    Islamists and terrorists of various stripes are annoying and dangerous, but they cannot compare with Russia in terms of real danger. I don't think Mr. Romney was carried away at all-on the contrary,...

    short in the rise vs. short-waisted

    "Short-waisted" means that the distance from your natural waist to your neckline is shorter than average for your height/size. The OP (and me, and apparently many more people than I had thought) are...

    some dogs would

    I am a geologist, and I used to do lots of fieldwork (which means, according to my mother, "traipsing around in the mountains all day").

    I left my rock hammer on an outcrop, and didn't notice...

    I agree that music is distracting, and hearing foot fall is useful.

    If you are selling an eventer, hunter or jumper that is at a certain level, show it jumping a course at that height, preferably...

    Thoroughbred mare

    I love my OTTB mare. She is 15, has raced, been a pony club horse, evented to training, and was a trail horse. Whatever I ask her to do, she tries her heart out. She never spooks, bucks, or acts like...

    maybe the OP really wants to know

    I know your answer is meant to be funny, but I live a long way from any recognized packs, and I know a bunch of cowboys who hunt bears and mountain lions with hounds. They aren't wealthy by any...

    Thanks, judybigredpony

    Also, one of the things I liked about Oh My my Oh is that she started racing when she was two, and has raced five or six times a year every year. Is this the sign of a sound horse? There aren't any...

    OP mare Oh My My Oh?

    :confused:I am confused-I'm the OP, and the mare I posted about doesn't have Unbridled in her pedigree. Is she one that has enough bone and shortish pasterns?

    The Oh My My Oh photos are bad,...

    I am not ready for the off the track journey, but I am trying to learn so that when I am ready, I know more than I do now.

    What about this girl?

    I am a mare person. I showed this mare to one of the trainers at my barn. She didn't like her but couldn't tell me why. I think the mare looks useful, and I thought that turf horses were more likely...

    language pet peeves

    I work for a large, scientific organization. I read many papers and reports. Here are some words that make me want to take up heavy equipment operating instead of my chosen profession, with preferred...

    Long format 3-day

    Ah, but then there would be no excuse for not having the long-format 3-day event, because they could use part of the endurance course.

    Mounted archery

    I think it would be easier to teach a rider to shoot, than to teach an archer to ride.
  16. goats vs sheep

    I have had goats, and I have had sheep. I like sheep. The goats we have had were funnier, but much harder to keep in because they liked to climb and jump. I also found goats a lot harder to handle to...

    Are the courses posted any where? I'm watching the replays and while the camera work is really great, I would like to see a map of the courses,because I am too slow of brain to figure them out while...

    Yes!

    Barrel racing! And mounted archery would be amazing.

    A few late-night thoughts

    I am glad that there are many different countries represented in the equestrian sports, and I don't care if they bought high-level horses to get there. It helps keep those sports in the Olympics.

  20. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

    THIS.
    Clayton Fredericks had a fall, for heaven's sake, and Lucinda had a runout. Mark Todd nearly had a miss on the last fence (since he's Mark Todd he didn't, but he could have). It was a tough...

    And to Michael Jung!

    It was a great competition, and so much fun to watch.

    If I had a Patey hat, I'd wear it every chance I got.

    I watched it, I'm a bit confused

    First, can I just apologize for NBC commentators? They were so horrible, I just cringed.

    I thought the opening ceremony had its moments, but I thought that the giant baby head was weird, the whole...
  23. Yellowstone!

    I'm from Cody.

    If you want to see wildlife, get up early, just at dawn. Dawn is also the time of least traffic, and cool weather. Stay outside of the park, and day trip into the park, packing your...

    New perspective

    I confess that I will never see our 25' Grumman aluminum lake canoe quite the same way again.
  25. Maybe not the best idea

    In my experience, this is not a good idea. A nasty person is good at being nasty, and the OP has had little practice being nasty. Furthermore, nasty people are often really good at hiding their...
