Bushwacking on the Russell Fork/Chaney's Dairy Barn/John Henry Memorial Sculpture #1430
Civil War re-enactors skirmish in the hills and along the shores of Pike County's Big Sandy River; as more and more family owned farms in Kentucky are calling it quits, one industrious Warren County family has turned to agri-tourism to carry on the family legacy; a memorial worthy of the great racehorse John Henry takes shape as artists and fans collaborate on a tribute to the inspiring horse; and more Paw Pals. A 2009 KET production hosted by Dave Shuffett.

Jose Rivera/Mountain Pleasure Horses/Loretto Motherhouse #1431
The music of singer/guitarist Jose Rivera brings the joyful sounds of Mexico to Central Kentucky audiences; a horse hidden in the hills of Eastern Kentucky for over a century is considered "critical" by the Equine Conservancy; no longer an active motherhouse, a retired community of nuns keeps an active farm, hosts retreats, maintains an art gallery, and conducts tours; and more Paw Pals. A 2009 KET production hosted by Dave Shuffett.
