  1. Thank you both for your efforts. I got the information from the woman who bred my BlackJack Bay years ago, and at that time, I found the site above. There was no picture attached for Jacinto back then, but, lo and behold, there is one now! So, one horse down. As you say, The Spoils did not have a distinguished career, which is probably why he went on to sire the sport horse who was my Black's father (with the barn name High Pockets). Pockets was crossed with a Spanish mustang from one of the BLM round-ups to produce my heart horse. He certainly was not built for speed, and I don't know why I never thought to ask the woman why she crossed those two breeds together in the first place. I do know she used his half-brother of the same type of cross (same thoroughbred sire with a different mustang dam) for search and rescue. Either way, I loved my guy; he was a tremendous character. But he died too young.
  2. Belgian steak or lobster?
  3. sweepstakes
  4. I wore contact lenses for most of my adult life but for the past few years have been stuck in glasses since both my corneas ulcerated at one point. I will say that I hate riding in glasses, especially in the rain. A pair of sunglasses that fits over your glasses can help (available at Walgreens, etc.). I believe there are also sports bands that attach to glasses to help keep them on. These days, I ride in a helmet, so I spent a little more and got a nice quality helmet with a flip-down plastic face shield. If I were to fall, the glasses would have protection too. I flip it down when I am riding hard.
  5. Howdy, Majik! Love the horse in your avatar pic. M.
  6. I am not sure if you are able to find photos for me or not. These were not my horses, but rather the thoroughbred grand-sire and great grand-sire of my old mustang-thoroughbred cross, BlackJack Bay. JACINTO (USA) br.

  7. You have a quilt for every occasion, even video gaming!
  8. What a lovely and personal gift!
  9. I always like a nice bay. Congrats.
  10. I think it's currently on Netflix as well. I saw it a couple of months ago, and it was very intense and involving. The movie doesn't sugarcoat or apologize for the mistakes the young men make; it just shows their journey. No one has to sell me on the toughness or the practicality of the mustang. I still miss mine every day.
  11. Well. I'd be on board with number 8.
  12. PC draft horse or miniature horse?
  13. Black, I guess. Both my horses have been black. I've had two tri-colored collies (mostly black). But my cats are always gray neutered males.
