Shark’s Perspective

  • Farewell to The Barking Shark

    By GEVA on February 10, 2017
    By Richard E. Glover, Jr. Recently, horse racing lost a hero when The Barking Shark succumbed to colic. Not a superstar or household name like American Pharoah or California Chrome, but a hero nonetheless. The kind of horse that’s heart took him farther than his breeding and conformation should have ever taken him. The kind of horse that loved to […]
  • 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 […]
  • Shark’s Perspective: On Fixing Problems

    By GEVA on January 1, 2015
    Where does the time go? Well, I did it again!! I fell down on my duty as communicator. I owe you all an apology for my lack of communication this year. I’ve got all kinds of excuses: my mares, first and foremost, but then the weather, and events at the farm, and my attitude and laziness about getting around to […]
  • Shark’s Perspective: September 2009

    By GEVA on September 1, 2009
    Where does the time go? Wow! Here it is September and I’ve been remiss in my responsibilities to get my thoughts out to you since last spring. Where does the time go?!? It’s not like I have a lot to do around here except keep my mares happy, put up with their nagging at me and watch over what’s going […]
  • Shark’s Perspective: Spring!

    By GEVA on April 1, 2009
    Spring is in the air, and in the trees, and in our systems. We’re shedding our winter coats! Hurrah!! It’s itchy, I want it gone now! I roll, but that doesn’t quite do it. I sure appreciate it when Pam comes out to give me a good curry. Unfortunately I intimidate the volunteers, so they won’t come in to groom […]
  • Shark’s Perspective: Oh Baby, it’s cold outside…

    By GEVA on December 1, 2008
    and that’s where I live! However, I have my two lovely fillies to keep me warm. (Yes!!!! Eat your heart out, guys!) I know they pick on me, but they keep me happy. But getting back to the cold, there are some things upon which I’d like to give my opinions from this special horse’s point of view. I’ve been […]
  • Shark’s Perspective: Retirement

    By GEVA on October 1, 2008
    You know, I’m just a horse, but a great horse if I may say so. I’m big and handsome and strong. I’m not mean by any stretch of the imagination, but at times I just feel so good and playful I’m a bomb waiting to explode, and sometimes I do. I run and buck and play and strike and really […]
  • Shark’s Perspective: Cool, Clear Water

    By GEVA on June 1, 2008
    Wow, it’s hot out here! My owner always has some cool, clear water for me to drink. Actually, sometimes it’s not so cool when the temperature rises, but it’s clean. I need lots of it when it’s hot, and it’s no good when it’s days old and full of scum and algae. Why don’t people realize that I need good […]
