As an E E Cummings fan, I already had meupatdoes figured out, but I am still puzzleing a bit over goeslikestink :D
I think some people think of me as SmartA$$. SmartAlex was actually my most favorite horse ever. Although I think I owned him for the shortest amount of time of any.
Unforgettable is my horse, so named because he was born with a huge white belly spot, which would make him stick out like a sore thumb in the show ring (Arab). I had the mods change my handle after I posted details about a creepy local horse abuser sex fiend that had been released...I used to post under my real name (Sharon Potter). I'm pretty much exactly who I say I am...my life has had enough adventure without having to make some up. :)
My name's an acronym, you guys.
It was actually YBIAF, but then I forgot my password and couldn't retrieve it because I also lost the password to the email account, so I changed it to YBIAW but all lower case because I'm a REBEL.
It came about as a joke on the song Your Body Is A Wonderland (YBIAW) by John Mayer...my horse's show name was Wonderland....barn name Frisbee....so I used to call the song Your Body Is A Frisbee (YBIAF).
I hate "ybiaw" a whole lot....but figure its better to keep the name than to start over as a greenie on this board!!!
Does any one know if "said accused" even knows this thread exists?
I just opened this thread -- who knew such fun was going on? My entire COTH existence is a lie. I do have a tractor, but it is a JD and I do not spell with a Russian accent.
We did, however, own a Ford when I was growing up, before the entire family turned green. At least one COTHer boards her horse at my dad's farm, but she arrived after the blue one left so you have to take my word for it. Or not.
Reese-riffic, I'm so glad you reminded me...please forgive my old age and memory lapse! My only excuse besides old age is that I typed that message while in a hurry yesterday so I missed not only you, but a few other wonderful COTHers as well. You are right, though, in that our first meeting was a totally memorable and cool experience! I'm was very concerned that you might be horrible and stuck up and not nearly as cool as you came across online, but my worries were for nothing. Deep down, I have remnants of the shy, awkward, and self-conscious kid that I used to be, so I was very worried that you would think I was a complete dork or loser. You are truly one of the few bright, shining, and awesome horse people in Southern Maryland (at least that I've met, anyway), and I am forever grateful for your friendship.
I have to tell you guys how awesome Reese is. When I had to put my beloved 15 y.o. cat to sleep a few months ago, Reese met me and my boyfriend at the vet's office for moral support. I had him his entire life and this was my first time putting an animal to sleep, so it was very difficult. It really meant the world to me that she got up early on a Saturday morning to be there with us, especially because she wasn't feeling well! For as hilarious and badass as she comes across to most of the world, she has the best heart and is one of the kindest and sweetest people I know.
Regarding the not-so-nice person I mentioned previously, as I said, her name has already been stated on this thread. Usually her posting has to do with providing a "forever home," which is a crock of s**t.
I'm honest with the co-workers/local friends who want to friend me though. I just tell them, "I don't FB friend anyone I see every day. I already know too much about you!" No one seems to be bothered by that.
