Friday Notes and News

For some reason, the great response we got to the EN Census reminds me of my favorite Eventing Nation related comment ever, which was posted on a COTH thread.  LisaB said something to the effect of “I have known John for years now, but I never knew he had a sense of humor.
…which reminds me of the great Men In Black quote “No ma’m, we at the FBI do not have a sense of humor we’re aware of
…which reminds me of pretty much every first date I have ever been on
…which reminds me that I want to see The Crazies
…which reminds me to get to the news and notes.

Bruce Davidson and Laine Ashker post new blog entries.  When I get the time (ha), I need to write a post about the explosion of new blogs/websites in eventing over the past year.  The explosion is incredibly exciting and a perfect compliment for our aggregation format here at EN.

Good News Friday: Amigo, an endurance horse who was impaled by a tree, is scheduled to go home.  *Graphic picture warning*

The USDA canceled its national animal identification system because of angry horse people.

Galway Downs, along with everything else on the planet, is like the movie Avatar because its in 3-D.  Joking aside, that press release is actually interesting, making it one of the better pre-event press releases I have ever seen.
Megan Lewis is riding from China to London.

Check out photos of Hawley Bennett carrying the Olympic torch.

Horseless horse show is a ‘huge success.’  Which is surprising, because when you take horses away from a horse show, all you have is 300 crazy people standing around in a muddy field, one super-stressed event organizer driving a golf cart in circles, and 100 dogs that should be on leashes.  Go EvEnTiNg with horses.
