All about our favorite horse, John Henry.
What happened to John's tail after it was taken the night he died??Does anyone know??
Good question, I never heard that story before. John K
Johns tail was cut off after he was put down and it was handed to a woman they said was the head of Equine operations, Hopkinsalittle bit degrading if you ask me
Very disrespectful to John Henry, if you ask me.
I am just wondering if it was for personal wealth or what??? Someone needs to say something
I have heard that it was used to make bracelets????
Does anyone know where I might find a John Henry money clip?(My dad had one and lost it and is one of John's biggest fans.)
Does anybody know how to buy the film is you're in Canada? I tried the official site and it kept saying I hadn't put in a proper country designation. I had, but I don't think the program liked that it wasn't US.
I watched the documentary, and it was spectacular. He is one of the greatest ever, and will forever live on in our hearts. Although I wouldn't call myself a race fan, John Henry and I share alot of similarities...even a name. I was wondering if it was ever thought about to make a feature film about this horse? I know they made movies about Secretariat and Seabiscut, but I think JH's is one many can relate to. Any thoughts?John Henry P
I was there and John's tail was never taken. A few and I mean a few strands were taken by those very close to him as is often customary. He was buried with 99% of his tail intact. The euthanasia and burial were both VERY respectful.Bill
Thanks Bill for your comments. John
I was also there for his burial and his tail WAS cut off. A woman braided it and another cut it off with scissors. I have found that it has been used to make bracelets for a few friends of the person who took it
Happy Birthday, John! I enjoyed our annual visits very much.You live on in our hearts. 3.9.2012 Bev Dee
I have the john henry money clip you are looking for. I am looking for best offer. 707-266-8800- Sarah if you are interested.
Flew from Toronto to New York just to see John Henry run in the Turf Cup. Still have the program and a two dollar win ticket and some grainy pictures of him posing in the walking ring. He was an inspiration, a great boon to racing then and what we need now to get the excitement and enjoyment back into racing. Love that old campaigner.
