I am reading a book that I will review later on this blog, but I could not resist posting this one tidbit.
Apparently one of the performance horses with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, described as “one of the best hoop jumpers,” was named “Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay.”
That NEEDS to be an event horse name, y/y? “Now on course, Boyd Martin riding the Thoroughbred gelding Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay.”
Someone make that happen, ok?
(I’m going to have that song in my head for the rest of the day.)
(these are the kinds of things I think about when I can’t get to the barn, ENOUGH ALREADY, WINTER.)
