Well, now I have seen it all and have laughed a good deal about it.
The Onion released an amazing article on endorsements for Big Brown involving his own personal line of horseshoes. Read the article here.
For those who don't know the Onion, it is an entertainment-based news source and should not be taken literally.
In light of this article, there is a lot of talk about the IEAH gentlemen creating hedge funds and being businessmen. With a great deal of experience in business, the stock market, and other ventures, it is no surprise that they have new deals emerging.
One such deal seems to be the gain of more advertisers in the industry, and is seriously great for us. I often look at NASCAR and wonder how advertising can be used in that way to increase revenue for our horse industry. But then again, you should always be careful what you wish for. Im not saying I know what that would look like and I would not want that to affect tradition. But man, things could get a little hairy.
Alas, I am building up to this moment and pictures are worth a thousand words. So my statement is this: (feel free to chuckle!)
