So I am eating dinner with my friend and we start talking about racehorses. She is going on and on about Zenyatta. I ask her if she knows about Ruffian. She said no. I am thinking "I am think yeah Zenyatta is awesome, but you don't know who Ruffian is???" I tell her she is one of the greatest racehorses of all time! Then she butts in with "I got to meet Zenyatta" in a rather rude tone(I already knew that, seen the pictures, but she didn't need to repeat in the rude tone).Then I start talking about Man O' War and Eclipse, then she starts about Secretariat, then I tell her, that Man O' War Eclipse were way before him and possibly greater than him.I also started talking about the stallions that helped create Thoroughbreds.. Then she pretty much tunes me out.
I guess my knowledge isn't as important :/ Its like when I tried to tell her about "Teacup" Yorkies, because she wants one, she just didn't want to. I have friends who aren't into dogs and horses like me.
I love horse racing. I was talking about horse racing with her and her mom at another time, but they kept talking to me as if I didn't know anything about horse racing.They also kept insisting that Zenyatta's foal will be amazing just like here, and that he/she will have Secretariat in him/her, that will also make the foal great. Like repeating things, and I gave them the "I-already-know-this" look. I don't really say anything back, because they are the kind of people who think they know alot when they don't. No I am not trying to say Zenyatta isn't amazing she is, and Secretariat was also a great horse.
I guess this was more of a rant than I don't know.lol. I heard that the trainer of Secretariat said that Ruffian is even better than Secretariat. Not trying to shoot down his greatness(I heard he wasn't that good when it came to producing foals, as in many didn't turn into champions like him. Don't know about that, I heard that from people who were in the horse breeding world).
But anywho, feel much better.lol. I love my friend, but sometimes she gets on my nerves, so do my other friends.lol. I bet I annoy them with my horse and dog talk.lol!
