A stable full of imaginary horses

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.)


  1. In my imaginary barn I have a bunch of bay Morgans, named Chesapeake, Penobscot, Machias, Kennebeck and Muscongus. And also a pile of Section D Welsh Cobs who are all berries; Cloudberry, Wineberry, Blackberry, Huckleberry...

    1. ahahahaha, bay Morgans. I love it.

      Have Hannah tell you about her barn fully of punny Appaloosas sometime. We've been working on names for years.


Thanks for commenting! It's great to hear from you.
