Today was Sir Barton’s 100th birthday. He is buried in Douglas, Wyoming, home of the Hylton family, his final owners, and, because of the distance between the two of us, I was unable to be in Douglas to lay flowers on his grave in honor of his birthday. Thankfully, Lori and her staff at The Boondocks Flowers and Gifts in Douglas helped me out by creating a bouquet of roses — the flower of the Kentucky Derby — and laid them on Sir Barton’s grave. They even sent me pictures!
Happy Birthday, SB! Thank you, Lori, for helping me on this important day!
