. In 1986, while performing at a rodeo in Hammond, La., Lepard brought his dog into the ring and his monkey jumped on board for the ride.
“They all went crazy cheering,” Lepard said, and he recalls the rodeo director telling him, “If you get a faster dog you’ll be a rock star.”
Lepard's cowboy-clad capuchin ring-tailed monkeys riding on the backs of border collies, chasing after big-horned sheep.
“I speak from my heart. I wear my heart on my shoulders,” he said. “This is a dream of mine, just to own a monkey, and I’ve followed my dreams.”
The younger posters on here probably won't believe it, but at age 39 I'm old enough to remember when you could buy a real live monkey through mail order by replying to an ad in the back of an Archie comic.
