I like that I am not the only one giving Rattlesnake Bridge a a look...he has been training and working out very well. If there is to be a longshot upset....who does everyone want to speculate it will be??? I am going to go with Mott's horse Raison d'Etat.

Big D.,
I am not saying there WILL be an upset but ANYTHING is possible...remember Lemons Forever? Mine That Bird? Giacomo? Shared Account? They all upset VERY good fields in ways that none of could have predicted. My question wasn't saying there would be an upset, only asking that IF there was one, who would be the most likely horse to do so?

upset Rattlesnake Bridge
killed a rattlesnake on my patio 4 days ago, talk about a scary feeling- dark, rattlesnake buzzing, can't see him but he sounds like he his 5 feet away but he was actually 30 feet away, it is one thing hearing and seeing where he is than hearing and not seeing him.

EWWWWWWWWWW!!!!


In eastern WA we used to run into rattlesnakes all the time growing up....we were a motorcycle family and we would see them as we were riding through the sagebrush! SOOOOOOO glad we don't have them here in Western WA! I caught that show on ANimal PLanet called Rattlesnake Republic and it is all about Rattlesnakes and hunting them and such....NO THANK YOU! One crazy bashturd even got into a bathtub with over 100 rattlesnakes....talk about INSANE (you couldn't pay me enough)!!!

:o



Boy am I glad I don't live near Big D., or Muleskinner...I am hard of hearing in one ear and would have a hard time hearing those nasty snakes anyway! Ugh! Seen enough of them as a kid....not looking forward to seeing anymore! I likeit here where we don't have those mean old snakes under every bush and nook & cranny! About the most we ever see are garter snakes. We're pretty ,ucky up here...no poisonous snakes or bugs really (unless you count the brown recluse spider once in awhile). Just had an email come out this morning here at work though about a HUGE cougar walking across the road not far from here. Other than cougars and bears we have relatively calm critters....there HAVE been a few honery Mountain Goats up in the national parks though!
