    I'm so sorry about your ankle! I'm glad I went right away and got it over with. I'm sure I will get sick of this in a big hurry.

    Heck I've always gone to the gym simply to stay in shape for riding. And that is just WTC. Riding a five gaited show horse is sort of like being strapped into a Nordic-Track with a mind of it's...

    I prefer locally owned and American Made and I vote with my $$. It all works out. When a chain location closes, I don't gloat. It happens all the time and will continue to. Such is life.
