When I had horses I steered away from Arabians because they are high-strung. They look good and show well but for utility I wouldn't risk it.

Besides, I've been through Egypt and Jordan and I've been to Lebanon and you don't see many horses. Donkeys are still everywhere (workhorses) but the most prevalent working animal on the peninsula and northern Africa is the camel. No offense intended but when I picture Arabs in the desert it's aboard a camel.

In keeping with the tradition of offering up lemons during periods of un-activity, I submit the following:
>Christians are in fact more likely to tip badly than diners with no religious affiliation, according to a study on the subject by Michael Lynn of Cornell University. While Christians gave an average of 17.3 percent for good service, a significant minority -- 13 percent -- left less than 15 percent gratuity for good service, which is double the percentage of unaffiliated diners who tip in that range and six times the percentage of Jewish diners who do the same.<

Jews are better tippers than Christians and unaffiliated diners? Who’d a thunk it? LOL
You'd have to choke pretty bad for me to leave less than 20%. I'm talking about Garo Yepremian in the '73 Superbowl bad.

When you have a .0635% sales tax, you simply triple it and it gets you close. If she has great cleavage, add 1%.

Yes, I saw it and I wouldn't own a paint horse either, even though I had the chance to buy-in at the top of a champion blood line. When you work cows, you need horses that have an instinct for the work and who don't mind getting their hooves dirty (excuse the mixed metaphor). Most of all, you need a horse with calm focus...a cutting horse is a beautiful thing to watch.



The cattleman is just holding on, since the horse knows exactly what it's doing. For that kind of training and experience you'll pay more than I did for my first house.

Try voting for yourself. It don't let you. At any rate, you judged me. You found it funny because Diners are prone to hire chubbies. You found it racy because of the junk in the trunk rebuttal and you found it brilliant because I am. Now roll over and go back to sleep. ;>)

The reason is cause horses got a small footprint, cant handle sand too good, they sink in and makes it hard for them to move. The word is camel urine.

>Jerusalem - Israel's Shin Bet domestic security service and army announced on Thursday the arrest of about 20 members of Hamas' armed wing in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

The Shin Bet and army arrested "approximately 20 terrorists affiliated with the Hamas who were planning a kidnapping attack in order to bargain for the release of prisoners", a joint statement read.<

Go Shin Bet. Looks like a little R & R in one of Israel's fine prisons.
