wow, it's only been a few hours since I was here last and y'al added a whole page. Someone is quite talkative today.
I have to comment on the western vs english style. I'm a western guy. Granted I've never tried english, but I've also never had the desire to. To me, it just looks like the rider has a stick up thier butt. It always seemed like "ritzy" riding to me. With the formal attire and everything. I have to wear dress pants and dress shirts for work, I don't want to wear stuff like that when I'm on a horse. Maybe it's just cause all the people who rode english where I grew up were stuck up snobs that thought they, and thier outrageously over priced horses, were better than everyone else. I always pretty much stuck to contesting and trails.
As for allergies, sucks to be you :) I have slight allergies that result in sneezing now and then. My wife would sympathize with you two though. Hers can get bad. Which means that when I do have a barn of my own, I'll have to do all the hay myself. Poppy, I see an allergy theme among you and your animals. Did you say that Lizzy had an issue with allergies and your dog is allergic to a bunch of stuff? I've heard of pets and thier owners being alike, but that's a bit far don't you think? ;)
Oh, and I love camping, with or without horses. I'm actually going camping this coming weekend (it's a weekend long birthday party for me :) )
