Hay! My peeps are here on the sailing site too! very cool. Ok, calming down... down, Ok. whew.

D Wogaman - great idear for a Horse group. Coincidentally I just wrote my famous 'how to make a million bucks in the horse business' story to a poor gal that didn't know horses have the fertilizer that makes it grow on trees. Now I can't figure out where I wrote it. I'll get back to you on this.

Mr. Ocnvyaggerr - I think Fred Schwiers (bottom) is having trouble with the photo upload tool also - maybe give him a jingle.

Let's see - I guess it all started when I figured out my dad was a jockey, my mom was drinker and my grandparents drank and raced quarter horses in Washington and I was born in Texas. It was in the blood! My sister was (is) the talent and I bucked a million bales of hay and straw and shoveled 16 tons of horse poop and finally got recognized for my 'talents'.

A wise man told me once "Never, never,never own horses". I should have listened. His point was there are 'always' horses around to ride and people love to have them ridden and exercised for them, especially by someone who will keep 'em safe and make 'em think a bit. I've ridden hundreds of horses in this way and have become a fairly competent drunk from my experiences.

It works the other way too. Let anybody that has a pulse and is willing to jump on your horse get on for a few laps around the arena. heck, put an ad in the paper! "Free horse to ride" (no one will come). After a dozen or so riders throughout the year your horse will appreciate the heck out of YOU!

Eventually there's one nag that has the hardest luck story you ever heard and you have to 'save' her. With the idea you will turn around and sell her to a good home right away. Then another, and another and another, then one day you wake up one day and there's 11 horses in your pasture - what?

Today I do not own any horses. It was a lot of work but I really set out to send them all off to the good homes I promised them years ago. Hardest to go was one of my first, Sierra. he's a mutt quarter horse that shared many, many miles of trails and memories with me. Stepping into his stirrup was like putting on an old glove - sniff. He's retired and happy now.

Great to make all your acquaintances! Hope to see this group grow.

I hrave a Morgan mare - we constntly joke that we'd be wealthy people if we had different hobbies! Sailing and horses are tough on the budget, but worth it!

Where is your farm?

Attached is the mare we sold just before going cruising. She is a thoroughbred paint cross. I tried to upload a photo that was taken three weeks after her first foal was born.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
