    haven't had time to weigh in but bumping!
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

Thread that has impacted you the most on a personal or equine level. not sure, I'll get back to you.... 3. Thread that just would NOT die but you really wished it would! pretty much all of them dies quiet quickly, really not everlasting one this year....but in general, the ones with more imagination and implication than actual facts 4. Thread that you wish had never died. see No 1... we just got warmed up good! 5. Most Eye-Catching thread title. nothing really, not many hanging balls... 6. Topic that has given you recurring nightmares. not so much the thread titles, but the frequent occurrence of insane violence we witnessed this year. 7. Best “Off Topic Day” Thread. 8. Best COTH username. 9. Most annoying COTH username. 10. Most inspirational poster. 11. Troll of the Year. 12. Poster whose threads you look most forward to reading. Superminion is one of them. BuddyRoo another. Bluey and JSwan always have something good to say and I have grown fond of DaydreamBeliever 13. Poster who you want to come back as in your next life. see above. 14. Poster who you most want to meet in person but haven't yet. Same 15. Poster whose horse you would jump in front of a train for. No train jumping.... 16.

In general - how was 2012 for you? it was rough, to say the least. There have been a lot of deaths around me, some with more impact, some with less, but the sum of them was staggering! On the other hand, we have accomplished a lot, too this year, in terms of personal growth. Some things might have to take a little while longer to ripen, but in all, the framework is there, i think!

    17. Most valuable friend: jn4jenny. In addition to finding me an instructor, she has constructively advised me on my riding, found me a saddle, made me laugh almost daily, kept me company on trail rides, and driven across town with me to clean rescue horses' stalls. She's changed my life by helping me return to riding. I think I'll adopt her

    Loved the OT canoeing thread, and also remember the OT one where the guy came over the OP's house, and used the potty....and I mean, REALLY used the potty. It would stink up the OP's whole place...it was a (weekly?) meeting of some sort?...And then I think the OP's Mom mentioned this fellow liked the OP.

    Um, yeah, "I've Got the Sh*ts for you"....

    When I read this thread last year so many people mentioned Leena that I had to look up her thread. It was so inspiring and I go back on a regular basis when needed as well as anxiously await updates.

    I also loved the canoeing thread, funny stuff.

    Overall I am so thankful for COTH - the wisdom, laughter and tears that you all offer is so appreciated. Gosh knows you all have saved me vet and therapist bills!

    I'd like to add: #10) most inspirational poster: For me it would have to be Zu Zu, I personally consider her the CoTH cheerleader. Always positive and colorful to boot! , and I guess she would fall into the category of which poster I'd like to meet as well, along with Tamara from Tennessee.

    Just love ZU ZU. I just get a "hop, skip, waddle and a whoomph" in my step hauling out the water buckets after reading one of your warm & fuzzies!
