Orcutt veterinarian, Dr. Brenda Forsythe, of Orcutt Veterinary Hospital, and her Andalusian Vinny, will be awarded several national championships by the USEF, which is the governing body for all equestrian sports in the nation, including USA participation in the Olympic games.

Forsythe and her husband will travel to Florida this month to attend the USEF Awards Gala, where she will be presented with the USEF National Champion Horse of the Year Awards in Andalusian Amateur English Pleasure and in Andalusian Specialty Horse (a division that includes dressage), along with the USEF Reserve National Champion Horse of the Year Award in Andalusian English Pleasure Open Division. Additionally, Vinny is ranked second to be the USEF Andalusian Grand Champion, making her USEF's reserve top-ranked Andalusian in the country.

Forsythe has been raising, training, and showing horses throughout her life, competing in the sports of show jumping, endurance, competitive trail, and dressage. She raised Vinny from one month of age, starting her under saddle at age two and training her for dressage. At the age of five, Vinny and Forsythe earned their first United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) National Championship in Andalusian Junior Horse Western Pleasure, along with a Reserve National Championship in Andalusian Junior Horse English Pleasure, along with many other state and regional championships.

DEAR ABBY: I am an 83-year-old mother of four. I have been living with my second husband now for 21 years. Nineteen years ago, my husband loaned one of my daughters and her husband a large sum of money so they could buy a house and pay off bills and judgments. All the necessary paperwork for the loan was signed at the time of the closing with a lawyer present, and it was agreed they would pay us back a certain amount every month.

DEAR ABBY: My husband barely speaks to me. We both work full time and are facing the empty nest very soon. At home, I have to initiate even the smallest of small talk. He'll never say "Good morning" or ask "How was your day?" Although I work hard to keep the house the way he likes it, he speaks up only to criticize the few times I don't meet his standards. There's never a word of acknowledgment when I have accomplished other elements of housekeeping.
