    Young Misty Kiss is now ensconced at JMP Farm, where she's sharing living quarters with Zizi. These two get along very well, and they're the same size. Misty would probably be very surprised to...

    I think my very useful pony was there, in the Prelim. Glenbaer said temps were in the mid 20s. F not C. I get confused when the mercury is that low.

    Congrats on your Saturday escapades. ...

    You either exaggerate or you slept in. When I checked the SoPi weather this morning, it was 18F, not a balmy 19. :D

    A pelvis fracture can heal very nicely. Bone is good at that.

    enjoytheride, you did well to give this horse a chance to enjoy his life.

    Agreed. I don't do Facebook so hadn't seen her remarks. Very nice of Kadenz to dig that up for me.

    That said, I really do wish riders and owners would be assertive about the very real issues in...

    Very much agreed.

    And it's quite possible that someone wouldn't defend their actions after all. I doubt the organizers, riders and owners entered into this fiesta thinking it was going to be...

    Silly me. I had no idea the RAWF 'eventing' competition was elitist.

    The problem with that is that everyone might think they're still in the running -- and according to this (admittedly weak) conclusion, that would likely cause more falls.
