Howdy! I live about 40 miles west of Indianapolis, IN. My farm is called Prairie Pines Foundation Quarterhorses. I live kind of where the prairie type of terrain starts and spreads west toward Illinois. It is very flat and windy so we grow a lot of pine tree windbreaks; thus the name of my place. I come from a long line of farming families ( my mom's family in America prior to the Revolutionary  War, and in Indiana since 1800.

I grew up with horses and ponies, got away from that lifestyle while in college, but came back to it in my mid-thirties. My horses have Rey Jay, Blondies Dude, Skipper W, and Tardy Two bloodlines. I have a blue heeler dog ( like the herding dogs in Brokeback Mountain), a mutt/ hounddog, goats and barn cats.

I have a 1904 frame farmhouse that I am remodeling a little bit and live close to some very small towns that resemble Signal, WY in many ways! I am same -sex oriented, but do not feel like a part of the gay community at large. I choose to be out in the country and love it among rural people. I have always been attracted to masculine guys and have a "significant other " who lives about an hour away from me. I am not overly conservative but am a follower of Jesus Christ. My religious beliefs are most like those of the Mennonites, Church of the Brethren, Quakers and Old German Baptist Brethren. My Dad's family were Mennonite.

I love anything to do with the American West, cowboys, rodeos, et.al. I used to work at rodeos in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas, and volunteered for the WRCA (Working Ranch Cowboys Association). I first came across the story of "Brokeback Mountain" while reading the collection of short stories in Close Range, Wyoming Stories by A.Proulx , about five years before they started making the movie. I related to "Brokeback Mountain" in so many ways and hope to discuss those in some of Bettermosts' forums. I don't have a computer at home, but do at my office in Indianapolis.

Hope to get to "talk" to some of you in the future! Also, the song  "Wait until Dark" from Kelly Willis' album, "Easy" would be a good one for your radio station. Thanks.

Thanks, everybody, for your welcome greetings.

Kelda, I've always been interested in geneology and know that I have some Scottish ancestry ( the Boyles of Kelburne , I believe ). My aunt and uncle who lived in Laporte, Indiana, their "sister city" was Grangemouth, Scotland. My uncle Bob would fish in Canada each year, but also went many times for fishing trips to the Scottish Highlands, and toured throughout Great Britain. Unfortunately, I have never been to Europe!

Well , It is around six-o-clock p.m. here and I have to go feed horses and goats and clean out stalls and put horses into the barn for the night.

Nice to know you, Hersch!  Sounds like you have a sweet life out there.  I live in New York City now, but I went to college at Butler in Indianapolis and have a brother who lives in Laporte.  Make yourself at home here, Friend.  8)
