I don't have a pic of Donnie May and his wife, Janet, but they are oh so nice....My mare had airway laser surgery at Rood and Riddle a couple of years ago. I was up there alone with BEE and they wanted to put her on the treadmill (now that's a whole 'nother story) and fortunately, one of the veterinary residents was TWH person, Dr Megan Mullis Green, from GA. She gave Donnie May a call; Donnie and Janet brought a bridle/caveson for BEE to wear while treadmill testing....Knowing that I was there alone, they called me the next day and took me along for the ride up to look at horses at Kemp Martins' barn where I enjoyed a barn dinner with them. Genuinely nice folks....along with a feller named Smitty who recommended a camera and gave directions to the local Walmart there in KY...LOL Them KY folks are mighty kind.
Oh, and my current trainer's wife, Amy, is a Kentuckian. Not only is she a great jockey, she might be the best "groundman" ever.

This is WC TWO GUN SILVER DOLLAR with Donnie & Janet May and Evan Alexander, who is Donnie's Grandson and also the rider. This photo was taken a few years back at the big Celebration.

Sammy is one of the coolest dudes I've ever met. Although he has had many ups and downs,I've seen him be at his lowest with not even a barn and a month later have a barn full of horses. He is in my opinion one of the GREATEST trainers to ever throw a leg across ones back.

Yeah, she was pretty good-sized. She was a very stylish-going mare. Could use her legs and wear the bridle. Joyce Datson won a lot of Ladies classes with her up here.

I've been through Dog Walk many times. Sometimes on the way to Lexington via Lancaster and sometimes on the way to Brodhead to the Little World's Fair & Horse Show. Seems like there used to be a feed mill up that way that I used to haul corn for grinding many years ago.

Ain't much in Dog Walk !!! Why do you ask?

I may be going to a show this weekend in Brodhead and I was looking on the map and saw Dog Walk. Never heard of town named that anywhere else.

I haven't been to the Little World's Fair & Horse Show in a very long time, but I have some very fond and very old memories from there.

It is one of the oldest fairs & horse shows in the state, having originated over 130 years ago. While Brodhead is a tiny place (pop. about 800) the fair was once one of the largest in the state. It was really unique, at least at one time. I recall the fairgrounds was mostly wooded, which made for a very different experience walking through the maze of carnival rides, horse and cattle trucks and people; all under a canopy of trees. As a small kid, I remember being surprised at how large it was. It was probably the most country and old-fashioned type fair I've ever seen. I'm sure it has changed quite a bit since then.

I won the Amateur class there back in the early eighties. I distinctly recall the sound of the pleasant applause from the crowd.........much different than what you hear these days. I vividly recall seeing some of the old farmers in overalls I knew as a child standing on the rail and calling my name as I rode by. I remember having to ride around some of the old roots that were growing right out into the ring from some of the old trees that lined the rail. A horse show in the woods is how I remember it.

My Dad's folks all came from a holler just Northeast of Brodhead in Rockcastle County.
That fair & horse show has been in my family for many, many years.
