My Life Sucks Because I'm Fat and Ugly
 By Ponybox   •   15th May 2010   •   19,721 views   •   73 comments
Today I was checking my Facebook on my phone before getting into the car and heading back to the hotel and read a post from one of my buddies that read:

"My life sucks can't find a girl to date becuse I am fat and ugly so no girl wants to date some 1 like me"

I met this member here on Ponybox about a year ago and have talked with him a few times via email and have become friends from this.

On the way back to my hotel I couldn't stop thinking about what he posted and does he really think his life sucks because he's fat and can't get a date. I thought it was a good opportunity for everyone to sit back and see how good we have it just to be alive and healthy. I'll take Fat and Ugly any day, as long as I'm healthy.

I'm betting we can get 100 comments to this article on why his life doesn't suck. I'll get it started with this video post below:

Ask Polo - Article 1 This is the first article in my new series, ‘Ask Polo’. In this series, I will be addressing equine problems mentioned by players, and giving suggestions to assist in solving their problems in article format. Today’s problem was posed by Ponybox player ‘Bright Horizon’. . . .
 
 
Against All Odds - The Story of Bronze - Part 7 It was toward the end of 2006 that Bronze started graded jumping. I managed to convince him that he could in fact keep more than one hoof off the ground at any one time, and he began to jump his fences properly, rather than stepping over them. Unfortunately, with this improvement, a new problem arose. Bronze, you see – the giant, stallion-crested beast th . . .
 
Horses vs. Cars After finally starting driving lessons this week (Better late than never, right?), I feel that I must share the few minor differences I've noticed in driving a car as opposed to riding a horse. . . .
 
National Junior Championships – Part Two This was our first day competing, and our third day at the championships. Finola, of course, was still not starting to compete, since she came only for the jumping. As such, this was Bronze’s moment, and all attention was focused on him. On this day, Bronze would perform for the first time as a competitor in a national championship. He was feeling rather . . .
 
Top Twenty Reasons To Ride A Horse Even though an infinite amount of reasons exist to ride a horse, I reduced this down to the top twenty reasons to ride a horse, as opposed to a dinosaur, flying saucer, or tap dancing polar bear. #20 - A horse will almost never succumb to toilet humour. #19 - Unlike their riders, horses don’t tend to be stinky, unless farted on. #18 - If your horse does g . . .
 
Cross Country 101 - Part Two An arrowhead is a type of skinny built in a triangular shape, so that the horse must jump from the narrow point of the arrow over the wider end. Arrowheads can be particularly tricky jumps for riders, because the point of the arrow draws in the rider’s eye, and this is so narrow that it is nearly impossible to place for. While a rider’s attention is focused . . .
 
Boomerang Effect - The Story of Choc Chip During the month of November in the year 2004, a miracle like no other took place. Into a world where each horse seemed nothing but a number, an amazing creature was born. The place of her birth was a racing estate where the breeder, owner and trainer of all the horses were one and the same. He was a great man and he loved his horses dearly, but he passed . . .
 
The Impossible - The Story of Choc - Part 3 To me, putting Choc down was never an option. For a horse so full of life, and so eager and ready to take on her next challenge and fight to keep living, it would just be wrong to take away that chance. This, of course, left two options. The stable rest would have been far, far cheaper. It also would have been less risky to Choc, but what of the end result? . . .
 
Retraining a Racehorse - Moonfire (Week 6) On Saturday morning I dragged myself out of bed, sick as I was, to get ready for the little practice show I had planned to attend. To my absolute dismay, I found that my darling brother had used up all the hot water, so I was doomed to start my day with a rapid cold shower that left my teeth chattering so hard I was sure they would crack. I got ready as quic . . .
 
Moonfire - Fixing a Rearing Problem - Part 2 I did my best to avoid the instances that encouraged rearing – but if you look above, you’ll see that it’s quite a list, and that there are many aspects that you just CAN’T avoid when riding a competitive horse. The main thing I did with him, is kept all my sessions short, but effective. I found that if I rode him for more than 45 minutes, he would just comp . . .
