I love the great pictures and story! What a fine day! You have so many interesting places to explore and finding great eats like tangelos just tops it off!
Do you see any common ancestors with any of your girls?@SueC, I like exploring pedigrees so looked up Albatross to see how far back you’d have to go to find Morgan. Looks like when you get to his 5th generation back (horses generally from the early part of the 1900s), some of them have a parent or grandparent that was a Morgan.
I'm glad you're enjoying the reports! It's great when there's a bunch of people living in different interesting parts of the world writing journals where you can see the scenery and hear about working on the land and living with animals, and a bit of philosophy and cooking and veggie growing etc, and you end up corresponding in a group like this - many of us also live out in the sticks so this is a big social outlet for me too and I've become really fond of people here. They are like your favourite characters in a book except they are real and you can talk to them!I love the great pictures and story! What a fine day!

Spending most of his stallion career at Walnut Hall Farm, Kentucky, Guy Axworthy had two sons who were prominent in extending this sire line - Truax, the grandsire of Titan Hanover, who sired Hickory Smoke, and Guy McKinney, the first Hambletonian winner, who is the grandsire of Florican. Florican's sons and grandsons are keeping this line alive. In particular, Sierra Kosmos, Florican's greatgrandson sired super-mares No Nonsense Woman 3,1:54 ($1.26 million) and Fern.
I loved this story. Whenever I'm volunteering with the vets at an endurance ride, it puts everyone in a great mood when a character of a horse comes up to be examined. It makes it so much more fun when it's clear the horse is thoroughly enjoying the ride as much as the rider is!You should have seen Chip. He looked like an Anglo-Arabian and competed in a short endurance ride between racing engagements. He was neighing so much with enthusiasm at being with so many horses they couldn't hear his heart rate but passed him based on everything else.
Hands and feet turning black?? Serious?Wow! That is interesting ancestry! I did a far look back on Bones’s once. I did an excell sheet and went as far back as records were kept. It was fun and yet I felt a bit odd that I was much more interested in that than in any personal ancestry. Lol
I think it’s good Brett went for a walk today. My first bout of covid ended up with some pretty nasty pneumonia. I learned later that one is supposed to force themselves up with covid, or the pneumonia sets in the lungs. So, when my family got it later it was a good thing we were gathering cows and they simply had to get up and work, and none of them ended up with the bad pneumonia. I mean, it was obvious when my hands and feet started turning black.
This round I kept myself moving all but one day. That day my migraine was so bad I simply couldn’t without a lot of throwing up.
from -You’re Doing it Wrong is an outrageous tour through the centuries of bonkers and bad advice handed down and foisted upon women, told as only Kaz Cooke can – with humour and rage, intelligence and wit.
Come with Kaz on a laugh-out-loud frolic through centuries of terrible advice, from 14th-century clergy to the Kardashians (wear a dress made of arsenic, do some day-drinking, have sex with a billionaire biker, worry about your vagina wrinkles). It’s also a roar against injustice, a rallying cry for sisterhood and a way to free ourselves from ludicrous expectations and imposed perfectionism.
Kaz’s own 30-year history of interest and experience in advice – from her newspaper etiquette column to best-selling books, including Up the Duff and the Girl Stuff series – and years of archives and research have culminated in a full-colour, exuberant shout of a book with hundreds of wacky and sobering historical photos of objects and instructions.
You’re Doing It Wrong examines what we’re told to do (change shape, shoosh, do all the housework), and what we’re not supposed to do (frown, have pockets, lead a country). It covers sex & romance, paid work, fashion & beauty, health advice, housework, and a motherlode of mad parenting instructions – from witchcraft to beauty pageants, with a side of aviatrixes. Put the kettle on and settle in.
