Re: Neil Young sings EMR@FarmAid 2013&IYCRMM-3-2014

Re: your favourite Lightfoot song today... and ONLY TODAY

Today it would be "All the Lovely Ladies"

Re: Horse names - Lightfoot inspired

How about:

"Morning Rain" -bound to be an early leader

"Something Very Special"
"Paper and Tin" - a horse that would run races that only she could win
"Love go round"

OK, that's enough.
