    So glad it is the weekend. Mom is out of town, and my brother is going to see our dad today. I didn't want to go.
    The boyfriend and I are going to chill at my house before he has to go to work tonight.

    I'm getting very impatient about getting a new saddle. I'm tempted to go ahead and put it on eBay, even though I won't be ready to buy a new one until May.

    Watched Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 last night! It's a lot better then the first one. That one's stupid. Some kids from my school are background people in the second one!

    It's so sunny but my parents haven't taken me to the barn since Tuesday when Cheyenne and I had our fight. We're too busy with 'selling-house-prep'. I get to go today though because I have to do chores though so that's exiting!!

    Yesterday I couldn't get to sleep so I drew a whole bunch of horse pictures! Wanna see them?

    We did some jumping and the horse that I rode decided to take off a little. I ended up to ride her straight toward the wall of our indoor area several times so I could stop her. Then I got nervous which made her even more friskier and that made me more nervous etc... a snowball effect you know.

    A fine of $25 can be levied for flirting. This old law specifically prohibits men from turning around on any city street and looking "at a woman in that way." A second conviction for a crime of this magnitude calls for the violating male to be forced to wear a "pair of horse-blinders" wherever and whenever he goes outside for a stroll.

    In Guernee, Illinois, it is illegal for women weighing more than 200 pounds to ride horses in shorts.

    In Kentucky, it is illegal for a woman to appear in a bathing suit on a highway unless she is: escorted by at least two police officers; armed with a club; or lighter than 90 pounds or heavier than 200 pounds. The ordinance also specifically exempts female horses from such restrictions.

    In Omega, New Mexico, every woman must "be found to be wearing a corset" when riding a horse in public! A doctor is required to inspect each woman to make sure that she is complying with the law.


    Pennsylvania law states: ``Any motorist who sights a team of horses coming toward him must pull well off the road, cover his car with a blanket or canvas that blends with the countryside, and let the horses pass. If the horses appear skittish, the motorist must take his car apart, piece by piece, and hide it under the nearest bushes.''

    In Hartsville, Illinois, you can be arrested for riding an ugly horse.

    In the state of Queensland, Australia, it is still constitutional law that all pubs (hotel/bar) must have a railing outside for patrons to tie up their horse.

    Pattonsburg, Missouri, Revised Ordinances, 1884: "No person shall hallo, shout, bawl, scream, use profane language, dance, sing, whoop, quarrel, or make any unusual noise or sound in such manner as to disturb a horse."

    Abilene, Kansas, City Ordinance 349 declares: "Any person who shall in the city of Abilene shoot at a horse with any concealed or unconcealed bean snapper or like article, shall upon conviction, be fined."

    HONEST HARRY'S NEW & USED HORSES

    I can save you money on gas!

    Alright folks, step right up! You don't want to pay $4.69 for gas, no problem, I have the perfect vehicle for you. Needs no gas, no oil, or even a battery, just a little grass and water will do these animals fine. Now everyone has different needs, so choose from the following models:

    1. Trail Horse - Your average run around town animal. Has the energy to get where you are going, the brain to find the best way to go, big enough to carry the normal sized American.

    2. The Arabian - perfect for those who travel long distances in a day and try to multi task while driving. Although the Arabian may not go to your home or office with out specific instruction, it WILL go somewhere.

    3. The Draft - Calling all soccer moms. This big guy can carry the whole team, their gear and snacks. Just like the big machines, this guy will require more fuel, and his shoes will be more expensive than the compact model.

    4. The Western Pleasure - The right car for the high end white collar workers. This animal works harder and requires more special knowledge so only the best can figure this out. Be sure to take your cell phone. You won't be stuck in traffic, you just won't be getting anywhere fast.

    5. The Parelli - Salesmen, stay at home moms, and high school kids will all enjoy this dream. You can load him down with flapping Wal-mart bags, ask him to walk in places a horse won't fit, and you can dance with him as you listen to the latest tunes.

    6. The Ranch - The most dependable animal available. He will go where ever you ask him to, at whatever speed is appropriate. You can tie him to the stop sign and he will be there when you get back. Best of all, this model has been specially engineered to be able to go without water for days and stay fat and slick by eating sagebrush and dead prairie grass.

    Of course all models are available in base colors (sorrel, bay, black) Special order colors are available (dun, gray, palomino) and for an additional fee, custom paint jobs are also available (overo, tobiano, blanket, leopard).

    No horse is sold with a warranty, however maintenance plans are available in the event brakes, steering, or accelerator fail.


    Sorry for that....it's long

    We've one city here in Finland in which it's forbidden to ride naked on Sundays - the legend tells that the law has its roots back in history when our army still had horses and someone decided that it'd be a good idea to take the horses to swim on some warm Sunday - and then whole the company of horses and their less dressed riders rode during the city to the lake where they tended to swim. The law was applied on the next Monday.

    Legend or truth - who knows . Actually there are even some pictures (nothing inappropriate) in that historical website. Pictures 48-50: Hei Hoplaa! - Hevoset ja niiden hoito
