Obsessed, intense, exhaustive researcher. Don't let me commence, honey.
I've been studying Ancient Egypt on my own since early childhood, and find most periods of Egyptian history fascinating. I ain't interested in the foreign rulers' dynasties.
I've been riding hunter-jumper off and on for 37 years, and also voraciously read about horse breeds, various styles of riding, and the history of equestrianism. I have never owned a horse, but had many years of lessons, and rode horses and ponies of many breeds and dispositions. School horses, trail horses, rescued Jamaican TB ex-racehorses, and even some exotic and gaited critters have been my mounts.
I'm also merelygifted at soup dot io. I also live here: http://categorian dot com/blog/browse/u/Xtine66 & once had the same su username.
Pics are either links or will often become much embiggened, so click away.
I do give sources whenever I can, unless the source be otherwise craptastic.
Carve a hole in the rain for yer; courage, my sweet
