    Jetsmom,
    You aren't getting jaded are you? http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    We have both been here long enough to know that this BB runs in cycles and it is just going through a bad one right now!

    Please tell me we weren't like that back at Fox Hollow!

    As a newbie, and a suck-up (redundancy is my middle name... and my last), let me just say that you damn well better warn me next time you're planning to do this, so I can be prepared with the Depends! Laughed so hard I nearly squirted like one of my ever-in-season mares! (Hope this latter reference doesn't offend...)

    A warning would be great. I just spewed coffee all over my desk!! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif

    The sad thing is, I've read a lot of these on here lately. Must be the full moon. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif

    Jetsmom.....I think the problem was the saddle cause everything else you did was right on! Had to have been the saddle. Perhaps you need to have it reflocked or get a new one altogether. OR, it could have been the shoe job you had done prior to the show...you remember, where you put 00 on size 2 feet and forgot to add the trailers? I'm sure it was the saddle or lack of trailers!!

    It's just a spoof on the many threads here that are posted under alters. Nothing really to get, just funny. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    There is NOTHING wrong with your 3 year old. Just switch disciplines to dressage, train him in the rollkur method and try your forst GP test this weekend!

    Well, when you get that new horse we'll all be more than happy to help you pick out a show name. And a barn name.

    Sounds to me like the judge was just mad at you.
    I would dye the horse chestnut next time you show under that judge. I'm sure your trainer can show you how.

    Lordy--that must have been PAINFUL to type. I hope it was worth it... http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    (ed. note--I think to be technically correct, you should NOT confess in the title that your post is long. After all, you're entitled. Entitlement includes verbosity. Even mangled, illegible verbosity.

    Just a suggestion...)

    Oh and dear lord, don't forget to put the panty hose on your head. Make sure they are the proper color of nude to match your horse!

    You need to commit a public lewd act whilst riding DEEP.
    Seriously...do I have to be the only one who isn't afraid to type that out loud?????
