Mordecai Jones favorite saying was "You can't cheat an honest man". Slim Pickens played a tobacco farmer that M Jones (GCS) cheated out of his crop money with a rubber check in a lost wallet. Henry Morgan (Col on Mash) played a sheriff & chased Jones after he stole a load of moonshine. Walter Matthau played another sheriff.

I love that movie. The court house in Richmond was also in it. Anybody remember what Mordecai's title MBSCSDD stood for?

Bubbadog, I'm not sure The Flim Flam Man is available on DVD, but it is out there on VHS. For some reason, you rarely see this movie on tv, but it appears to be pretty darn good. Here's a sneak preview:

MIB,
That was one of my favorite movies & I have not looked up the meaning to your question, because I remember it. M master, B back, S stabbing, CS CorkScrew, D dirty, D dealing.

Flashback: 1979

Here's a monthy Kentucky column published in The Voice Magazine in May of 1979. Covering the state of Kentucky at that time was Voice Correspondent Deedy Whittamore.



The Make-Up Ring



by Deedy Whittamore

It is never pleasant to report a fire, especially in our industry when it usually means the loss of much-loved animals. The H.E. Powell barn, located in Winchester, Ky was the site of such a tragedy on March 6, at 9:45 p.m. The Powell barn, managed by well-known David and Rebecca Farris, had rented stalls to the public over the past twelve years. When the fire was spotted a neighboring IGA Food Store sent stock boys to assist in saving the horses. Of twenty-five head, eight were lost.
Plans are to rebuild the barn and continue the showing of good horses! Central Ky exhibitors will miss these horses: Shadow's Co-Pilot, a top pony; Bandolero, a previous high point show pleasure horse; Red Pepper, the perfect lead-line mount; horses owned by Paul Merrit and Prater Fisher Jr.; a good owner-amateur horse owned by Velmont Hall; and a walking mare owned by Rick Hall. Also lost in the blaze was a quarter horse filly. The Make-Up Ring wishes Mr. Powell the best of luck as he undertakes the rebuilding process.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Perkins and family on their newly purchased Pride's Generator. The current World Champion Two-Year-Old will be campaigned under the Black Gold banner with Gary Edwards continuing at the controls. Black Gold Stables has rapidly become one of the most respected facilities in our industry, and is owned by one of the most gracious couples!

Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting the Bill Bailey Stables in Russell Springs, Ky. Owned by Bill and Anne Bailey, this is one of the most popular barns in the Kentucky area. Bill can always be expected to have top horses in top shape! Mr. & Mrs. Powell Potts of Bowling Green, Ky recently purchased the five-year-old gelding Plum Right from Carl McWhorter, with Bill and Danny Littrell of Bowling Green as agents. Mrs. Powell plans to show Plum Right in ladies classes this season. Danny Littrell purchased a two-year-old Pride colt from Jimmy Joe Hackett of Carthage, Tn, and in return, Mr. Hackett purchased a three-year-old mare from Wink Groover. This mare has the looks and ability to become a blue ribbon winner, only one amange many that come from Bill's barn.
While I was visiting, Bill rode a sure nuf nice aged gelding that is for sale. This big, black strokin horse is well broke and would be perfect for amateur or juvenile. If you're in the market, don't miss out on this one.
Besides all the buying and selling, Bill still has time to ride. He anticipates his show ring debut of the 1979 season will probably take place at the Kentucky Spring Jubilee. Good Luck!
What a beautiful way to kick off the season with the Kentucky Walking Horse Ladies Auxiliary Kickoff held March 31, in Nicholasville. Kentuckky! Even though the weather put a "DAMP-er" on the outside, it in no way dampened the spirits of over three hundred horse lovers. Wilda Derickson is president of the Ladies Auxiliary which consists of forty-five enthusiastic ladies. This is only the second year for the auxiliary but by the reception it has received, the ladies will continue to play a major role in the Kentucky area.
Between breaks in the rain, a sneak preview of two-year-olds was held. Nine super walking machines braved the weather: 1. Pride's Easter Parade, Herbert Derickson for Harold Sigman 2. Barren's Mr. Fantastic, Herbert Derickson for H.T. Derickson 3. Ebony's Black Sun, Buddy Dick for R. Brown 4. Pride's Lady Rhythm, Buddy Dick for Kenneth Wainscott 5. Another Red Delight, Billy Young for Ms. Betty Bailey & James R. Smith 6. Midnight's Red Chance, Alonzo Napier for Mr. & Mrs. Hughes Benett 7. Triple Threat Jr.. G.L. , Conrad Long for Gene Lowery 8. Sportin Around, Ronnie Vincent for Drakes Creek Stables 9. Curry's Happy Lady, Mike Thomas for Dan Mullins
Barbeque with all the fixins and cakes, cakes, cakes were certainly enjoyed along with entertainment provided by Vernon Rainwater on guitar and Libb Wilson on piano. Later, a film of the 1978 Celebration was shown and the excitement could be felt in the air. This excitement certainly carried over into the auction of many items donated such as lamps, country hams, tack, tires, a coon dog, stud fees, riding suits, cakes, etc. The auction was well received and much money was made.
Here's a remnder to exhibitors in the Kentucky area to give me a call at 606/987-6218 if there is a horse sold, a new horse to enter your barn, or you would like to gab about horses in general. I would like to hear from you and to include you and yours in this column. Until then...............Good Luck in the Makeup Ring!

Here's another old photo from the 70's sent in by Autumn:

Autumn said.....
"The pic of Falcon's T-Bird was from the Carroll Co, KY Fair in probably 77 or 78. I won the Juvenile class and Sharon Ping showed him back that night and won the stake class."

One of my favorite Ky horses was Go Boy's Triple Threat who won won many stake classes up here with Debbie Fields riding. Had great success at the Celebration as well winning several amateur titles and two 15.2 & under championships, one with Debbie riding and another with Bill Bobo in the saddle. Stood at Harlinsdale Farm after retirement from the show ring and threw some pretty good colts as I recall.

His nickname was "Cockleburr".

Interesting note: Jerry Fields started him and in his show ring debut at Nashville, he threw Jerry off in the ring!

Smitty,

I was looking thru my Louisville medical book today for a Dr. who's last name starts with B. I came across Dr. Barrett Bernard. Do you remember him? He and his brother, who is also a Dr., had horses with either Bill Bailey or Danny Hughes. Seems like they had some really good ones.

Yes..........that's Robin. I showed in juvenile (oh.....excuse me......YOUTH) classes with her for several years. At that time she was from Grayson, I believe. I don't remember who trained her horses, but it could have been Mose Oppenheimer maybe. She had a decent horse.........seems like he was roan with stockings and a bald face?

Heck, been so long I can't remember. No the Dr. Bernard doesn't ring a bell, RW.

NEWSFLASH: (dit.dit DIT.dit........dit.DIT.DIT.dit.....)

Ky Rep. Robin Webb wins special election for State Senate seat by a VERY narrow margin.
A former walking horse exhibitor is now a Ky State Senator!

http://www.kentucky.com/263/story/909303.html

Note: Robin is not the first Ky State Senator to show Walking Horses. Some of you may remember Senator John "Eck" Rose from Winchester.


(I'm still trying to remember the name of that horse she showed in juvenile classes. I'm now thinking his name may have had the words "Mischief" and possibly "Major" in it. If any of you Ky folks know for sure, please e-mail me at timmbur@gmail.com)
