The last time I did a Snapshot Saturday on an animal was way back when in 2014 when I wrote on Lady Gaga's adorable little dog Asia.
Recently, I have not been able to get away from American Pharoah. He is EVERYWHERE. He is invading my life. He's in Vogue. He's on TV. He's on my tumblr feed. I want to say I'm over it, but I've decided to fan girl.
The Kentucky Derby is life goals to me. I want to get dressed up in my finery and a big ass hat, wave a fan and sit in a crowd of wealthy rednecks and bet on horses. It sounds luxurious. And, if you live in Kentucky it really is the only social event of the year. I hope you aren't afraid of horses.
I'm not sure if it's possible to be attracted to a horse. The last time I rode a horse was when I was seven. Maybe I was six, but I digress. American Pharoah is stunning. Glamour. He could walk down a runway in vintage Chanel if he wanted and I would buy it.
This horse looks better then me and I'm not about that life.
Now, American Pharoah is also living a better life then the rest of us. He has a private jet. You heard it hear first. American Pharoah has his own custom jumbot jet. According to Vogue when he recently arrived in Louisville he had a police escort back to his stables, because of the throng of fans hoping to see him.
He is a horse.
The one thing you must know about American Pharoah is that he loves carrots. If your a fan the only acceptable gift is carrots. They must be small and already peeled. Even, then his security might not let him eat them.
The horse is leading the life we deserve to live. The life we want. His siring rights have already been sold off. Soon there will be little baby American Pharoah's living in America's greener pastures and air conditioned stables.
God help the rich.
