    BTW, Portia, OT but I always meant to ask: did you name your horse Portia before or after you decided to be a lawyer? http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    I've been waiting a long time to read Willem's explanation; of course he doesn't disappoint!

    LeDuc, it is always a good idea to mind your Ps and Qs near the mares. Is there a stallion in your barn who you could learn from also? I'd hate to see you get hurt trying to make whoopee with the schatzis.

    Do you two realize you are missing some vital machinery to go about making foals?

    Herr Papa Willem Daddy ... Aunti Portia and Oncle Woody

    I sneaked a toplap for a moment. I can't talk to you as I am in the Paszture and I am supposed to be feasting on green grass (I had some very tasty onion grass on a few days ago andandandand I was SICK with FARTS!) They took the little pony away yesterday. They told me she couldn't play because her seasoning was wrong. I didn't understand.

    All I can say is PAAHR-TEE, PAAHR-TEE, PAAHR-TEE.

    Hey Duc-ster, did the pony give you the sign, did she raise her flag for you?

    Happy b-day...did you get some Karroten cake?

    Ah yes, but I also have too much time on my hands (see my male horse nipple thread for proof), and they provide entertainment to fill my extra minutes! Willem is very wise!

    If you're reading it all, you must have a little extra time on your hands as well. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Ah, Willem. Ever wise, as usual. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Although I am going to have to stop reading these posts while I'm eating. It's way too messy and I'm tired of cleaning the computer screen. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    I don't think too many, ahem, horses post here--mostly Willem and his friends. Because he is "ein German horse" Willem posts with a German "accent" that can make his posts a little difficult to read. If you do a search for some of his old posts, though, many of them are REALLY funny--consequently Willem has quite the fan club here.

    And, because he is multi-lingual, bits and pieces of Spanish, Dutch and ? are sprinkled in with the "German".

    HULLO EVERYBODY ...

    Well, I stole Mr. Soldier's toplap and so I am writing to everyone now.

    I am also feeling better after the huge party that was at the barn on Friday night. Yes, there was loud kareoke and lots of boogie-ing down (that's what my new best friend Ms. Grey Mare said to me. She is very handsome and veryveryvery wise.) and someone showed up in surfer clothes and WE ALL THOUGH WILLEM HAD FLOWN IN FROM THE WEST COAST. We cheered when he walked through the barn door. He was wearing dark glasses so we were not sure it was WIllem.

    WAS THAT YOU, Herr Papa Willem Daddy? Did you see me with my party hat? Do you think I'm going to WOW all the fillies andandand have GROUPIES like you too!?

    My dummy Mom came by too. But we just pretended she wasn't there. My Dr. Tim with the soft hands did not come to my party. Oh well. I did not miss him because my dummy Mom was there ... hahaha.

    AUNTI PORTIA!!!! I GREWED!!! I am now 15.2 hands high. ANDANDANDAND I am going to be bigger as I am just a little guy. HAHAHA.

    (Hello arielle. I think the pony DID give me the right sign as she put her hiney to my face. But she had her black blanket on so I couldn't see her waving at me with her tail. Mr. Soldier was there as a chaperone, so everyhting was okay.)

    I am now going to go play leapsandbucks ... who wants to come play ... ???

    I grew up with Walt Disney. Willem answered me once, and I felt like Bambi was still there for me!

    (Everybody always said "At least she has a good imagination and seems happy".)
