Update on the Morgan story

Regular blog reappeared - so back we go to We are in the process of transferring to a new web host so more downtime MAY happen - don't worry, it will be done soon!

Turns out it is not just cleanliness issues and many are significantly underweight, too.

Update on Beth Lynn Hoskins Story

Read the comments - they're pretty interesting too. Apparently Beth had a lot of time to play on Facebook when she should have been out in the barn taking care of her actual horses.

To which I just have to say:

demotivational posters

It actually brings up a good issue - who else do you know whose Internet addiction is interfering with their ability to care for their animals?  Most of us love our 'net but our animal care still comes first - others can't draw that line.

On and off again!

I sincerely apologize for the blog being on and off like a light switch at! We are taking steps to resolve the unreliability and it should be much better next week.

Last Chance Corral has alleged to me that there is some sort of federal investigation having to do with Twice Out East but has provided no actual proof of any such investigation. Obviously, I would edit or remove any blog entry if asked to do so in writing by any law enforcement agency, but if I let the Presidents of rescues tell me to take down posts, plenty of you might still be getting scammed by some of the faux rescues we have exposed in the past. So it's my policy to ignore such requests unless they come from an official source, and in three years of the blog, I've never had a single request of that type.

At any rate - Happy Friday if you're here looking for the Fugly Blog! I hope we'll be back up soon at our regular location, but in the meantime, tell me what YOU are most looking forward to (horse-related) this summer!

Oh the drama!

So, some silly little man has apparently pulled out a lot of stops to mess up my blog for a while, but as you all know by now - NOTHING stops the Fugly blog! So we're just back over here for a day or two until this is resolved or I switch web hosts. Bear with me, and I'm sorry about all the confusion!

Here's what I want to do today. Let's celebrate silly question day! If you have been thinking about trying a different show class or going to a certain kind of event for the first time, but you are afraid of looking silly and think you might have a silly question, post it here and get it answered with no shame! Whether you're wondering what kind of saddle you need for AQHA competition, whether a bit is legal for training level dressage, or what you'll need to know before going to your first team penning, let's post those questions here and help each other out!

Then, tomorrow, we'll track the silly little man down and eat his liver for lunch...kidding...really. ;)
