I'm still not quite sure how I feel about having stars clipped on C-rage's butt. It's something I've never done before. I came through the ranks of tidy, professional horse people and I appreciate all those things. So when someone I respect told me that clipping shapes on horses and wearing bright colors was "cute when you're 12, but dumb after that", I had to stop and think.

So I guess I don't have a lot of patience with the "only cool if you're 12" argument. I'm not a professional. I don't want to be one. My goal is to be a happy amateur, and I'll be damned if I'm going to skip over doing new things just because some other subset of lucky people got to do more things when they were kids than I did.
