All About MeEdit

I am Tigerboy1966 and that's all you get althoughmy username does rather spoil things by giving away my age and sex. One point I'd like to make is that although I made my first edit way back in 2007, I only started editing seriously in early 2011, and I tend to stick to creating content in a single specialised area, so I'm not as experienced as the stats make me look. By the way the reason that my WP signature is bright orange and black (apart from the tiger thing) is that I'm very short-sighted. It helps me to pick out my contributions to discussions without having to have my nose pressed up against the screen. I love shiny things and will be grateful for any barnstars, badges, awards etc. Passed 100k edits with a sandbox edit at 13.08 today. 10 March 2015. Passed 200k with edit to Asanoyama Hideki 21.23 28 October 2018.

What I'm Doing HereEdit

I am writing articles on notable European thoroughbred racehorses. I also try to improve existing articles. European horses seemed to be poorly represented compared to their American counterparts.WP:AfD

The big, black aeroplane: STILL the best racehorse in the world
