Final installment! (At the risk of being accused of plagiarism, I confess that some of these came from prior COTH threads!)
50. How many blankets do you own?
51. How many of those blankets...
2006 Forrester LL Bean edition with over 100,000 miles. Sorry, I'm keeping it until it dies of old age!
29. Please check if any of the following are true:

But wait, there's more!
11. Do you believe that it is ethical to take extra hay/bedding, if you feel that your horse is not getting enough? Check one:

It's satire, of course, developed after many, many years of seeing amazing
things at boarding facilities. The whole thing has almost 80 questions.
Here's a small sample of my Prospective Boarders Personality Test-
1. Background history - have you ever:
-Been convicted of a felony? If so, specify details:______________________
Everyone who has experience with public boarding stables knows that there is a disproportionate number of crazy people (barn owners, boarders and trainers) involved. I don't know why this is true,...
In dressage, one word names are perhaps the most common. There is nothing feminine about the word "December." You could also use "Decemberist" which is the name of an Indie band, as well as the...
It really is like saddle shopping. You find one you like, and that fits great, and after a while even new bras of the same make and model are uncomfortable. When I went from a B, to a C, and now to...
I prefer single word names. I think just "December" would be a fine name.
CONGRATULATIONS. It is a wonderful thing, freedom is.
The SA Judiciary defended the judge against her critics. See the article below.
I think that her harsh...
Look up spondylolisthesis. You will see some stuff about "wobbles" which is usually diagnosed in foals, but you will also see that Seattle Slew had it in his cervical spine from arthritis when he...
I think the fact that there is no jury makes it much less likely that Pistorius will become SA's O.J. Simpson.
If you like popularized science, try Bill Bryson's book, "A Short History of Nearly Everything." Fascinating, funny and not too hard to understand for the layperson.
I agree. But apparently some people thought that she may be biased, and wanted a man to preside over the Pistorius trial.
What I find interesting is that SA outlawed jury trials at the end of...
Attenuated at best.
From what I understand, despite her being an experienced jurist, there was criticism of her appointment to preside over this trial because she is a black woman. Apparently, ...
That's not cool. Why on earth would you say something like that?
I'm not from SA, but it seems to me that all questions must go through the judge who in SA is "my lady" or "my lord" instead of "Your Honor." I found this-
Thanks for posting that. The texts are damning, as is the fact that he fired 4 shots and supposedly didn't hear her scream.
I liberally use the Planet Aid boxes.
You took the words right out of my mouth.
I think that he is actually beside himself with remorse and also with the fact that he has ruined his life and may spend the rest of it in prison. His emotion is genuine. But it is also irrelevant....
Many trainers (no matter how accomplished) are very insecure emotionally and/or financially. But if they want to stay in business, they learn not to burn too many bridges.
My advice- don't ever...
