Hey Shel;

Where do you find the engine on wunna them horses?  You're starting to
sound like them mountain bike drivers, or sailboat lovers :-.  Those of us
up in the Capital City, prefer iron horses - the exhaust is much easier to
clean up.  You guys down there don't call it Cowtown for nothing.  BTW do
those LCHs (Little Calgary Horses) come with rack and pinion steering or is
it Armstrong?
