All day today and yesterday I kept thinking that April 29 is some sort of important date in my life, but it took me a long time to realize what it is. April 29, 1992 was the day I got my first horse, Thunder. She was a really good horse. We had our occasional disagreements and I know my entire family wasn't overly fond of "the man hater" but I couldn't have asked for a better first horse. :-)
And yes, every horse I've owned (Thunder, Gwen, Shylah) has been fat!
