I don’t like to brag. OK, maybe I do. A little. At 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sam, my 20-year-old daughter and producer of The BS Show, informed me that The BS Show had climbed to 63rd overall in the Comedy Division on iTunes. First of all, I didn’t realize we were doing a comedy show. I […]
I have a horse show hangover. People who go to horse shows know what I mean. Here it is Tuesday night as I write this and I still haven’t recovered from a week in Des Moines for Shetland Congress. I’ve never quite understood what it meant to be bone tired, but I am sure I […]
I was on Sports Radio 105 the Ticket for about 21 months. I enjoyed doing a show with Superstar Mike Morris for 15 months, and I enjoyed doing a show on my own for six months. It was fun. I did the first installment of The BS Show Monday on The Tom Barnard Network, and […]
As I begin to write this it is 2:20 Sunday morning. Everybody else is packing. I’m writing. Shetland Congress is over. Another one in the books. My family won 11 National Championships, including a win in Classic Roadster Stakes Under. We also won 10 Reserve National Championships, including reserves in Classic Roadster Stakes Over and […]
A water pipe burst near our stalls at Shetland Congress. It burst right above a horse named Water Boy. How’s that for irony? You know what else was irony? The water that cascaded on poor Water Boy was loaded with iron. We’re talking about a different kind of irony now. All irony and irony water […]
We had a baby. Before anyone gets the wrong idea, I did not impregnate Mary again. It is a baby horse, a very miniature Miniature filly. Those little things are amazing. Unlike us humans, they’re walking within moments of being born. Of course, they’ve got a leg up on us. Actually, two legs. It’s got […]
When I was a kid, I would get excited by snow days and holidays. Every kid wants a day off from school, and snow days were good for that, as well as holidays. And on some holidays, like Christmas, you got presents and on others, like Easter, you got candy. As I got older, I […]
Today is not a day for reading. Or ’ritin’ or ’rithmetic. It is a day for relaxing. It is a day for barbecues, boating, hanging out with friends and relatives, fireworks. So, with that in mind, today’s blog post will be short, sweet. Enjoy the freedom this day is all about. Happy Fourth of July!
Someone complained the other day about me linking one of my blog posts to a Facebook page related to Miniature horses and Shetland ponies. The blog post was about a friend who is a quadriplegic and participated in her first horse show since her life-altering accident about 30 years ago. The complainer accused me of […]
As a kid, I lived for the Fourth of July. I still like the fireworks and barbecues and there’s always a blockbuster movie that comes out for the Fourth, and I’m a sucker for blockbuster movies. My problem is, once the Fourth of July is over the summer seems to move along at a faster […]
