The kids and I went to the Kentucky Horse Park over Mother's Day weekend.
Wish I'd just saved my money. It was like hanging out in my backyard.
But the kids seemed to enjoy it, as much as they could, given they had found out their dad had given away their ponies without telling them and after promising he was going to keep the ponies at the farm. Nice going, putz. So they stood here at the mini pen and cried.
Forego was a horse trained by the late Frank Whiteley Jr., who graciously allowed me to hang around his barn at the Camden Training Center even though he hated reporters. My friend, Bob Witham, used to ride Forego for Mr. Whiteley and the picture everyone wanted after Bob died in a riding accident was that one of him with "Forego" burned into his belt and carrying his tack to take another set out.
The June Tradition!
