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!

I think Jimmy could be correct. I believe the horses names were Lady, Babe, Roni and Sonny. This would have been the older set of horses they had when Enrico, Joe Zoppe's brother,got off the road. I remember as a kid getting my foot stepped on by each and every one of those horses.

Rico had a birthday party in the back barn at which I had a few, then while standing talking to Roland Tiebor Jr. & not paying attention, every time Rico found a glass with something,(anything) in it he would sneak up and pour it in my glass. When it came time to go home and I went out the door into the 18 below zero temperature, I went straight to my knees. I remember crawling through the snow on my hands & knees but don't remember getting to my trailer. Obviously I did make it home.
