Ebony's Double, a Tennessee Walking Horse and the last of Elvis Presley's surviving horses, died suddenly on Friday, January 14, 2005. He was 32 years old.

When Elvis died, there were still five horses at Graceland, all of which, with superior veterinary care, lived well into old age and were seen by Graceland tour visitors. They were: Rising Sun, a golden palomino quarter horse and Elvis' personal favorite, which he acquired in 1967; Memphis, a Tennessee Walking Horse Elvis acquired in the 1960s; Mare Ingram, a mixed breed grade mare Elvis acquired in the 1960s and humorously named in dubious honor of the Mayor Bill Ingram of Memphis; Moriah, Lisa Marie Presley's pony; and Ebony's Double, a Tennessee Walking Horse Elvis acquired in 1975.

Ebony's Double: Elvis' last horse keeps gait at Graceland.

When Rising Sun died in 1986, EPE did a national search and acquired a distant relative of Sun's and named him Sun's Reflection. He, along with Ebony's Secret Threat, a Tennessee Walking Horse acquired by Priscilla Presley in 1983, continue to live at Graceland.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
