    My last name is a girl's name.

    My first name is too long so I use an unusual nickname (and I have my whole life).

    What kind of academic setting are you in that will accept "an informal poll from an online forum" as a valid source/reference? I don't think anecdote from the horse community are going to strengthen...

    If you're wearing a size 13, you must be a bit more of a boyish build than curvy. Aren't juniors/teens sizes done in odd numbers, women's sizes in evens? You could have 20-25% body fat and still be...

    I'm way overdue for a re-flocking. Circumstances and such. Time, money, a horse out of work for 3 months due to surgery and losing muscling (on top of what gets lost normally in this frigid winter). ...

    Don't eat your emotions.

    Go to the effing gym.

    Being slender never solved any problems, but being fat sure has complicated things.

    Probably one of the reasons I don't lease my horses out, currently.
