    Agree. And I've said it before and ill say it again--the reason we keep getting our a$$e$ handed to us is not because of lack of rider skill or horseflesh, but because their elite riders can make a...

    We don't live near hunts any longer, but Mr. PF hunted all his event horses. He used to say that hunting was great for event horses, but eventing was terrible for hunt horses. Our rule evolved over...

    It is a mass start, but not a big line or anything--folks usually start in a way most advantageous to their horse, which for some is near the front of the pack and for some is at the back. I've seen...

    Thank you. The serial spewing on this topic makes me pretty angry, honestly, and I needed this reminder. You are correct, of course.

    Truly curious non-snarky question. All the Christians posting on this thread about what they believe about animals in heaven--what do their church authorities say? Do they agree with your...

    Wow, lots of talk about an old topic. Ill admit I'm defensive, because I knew the horse, knew Chris slightly, and knew the circumstances by which he came to buy him. I've heard a lot of this stuff...

    It makes me hive-itching-crazy that she ended up with Sam in the books. I loved these books passionately, and the last book damn near ruined the whole series for me.

    So that is the only saving...

    Well, I liked it better than how the books ended. I didn't care that much about this season, and that made me sad, because this used to be a must watch show for me. My feeling at the end was like,...

    I'm laughing a bit at this because its always about what we're used to. I lived on the east coast for 13 years, but am a Ca native. When in lived in VA I'd often complain about THAT godforsaken...

    Amy's previous role in was in Fires of Pompeii, same episode Capaldi was in. One of my faves.

    I loved Smiths Doctor when he wasn't within a thousand miles of River. But I agree her superpower was make everything around her sucky. The Van Gogh episode makes me bawl every time. I though he was...

    I also love learning, but I don't automatically assume the world is full of people just waiting for my knowledge and enlightenment. Holy Narcisisum Batman! Yikes.

    Just heard from my friend in Napa, big mess (all their shelves are emptied, fridge popped open, broken window, etc) but no major damage to the house. Phew. Her DH is a fireman, so as soon as they...

    I loved it! I think Capaldi will be amazing, and I find the darker Doctor very intriguing. The bit at the end, "Just see me." Got me right in the feels, cough-sniff.

    It's funny because I enjoyed...

    We're fine--I'm geographically close, but there's a lot of geology between there and here and we just rattled for a few minutes, didn't feel the jolt or rolling others have described. DS didn't wake...

    I'd guess I'm in the 140-150 range. I've competed in the 30-40 range, including eventers, dressage horses, cutters, and an endurance horse. Most of my competitions were events, though probably my...

    Plus one. This is one of my least favorite personality traits--and I'm feeling sensitive right now because I'm dealing with one of you in my own life. I find it the height of rudeness to assume I'm...

    I had my son at the worst possible time, for me personally, and globally (who wouldn't want to go through a high risk, income slashing pregnancy in the middle of the 2009 recession).

    Legalize and tax. I'm not a user myself, though if it were legal I might look in to it as an insomnia treatment.

    But, considering that in all my years I've never known a single person who wanted...

    I was childless, not completely by choice (I could have gone through extensive fertility treatments--no thanks), so hubby and I made a life without kids. I was proudly child free. In my mid-30s I'd...
