    Oh, really? Well, since he's in MY back yard, if y'all are riding him for me, why is he still such a greenie? SOMEBODY's not doing a very good job

    Absolutely! But I wonder if the Invisibles thread has now overcome the size of Peterving's welcome thread???

    New words! Aghasted being one of my absolute faves!

    Where's the fruitbat is brilliant (thanks Winged Panda), and I use it quite frequently.

    So not only have I learned a lot about other folks and their disciplines, I'm learning a whole new vocabulary.
    The plural of anecdote is not data.

    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

    That for some reason I tend to kill a thread.... or maybe I just jump in too late.

    That there are a lot of really caring people on this BB that really have your best interest at heart but there are also some really nasty hateful people too.

    That no matter the situation or experience, I'm not alone.

    WTF? - best phrase ever

    That I use "quote marks" too often.

    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.

    * 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

    Default I have learned...

    That:
    1)I am not crazy for taking my profit from selling a house in the Big City and moving to Land of the Hoosiers so my horses could live there too

    2)I am not the only single woman of "middle" years doing this by herself
    (and LOFFING it!)

    3)horsepeople are the most compassionate yet mismatched group of like-minded people on this planet

    4)there is no such thing as a stupid question here...um, maybe there is but y'all know how to answer one without making the asker feel like a dope!

    5)my employers have no idea how much time I spend on their dime doing what I'm doing right now

    "jingles" proves that most ppl on this board believe in a higher power, whether they knew it (or will admit it) or not.

    Jingles are a good thing.

    I'm have to agree -- Jingles are a good thing.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

    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!!

    Oh, I agree that Jingles are a "GOOD THING".

    But NOT the implication that they are related to "belief in a higher power."

    Default I think this thread is a record for me!

    • Gypsy Vanners poop golden butterflies
    • Tack trunks can be difficult to ride
    • There ARE people who are bigger bit whores than me.
