Stories From Cowboy Poet At Fresno Flats

OAKHURST – The Cowboy Poet is coming to Fresno Flats on Friday, Sept. 13.

Madison Seamons, DVM, local veterinarian in Coarsegold, is returning to old Cunningham School to entertain everyone with stories of cowboy life and times. His stories will tickle your funny bone.

Dr. Seamans lives with his lovely wife, Sunny Rae, in the foothills outside of Coarsegold, California. Their family unit also includes six horses, an undisclosed number of barn cats, a few coyotes, deer, rattlesnakes and one spoiled dog, “Pippa.”

A professional horseman for over forty years, Dr. Madison Seamans practices equine medicine, surgery and dentistry in the Sierra Nevada foothills of central California, including a 24 hour mobile equine vet service.

He is a 1985 graduate of Texas A&M University, with a graduate degree from the University of Florida. He was a teaching resident at UC Davis in the 1980s, where his focus was on equine reproduction. During his tenure at UC Davis, he was an invited speaker at an international equine reproduction symposium, and authored research published internationally.

Dr. Seamans is a life-long horseman, and has experience as a farm manager, trainer and shoer. He spends his spare time (at least 20 minutes a year), painting and drawing, riding and composing what he coins “bad cowboy poetry.” He says he plans on sleeping when he’s dead.

Dr. Seamans promises to be a very interesting guest, so don’t miss this chance to be entertained and perhaps educated. A light dinner will be provided, all for a nominal fee of $10.00.

Dinner by Fresno Flats and Kiwanis members will be served at 5:30 p.m., followed by the Cowboy Poet’s stories. The public is invited.

Come early as space is limited in the old Cunningham School at Fresno Flats Park on School Road (427) in Oakhurst.
