  1. I'd have to vote mustang or maybe mustang cross....

    I'd have to vote mustang or maybe mustang cross. Sweet horses, very smart, seem to live forever (the ones I've known anyway), live on air even in a harsh environment like Wyoming, great feet, solid...

    My beloved Thoroughbred (now gone) actually taught me a good way to feed my horses in their stalls. He was an alpha horse and perfectly capable of being pushy with people as well as horses, but he...

    Excuse me! I misread your post. I see "self insure" now. I do have to wonder how many millions it takes to feel comfortable self insuring - and how many Americans have that much money.

    Husband and I have been self-employed for many years. We had individual health coverage - very expensive, went up 20-25% a year like clockwork. When husband turned 65, coverage ceased. Simply could...

    I love this show! Loved it some years ago when it was on then too. It's soooooo twisted...:lol:

    Well, sheesh! You are eliminating a whole lot of people as friends! When I was about your age, I met one of the best friends of my life - she was close to my mother's age. We had common interests and...

    Haven't read all of the answers but I can say that if I were living in the country alone with a handicapped woman as my only companion, I would have a shotgun (at least). It would be locked in a gun...

    Thanks! It is such a beautiful language in its written form.

    Well, I'm relieved that the Arabic didn't bring up bad associations. :)

    How interesting that the Rheinland-Pfalz accent is so very different! And it really is, if "ich" is pronounced "eesh"....
  10. I am very sorry! Certainly didn't mean to bring...

    I am very sorry! Certainly didn't mean to bring up any bad associations, just have some harmless fun. Again, so, so sorry!

    I studied German for years (many years ago) but remember very little so I...
  11. German is cool because it smooshes words together...

    German is cool because it smooshes words together when needed in order to form a more detailed, perfect word for the thought. But it is not a pretty language. But wow - put "heart horse" into...

    OP, your thread is sparking this thought but it is not directed at you. It's directed at anyone out there who uses an electronic device in their hands while they drive.

    It shrivels my soul to see...
  13. Again, very tricksy! :lol: What personal digs?

    Again, very tricksy! :lol:

    What personal digs?

    Oh, I have noooooo problem if s/he wants to abuse herself. ;):lol::lol::lol:

    And as you say, there's the rub. You interpret one way, I another. Maybe that's because I'm coming up on the first anniversary of the death of my heart horse. Or maybe it's because I don't see the...

    In her/his second post, they say this:

    "On the contrary, I actually feel sad for people who truly believe they will only be able to love one horse as much as their 'heart horse.'"

    Third post:...
  17. No, s/he did not make a distinction. "I can't...

    No, s/he did not make a distinction.

    "I can't even articulate how many face palms the phrase 'heart horse' inspires in me. Particularly since it's almost always used..."

    S/he hates the phrase....

    It's very tricksy to have a thread the whole point of which is to bash a group of people and then claim they are the negative ones for defending themselves.

    Very tricksy indeed.

    :lol::lol: Wow! Can I bring my baggage and come over for a piece? Or a margarita, if PlanB it is? :winkgrin:

    The fundamentals are sooooooooo not the same. Here is the definition of the "n" word according to Merriam-Webster:

    1) usually offensive; see usage paragraph below : a black person

    2) usually...

    Most certainly I never said that different strokes weren't for different folks! To each his own.

    And I repeat - I am not claiming superiority. (You are bringing that baggage with you.) I am...
  23. And that is why "favorite" is not comparable with...

    And that is why "favorite" is not comparable with "heart". The only way I could ever have sold my heart horse is if I were somehow completely convinced it would have been better for him.
  24. No, I did not feel pity for any of the people who...

    No, I did not feel pity for any of the people who did not believe in (or had not had) a heart animal. Pity (to me) is an emotion that implies some feelings of superiority. That is not the technical...
  25. Your post was directed at my post, and really,...

    Your post was directed at my post, and really, you need to get over this idea that people are comparing themselves to you and snickering. Most people spend very little time thinking about others!
