    The gal who came looking for her flaming breakfast appeared perfectly lucid, almost perky. She did not appear to have a coffee deficiency. Just rock stupid.

    Everyone else is now looking for the...
  2. No, you cannot use paperplates in the toaster oven.

    :mad:

    Really, one of our newer hires with more legs than brains put her breakfast in the toaster oven on a paper plate, on a piece of cardboard. Turned it on to 400 and left. :eek:

    Surprise,...

    The other half of the chow cross is apparently Lab, and she apparently has a Lab disposition. (fingers crossed) The chow our neighbor had came through our fence one day and chased our cat a couple...

    You just reminded me of an incident, years & years ago. The neighbors behind us in Suburbia had a Big Black Dog. Not a nice dog. He came over the fence and was in our yard in the morning. My mom...

    Check with your insurance company, they may not be thrilled about his breeding.

    I'm not a fan, but my experience is the neighbor's pit going after another dog. Also the ones straining on a leash...

    Ditto everyone else - CALL ANIMAL CONTROL. It's their job to track this stuff. You have little dogs. Jacks can kill small animals pretty easily.

    We had a JRT for 13 years, and she was always on...

    I can't remember the name of the vet I liked (Harrison maybe), but I was not at all impressed with Haymarket.

    Is the saddlebred barn still across the road? I remember stopping there the year we went to the Jr League show as a kid.

    Most in my commissioning class at OCS were engineers. Most had been paid in college so they couldn't just quit and go home. I actually felt sorry for my drill instructor several times.:lol:

    Wow.

    You must be one of those tourists I loathe on the DC Metro, the one who writes some letter to the editor because the locals here are rude. The one who thinks I should slow down and enjoy...

    None of this addresses my last point - what are the actual numbers for fatal accidents at .08 vs .09 vs .10 vs .20? Not the number of crashes in a simulator, where participants are fed alcohol.

    I...

    I think your part leaser is a little surprised you actually got the other gal to ride your horse, a little put off and a bit nervous.

    She did mention before that she'd like to see the horse ridden...

    This is what I've grown up with. My BO routinely breaks his yearlings to long lines and briefly hooks them. He has gotten into DHH the last 5 years and they can be TOUGH if not started early. Much...

    Will I drive sh!tfaced - no.

    I would love to see though, a study done of how many accidents are caused by drivers blowing .08,...

    Based on the criteria here, I should have never bought a horse.

    At the time I'd had a relatively small amount of formal lessons, but had been riding on off for years.

    I had no boarding barn...

    Most times there isn't a perfect horse.

    If you fall madly in love with something, take 3 steps back. Being madly in love won't overcome holes in training or soundness.

    My reaction when I saw...

    My first thought was that those shafts would be too short! I drove short coupled, 15.2 mare with 88" shafts on a 2 wheel bike. My big mare (17.2) is also short coupled (i.e. 72" blanket) and she...

    If you like it, fix it.

    I need to get my saddle fixed right now. They don't make them anymore (blue ribbon cutback) it's at least 20 years old (I've had it for 15 years & got used). Since I...

    From your post, you still sound reasonably active. Maybe you shouldn't be.

    I understand the constant, nagging joint pain. It took me a couple years to convince the orthopods I saw that my ankle...

    I wouldn't worry about the mare or foal. My BO routinely drives his mares up until their last month with no problem. When my mare was bred the first time (when he owned her) she didn't bag up much,...
