Cloudy's Cafe



Come in, be welcome, be comfortable, be yourself

Welcome to Cloudy's Cafe, a place to have a cup of coffee or a good
darjeeling and the finest in conversation and camaraderie.

The proprietor asks that you follow a few simple guidelines:

this is a real conversation zone, not a role-play zone



[i]* no flaming; if you disagree with a viewpoint expressed by any patron, please do so in a civil manner
* any topic is fair game, but keep posts to the standards that Ziroc has set for the entire forum, please (ie: foul language is not appropriate and things should be suitable for all audiences)
-a side note from Cloudy: I see this as a place for those short
conversations about a new baby or the latest soccer fiasco, not for things that are big enough to warrant their own threads, by all means give those things the space they need and post separately!
* Please, no one word or smiley posts (Ziroc has declared them 'real spam' and the proprietor doesn't want the reputuation of "good spam" to suffer!)
* do feel free to be serious or silly and enjoy the company of others while you are here. By all means POST if you have something to say, even to start another topic , we can handle multiple chats, we're a CAFE!!! But be courteous and don't disrupt a conversation just to disrupt it.[i]

Come on in! The bar is stocked with coffees, teas, juices and waters from around the world. And purple napkins, of course!

The lighting is low, the golden oak counters and tables glow with inviting warmth. Near the window, the lighting is brighter, as comfy, plush leather armchairs wait for those who'd like to read a book while relaxing to music or just lazily watch the world go by.

Cloudy,
your hostess [img]graemlins/ladyhearts.gif[/img]

Ooops, my last post in the cafe thread to LB was so long that a new one got started while I was typing!

Here's my post again, so LB can see it!

LB, I never had the pleasure of owning my own horse, but I was lucky enough to find an old woman who couldn't ride any more - she had 3 horses that needed exercising, so I used to go out with my dad (who used to be a jockey) and usually a friend to ride them.

I used to ride a pony called Michelle, a palomino New Forest pony, my dad used to ride Amber, a red-bay New Forest, and the friend would ride Bluey, a grey cob, really big and hairy and always daydreaming!

Michelle was very young, I started riding her straight after she had been broken in - I loved her to bits, but she was really nervous and flighty. She then got tetanus (old woman didn't realise she ought to have been vaccinated, duh), which I spotted in the early stages. Although the vet had never seen it in a horse before, he fortunately took my word for it because I was adamant and so he treated her anyway, so she recovered, but unfortunately the damage to her brain left her quite insane and vicious.

After her illness, she actually killed 2 goats and a cat in the time I knew her, by kicking them to death. She couldn't bear to be touched around her tail or hindquarters, she really did go nuts. The accident happened when she was spooked by a pheasant and reared - I fell off onto a grass bank at the side of the bridlepath and slipped under her back legs, which was disaster. Alas she didn't run off, but stood there and kicked me black and blue for a good 10 minutes with my dad trying to pull her off me.

I couldn't walk for a week, I had been kicked in the knee, shoulder and head (the kicking had dislodged my hard hat, fortunately she only got me in the head once), and I still have joint problems, and occassional pain where I was kicked in the head, 16 years later as a result. Fortunately because we only ever rode on soft tracks, and because of her kicking tendencies, she wasn't shod - otherwise I would probably be dead.

The old woman gave all 3 horses to a friend who was very experienced. I understand that Michelle was going to be rehabilitated, which is good, I'm sure a lot of people would have just had her shot

Does that count as double-posting?
