    AMHA Gelding Incentive

    What's not to love about showing a gelding in the Amatuer classes at World! Just got my check in the mail today for about $150 for one gelding that took 3rd in AOTE and 5th in Amatuer and it doesn't cost ANYTHING to enroll. They only pay Amateurs and geldings the two things that I feel should...

    Adding AOTE or splitting Amateur AMHR

    Just curious to see what everyone opinions were. Splitting the Amateur classes will give some breathing room for the newer exhibitor but will not exclude the horses that are handed off from the trainer to the Level 1 or 2 exhibitor. I've noticed more and more trainer horses in Amateur classes...

    Late 2010 foal announcements

    I didn't breed very many mares last year but had to share this one as he delights me to no end. He is out of our Redi or Not son and his first time dam is a full sister to my Pheonix horse. I'm not convinced what color he is, he has such heavy sabino ticking in his spots that his color looks...

    AMHR horse to become "little" Black Stallion

    Seems like a AMHR registered miniature horse will now live at the Kentucky Horse Park as part of a literacy program. He's to take on the role of Walter Farley's, Black Stallion and interact with the public. Thought it was pretty neat and had to pass along. Here is a link to the article...

    To dye or not to dye

    I personally love the "frosting" and think it's sharp but others think it should all be dyed black as the frosting chops him up a bit. Thoughts

    Why go shopping

    Got myself into a bit of a jam when the stallion that I had planned on using with my Cowboy daughters ended up not working. Before running all over looking for "something" for six mares I stopped at my brothers house as I knew he had a stud he wasn't going to be using. My "freebie" stud cost...

    Silver Bay

    When he was born I thought he was a regular bay so he ended up getting his mane and tail dyed for the local fall show. As that winter progresses (last) as I use permant dye there was a greater and greater line of dye in his tail. So I chalked him up to a silver bay BUT he has no where near...

    Now I'm pretty competent on colors, note the use of the word competent rather than an expert. I have a palomino mare that I've established carries silver as her 07 filly palomino filly's has turned into the lightest of silver buckskin. Anyways her 09 baby comes along and I'm guessing he's a...

    Terrible sign of the times

    Got this today and thought I would pass it along, I'm sure any help would be appreciated. Several rescue organizations in Nebraska are working to save over 300 horses that have been abandoned and are in dire need of food and medication attention. Approximately 150 have already died and several...

    Anyone have antenna only TV?

    In effort to stay in a budget I decided I would give up either my cable or high speed internet a year ago. I couldn't imagine going back to "low" speed so cable got kicked. Now that regular analog broadcasting is getting kicked and if you have an older TV you need a converter box and the...

    Financial investments

    If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago you would have $49.00 left. With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00. With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left. But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank...

    Any Scary show buffs out there?

    I love scary shows so when NBC started a new show called Fear Itself I was more than happy, however they have not lived up to the title being cliche and predictable but I LOVE the new one. Anyone else catch it on Thursday? I came in to feed the kids and ended up watching the whole thing and...

    Who wants to help me

    I was lucky enough to get my boy photographed by Jody French but now I have a problem. My list of photos I want would put me in the poor house. I've stalled for long enough I need to put my order together. Take a look and see what you think.

    My Website

    I just read that one of the worst things that a website can do is white text on black background. They call it "cold and condescending" and doesn't encourage repeat viewers. Well guess what? My website is black background with white text. I love my website. It took me two years to figure...
