Vermont Phoenix, April 27, 1838. Yeah, I’d say that horse was blooded but good.


  1. I am reminded of my wife’s great-uncle, who regularly invited young girls to come and see where the horse bit him. (He would also promise you a quarter, if you’d reach in his front pocket and get it.) The courtliness of the old Southern gentleman . . .

    • That courtly old gentleman must be sorely missed and mourned.
