    Nasty Habit...

    I've had my horse (Leah) for about five years, and we've recently moved farms because my Grandad didn't really get on with the owner of the last one. I really love the new farm, but I've noticed when I tie Leah to the fence, she's started eating the wood.  I've tried a few...

    The Biker Gang and the Runaway

    “Huh-boy,” I thought as I surveyed the scene, “this is not going to end well.”  Just 100 feet or so down the dirt driveway stood as many as twenty members of what was reputed to be one of the meanest, roughest and most bad-*** biker gangs around.  The front yard of the...
