Equine Obituary – Liar Liar



World Champion Liar Liar was humanely laid to rest on November 18, 2019 due to chronic issues related to EPM. He had battled the disease since June 2018.  

By Broken Promises and out of Star Crossed Pride, Liar Liar was bred and raised by Randall Ferguson of Union Grove, Alabama.  He was trained and shown successfully by Jamie Bradshaw in his early years. 

In 2007, Paul Livingston found Liar Liar for Gary and Shea Sproles when he was five-years-old. This was the beginning of an 11-year show ring career for Liar Liar and Shea Sproles, as they competed across the Middle Tennessee, East Tennessee, Virginia, and North Carolina show circuits. The highlight of their partnership was winning the Novice Ladies on Novice Walking Mares and Geldings class at the 2011 National Walking Horse Celebration, under the direction of Paul Livingston. Paul Livingston continued to train Liar Liar through the middle of 2012. After that, Mike Carter trained him for a year.

Another significant memory for this duo was competing in the Classic Horse class at the 2017 National Walking Horse Celebration, under the direction of Jackie Barron. Liar Liar remained under the direction of Jackie Barron from 2013 up until his retirement from the show ring in 2018.  

Liar Liar spent the last year and half in retirement on Gary and Shea’s farm in Fall Branch, Tennessee. He was deeply loved by his owners and will be greatly missed.
