NAH ............. the only time I had blue hair was after a paint fight at school.

Men are far simpler to understand, at puberty 95% of brain cells move south.
The remaining 5% are used for breathing, eating and drinking!

If you're in OH, start by going directly to the north west near Lake Michigan - there, you'll find almost mountainous terrain, (where I live) and, of course, Sleeping Bear Dunes Nat'l Lakeshore, lighthouses, quaint harbor towns, rivers, forests, etc. After enjoying that, head straight up to the Mackinac Bridge, and you'll find yourself in awe as you cross. Be sure to head west on US-2, and you'll have the tip of Lk. MI to your left. Go north to Lake Superior and try to get to Munising as fast as you can so you can treat yourself to something wonderful - Pictured Rocks Nat'l Lakeshore!!! Once you've recovered from being awestruck by that, (not exaggerating! Been there a zillion times, and the parking lot is peppered with license plates from all over the country!), keep heading west! If you have the time, (if you knew what you'd behold you'd cancel every appt. For the next 2 wks!) go up to the magnificent Keweenaw Peninsula!!!! Copper Harbor! Brockway Mountain! All with panoramic vistas of Lake Superior like never imagined. Your life will be enhanced forever by this experience, and I hope you get to any of these places someday :)
Great, thanks for the info! Keeping this for future reference. Who knows, I may end up that way one of these days! An old riding buddy of mine who is not doing well (probably on his way out) used to go up there to spend a week or two and sent me beautiful pictures of the countryside!

Haha... don't think that women and men were made to understand each other, but to procreate the species. "Understanding" is for buddies and girlfriends.

Well, I too am a Texan, and a horse lover. 53 yo and don't even want to imagine being without horses. WE have two horses, an OTTB,(Sonny) he just turned 13 this month, great grandson of Seattle Slew, and a dream to ride on the trails, excepting for his abcess right now. Our other horse, (Big Joe)(my wife's) is a Grulla AQH. He's 23 and still going strong. He thinks he's 13 too! The best part of our day is when we're out with the boys, whether we're riding or not. Of course it's always best when we are riding, but it's always good around the boys! I just can't see us being without horses. I honestly don't know how we've managed to keep it down to two horses up to this point. But that could change at any time. My wife wants a Draft Horse really bad. Hmmm.... wouldn't that be a big birthday present? Thanks for this thread! I loved reading everybodies posts. Ride on!!!!

Going to look at a 7 year old unbroke mustang this weekend - another project and another mouth to feed.
So, what is the draw to the mustang? Just curious.

To satisfy a silly romantic notion I had since I was a kid. I've owned a LOT of horses in the past 30+ years so it's time to try one from childhood.

He is on Craigslist as a rescue and his color and build drew me in. I'm in the market for an addition so the timing is right.


Rescue Group for a Mustang? (Upstate Area)

rrors when replying to ads?]
We need to place a branded mustang gelding with someone who is willing to take him in and finish his training. We are having trouble placing him in a permanent home. All offers will be appreciated. He is gentled, but not under saddle. No charge for adoption to a rescue group. Thank you for trying to help us. We don't want to send him to an irresponsible owner.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
