Manure – An Interesting Fact

I have not confirmed this on Snopes or anywhere else. That said, enjoy! Thanks to my mom for sharing this one with me. Manure. In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything was transported by ship, including fertilizer. Because commercial fertilizer had not been invented large shipments of manure were common. It was shipped dry, because [...]

The Perfect Man is Waiting!

So maybe he is a stallion, not a man.  EVEN better, when he is bad it is ok to leave him out in the pasture.  The American Trakehner Association (ATA) just announced that bidding for the 2010 ATA Stallion Service Auction (SSA) will open next week on January 1, 2010. Over 40 of the countries [...]

Why the Big Red Horse and I are a Perfect Match

Last night as we headed out to dinner, the Big Red Horse was standing at the gate requesting to come in. There was lots of daylight left, but we could tell that he REALLY wanted to be in the barn. Since I was wearing heels, Bill was nice enough to take him into the barn. [...]

According to Think Baby Names, Favian is a rare first name for a man.  Again, this is another great parallel, because the Trakehner stallion, Favian *Ps* [...]
