Worlds Tallest Horse

I just got an email tonight about the worlds tallest horse named Tina. A really pretty horse and it looks like she is nice to handle. Good thing!!!

One of the radio shows I enjoy listening to recently went to one hour long instead of half an hour. Its at It's called the AFA report and its really good.

A friend of mine got me a book for Christmas called The American Thoroughbred, by Edwin Anthony. It's about the pedigrees of thoroughbreds of this country and it is really a good book. He has a couple of chapters of tutorials that teach you how to read a pedigree and a breeding and racing tutorial that helps your learn the language so you can understand the rest of the book. So far it is really good. I will talk more about it as I get through the book.

Hi everyone. I know I didn't say anything in the other posts I don't think, but I just got done working 60 hours a week for a month at Amazon. We are now back to our regular work schedule. From what I understand, last year the 60 hour work week started in late October, so sales were really down here, but in the paper I read that Amazon as a whole actually did better than other years. Friday and Saturday it was really dead at work, and I hope things pick up next week!

In horse racing, Visionaire is getting a winter vacation, and I think Mouse Soup is too, because I have not gotten any workouts from her for over a month. Nicanor, Barbaro's little brother, had a 3 furlong workout today that he did in 36 seconds, which is really, really good. It sounds like he is close to a race. His trainer said he will probably make his first start either in January or February. Since he is starting his career as a 3 year old and not a 2 year old, I don't know if he will be ready for the Triple Crown races or not, but you never know. Curlin didn't race at 2 and he won the Preakness.

I promise, now that I have my days off back, I will write more!
