I've learned that horses really ARE as fragile and at risk of getting crippled or dying in a dramatic way, every minute of every day, and any little tiny thing out of the ordinary can be their downfall -- just like it seems in all the books about horse care, diseases, and ailments.
Mine have always been such tough, healthy critters..... I had no idea they weren't normal.
-MOST threads will be taken the wrong way and will get everyone on this forum to brow beat the OP for days! (it's a nice show to watch! )
-on a lighter note, I learn't that Jetsmom's bf beleives that shaving his "bits and peices" will make him look higher in the saddle
You know, I've never been part of a bulletin board before COTH. So I have learned a few good lessons.
-No one takes my naming suggestions to heart.
-I could have a fan club if I was wittier and had more pictures. Or I could be hated with a passion usually reserved for Torrid Affair participants.
-Everything I say can and will be used against me in the court of COTH.
-The breeders on this board have some AWESOME horses.
-Posting is much better done under the influence of a few glasses of wine.
-Reading replies is much better done under the influence of a few martinis
-Everyone on here seems to read COTH at work and I find myself strangely doing the same. And wishing for a martini.
-Turn the volume down because the videos can be awfully loud if you're surfing in the Sea of Cubicles.
(jetsmom's bf DOES appear higher, because trying to sit on all that itchy regrowth... now that's some kind posture improver)
the things that i had not ought to
i do because i ve gotto
* It's amazing how much tack you can find in purple or pink, if you just know where to look
* "Snarky" is now part of my vocabulary
* I have learned so much about horse slaughter and equine/animal laws in this country, and have started taking an active role by regularly writing to my legislators!
* If you start a naming thread for a horse or barn, and stipulate that it must only be so long, and must have/cannot have certain letters in it; there will be people who completely disregard said stipulations and suggest names that don't fit your mold anyway.
Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion; you must set yourself on fire
In defense of Mr Jetsmom, I believe it was GoDogGo, that said manscaping made him look taller...
And just in case I ever run into any fellow COTHer's (when I am accompianied by Mr Jetsmom,) that read that thread...IT WAS A SPOOF!!!! Do NOT stare at Mr Jetsmom's area of "Dangly Bits" pondering the possible lack of "foliage"...Please!!!! I don't want him banning me from posting!!
