    Talking **Official Thread of the COTH Adult Playdate. Come out and meet Brazilian Wedding!**

    Hi Guys.... we have worked out the details...

    Date: Saturday March 10th

    Time: 11:30 am on to whenever....

    Where: Judy's farm... Three Plain Bays Inc. Directions here:

    http://www.threeplainbays.com/contact.php

    What: Bring your horses to play in the free jumping chute, meet Brazilian Wedding, the winning horse of the RRTC and enjoy food, drinks and fun with fellow COTH'ers and lovers of OTTB's

    Rain or shine we will "play." Understanding that if it rains we'll likely be locked inside sharing horse stories and watching videos, dvd's or whatever.

    What to bring: Your horse if it likes to jump!! And a covered dish or drinks.

    Any questions, shoot a line to me or Retreadeventer or Judybigredpony.

    All are welcome but please no dogs.

    I'm sure Judy and Retread will chime in if I am forgetting something.

    Hope to see you there!!

    That sounds like a blast! Darn that it's on the same day as Southern Pines Horse Trials, I want to go

    Guess I'll have to make a special trip up when I'm shopping again.

    Oh I wish!!! It's Judy's facility, horses, time, rings etc.

    I am just a little organizing monkey!!

    But wow that was a fun powerball-esque vision for a sec.....

    I think I'll go back to that daydream!!!!

    *pout* who wants to fly me out from Oregon?

    I'd love to meet some of you people, but I think my head would explode just being in the presence of such knowledge and experience!

    Xctrygirl you are not a monkey...you are more educated, sophisticated and together than me...I spent the day buying cat food and salt blocks, sold a horse or 2 and free schooled Brazilian for a few minutes..now I need a nap...

    OK Judy since you brought it up....

    What I used to do for work in a day:

    Manage 3-7 Mexican grooms, oversee 15 racehorses, gallop at least 7, get 2 (minimum) to the races, saddle them pass on instructions to jocks (that alone is like herding cockroaches) and then be there as they run, cool down and prep to ship back to the home base.

    Oh and when done that, ride Lad. Go home take care of 2-3 dogs, boyfriend and myself and read up on COTH.

    What I do now in a day:

    Herd humans to work optimally, ie.. do all their little stuff. Book travel, schedule meetings, renew memberships, subscriptions etc. Pay Bills, bill clients. Balance all bank account (more than 5). Watch for credit card fraud, pay attention to all machines and office space make sure it all works. Fix or get it fixed when it doesn't. Drive to pick up lunch daily. Today and yesterday's special task was finding 20 odd fellow alums from main bosses grad school, track them all down and update their contact info so they can receive reunion event info. And oh yea it needed to be done ASAP.

    And after all that, go ride Lad, Petey, and then home 3 dogs, boyfriend, catch up on COTH and read my newly purchased books from Barnes and Noble.

    The 10th will be a lovely rest day for me!!!!

    Congrats on selling some!!!!

    I wanna come! I don't know if bringing Juliet just to hang out somewhere new would be good practice or not. Her first show is on the 29th so we get to do it for real soon enough.

    Sounds great, I'd love to come (w/out horse). I have a saddle fitting at 11am a little west of Baltimore, so I wouldn't be able to get there until 2ish. Would that work or do you expect to be breaking up by then?

    Working on arrangements for the trip down. Em, if you need, I can drive you up to NYC if you can get back.

    Judy, which ones did you sell? I love the giant grey one. He looks like one my trainer has, but bigger.

    Well I don't know anyone and I don't have a horse to bring, but I'd love to meet some horsey people in my general area. It's only about a 2 hour drive for me and I generally have no plans on Saturday.
    I'm afraid I might chicken out at the last minute though; I'm not the best at meeting new people haha

    Ellemayo,
    I don't know these cothers in real life, either! That's part of the fun. When I have the coth hunt newbies visit, I don't know the faces, either. Introductions are like a spy flick, as we know each other by our coth names. Soon as the horsetalk begins, we belong.
