Sorry to have been away for so long. Son stuff. Family stuff. Garden stuff. Stuff Stuff.
Did you know that the people who continue to mourn Barbaro's death are, um, INSANE?????
His fifth birthday was this week. Did you have a cake? Light a candle? Hmmmm? No? Shame on you.
OH!! Grand news!! We have news from heaven. Yep. It's on the website. Barbaro and his dear dead horsey friend have *bred* in heaven and have given birth to *twins*! No, really. I swear I'm not making this up. (OK, someone is, but it's not me.)
Go read for yourself. Equine Heaven
(By the way, do not try to tell these folks that they are delusional or writing really good fanfic. Noooo. They saw the pictures of Barbaro with the angelic orbs over his head as he walked to the starting gate on that fateful day. I've wanted to point out in the past that the angels weren't doing a super terrific job on that day, but just seems so mean.)
Edited to add 2:25 pm: Oh POOH! They changed the website sot hat the birth announcement is gone. But really, there was a birth announcement on there regarding the birth of Heavenly Filly and Heavenly Colt born this week from a dead horse fathered by a dead stallion, all in horsie heaven. I'll have to see if the way-back machine can be of any help.
