The name of this blog comes from the book that we have good intentions about writing, about escapades of border collies and sheep....that are memorable enough to be called "one for the book". It will also contain memories and updates of dogs, sheep and people, past and present.

Anyone who knows me very well knows I am as nuts about Thoroughbred horse racing as I am about working border collies. Yesterday's Kentucky Derby, with 50-1 longshot Mine That Bird and Calvin Borel winning going away at a record distance was just thrilling beyond belief. It's a Disney movie in the making! With owners and trainer from New Mexico (called the Land of Enchantment for a reason!) the horse and rider team paired up to give us the most exciting two minutes in sports. The horse I had picked, Chocolate Candy, did not fare too badly, either, coming in fifth.
