Some of my favorite shows of 2013: Morrissey in Pittsburgh and Columbus; Bad Religion in Columbus on my birthday; Alkaline Trio in Baltimore; American Nightmare in Chicago; JD McPherson in Alexandria; The Shindig festival in Baltimore; Koffin Kats in Baltimore; Nine Inch Nails in Cleveland. It’s been a pretty amazing year.
This is Brooklyn Supreme, billed as “The World’s Biggest Horse.”
Brooklyn Supreme stood 19.2 hands and weighed 3,200 pounds. He wore a 40-inch collar and boasted a girth measurement of 10 feet, 2 inches around. It took 30 inches of iron for each of his horseshoes. Foaled in 1928, he eventually became the property of C.G. Good of Iowa. Good’s partner, Ralph Fogleman, exhibited the big horse around the country, charging spectators 10 cents apiece. Brookie died in 1948.”
