Wow--sounds like it could be the answer to a great 4H Quiz Bowl question! I didn't realize my computer's sound was off before clicking "play," but I got so caught up in his priceless expressions I never turned it on for my first viewing! Thanks for sharing that clip.

  • Yes, this site has advertising
    Horses aren't cheap to keep, even in your backyard. So, I sell ads on this site. I don't know these people, so don't buy anything based on my recommendation. However, I do try to be selective in the advertising I accept, and I try to keep it entertaining. Thanks for coming by.
