More common in certain breeds such than others, it can occur to any horse that carries the right gene, male or female.
I've never seen one in person either. I think that "any horse that carries the right gene" statement is bullshit. What is the likelihood of that gene traveling to distant breeds and continents?

You know Malcolm and Angus Young of AC/DC fame, right?

Well, they have an older brother, George, who just died (on Oct 22nd). This guy had a songwriting/producing partnership with Harry Vanda (Vanda & Young produced several of AC/DC's albums).

Well, I told ya that to tell this:

Today I learned Malcolm's and Angus' older brother George (along w/Harry Vanda) wrote this song:



I was sorta stunned. George was also in a band called The Easybeats. They wrote and recorded Friday On My Mind, which has been recorded by, well, damn near everybody.

Good catch sir

i did not know that

you couldn't have knocked me over any further than if you'd told me that a pre-fame Bruce Springsteen spent time in a philly diner with newly-famous Billy Joel... and a pre-fame Barry Manilow.

(but it did happen. this account of the tale leaves out important DJ Ed Sciaky, who later recalled that Manilow predicted he'd be the most famous of the bunch. He was arguably wrong, but not far wrong.)

Today I learned that people in prison can still do good things for society.
