Favorite Horse Ever


Look at the expression in his eyes. This is what a gentle giant looks like. (He is 16.2 hands tall.)
When I go to the field, Prince knows who I am and he walks over to check all my pockets. He knows I have raspberry alfalfa treats for him.

You don't need a shrink for real therapy; you only need a good horse!

Boy Scout Chili Extravaganza!


The Boy Scout Troop in Dover, Arkansas, has an interesting fundraiser every year. They host a chili dinner, titled "Chili Extravaganza," where they serve an entire line of chili made from different animals. This year, there was chili made from beaver, deer, elk, raccoon, buffalo, bear, squirrel, antelope, and beef.
They also served cake and lemonade, which made for quite a tasty and economical meal for $5, considering you could eat as much as you want.
I asked someone why they didn't serve Girl Scout cookies for dessert, and I was told that the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts "are big rivals here. They don't get along."
(???)
