Nice to meet you.  My name is Mer Belle.  That means Beautiful Sea in French.  You can just call me Belle because I know I'm beautiful.  My mom also says I'm a "drama queen".  Not sure what that means, but it's better than "Basketcase Barbie".

I'm a 10 year old OTTB.  That means I raced.  And I was FAST!  I did pretty good on the track, and loved it, but I was retired from racing a few years ago.  My last mom started me over fences, but said I wouldn't ever make a "hunter", so she gave me my new mom.  My new mom just wanted a resale project, but heh, I've got news for her!  We don't always get along, and she's kind of a spazz sometimes, but she's stuck with me now.  At least for a while.

I have a much older brother.  His name is Roo.  He's old.  And boring.  He doesn't get along with my spazz of a mom all the time either, but she's had him forever.  I don't think he's going anywhere any time soon. 

Since I've been with my mom, she's moved me from KY to GA to TX.  I hear her grumbling sometimes about "the Army" and wishing they would send us somewhere she likes.  I agree.  This place sucks.  When we first got here, I couldn't believe that I had been yanked out of my lovely pasture just to be dumped in a stall/paddock.  I was a little mean to mom.  I hope she'll make it up to me sooner or later.  I'm willing to try not to hurt her too badly before she does.  ;)

I'll try to post my adventures when I have them.  Thanks for reading!
