    Of course pesticides and air pollution are not the only causes of premature deaths. But you are wrong about life expectancy in the US. It is behind other first world countries and is on track to drop again in2018 for the third year in a row. The following article references the CDC statistics. http://fortune.com/2018/02/09/us-life-expectancy-dropped-again/
  2. Just some Bonnie pics

    I've always admired Bonnie.
  3. Look what I did today.

    Good going, Poco!

    If you decide to lease it, I would get a lawyer with horse people experience to draw up the lease agreement. They know all the pitfalls.

    Pesticides are definitely impacting health. However, not many inner city children are exposed to spray booths and yet, they are contracting asthma in record numbers. I remember a few years back warning about the toxicity of RoundUp on this forum. Everyone pooh poohed my post. And now it's the prime suspect in the dramatic rise in lymphoma in the US. We've managed to lower life expectancy while the rest of the world has raised theirs.

    I live in farm country also. I meet plenty of farmers in the allergy/asthma clinic I go to. Interestingly, I didn't have asthma when I moved here. I drive a diesel tractor and I have to wear a respirator mask when I do. That's fun in 90 degree weather.

    I would say you have anecdotal evidence from a very small group. Here's what the experts say. http://thorax.bmj.com/content/thoraxjnl/66/1/4.full.pdf
  8. Or debate the definition of definition. Or you could move over to COTH. They'll take your lunch money.

    Diesel fumes are dangerous to health. Asthma has become epidemic in Europe since it is used so widely.

    Congratulations qhridin. I'm glad you had some good show results. You needed some good news.
  11. Naming a new horse :)

    Agree on the thoroughbred blood.
  12. No, not Adolph. That was before my time. But I was thinking of the Hungarian leader, anyway. That's the one Trump likes. Austria and Hungary have a shared history, you know.

    I submit Fawn, because of the spots. But her coloring might change.
  14. What is your horse's home like?

    I like that setup, especially the access to the pasture. My stalls are hot and dark because there are no windows, even though there's a nice breeze in the aisle. I may see about getting windows put in or at least, translucent panels put in the roof.

    My favorite part was Margarita laying down in the lineup! I wish you had a picture of that. My brother was in a lead line class when he was about three, and he decided to take his shoe off in the lineup. I think he won the class anyway.
  16. Austria? Isn't that where the Nazi-like leader unleashed an anti-semitic diatribe against George Soros? Trump admires him. And Putin asked him to set up a meeting with Trump. I wonder why?

    Just think how many more years you and the girls can show them! LOL

    The Great Googley Caper! LOL

    Good job, Queen! You may have started something. Margarita's just a yearling, right?

    Queen, don't forget to get a photo of the show halters being used. Heidi, how long did that operation take?
  21. Picked Up Puppy

    Very pretty, RRW. I hope it gives you much joy!
  22. We have our first joust this weekend

    I have a hard time visualizing why the trainer in the photo of Solo is holding onto the rider's leg. If the horse shies or takes off suddenly, won't that put the rider face down in the dirt?

    I'm mentally channeling blue!
  24. I need advice...

    Congratulations, Pink! Just be yourself, do your job and enjoy the paycheck! I hope you get an office and you can close the door.

    He's a smart boy. He'll figure it out. It's a shame somebody started him off badly.
