.I feel the same way.One of my first owners that help bring me up was Red Gochneur.He told me something along time ago that I've never forgotten."If you want to sell a $100,000.00 horse you gotta look like a $100,000.00 man".That is just the way Red did business.My theory is you've got to at least look like a professional.

I may be wrong, but I don't think Mason was the only one to wear that style of hat, although he may have been the first or one of the first.

I seem to remember Ron Curkendall, Bennie Johnson & maybe one of the Carters from East Tenn wearing a similar style hat. Mike Oppenheimer has also worn some different style hats as well I think, although I'm not sure about Mose. I also have seen that style worn up here in Ky by some Racking Horse folks.

I could be wrong, because all I have left to work with is FADED MEMORIES.....???

There was a bunch of us who got hats like Masons one year. I think around 1980. We bought them at a store close to Pope's Cafe. I showed in mine some and thought it really looked cool. I was training 3 horses for Tom and Fran Gorsuch at the time and Fran told me that if I wore that hat while showing her horse, she would kick my butt.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Yep, it sure was. The store has been closed for several years & the building is empty. I hadn't been on the Shelbyville square in many years until last summer. I noticed that they had a rather run-down display of Walking Horse pictures in the display window of Tip Thompson's. Included was a painting of Toby Green on Spur's Summer Dream. I'm sure it was based on the picture that was posted here recently.

By the way, Sadlbum asked recently who the owner of Shelby Pines Stables was. It was Toby Green.

Deltaboy I thought you were talking about the NAME of our Yard Sale...its hard for me to keep my mind on but one thing at a time...Tip Thompsons RIGHT...

Hey ya'll - my internet has been kaput this afternoon - I would have been able to answer after Mason threw the "Cuz" clue out.
Over the years, I had horses with many different trainers but I'm going to have to say that Wallace is the most entertaining of the bunch. He was constantly doing something to bring a smile - flying through the barn in that golf cart, or riding old Aristocrat like he was actually going somewhere - on rainy days he would hang beer cans in the rafters to mark leaks (he intended to have fixed) in the barn roof - but if he caught you putting more than 4 sets of leg wraps in the wringer washer, he could get kind of testy!

Bubbadog

No - that ain't Joe.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

onehotmare
That is Joe Houck, but not Reflection (snake)hoss,tell Ramsey to think back on some of the horses Joe had
____________________________________________________________________________________________

ONEHOTMARE

Ramsey must be having a "senior moment". Now, he says it doesn't look like the SNAKE hoss, but he's not sure.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Mason

Guess I might better WAIT on that one...
____________________________________________________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Bubbadog

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Its a Flaw in the picture
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Smitty you as good as Les Nelson
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

It is amazing what you can do with this digital stuff. You can truly ALTER reality if you wish, although that's kind of scary as well. Photoshop is the program I use for all the photos and the special effects at times. I have been using it for over 15 years.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Ya'll look up AT the photo's above and see how the trainers of yestaryear sat in the Saddle, WHAT WENT WRONG, I think its in the WATER, DON'T DRINK THE WATER

ONEHOTMARE

"Mr. Glo" was one of Elmores , not sure if it's him.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Its not Mr. Glo
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Elmore is riding MARK OF DELIGHT ,does anyone remember him
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Seems like he may have won a 2 or 3 year old stallion preliminary class?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

(image missing)
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Smitty,
Would that be Amy Lee Marks?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Correct. Name the juvenile horse Amy rode and his color, breeding and describe his general action.....
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Guest

This one is easy and that's Amie Lee. I can even name the one behind her, that's "Reggie" her trail horse. "Dan's Go Boy" was her juv horse and he was gray and white and by Go Boy.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Smitty,
Amy Lee's horse was a chesnut mare by the name of Amy's Eldorado & was raised by my friends Pete & Margaret Anderson of Manchester, Tn. Dan's Go Boy was her brother Woody's horse. Her Mother Amy Boyd showed gaited ponies in the thirties & forties. Her Grandaddy Mr Franklin Boyd owned the Chevy dealorship in Shelbyville & was on the first board of the Celebration.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Sadlbum,

I remember Amy's Eldorado being in the pony class. I also remember Dan's Go Boy being ridden by Amie Lee Marks in the juvenile class, perhaps winning a WC with him (?) Seems like he had a big lick.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Smitty,
I Re-itterate, Woody Marks showed Dans Go Boy, Amy Lee could have too at some time. George Witt was one of his trainers & I think Buddy Hugh was also & I think Jim Gandy from Dallas was the last to show him. Yes he was a great show horse & was Grey. There were 3 other good grey horses of that era, The Shocking Blue, Blue Magic & The Ghost That Walks. Silver Shadows Replica was great but came before them.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Mason
I was talking about that fella with the no. 9 on his back
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Everette,
Steve McNair was no. 9, But he isn't blonde, mustuv been Wayne Hackney or Johny Pucket.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Good try Sadlbum ,but it ain't them guys
____________________________________________________________________________________________

ONEHOTMARE

Didn't Bill wear #9 with THE WHOLE NINE YARDS?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

onehotmare
You are right, its my pal Bill Bobo, one of the nicest and hard workingest horse trainers in the Business
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Everett,
The Whole 9 Yards was one of the best 4 yr olds, I've ever seen, but in My opinion, He slacked off some in his senior year. I remember Him going up the west rail on the reverse when He was 4 & His stride was awesome.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Sadlbum
I never got to see him show, but i sure liked what i saw on the video

cb

Mr. Bradshaw and C.A. were first cousins.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

deltaboy

____________________________________________________________________________________________

deltaboy

That lends credence to the theory that great horsemen are born, not made. Blood will tell!
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Smitty, Deltaboy & Everett,

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Makethecut,

You are correct. She was the daughter of Go Boy's Souvenir and the 1957, 1958 and 1959 Aged Mare Champion.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

(image missing)

Where Dat?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

The Red Mile is right beside Tattersalls - so I'm guessing Lexington KY
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Right-O !!!
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

This horse was the dam of what well-known horse?:



Who Dat?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

deltaboy

Pride of Stanley, dam of Pride of Midnight. The rider is Mrs. Paul Randolph from Clearwater, Fla.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Yes, you are correct on all counts Deltaboy. That mare's genes run in many of the horses showing today.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty



Who Dis?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

deltaboy

That's Percy Moss with Duchess Rene', White Star, & Sun's Texas Gal.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

I don't know how you do it.......???
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett



Who's Dat
____________________________________________________________________________________________

makethecut

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Everett

Makethecut
You are right, you guys are Good
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Anyone,
Who was Gerald Pfister & what did He do? I'll have to take Your word for it, because His name just came to mind.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Pfister was from Baton Rouge Louisana and owned a Shrimp Boat.

True or False.......was Mike's Mighty Delight a Reserve World Grand Champion?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

deltaboy

Yep, in '73.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Correct, I believe he was a 15.2 WC as well...

(image missing)

Who Dat?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

My guess - Ralph Lovett on The Sound of Fury?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Nope.........this was a very brave horse......
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

In my opinion this little horse beat Bum so bad that it ain't funny. Ya'll look it up & see where Bum stood the next spring & you might understand why he won.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

cb

I loved this little horse.....He had a heart as big as any horse I had ever seen.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

His name is " Man of Courage ". I'm not familiar with him......anybody heard of him?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Smitty,
Was that Frank Roper aboard?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

Sadlbum, I have no other info on that horse, other than he is out of Old Glory and by Midnight Sun. By the way, I think the Pfisters really were from Baton Rouge, but I was just kidding about owning the shrimp boat. That was Forrest Gump.



Huh?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum


Smitty,
Of all the pictures that I have seen in the last 40+ years, I've never seen this one & can't wait until I know who both are.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

ONEHOTMARE

I thought maybe Judy Martin, until I saw the yr. She's not that old.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

smitty

This is probably a very rare photo. It came from a auction at the Walking Horse Hotel in Wartrace. It may not be someone anyone here knows.......but then again it may (???)
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Mason

We know the name of the rider .... but not the ponies name.
Although I know her name I don't remember anything about her.She MAY be a sister to a trainer from Mcminnville Tn....BUT I AM NOT sure?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Mason,
With those hints I will do some guessing, Kirby, Upton, Blanks, Marcella Stubblefield & Holder, those are all of the trainers that I know have originated from McMinnville.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Mason

You got her last name...but which one? I doubt we will ever find out that old ponys name
____________________________________________________________________________________________

ONEHOTMARE

Is this lady still living?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

sadlbum

Mason,
I'm gonna, I say I'm a gonna make anuther adjikated gess & say that there gal is Buddy Kirby's sister. There was a WGC pony along about that same time by Merry Boy that Dan Brannan of Belvidere road & a Heinz gal from Selma Alabama also road & her name was Miss Liberty. I know this isn't the same one but they were similar. Gay Girl ridden by Bobby Wiser was also spotted & a WGC.
