    That would be bobbin.

    I have also learned that, in the event one has a few hours to spare, going over to the dressage forum can be highly entertaining.

    And that monkey's should never be given razors.

    I learned that the horse world has walls that secretly close in on you if you are not careful.
    Everyone here is 6 degrees of seperation from someone else

    There are some really awesome people on here, with big hearts

    There are some really snotty bitches on here, with shallow hearts, and a big void in their brain

    Learned about the horrors of New HOlland, and how the human spirit can do good after all.

    I have learned that reading for comprehension is not always easy
    Dobbin is a horse! It can be used interchangeably with Neddy. It's just a generic name for a horse, eg.

    Ooh, I like her dobbin/neddy!

    I learned that:

    The preferred food and cocktail for watching a train wreck unfold is/are margaritas and popcorn.

    When I need a laugh, my fellow COTHers can usually provide it.

    MTG is the cure-all.

    Without COTH I never would have found Thistle who is now beautiful and chubby.

    That COTH is addictive. My job is incredibly boring and I spend the brunt of my day here.

    I learned that the more time you spent tying a reply, the higher the chances the COTH board wil have an error and eat the post:

    Gnalli has the same taste in books as my Nana!! I read her Sherilyn Kenyon books every time they come out. (She's blind, hence I read them) I skip the kissy parts because that's gross. She can imagine.

    NH does not = New Hampshire...

    Dressage board posters seem to strike fear into others... like Godzilla or King Kong. Overly large, white teeth being bared in your general direction. But as Monty Python likes to sing...

    "We're knights of the Round Table, we dance whene'er we're able. We do routines and chorus scenes with footwork impec-cable, We dine well here in Camelot, we eat ham and jam and Spam a lot. / We're knights of the Round Table, our shows are for-mi-dable. But many times we're given rhymes that are quite un-sing-able, We're opera mad in Camelot, we sing from the diaphragm a lot. / In war we're tough and able, Quite in-de-fa-ti-gable. Between our quests we sequin vests and impersonate Clark Gable / It's a busy life in Camelot"

    The word Inverness conjures up things that are, well, strange to say the least. I just realised how deeply that the Inverness thread is imbedded in my mind when I went to read another board (strictly racing) and Inverness was the title of the thread, and while I logically knew it had to be the track, well..........LOL

    I agree, NANAs of anyone should NOT be reading the mushy parts of those books. Have you gotten the new one, Dark Side of the Moon? Oh, and you know she also writes as Kinley McGregor. I laugh at her books as much as I do COTH

    Bobbin! Stop, you're killing me!

    Seriously, I appreciate the laughs here, planned or not.

    And the help with my young one's abscess, training, dew poisoning.

    Meeting some wonderful, wonderful people. The support on this board when I lost my 27 year old CoCo is something I carry in my heart.

    Okay, back to Bobbin! Aha-ha-ha-ha!

    Ha! But so's the difference between cape and rape, rap and rat, two and too, bruin and ruin, ship and ....., and muck and .....! One of the reasons I am such a nerd about words.
