Welcome to Buckles Blog. This site is for the discussion of Circus History all over the world.
Ben passed away four years ago today and in view of our upcoming honorarium at the Showfolks Club, I hope the amount of talent he contributed to our careers isn't overlooked.

What a great shot of the 3 of you & my bubbles (cheap shot) He really had such charm & showmanship & had the work ethic of the Woodcocks He did his dad & all of you proud
Naturally I am extremely biased , but I am Honest, being in Winter Quarters with such Great Animal Trainers all together. Hugo, Buckles, Gunther, Axel ,Charly and Wolfgang and being able to watch Training Sessions with Hugo then to Buckles , put me into such AWE that is was Amazing to watch and absorb and now days remember and Look back . Gunther helped Save the Circus for the 70's but he didn't have an Anna Mae.. Congo was a gentle ole soul that could be dependable to carry a tiger and work close with horses. Ben was peaking working with Barbara and my God. yeah GGW worked his whole herd "By Voice Alone". It is a Shame that you never did the Barbershop routine with the Blue Show. Anna Mae was such an Amazing Elephant to be able to watch.
God Bless Ben.
