Re: RC: RE: Re: [endurance] Difference in Arabians

Truman, that was right on time! I knew you couldn't let that pass!  You
know, it's all in your perspective. Was told a story once, probably in a
bar in Oceanside, Jacksonvile, of them memory
isn't what it used to be..... 

Anyway, it seems several Army types were sitting around a table
discussing an incident in the Korean conflict where an Army unit was on
the receiving end of a Calvary Charge (on horses) by a North Korean unit
and didn't fare too well.  Noticing a couple of grizzled old Marines at
the table next door, one asked "Master Sergeant, what would you have
done?"  The Top leaned back in his chair, took a pull off his beer and
said "Don't rightly know, Son....wasn't there...but whatever it was, we
would-a been ridin' them d#@$ horses when it was over! 'Course the Air
Force was watching from a distance! :)

Well, it's ALMOST horse related....Ridecamp's been kinda slow, lately
