Who are Dey

Bonus-Who Dat Guy with the white shirt at the top of this horse's knee
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

hey!..........I know that DUDE..........
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
ONEHOTMARE

Looks Like Bob McQuerry and "The Pusher". Wonder who that handsome dude in the white shirt is?
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
Everett

OHM
You are correct that is The Walking Machine, The Pusher and a real nice fella Bob Mc., that other fella is a nice guy too
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

Bob's a class act.

Got a lot of fond memories of my younger days under his direction. Always calm, patient and confident. Didn't mind putting 3 or 4 juvenile or lady riders in the same class at a show. He showed no favoritism towards any one rider, no matter the price of the horse. He did me a lot of personal favors that he didn't have to do and I'll always be grateful to him for that.

I was very proud of his accomplishments with The Pusher, who is still one of my all-time favorites.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
senator69

Bob's one of the nicest men you'll ever meet.I remember yrs. ago he had a good little mare that put a whoopin on mine and a lot of others butts. B.Major's Annie I'll never forget that mare.She could sure walk a hole in the ground.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
grits

Can anyone tell me what The Pusher's personality was like... I have a Pusher grandson and he is a joker to say the least...
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

Grits,

I was around him quite a bit, and recall he was pretty even tempered which is typical of most walking horses. He was a stud horse, but I don't recall any meanness or him being overly high-spirited. He had plenty of drive, but I remember him being fairly calm. I can say for sure he was a extremely natural and free-going type of horse who did it easily.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
deltaboy

Looks like John Harney in the box. Is that Mr. Cross sitting beside him?
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
Everett

deltaboy
You are correct that is John Harney, i don't know if that is Mr. Cross
____________________________________________________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________________________________________

One on lower right is Buford Pusser.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
sadlbum

My guesses are:

?, Zsa Zsa, Shaw Twin, Winky & Sheila
Wink, Maybe other Shaw Twin, Buford Pusser
Maybe Russ Thompson, ?, ?
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
deltaboy

Is that Tom Moore in the bottom center?
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

All CORRECT so far! Only two remain to be answered. I guess I should have labled these to make this easier.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
cb

The lady in the bottom middle of the picture is I believe is R. Spear's customer . Her last name was Bennett.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

Cbobo,

No, that's not correct, but you do know who that lady is!
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

Here's the answers to those two photos:

The lady in the middle in the red shirt is BETTY SAIN.

The first small picture in the top left is JACKIE BROWN, a fine fell-o and horse enthusiast from Glasgow, Ky. I think he works in center ring during the Celebration now, or something like that. Jackie has shared a lot of laughs with some of us Kentuckians back in the day.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
cb

Really, that's Betty....When was that taken? I would love to visit with her.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
smitty

Cbobo,

I think that picture is on the Walker's West site somewhere, along with a few others. Not sure when it was taken, but probably not recently. I'll see if I can find the link for you.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty



Now, who dat lil' feller?
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
Mason

Tony Kimmons(DR. Kimmons)
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

........only Sadlbum knows the answer to this one.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
ONEHOTMARE

That cute little fellar does resemble Dr. Tony. I also thought he could be Johnny Puckett or Jason Day.

Yeah, Bubbadog. Everett's the straw that stirs the drink! He'll be back soon, I'm sure. Maybe Sadlbum will let us know who dat kid is in the picture.......
In the meantime.....



Who Dat?
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
Everett

I bet thats Joe Webb
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

Welcome back Everett. Joe Webb it is........but who dat hoss?
I still need Sadlbum to tell us the name of that BOY!
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
Everett

I don't know, but sho is purty
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
deltaboy

I believe that is Professional Pride.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
sadlbum

To be honest, I don't know who the little boy is but I would like to know for sure. I've always thought it was Ron John Reed. His dad was a horse trader named Doug Reed who partnered with R.B. Hickey. They were at Wiser Farms alot. The picture was probably taken in 1975 or 76.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
senator69

Didn't Joe have a Perfection horse that looked like that.I can't remember his name.I'm thinking it had the name Dr. or Prescription in it.

I believe Dr's Prescription was black. Joe showed him in the early 60's. I believe this picture was taken in the early 80's, probably at Germantown.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
senator69

Thanks Delta,I knew I'd seen him showing a Chestnut horse that was pretty popular at some point.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

I've been squinting and the best I can figure is Billy Gray and Delight's Bummin Around.

Billy and Delight's Tramp

That is Ken Wulff, but that is NOT My Magic Marker.......

Glad your back and had a great time, its been pretty slow ,guess everyone one is busy over this long weekend, would like to see the stud class at the Fun show if you can find it.

I should know that horse, but just can't place him, pretty sap sucker
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
ONEHOTMARE

Could be THE SECRETS OUT, he had a long mane. Hard to distinguish if he's bay or black but looks like it was at Gallatin.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

Not Secret's Out. This horse is black...
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
Jean

Would that be Billy & Prides Night Prowler?
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
BigEd

Could be Billy on Hostess. A great mare.
Eddie
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

Nope, all wrong including me........the horse actually was liver chestnut. That color looks kind of black when they're wet.

That's Billy Gray up on Delight of Pride, probably at Gallatin, which was his first show under Gray.

Bonus: In what state was Delight of Pride born?

Delight of Pride was foaled in Missouri.

Deltaboy,

That's right. I think the Inmans raised him.
In my opinion, one of the very prettiest WGCs.

The Inman's were customers of ours and Charlie bought him from them.

Carlton is probably one of those underrated trainers that never quite got his due. Hats off to Mr. Pitts, I enjoyed watching him show.


Yep, that's the trainer formerly known as TERMITE!
Anyone know the horse?

Nobody seems to know this one, so I'll give the answer. This one came from our good friend Sadlbum, who sez this is:

Patti Pollack & Delight's Vamp

Where was that presentation shot made made? The guy presenting the ribbon looks familiar. Heading to Columbia show tonight. Links going to debut a 2 yr old Skywatch colt, that we raised and is now owned by Kilgore and Holland.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Looks like it might be in Fl., that ground looks pretty sandy
____________________________________________________________________________________________
Bubbadog

OHM - if you see Link - please send him my love and tell him that I am going to call him the first of the week. Need to talk to him bout something.
That guy in the picture looked familiar to me too.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
senator69

OHM,I'll be looking for that colt on the stream tonite.If y'all see Tommy Williams tell him i said "HEY" and he needs to check this site out when he gets time.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
smitty

Folks,

Of course dat's Mason & Stock winning the stake at Glasgow, Ky sometime back in the seventies. (76 or 77?) Mason's hairstyle has changed quite a bit since that time, but hasn't all of our hair changed just a bit since then?

The guy presenting in the middle is an old friend of our old gang. That's Jackie Brown of Glasgow, Ky. Quite a nice gentleman and hilarious fellow who was a great source of fun and entertainment for us for many years. When they made Jackie, they definitely broke the mold, but "I must say" I do miss seeing Jackie and he was one of the many colorful characters I met during my years in the biz. I think he works for the Celebration during the event each year, perhaps in center ring.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
senator69

Smitty,yes I believe Jackie does work in center ring during the Cele.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
Graymare

Junior, yes, you are correct. Jackie was also working center ring for the Fun Show. He sees that the trophies are ready and gets everyone lined up for the pictures among other things.

By the way, are you able to sign on the Chat tonight for the Columbia show? I can't get on, but I am in Cincinnati. Frankie called me. She can't get on either. I love the Chat and Tommy and Kim are nice, but disappointments come regularly on that site. I just wish they wouldn't advertise if they are not going to carry through. However, I must say that they DO provide a great service to those of us who can't "be there" and the cost is quite reasonable.

If any of you still have a WHReport membership, they are now showing video clips of the classes from some shows as well. It is not live streamed but it does give a chance to see what went down.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
senator69

Patsy,no I can't get on either.I called Kim and she apologized like crazy and said their server went down and they were working on it but that was like 6:30 my time,and I still can't get on.Tommy was at the show so maybe he will have some video.i really wanted to see the Stake Class.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
Graymare

Yes, I did too. It has been so hyped. They have had a great show for the first two nights. I hope tonight went as well. I figured the site was down since I couldn't get on it at all. Poor Kim has probably fielded a lot of calls tonight while Tommy was at the show. Bless her heart! She never gets to go anywhere and she really is a very nice person who tries so hard to please and help everyone. Surely Tommy is videoing. Maybe it will be up tomorrow.

Smitty,
This is the first time that I have been on in awhile & I noticed the picture of aka Slim Pickens a man who was born & raised in California & took His name from the comment made by the production crew chief that He hit up for a job. Another non western that He played in was THE FLIM FLAM MAN with George C Scot. He was a tobacco farmer that Mordeci Jones & His young partner cheated out of His crop money with the lost wallet trick. In the Rodney d**k picture, I believe Gary & Paige Edwards are sitting near the rail.

I don't think so, OHM. He was a stallion champ WAY back in the 40's and he has an interesting name. Kind of obscure, but I thought Sadlbum might know of this one.


Sen69, Mr. Pushbutton is right. Nice horse.......I think I may have posted that one before.???

I think the rider is Wade Stepp but I don't know who the horse is right now.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

The name of that horse is "Locke's Cotton Ginner". He was the stallion champ at the 1948 Celebration. A sorrell, he stood at Vic Thompson Stables and was bred by F. F. Locke of Lawrenceburg, Tn. Owned by Arnold Walking Horse Farm in Indiana.

Sens61,

That's right. The "legend" himself. I went to high school with his girls back in the day. I think this picture was taken at Ellington Center in Nashville, but I can't remember the name of the horse. Mason will probably know.

I was at Freedom Hall the first time Tom won the WGC with "YORKTOWN".

____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
smitty

Sensation61,

I had some help with that one. Many of the photos I post are sent in by Sadlbum, Mason and Jean. I do manage to find some on my own on the internet, but I have no old magazines to scan at present. Feel free to send me any old photos you may have. We are starting to run out.

I'm interested in knowing about your Saddlebred horses. Wasn't one of them a 3-gaited WC? Not many folks have shown both breeds. I have only known a few in Ky who have and am always intrigued to talk to multi-breed exhibitors because they are such a rare breed themselves!

Of course you are correct Sens61. Delightful Society, Three-Gaited World's Champion for the years 1959-1960. Don't know if I know of anyone who's owned WC's in both breeds.

Question: I ought to know this, but how is it determined if a Saddlebred is to be a 3-gaited or a 5-gaited show horse? Is it in the blood, or is it natural ability to rack/slow gait or is it a little of both?

It's bred in them, they just let you know what they need to be, some just have the ability to slow gait & rack more when you shake them in the bridle. You want one that trims well, the finer the better for a walk-trot. Some horses have shown in both divsions plus fine harness during it's show ring career. Our mare wasn't all that fine but she sure was a haint...she was to be my amateur horse the next show season but we had to put her down....and that's another story.

OHM, the only thing I remember about the fire is that my Dad used to help Digby some and he kept saying the electricity in that place was a nightmare waiting to happen. Matter of fact, he got so scared about it that he brought our colt home and sold him. The fire was determined to be electrical if memory serves me correctly. I remember driving home from the show and seeing the embers. It was very sad. I can't remember if all the horses died or if some got out. Connie, do you remember this?
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Yes, I do remember the fire. I cringe when I hear of a barn fire.
However,I do not remember the horses involved.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
Sensation61

I had come back to the Celebration in 72 for the first time since 66 or 67. We went out to see what happened the next morning, NEVER again will I go see a fire that horses are lost...the vision of the mounds that you knew were bodies have never really left my mind. I was thinking it was some of the Fashion Two Twenty horses but am real sure it was Joe Van Clayton...I know a lot perished and can't remember if any surived.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
ONEHOTMARE

Was the barn that burnt on Railroad Ave? SENSATION61...I said the same thing about going to barn fires. I went out to Troy Yokleys the morning it burnt and I pray I never see anything like that again. Connie and Bill were so lucky they had the fire alarm.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
 
Sensation61

OHM It was out 31-41 A North. It's the road to the right after you pass Allen Callaways and cross a concrete bridge. Gregory Mill road I think, the barn was about 1/4 mile downon the left from what I remember. Connie would know as I think you turn left around there to get to her house. They never rebuilt it, on down the road you turn right on Cartwright Road where Spoon (Frank Withersppon) had his barn. I've eaten lots of good BBQ there and I'm sure Majors and most likely Cissy have too.

I remember the fire but I had went back to work for Marvin Wilson and don't remember if Red had any horses out there or not.He could have and that might be where he lost Mr. FTT.I just don't remember.

OHM,

They are already here and they're all over everything! This is not the same Cicada that you hear right around Celebration time, this is the 7-year Cicada.

I've heard they taste like chicken, some say shrimp. Now here's a great option for some of us who are struggling to make ends meet and ain't got our "Stimulus" check just yet:

Southern-Fried Cicada
Catch Cicadas at night before they dry and get hard, dip in egg mixture, coat with flour, deep fry, seasonwith salt and pepper, drizzle honey over them, enjoy. best of all these are high in protein and low in fat!

(kinda look like Crackerjacks don't they?)

She was a juvenile horse in Ky shown by Kay Sparks. Bob McQuerry had her a while, Ronald won the N.C. Championship with her later on.

You reminded me I've got to order Jane Simmons book, she stopped by from FL. on her way to Lexington to do research for it several years ago and spent the night. Eddie Boyd worked for Art at one time. Besides the movie, which he often told me was the beginning and the end of his Hollywood days...too many takes, he hated it. He also was the one that delivered the saddlebred that was given to Pres. Roosevelt way back when.

I still think that's Howard and William wouldn't have been that old in '84. Ramsey will know cause' William worked for him a pretty long time.

Well, you certainly have a good eye OHM, because THE FONZ is riding Ebony's Collector! Sadlbum will have to answer on the photo as to whether it's Harris or Howard.

They are from PA. Mr. Odie is still around but I haven't seen him show lately. His son Bob, and grandaughter Ashley compete now in performance. They have a great 2 yr old filly at Callaways (Black Jack Fantasy) plus several at their barn in PA. Sam McLaughlin (SC) is currently their trainer in PA. RAVENS TOUCH OF CLASS was a top plantation hoss back in the mid or late 80's (can't remember exactly) but I'm sure he was a WC more than once.

Speaking of Holt...On the way back from M'boro yesterday...I stopped by his barn at Spiller Hill...he's just the same ole Holt, spit polished and looking for a sponsor. It was his B-day and we had a lot of laughs about the good ole days...was great visiting with him. Robbie was there and so was Janice...you know Robbie added a lot of flavor to the conversations....

There was a story going around several years ago about a man who got in the Walking Horse business in early December needing to spend $1 million by the end of the year. There was a unanimous recommendation as to how he could achieve that in one move...hire Sonny Holt!
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
Sensation61

That's our Sonny, first class all the way...he's a living legend.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
Everett

Last time i was in Tn. ,i stopped by Sonny's, Janice and Robbie was there, haven't seen those ladies in years. I didn't know Sonny and Jill was not still together, i was talking to Janice and called her Mrs. Cass, then Sonny said thats Mrs. Holt , . Sonny is trying to get on the Site but is having problems like we all did at one time, but he will figure it out one day.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

I sent Sonny directions on how to get on here, but never heard back from him. I think Robbie is already registered here, but haven't seen her since.
Anyone out there who needs help getting on can email me at:

timmbur@windstream.net

I will help all I can.


The horse Ty Irby is riding is Threat's Ebony Flash. I believe this horse is a bay and originated in Kentucky and was started by Billy Jackson. Bob McQuerry had him later on. I used to knock heads with him in the Amateur class and on several occasions in the Stake Class with Bob riding.

Funny thing..........I always beat him in the Amateur class, but he always came out ahead when a trainer was showing him.

hmmmmmm.................

The name of the horse is Ebony's Excalibur.

Excalibur was a WC Amateur horse. He is one of the last Ebony horses alive and is standing in Eagleville I think.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

PLENTY
____________________________________________________________________________________________

I would guess 36 oz, they could make one climb, if they had any climb there

Smitty seems to me he sold for 226,000 at the time
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
ONEHOTMARE

It must have been a struggle for Judy and SHADES to accomplish what they did. SHADES developed a bacterial infection April '76 and nearly died, but Judy nursed him back to health. Then another setback happened during early part of the Celebration 1976. SHADES threw a shoe and part of a hoof. Judy credits a farrier and his skill for being responsible that SHADES could show. Anyone remember this farrier? He reportedly worked from 12:30 a.m. until 4:00 a.m. replacing the shoe.

E...that was alot of MOOLA back then
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
Everett

ohm
I think the farrier was John Smyth, John shod for them for years
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
senator69

E,yes and he was also one of the best.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
ONEHOTMARE

No, the farrier was LeRoy Rogers. I do agree with you on John being one of the best and he shod at Martin's for many years. His son "Smitty" is now one of the top farriers in middle TN.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

I never heard of of Mr. LeRoy Rogers, I thought i knew all the Blacksmiths in that area ,he might be kin to Roy Rogers

One horse Mr. Bud rode that nobody's mentioned was Yankee Delight. Pretty good horse, but not quite WGC material I guess. I don't know whatever happened to Yankee......

I think he went on to be a top Am. horse if I'm not mistaken.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Smitty...he's by Gen's Way High Willie and out of a Jubilee Star mare. He is a nice horse (not great) but has a BIG BIG motah. Chad Ways been working him for a few months now. He needs to be a gelding and I believe oneday, he will make some youngster a top juv horse. I was lookin' forward to showing him, but noway, until my cracked ribs heal.

Big'n,

You got it right on the nose. Pusher's Benny Boy and Wallace Brandon, who I THINK may have showed at the very first Celebration in 1939, or at least I think I heard that somewhere. That would probably make him the oldest person still showing.
____________________________________________________________________________________________

Wallace is 75, i was talking to Paul Smith over the weekend, we were talking about all those guys, Paul is 85 and said wallace was 10yrs. younger than him.

OHM & DB,

That is indeed Man O' War and Mr. Will Harbut. Here's another photo taken of "de mostest hoss" at age 22 near Lexington in 1939. I could almost agree with Mr. Harbut on "de doiby".

That was Gus Blanchard on Pride of Panola. Pride of Panola became an outstanding breeding horse in Mississippi. He stood at Mr. J. Mack Jones' farm in Port Gibson, Miss.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
smitty

Thanks for the info DB. I thought the gentleman's name was Blanchard, but I wasn't sure. Here's another photo of Pride of Panola and some info on him I found elsewhere. He was quite a nice-looking animal.



"We want to quote here from a February 1980 Voice article on Pride of Panola (by Larry Gribble):

“Another factor which Pride had going for him was his outstanding beauty and the ability to pass it on. Pride will be remembered as the one horse that sired the most beautiful of all Tennessee Walkers. No other stallion has passed on the ability to “wear the bridle” quite like Pride of Panola.”

In the Voice of March 1977 we found a reprint of text from March 1967 on Pride of Panola:

“This sire was especially loved by Southern Mississippians. During his show career Pride never wore heavy shoes, boots or chains and from this he was noted as being one of the few “natural” walking horses.”
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
ONEHOTMARE

Ramsey considered Larry Gribble to be one of the most knowledgeable judges of TWH flesh, ever.
___________________________________________________________________________________________

deltaboy

I spent a lot of time with L. Gribble over the years, from the time he had a silver blue Thunderbird with a chauffeur to the times he was living out of his beat-up Mazda. I remember introducing him to some WH newcomer one night by saying he "knew more about WH pedigrees than any man living or dead". Grib's reply was... "another useless skill...perfected"!
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
Sensation61

Gribble was a dear friend, I to spent a lot of time around him...a mind like a steel trap when it came to walking horses, oh, the tales he could tell.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
deltaboy

I believe he literally had a photographic memory. He was the most colorful character I ever encountered in my life!
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
sadlbum

Deltaboy,
Welcome back, if You don't mind tellum about, according to Gribble, full brothers ain't always bookends.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ 
deltaboy

When someone was extolling the virtues of full brothers [Gold Coin & Genius in this case] one time, Gribble replied "full brothers don't mean nothin'. Hell, look at me & Junior"! [Clinton Gribble, Jr. weighed about 180 pounds, was solid as a rock, & didn't talk much, either.]
