    I've tried to search but can't find the greasy balls thread after seeing it mentioned by several posters (plus the title is just too interesting). Anyone have a link handy?

    Thanks!

    One of my favorite threads was about the woman who purchased a saddle for her daughter on Ebay. The purchased saddle was allegedly "stolen goods".

    There's quite a few, but I don't know all of their coth names (for a vague reason..)

    20. Thing(s) you would change most about the BB.

    Not so much drama/snark. sigh. Women.

    23. In general - how was 2011 for you?

    Um, not so great really, not so great at all. But I survived, marginally.

    Oh thank you Lori. I still get all giggly over my little mare. She has brought a lot of sunshine to what was a bit of a tumultuous 7 or 8 years in horses. For the first time in a long time, I'm actually looking ahead and making plans.

    I'm really enjoying her.... and I probably never would have jumped back into horses, or into Morgans, if it hadn't been for the support of so many COTHers.... yourself included!!

    I've met so many cool people via COTH, have made some great friends, and am so thankful for that.

    Can't believe we are already at the end of another year....!

    ChocoMare, thank you so much! I feel honoured! I love COTH but it's been tough on here this year! Lots of trainwrecks in the SHB section!

    I haven't met anyone personally as I'm in Ireland but lots of people on here I'd love to meet. One day. I know I can be very thankful for a great group of online horse friends that have been very supportive of me. Lots to be said for that.

    And always Leena is the most courageous poster in my book. But so many people have overcome some hardships this year.

    There were not as many funny threads this year... you know, the rib-splitting "I think I wet my pants" funny, of years gone by.

    My favorites have ALWAYS been the chicken threads, BTW. Odd, since I don't have chickens, only horses, dog and cats.

    Favorite poster? JSwan, hands down!

    I always appreciate Jen4Jenny's detailed information on saddles! I have no idea how she knows as much as she does, but thanks for sharing!

    Jen is the best! That girls know everything about everything, seriously. She's given me awesome advice on everything from saddles to childcare. And most importantly, she is incredibly kind, generous and level headed. I'm glad I've gotten to know her over the years.

    My favorite thread title? "My ass has fleas!" I think it was in the Horse Care forum.

    And to add my own COTH heartwarming story, I used the Giveaway forum to re-home one of my horses after being in a really bad boarding barn and having them lose a TON of weight. I couldn't afford board on two horses anywhere else, and within a week, Bobby had left for his new home with Wendell'sGirl. Last week, I had to put my heart horse down after several colic episodes (4 in a week) and a perforated ulcer. WG contacted me a few days later and offered Bobby back after putting a ton of weight on him and I just picked him up yesterday! How is that for nicest thing ever? I love COTH!

    ETA: hahaha, ok I found it. Fleas on my ass?

    I owe so much to COTH for giving me a place to share my grief after I lost my horse.

    Also, I always know where to come for a good laugh or a cry.

    Thanks this year to getting to know a little bit better Laurierace and Jenarby.

    Ten years, and I *finally* make the Best of COTH thread!

    Granted, it was a thread that made a total left turn on the second post and lost *me* completely, but .... hallelujah, the blind squirrel has finally found an acorn!!!

    My favorite thread started this time in 2010 and spilled into 2011, about a certain trainer in Indiana. Wonder if all the photos on her current site are ummm truly current

    I just took a look and pretty sure Chase the Clouds is still represented as her horse of high jump record fame, amazing!

    Wow, really?!?

    That takes some nerve. I wonder if the picture was up the whole time, or if it was taken down temporarily until she thought the whole thing had blown over.
