In 1973, Dick Sparrow and the 40 horse hitch was returning from the Washington DC Cherry Blossom festival when they laid over at the George Harkness farm near Sandusky, Ohio. I lived just around the corner from the farm.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
