I don't know why but Zenyatta sounds familiar to me, not only bc of your fb posts either. Who is she? I mean, besides a horse mama.

I just had to read the worst paper for my history seminar. Wrote 2 pages of notes on it (little rip-a-day calender page sized pages but still).. Everything about the paper was terrible. I feel bad about how bad of a paper it was, like it is a late April fools day joke on me.. But the reality is, this girl never attends class, never contributes and the beginning few classes where she did attend she was blatantly on her phone for the 75 minutes. (like, on the table in front of her in plain view bc the tables are seminar style in a circle) I don't even....

Zenyatta is an amazing race horse who almost retired unbeaten. She is known for the way she would "dance" on the track and for having oodles of personality.

Hahaha, sorry for spamming you with FB posts.

Aaaand, Dinah's under the bed again.

EDIT: Got her. This rat seriously needs a bell on her tail.

That's too bad about the paper but that's the way it is in school. Your work will only be good as the effort you put into it. I hope that girl learns this, 'cause I can't imagine paying for college and not going. What a waste.

I saw pictures of Zenyatta and her colt on another forum. I really want to see what Black Caviar produces when she is eventually retired.

It sounds like Black Caviar is going to race another year from what I read, but I agree. I'm really excited to see her progeny as well. She's so magnificent. These last few years have been the years of the ladies in racing.

Yeah. I love the mares. Especially when they play against the boys and hold their own. Thoroughbreds are my favourite breed of horse. There is nothing better than a super fit Thoroughbred. They (well most of the time) have such wonderful expressions.

I heard too many things about horse racing to enjoy it. :/

I know nothing about horses at all. Not one bit.

Oly, did you work on your website at all? Who was Paddy?

Oh yeah, there are horrible things about the race industry but there are good things too. A lot of the shady stuff goes on in Quarter Horse races where there is next to no regulation. But in the larger and more well-known racing venues in the States, anyway, there is a big push to do away with things like race day medication of furosemide.

LBF, I agree. Thoroughbreds are amazing, intelligent, spirited creatures with so much heart.

I've had me pair in the spawn tank since Sunday, and it's Tuesday now. I figured they would've spawned yesterday, but I was in the hospital. The girl is on the other side of the tank, and the boy is still under the nest. -sigh-

In other news. I still feel like carp from yesterday. I can hold down cheese-itz if I nom them slowly and let them dissolve on my tongue. I can't drink anything too quickly or it'll make me vomit.

I've been watching this really cute Anime called Squid Girl with my boyfriend.

Oh, and I might be moving soon. Maybe.

I don't like race horses at all! This girl in my class who I dislike has race horses is always bragging about how much money she won at a race or spent buying another, she said she was at a Rae one time and a horse ripped its foot off and had to be killed right there so horrible!
