    I would be disappointed but not surprised or angry. Television coverage of Equestrian is abysmal anyway.

    It makes financial sense to drop them. The cost/benefit is upside down to the host city...

    If you do find the magical secret, please share. Otherwise, the only answer is to have a dedicated wardrobe for the barn and throw it in the washer every week to keep it from standing up on its own...

    OP, I feel your pain. I have to preserve my 2 ac. of pasture, and the rain in MD has been ridiculous this year. My 50x120 sacrifice area, which is nicely sloped and usually stays quite dry is a...

    I'd go with Option A. Your circumstances have changed, you need to sell the horse, and that is that. If trainer and friend really wants the horse that badly, they can make you an offer for it. ...
  5. Can you take in a retiree for minimal board? ...

    Can you take in a retiree for minimal board? That's what I did and its worked out beautifully. I charge enough to cover her feed/hay/bedding, so I have a nice little companion horse who is not on...

    I was the kid who didn't exist for her parents. I over compensated by being too attentive to mine, thinking that made me a good parent. DD would probably have gotten much more out of her lessons...

    Happy to hear that, because I never got a call back from the shelter, and I don't seem to be able to post on the FB page either.

    I have a few low pile fleece tops that seem to do OK in the barn, but fleece gloves are a disaster, and I still prefer my old fashioned sweatshirts with a vest the most. Cotton shirt under the...

    Mine actually seem to prefer nets to the floor or rack, and I use all 3. I'll generally offer 1-2 flakes on the floor, and 3 in the net, as I like them to have hay 24/7. Both of them go straight...

    Stray Mare in Southern MD

    I saw this on facebook this morning. If anyone in Southern MD recognizes the mare, please contact the Tri-County animal shelter ant 301-932-1713.

    OP, I hope you do get Crazy Scammer (CS) out on the 8th! Good on you for being such a nice person. Going forward you can continue to be a nice person who just sets clear boundaries on your...

    I am really behind the times. When did SmartPak move its retail store from Plymouth to Natick? I was hoping to visit the store while I'm in Plymouth this weekend. :cry:

    That is an impressive bruise! Feel better soon.

    I still have a dent from a Rico kick in the same area. And am also thankful it happened in the muscular part of my thigh, but at the time, I could...

    Ummm - here's a thought. Perhaps the prosecutor did not get an indictment because the evidence supported the policeman's innocence. Have you even considered that possiblity. Policemen don't...

    Very green, cold backed horse trainer insisted on riding him first time he was off property in 2 years. I was very specific that the goal for that day was to get him on/off the trailer and lunging...

    I agree with this to a point. I really only ride 2 horses most of the time, but they are so different in build, way of going, and even in different saddles, and I'm finding that it really helps with...

    Actually, I don't think I'm a bad rider, I KNOW I'm a bad rider. What I lack in athletic skill, I try to compensate for by being as tactful and compassionate to my horse as possible. But I think...

    I have a little 14.2h IR mare at my place - she was only getting 1 cup of grain when she arrived, and less hay. I added 1/2 scoop of Accel multi vit/mineral supp to compensate, as 2c of feed a day...

    I am definitely the first in my family to show any signs of horse obsession. Unless you count my dad's love for betting on the ponies.

    DD has had a horse most of her life because I have them at...

    I have a 2000 Cotner. 2H BP. Straight load, steel frame, aluminum skin, fiberglass top, ramp. It has an extended front with extra wide escape doors. I took it in 3 years ago to have the frame...

    Rico will ignore hay to forage for anything green. Mare is IR, so she needs her intake controlled.

    They're turned out on grass in the mornings for about an hour then put in the dirt sacrifice...

    Thank you for this! It's awesome. I just wish you could print a copy of all the areas with a label inside with the size. :(

    I had one of those falls - whacked head, couldn't remember where I lived, but the conversation after the world stopped spinning went:

    "where's Holly?"
    "Holly's in her stall."
    "Oh, thanks for...
