    I try to stay away from these kinds of threads, but I just have to ask...who's gonna pay for this? Who do we expect to do the actual combat?

    I keep trying to understand how this cat on my lap or the dog in front of the wood heater or the pony up to her belly in shavings and alfalfa are exploited. The woman in the video needs to do animal...

    I know the new facility has made people a little nuts with selling property, but I can't believe the prices you've been quoted in the Tryon area.

    As a life long Colts fan, I'm kinda flattered that they thought they'd *need* to cheat to beat us!

    My pony has great feet, is sound barefoot, and just goes better with front shoes.

    My dad always pulled for the Yankees. Being first generation Italian, he was a big DiMaggio fan.

    Forget #3. If she doesn't respect your goals, and doesn't like your pony, you'll never get the best of what she offers.

    Yes! Knitting sundries, books, iPad, pillows, afghans (the knitted kind!) Jack Russell with her own sub nest of chew toys, and an ancient, partly conscious cat. Once the cat is settled, I'm stuck...

    I am drinking "champagne" recommended before Christmas, and you didn't do me wrong-the prosecco is yummy and as economical as requested.
