Aloha Zenyatta


The next time Big Mama makes a splash should be the spring of 2012 when she's got her first foal by her side. Save the day. In the meantime, take or leave this opportunity to say goodbye to one of the mostest hosses of a lifetime, and figure that Dylan was singing about her when he wrote the last part of "Eternal Circle" --

As the tune finally folded/

I laid down the guitar/

Then looked for the girl/

Who'd stayed for so long/

But her shadow was missin'/

For all of my searchin'/

So I picked up my guitar/

And began the next song
