    "Upper things"? I must be really tired, but that just cracked me up!

    I'll take any exercise program that has you do multiple exercises at the same time - squat and bicep curl, lunge and overhead...

    Aren't OTTB's the best?:) Mine did the same, exact thing. I now know the feeling of being shot from a cannon. Kind of a rush, but not what would impress any judge in any discipline.

    Unitentionally started the fire. Not that it makes it any less worse, but it wasn't arson. An elderly gentleman was putting out ashes from his fireplace and they were not fully extinguished. He...

    May I join in? Not CL related, but I was wondering the same thing last night on my drive home.

    Yeah - you probably can't fit through the doorway! :winkgrin: I'm at 155 (yikes!), but that's pretty darn good for me. It also puts me in the "overweight" range, as my BMI is 25.8. Whatever - my...

    I'm a "fat rider". I look fat on a horse! I'm short waisted and have rather short, "thick" legs - large hamstrings and quads. I'm strong, fit and not overweight, but this this build, it's...

    18 year old OTTB. Was in great health, maybe a little stiff, but nothing to indicate any issues.

    He'd won quite a bit on the track and was retired. He spent the next 10 years doing the rounds of...

    Dear Ariel -

    You might have to buy a new helmet if you have that much hair. You sure don't want the fit of your helmet compromised by trying to jam all your hair up into it. Aside from being...

    Thank, everyone! Yep, at 25+ years old, I'm sure the foam is pretty well compacted and compromising the fit. I was hoping for an "easy" fix, but we can't have that now, can we? :D

    Thank you. From your description, the panels are probably foam. They are nice and even, not lumpy at all. They feel very different from the panels on my dressage saddle that I know are filled with...
