The state of the State of Arizona, circa 1910. Some things have changed a bit in 100+ years.
From the Rand McNally Atlas of the World, 1911 edition.
The dark bay stallion, foaled in Japan in 2001, is a son of Sunday Silence and Tricky Code.
He went on to win 8 races, from 21 starts, one of them was in the Hong Kong Mile, and was Japanese champion miler at the age of 4.
He currently stands in the USA.
I’d love to see this guy. I wonder if he has the Halo bad attitude. ; )

Your message is insulting. Rather than get snippy with an un-removeable banner at the top of the home page telling me my browser is outdated (it isn’t—it’s the latest version of Safari) and that ‘tumblr isn’t really going to work’, how about making your website play nice with a major browser used by millions of your users? We’re not talking IE or Netscape here, for crying out loud.
Thank you in advance.
I have not seen nor plan to see a Hunger Games movie but this made me chuckle.
TODAY is the 50th Anniversary of the beloved classic Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. First published in 1963, it has sold more than 16 million copies worldwide.
The New York Times obituary for Maurice Sendak calls Where the Wild Things Are “simultaneously genre-breaking and career-making,” describing Sendak as being “…widely considered the most important children’s book artist of the 20th century, who wrenched the picture book out of the safe, sanitized world of the nursery and plunged it into the dark, terrifying and hauntingly beautiful recesses of the human psyche.”
One of the most talked about interviews we’ve ever done was with Maurice Sendak in 2011 shortly before he died. Sendak reflects on love, loss, and celebrating life:
I have nothing now but praise for my life. I’m not unhappy. I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more. … What I dread is the isolation. … There are so many beautiful things in the world which I will have to leave when I die, but I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready.
I loved Maurice Sendak’s work, and everything I knew of him. When I heard this interview before he died, it had me smiling and crying and nodding in agreement. Which sounds really stupid, but wasn’t. Bless you Maurice, wherever you areSource: nprfreshair
