Fans celebrate Elvis' 74th birthday

Fans gathered for a cake-cutting on Elvis Presley's 74th birthday and got word of two new residents at his Graceland mansion.

Presley's ex-wife, Priscilla Presley, led several hundred fans in singing Happy Birthday on Graceland's front lawn on Thursday and announced that two rescue horses - named Max and Bandit - have taken up residence on the grounds of the famous white-columned house.

Elvis, who died at Graceland in 1977 at age 42, maintained stables and riding pastures for horses at his longtime Memphis residence.

With the addition of Max and Bandit, Graceland now has four horses residing in its eight-stall barn.

Following the sing-along and the reading of proclamations, fans lined up for pieces of birthday cake handed out at Graceland's sprawling souvenir shopping centre.

Elvis Presley would have been 74 today on his birthday, January 8, and in honor of the King, ET's Kevin Frazier is with Priscilla Presley as she celebrates her late hubby's birthday and the 70th anniversary of Graceland in Memphis. But first, Priscilla speaks out on friend John Travolta and Kelly Preston's tragic loss of their son, Jett.

"I've met Jett and he was a beautiful son," says Priscilla. "The loss that they have suffered is beyond... They [are] incredible parents. It's going to be awhile, but we're all behind them and support them, that's for sure."

Following the 70th Anniversary celebration kick-off, three new major exhibits will open this spring at Graceland: "Elvis in Hollywood" (charting the rock 'n' roll icon's rise on the big screen, featuring scripts and memorabilia); "Elvis Lives: The King and Pop Culture" (an interactive video presentation with music and trivia); and some new additions to the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum, including both of his Rolls Royce sedans, his 6-door Mercedes Benz limo, and the 16 ft ski boat he named after his mother.

In addition to the festivities, Graceland is also adopting a 10-month-old abused colt to join the other horses in the estate's back pasture -- and Friday on ET, Priscilla personally introduces the colt to Kevin!

Watch ET for more with Priscilla Presley at Graceland!

Priscilla brings rescued horses to Graceland

Animals add homey touch to Elvis' estate, she says
By Michael Lollar (Contact), Memphis Commercial Appeal
Thursday, January 8, 2009

"Graceland is a living breathing home," says Priscilla Presley, and she wants "to keep it the way Elvis left it," including the barn and horses that were a part of life with Elvis.

Jim Schmidt from Delano, Minn., listens as Priscilla Presley welcomes Elvis fans on the grounds of Graceland to mark what would have been The King's 74th birthday

One of the reasons she was in Memphis Thursday for Elvis' 74th birthday celebration was to introduce the world to two rescue horses adopted by Graceland. They live on the grounds where they were nursed back to health after living in life-threatening situations.
Presley says she intended to introduce a 3-year-old horse, Max, at last year's birthday celebration, but the horse became ill during a 15-hour drive from Maine to Memphis. He missed the birthday while being cared for by a veterinarian.

"He was eating the bark off trees when we got him," says Presley, who says the owner made the right decision by asking for help before Max and five other horses grew weaker.

The latest adoption is a 10-month-old quarter horse named Bandit, rescued last year from a Fayette County farm. Owner George Blackburn was convicted of neglecting Bandit and more than a dozen other horses.

"Unfortunately several didn't make it," said Presley, who says she is grateful to Fayette County Animal Rescue and the state for rescuing most of the horses.

Bandit has gained 56 pounds since arriving at Graceland, and she says he is one of four horses in the barn's eight stalls.

Presley says riding horses was a favorite pastime at Graceland and led to the purchase of the 160-acre Circle G Ranch in Mississippi "to have the freedom to ride."

The horses also add a touch of hominess to Graceland, which she says is important to the family. "When we come back, Lisa loves to get out on the golf cart with her children. It's just great memories for us."

Presley says her favorite part of Graceland is "just walking through those doors. You feel his presence there. You sit down in the kitchen, and it's as if time has stood still. You can feel the presence. Elvis' spirit is certainly there."
