    I was very glad our boy was running on the grass after all that. (We had the winner in race 5.) I wonder about the concert stage thing--coincidence? Or maybe not a good thing to put that much...

    In ballroom, it's a rather close-knit world and I asked once about cases where I knew a wife was on a panel and her husband was dancing pro-am with his students. My pro pointed out how if she...

    It's not very humane to eat them while they're still alive....The running doesn't bother them, but it's often hard on people running in front of them.

    Also, while the dog-eating festival has been...

    Why would they be? Endorsement deals have nothing to do with risks of a sport or even talent, achievement or winnings. They have to do with marketability. The person has to have name recognition...

    Exercise isn't for everyone. It doesn't work long-term unless you have the luxury of devoting a lot of your time to something *naturally* unpleasant....

    My cat went back to ordinary/indoor formula dry food (and his usual wet food, which never changed) with cranberry extract additive once he came off the stone-dissolving formula. He never had an...

    We have a Brenderup--Dad says the inertial brakes only engage to stop it running up on the car. He moves our trailer on the jack wheel by hand, so as long as they didn't drag it with the PARKING...

    I don't know that Lucky particularly cares. He's more weirded out by the noise of the irrigation sprinklers across the road (and given it's bone dry lately, they've been running a lot.)

    If I were to buy one (I spray/wipe) I would NOT get one with ears because I do not want to be flung into the wall trying to put something over Lucky's ears. He hates people touching his ears.

    Same here. Washington and Lee--our exams were self-scheduled, unproctored, and in a lot of cases we could take them ANYWHERE on campus during the exam period we selected. If you were caught, you...

    I don't think Lucky actively avoids the spot at the top of the hill where Benny (old TB) is buried, though I can't say I've watched him at liberty enough to know. *I'm* honestly not sure exactly...

    Honestly, sometimes it's accepting that the good job, ie the one where you really do want to live for work, can't support the fun indulgences. Personally, for me, I cannot hack it at 'high pay, low...

    Not relevant. That only matters to those people and their insurance company. If they were $400 krazy kolor specials, it wouldn't be fair for them to have to deal with a horse who can barely be...

    They got the description of the fences right but they left out where it was uphill, both ways, in six feet of snow.

    Got one for $200 on Ebay when I was looking for something to use on Lucky (my old Steubben AP did NOT fit nearly enough) and I love it.

    Puff, before he died, was having some symptoms that suggested to me he might be at risk of cancer. An exam showed no signs of tumors, just arthritis, and he died of old age at 16 before any further...

    Honestly? All I'm thinking is "Hit the wire first." The notion of our horses breaking down is the last thing on my mind when they run. I worry more that my riding horse will be doing something...

    1. Beholder.
    2. California Chrome.
    3. ?
    4. Nyquist.

    I don't think Beholder can beat Chrome at 1 1/4, or Nyquist. I don't think Songbird could beat any of them. Chrome vs Nyquist is too early...

    You're my new COTH hero. I honestly don't know a lot of other people who have shown who just decide to go with "keep the horse, forget the showing" when it turns out to not be the horse's thing.
