    I think flowers at the stall would be much appreciated by the owner.

    Bingo! I was just thinking about her when someone was asking about the Billings horse auction. Did not contribute to any of her fiascos, but remember following them quite closely. She also wound...

    There are various books available that give retail values for coins. Of course, if you are selling, any dealer will want to pay wholesale prices. A lot depends on their condition, which can range...

    But there was one hog that inadvertently was killed and the reaction was so over the top that this one didn't "count" in their tally, that I had the impression that they had to produce live hogs to...

    Caught one of these "reality shows" a while back (and didn't watch very long either) about hog chasers/hunters. They were catching--or trying to catch--hogs, tying them up and hauling them off...

    Price is not horrible, especially with the OBO bit. He may not be broke but he looks pleasant and tame, and he looks pretty well cared for. Gelding and some work might make a nice horse out of him.

    I was for Hillary when she was running against Obama for the nomination. Obama was a very distant second, as far as I was concerned. If she runs again I will happily support her. :applause:

    I watched him on GMA this morning. It was a very heartfelt apology, so many times removed from all of the PR generated apologies that we usually see. He got carried away by the moment, and I'm sure...

    Wasn't there another horse who either did not finish or ended up way back? Any word on him?

    If we're going to blame anybody, let's put at least a large part of the blame on the media. They're the ones who have turned this into a 5+ week circus event. Sure there has probably always been...

    It was mentioned that Secretariat ran against 4 horses in the Belmont. Someone ran a column before the Belmont citing the number of horses in each Triple Crown winner's field and they consistently...

    Since most of the country had the "winter from hell" I was wondering how all of those feedlot horses made it through, since windbreaks were deemed more than sufficient.

    I'm sorry I was so apathetic during the 60s. Looking back, I really, really wish that I had been in some demonstratons. An acquaintaince was in Chicago during the convention--I'm so envious.

    I've been watching his morning gallops and he makes everything look so easy. Has anyone actually seen him breathing hard? He looks like he's bulked up a bit too.

    Let's hope that Chrome's sibs do better than Barbaro's brothers. Pictures of both are on the Harris Farm website, and those two are BUILT; no worry about not enough bone with those two.
