    By GEVA on February 10, 2017
    By Richard E. Glover, Jr. Recently, horse racing lost a hero when The Barking Shark succumbed to colic.

  • Shark’s Last Perspective

    By GEVA on January 1, 2016
    I must apologize to you all that I haven’t spoken my mind in quite a while, but I’ve been busy taking care of my mares and keeping an eye on things here at the farm from my favorite vantage point. I can see the whole farm from that corner, and my girls just hang there with me. I must admit […]

    By GEVA on January 1, 2015

    By GEVA on December 1, 2011
    Pamela Berg has been inducted into the Equus Hall of Fame for her twenty years of dedication to helping horses in need in Sonoma County. Pam can’t remember a life without horses.

  • Wheatley Hill

    By GEVA on January 1, 2010
    1997 Dark Bay Thoroughbred Mare “Miss Wheatley” arrived with a fractured sesamoid, quite aloof and untrusting. She’s healed well, and now is almost a nuisance wanting to be in the middle of things, but she’s always a welcome nuisance.
