I LOVE these stories!!! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif I also think you should write a book (or series of books) particularly aimed at children. I know there are several gifted artists on this site - where are you??? You guys need to get together and write/illustrate The $700 Pony chronicles. Too funny.
The great Bluegrass State. Or Commonwealth. Whatever.
Cookie McClung is one of my favorite equestrian writers, and you, Reynard Ridge, are right up there next to her.
Please, please, please publish this stuff!
I graduate from law school next December, and will be happy to be your agent if you like!
As for the JRT vs. Corgi gang war, just kick them every once in a while & they'll learn to stay out of your way. That's what I do with my little Terrier-ists! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif
To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.
With the bay mare moved in today with my TB/Paint and bay filly girlfriend, I expect my baby to have some anxiety as well as she is pooh-poohed at by the bay social club ladies. At least that's what it looked like as I http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif down the driveway to work this afternoon. Maybe that type herd prejudice anxiety could be a future chapter for you.
Bravo! After losing electricity and the cell phone today and driving over a branch that still is embedded under the car, I needed a good laugh. Thanks!
Next December, adamsmom! You make me feel I'm the only human not moving (forward) through life.
Just to make sure, would you mind if I printed out the "installments" on the adventures of the $700 pony for myself? I keep telling the people at the barn about it, but so far no one's been here to read about her. - I'm pretty sure they think I'm crazy now.
If anyone on this list does not deserve a sad night, it is you. Your stories have brightened up many a day for me, and I always look for more on the wonderful life of the very lucky- albeit xanax-needing pony.
However, if I were being run at by a pack of 2 yo's with cider and graham crackers, I might lose it. So, you (at least in my mind) have a pony that appears well grounded...chickens and all.
Now that barn might do me in if I were a horse.... went christmas shopping yesterday at Victorias secret covered in hay, slobbered on, with muddy, MI paddock boots on. I was helped rather quickly, much to my 11 yo boys delight.... Never thought too much about it. Oh well....
Hoping today is better for you, Reynard Ridge.... from the cold cold state on MI.
We are being sued by one of our neighbors (LOOOONNNGGGGG story). As I am not the type of person who could ever imagine being involved on either side of a lawsuit (other than perhaps the time my horse single hoofedly tried to demolish an SUV, I was a little worried then), it was a bit of a shock. So I was sad.
Been there, except mine was the $200 pony! She ganged up with the fanciest pony of the richest boarder and taught that pony how not to come in with the rest of the horses. And - REVENGE-the "horrible pony" outjumped ALL their fancy butts in a knock down and out class.
Your time is coming!
Perhaps this will cheer you up... ours was a free pony until it kicked the puppy and broke her femur ($3,000 for surgery) then was bitten on the nose by a rattlesnake ($3,000 for emergency tracheotomy and hospitalization). I love him to pieces and wouldn't trade him for the world.
Keep up the great writing. Getting sued is inititally shocking and upsetting and then you get on with it. I sold a guy a horse once and he ended up sueing me for over $400,000. He was a jerk. It happens.
