Almost forgot about Sir Archie. Born in Virginia but spent most of his life in Northampton County, NC. There is a roadside marker near where the plantation was.

by Khartoum reply 7712/05/2017

"American Pharoah "

Whoever named that nag can't spell for shit.

Eadweard Muybridge’s “Horse in Motion” (1878), which proved a bet by Leland Stanford that all four legs of the horse are aloft at the same time... it also led to moving pictures.

by Khartoum reply 8812/05/2017

Denny, the horse Jim rides off a cliff in order to chase down the Brumby mob in "The Man from Snowy River."

Also, the brumbies in "The Man fron Snowy River."

by Khartoum reply 9112/06/2017

Seriously? Ninety fucking posts in and not a single mention of me??

by Khartoum reply 9212/06/2017

Seabiscuit has a statue in a mall parking lot in San Bruno, CA while DL fave, megastar, and local daughter Suzanne Somers has nothing. That’s star power.

One would think, with the number of times Elizabeth Taylor breathlessly exclaims "The Pie" in "National Velvet", that one of you bitches would have mentioned him by NOW!

by Khartoum reply 10312/06/2017

Fury and My Friend Flicka, both of whom had eponymous TV series.

Smarty Jones

by Khartoum reply 10512/06/2017

[quote]Ruffian. Bless her.

That was the most traumatic event of my childhood.

by Khartoum reply 10612/06/2017

r1: I always get Meditation, from “Auntie Mame” (1958), confused with Solitude, from “Love Me Tonight” (1932). Maurice Chevalier, like Mame, is an inexperienced horseman. Given a choice of mounts, he selects Solitude over Thunderbolt only to learn that Solitude is so named because he always returns alone, riderless.

by Khartoum reply 107Last Thursday at 12:44 AM

R100, above, r107, was in reference to your post, not r1. Apologies from r107, r1

by Khartoum reply 108Last Thursday at 12:46 AM

I don't kiss and tell.
