I agree . Hey Candy, is your Koi Pond ok after the storms? I tried to kid around with you on one of your questions about the Ask app, but I kept getting the OK pop up...

We survived, and my pond did as well. Thanks for checking on me. I appreciate it. Could you do me a favor? On that Ask app that I asked, a guy named Payton answered me and claims to be a mod. But when I looked at his profile, his own questions were deleted. I asked the mod who's on now, if this person was really a mod. It got deleted, then restored but she says its a mod. Thoughts??

Hmmm I really don't know what to think. Do people pretend to be Mods??

It's not that the horses themselves are all that special but the ponies live on assateague island and the vfd every year would go across and swim the herd over so they could have an auction of some. Combination fund raiser and herd thinner. Marguerite Henry, an author wrote a story called Misty of Chicoteague which became quite popular and started tourists coming to the pony swim. She went on to write several more books about Missy's foals and the chicoteague ponies became famous, so much so that most tourists who go there to buy one overpay a bunch.

I had a girl bring me a weanling she bought there. She was put together with baling wire and spit and the girl paid $1000 for her at that auction.
