You're lucky then. I know a couple of rambunctious youngsters then I geuss. They both get "forgetful" after even a couple weeks out of work (and they're mustang and paint. I don't even wanna know what my 13 year old was like at 5 or 6. Haha!
) . I can only wonder what six months of fermenting on a young arabs mind is like
