Good gosh Amy, even the chicken is gray(ish)!

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.

LOL... My life is ALL about shades of grey!!! LOL

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Wow - very deep. As all of ours are but there are other colors. You would never have liked Patch - he was black and white.

Jen, for all around performance and trail riding you can't beat a QH. I have to admit that I have always had a thing for the Arabian but more of the Polish line which is heavy boned and larger then the Egyptian.

On the other hand, the most horrific crash I've ever had on horseback happened last year on an Arab I went to try. I was unconscious for over 5 min, I cracked my pelvis, 2 ribs, a concussion, and bruises everywhere. I had to sleep in a chair for over a month and TG for pain killers. I had such a fear of getting back on a horse again that it took 6 months and a lot of will power to step into a saddle. I never did heal completely.

Bill I'm so glad you were able to find a great trade! I'm sure Bobo will be thrilled to not get beat up anymore.

Actually, I was wondering what kind of cookies you like. Very sorry to hear about your accident, though. I understand your preference to QHs. My previous mare was an appy and she would do anything, go anywhere and nothing ever spooked her. When I first got Stella she was like this most of the time, (sometimes still is) but has improved greatly in the past year.

OK, here's a pic of the pony, they were calling him Silver Bullet but we need a new name. He has a real silvery mane and a flaxen tail. It will be interesting to see how he ages.
