    Urban cowboys

    https://www.chonday.com/25771/cowbaoycop5/ I watched this expecting the worst. But what owning horses has done for those young men is truly great, despite it not being the most ideal place to keep them. Worth a share I thought.

    You know when you've finally had enough with the last dregs of winter when you're battling with a muddy rug blowing around in the wind, attempting to put it on a horse that won't stand still. And you are overheard by 2 passing liveries to shout 'oh you stupid RUG!!! just ******* off and DIE'...
