    Speaking of St. Patrick's Day...

    If, hypothetically speaking, one of your coworkers brings in a tray of cookies from the local supermarket, and if these cookies have green sugar crystals sprinkled all over them, do not think that you will get away with sneaking one - or a few - cookies before lunch without anyone noticing, thanks to said green sugar crystals that will stain your fingers, mouth and lips bright green.

    Or so I've heard.

    Sigh. Off to the ladies room to try and scrub off the evidence.
    In memory of Rebuff (1974-2009)

    Rest in peace, my sweet man

    I have pictures of me with a horse from when I was in Ireland but they aren't scanned.

    I have always been a fan of this Irish horse: Hideaway's Erin Go Bragh. Anyone have any pictures of him to share?

    Well, my Mom was a typical Irish lass -- porcelain skin, freckles and beautiful red hair, RIP!
    Two of my horses are celebrating their birthdays today, both very special boys ...
    Murray's Law, Thoroughbred stallion is 20 today and My Sneak Preview, Thoroughbred gelding, is 16. Happy Birthday to Murray and Sneaky, two great guys!

    HunterJumperGin, those pictures are just gorgeous. Everything is so green, the horses against all the green grass looks great! How long did you spend there?

    No pics of me riding in Ireland (maybe some day).

    But many thanks and Irish blessings for spelling the nickname of Patrick correctly.

    Today would have been my Grandma's 102nd bday had she not passed away in November. I am feeling bittersweet as this is the first St Patty's day in countless years that I haven't spent in the old folks home.

    Ha Ha- I guess that Trinity Degree I have is worth it!

    Thanks everyone!

    I've ridden in Ireland a number of times- but before I had a digital camera.

    Some of my favorite spots are:

    Since I had such a blast riding with them!

    SC, we were only there for a week, but I was ready to stay. Those pictures with the foal and all the green were taken right across from the Bed and Breakfast where we stayed. We quite literally stumbled onto that beautiful castle down by the sea.

    Just have a horse named Dublin (from Dublin, COTHer lost to cancer) and registered as Irish Mosaic. Should see her in my link. I'm a Murphy, so we suit one another.

    Is it me or do 99.9% of cowboys just look better with their hats on?

    I'm a little late posting but my OTTB gelding celebrated his 25th birthday this St Patty's day. It's just about spring here in New England and he gave himself a birthday present by somehow opening up the paddock gate between him and the mares!
