That's why everyone rides gray horses ;-)

> 6) Don't leave your horse in a trailer overnite.

A. Or behind a hot wire fence (easy to blast through during a nightly
runabout of loose horses), 
B. Or in a portable corral (insert horse head into panel and lift to
escape for nightly runabout),
C. Or tied to a picket line (possibly hang themselves trying to escape
for a nightly runabout), 
D. Or tied to a trailer (will attempt to drag trailer and truck with
them for a nightly runabout).

> 7)  Loose dogs bought to ridecamp need to be shot.

Or, at least have certain orifices plugged with a cork, and the vet
given free-rein to tranquilize any annoying dog at his or her discretion
with the vet bill directed to the dog owner.


> 8) It's still too cold to ride in Montana, Michigan, Minnesota, and Canada.

That's because there's only a three-strand barbed wired fence separating
these folks from the North Pole.

Actually, that's a half-truth.  It USED to be 2 cents, but the rising
cost of beet pulp, corn oil, GAGs, engineered horseshoes, and the Great
Saddle Hunt have reduced this amount of loose change considerably.

And Angie McGhee as our "RideCamp Leader of Morality and
Reminder-of-our-Need-for-Humility".  Her tweaked sense of humor doesn't
hurt either... hey Angie, how's those ribs feeling???

Well, that's my one cent involvement in this whole thing!
