Coming Soon....

My Hanoverian post...

Just trying to edit it down to 12,000 words or less :)

In the mean time....

Can I just say....

That a girl!!!!!

Rachel Alexandra ran against the big boys today....

And won. Handily.

Now THAT is mare power!!

Hope you all had a great weekend.


  1. That was an amazing race! I am glad the girl won, but I was secretly wishing Mine That Bird would take her, just for the chance of a Triple Crown winner!
    Anyways, I am still happy that a girl could beat the boys! She is an awesome horse and I just love her unusual face markings!

  2. Totally off your subject cause I just read your book review blog a few posts back...thanks, I'll get them from the library--I have to b/c I read 2-3 books a week and can't afford my reading addiction any other way! Anyway, you MUST read "The Hour I First Believed" by Wally Lamb. Also, if you've never read any of his books they are incredibly thought provoking and powerful, you will most likely really like him!

  3. Mare power. It's the best kinda power there is...

    I, too, hope I get to see another Triple Crown Winner.

  4. Yeah - I was pretty happy with the race and hope they stick her in the Belmont and don't wuss out.

    I think with the right technique and better footing - she will stand up to the distance.

    Weren't you also happy with Mine That Bird?! I was happy he showed the world he wasn't a fluke - cheaper horses can be better than expensive ones - there is still hope for the little guys in racing.
