Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

CIRCUS VARGAS 1987

Trudy & Sonny
Sonny was the lead horse in my Mixed Act. I have to tell this story, one day Sonny was doing a lot of laying down, rolling, getting up etc. you horse guys all know the symptoms, so we finally called a vet. The vets diagnosis was not good & he suggested we send him to a clinic for surgery, Vargas was out of town so I took the problem to Joe Moscerella(sp?) he asked what the cost was going to be, I said possibly $2500(now here's a horse that Vargas probably paid $250 for tops). When he came back from talking with Vargas he asked if we could get a 2nd opinion, I said they would do that at the clinic, and he said, "go for it". It turned out the horse was merely impacted and everything came out fine.(no wisecracks).My point is, I thought it was commendable that Vargas made that decision.
