Things got a little cheeky in the first rate at the Canterbury race track in Sydney, Australia yesterday when jockey Blake Shinn's trouser elastic snapped as he rode Miss Royale toward the finish line.
Even with his backside on full display, he managed to finish second, right in front of a horse named Modesty.
This stuff you can't make up.
And while it was embarrassing, it didn't affect him much. He won the last race of the day on a horse named Eisenhower.
Sharon, Lois, and Bram and their song "Skinnamarink" were my JAM as a kid. Sad news today... Lois passed away. As I get older and my brain gets filled with useless information, this is one of those songs that will never be forgotten. I can't remember much from being a really small child, but this song and The Elephant Show will never be forgotten. I love you in the morning and in the afternoon I love you in the evening underneath the moon! Awwwwwww, such awesome memories!
Recently Lissa & I were contacted by Stephanie, a volunteer at the Indraloka Animal Sanctuary in Mehoopany. They wanted us to remind you about the center celebrating it's 10th year providing education programs to over 2,000 kids and 1,000 adults. More than 600 animals have been rescued and cared for at the sanctuary.
As they like to put it, Indraloka provides a "heaven on Earth" for farm animals with no other place left to turn.
This sounds like a pretty amazing place. Visitors are always welcome. They are open for visits & tours most Saturdays at 11a or by appointment Tuesday thru Friday.
