Village People

We Wanna Get 'Macho' for Winning Horse

... Of Course

The Village People are relevant again ... thanks to the Breeder's Cup winning thoroughbred Mucho Macho Man -- and now the group's desperate to repay the horse with a performance of his namesake song.

Macho’s owners -- Dean and Patti Reeves -- tell TMZ the disco icons sent them a good luck card back in August … and now that Macho's come up victorious … VP has agreed to play at a celebration for the horse.

The Reeves haven't worked out details of the party just yet, but say VP will be involved. In the meantime, we're told the group wants to meet Mucho by Skype ... which we're guessing will be a pretty one-sided discussion.

Macho flew home to Florida today on a custom 737 dubbed “Air Horse One” -- 'cause well ... he can. As for eventually hooking up with the Village People ... Mucho does seem to like the song. Or maybe he's just happy to hear anything besides "YMCA."

Just because they call themselves "The Village People" doesn't make them The Village People; those guys are a FRAUD!

Great way to stigmatize an innocent creature.

The singer and writer of the song "Macho Man," is actually Victor Willis (original Village People lead singer). I agree with AUGUST, the group that's out there now calling themselves Village People is a Fraud. If the owners of the "Macho Man," horse were smart they'd be seeking the have the real singer and writer (Victor Willis) to perform.

This horse is "weaving". A vice many thoroughbreds have by switching their weight from right to left front legs, due to boredom. This puts more stress on tendons and ligaments. This isn't dancing. Its a vice that causes uneeded damage to the horse.

Exactly, Rachel!
Also, he's a stallion which to the non-horse set means un-gelded, so likely he's more feisty than a gelding.
Stupid to blast this song at him. He looks very uncomfortable and agitated. Poor guy.

I thought this nightmare ended already. Of course it seems like another year for the queer, so maybe they will get a reality TV show. God I hope not!
