Madison Bumgarner Took His Horses to Spring Training, Because Why Not?

Baseball Is Fun

San Francisco Giants fans are undoubtedly excited to see their ace warming up at Spring Training, and getting ready for another year:

But how exactly did Bumgarner arrive at Giants camp? Train? Plane? Automobile?

Horse?

Maybe that sounds like a crazy question, but Bumgarner has arrived to a Giants game astride his trusty steed before – he pulled it off for Opening Day last year.

But, no, he didn’t arrive literally atop a horse this year to Spring Training … but he did bring his horses along with him to Scottsdale, Arizona:

According to the Mercury News article cited by Big League Stew, Bumgarner was a little cagey about the details of his equestrian travels, confirming only that he hauled the horses across the country from North Carolina in a trailer that broke down at one point during the long trek.

I like to imagine it like Oregon Trail, with a broken axel and Bumgarner out in the woods, hunting for food … netting only a squirrel. And then getting dysentery before having to ford the river. But he’s fine now. Everything is fine.
