  1. How ironic for you to have read one of my posts and then for me to read this post of yours . . . . skewbald – word of the day _ brings back so many memories of my days of riding horses (they were few but VERY memorable). We had an Australian skewbald named Peanuts. Do you know that so many people have no idea of the affiliation of that word. Thank You.
