    Go to the damn doctor! Stop being the ooh rah hero, and get medical attention and PT for your back. You will end up with permanent damage, it will come back to bite you as you age. Trust me. My...

    Pony riders or juniors, but when those fail, I go with my mt. bike. A tiny scooter is also a good choice.

    He seems very loose/long in the pasterns. He looks very immature, too. Paint? Looks like a cross to me, very light bodied. I'm more concerned with the wording in the ad that he isn't really taking...

    Perhaps they could add a piece of black elastic in the lump spot? Might look a bit funny to you, but quite functional otherwise. My custom La Mundials were measured around my funky lumpy left foot....

    You reiterate that you cannot come due to work, that you are sorry you'll miss seeing relatives, and hope to be able to come to the next family gathering. Then, let it go. And enjoy your a time...

    Hundred Foot Journey was a great book, and I want to see the movie, too. Tammy was awful. We are seeing Lucy Tuesday. The super duper theater here has cheap day on Tuesdays, so we see a ton of...

    Voice resting comfortably. Pad of paper/ iPhone at the ready! :winkgrin: I love to talk. This is as bad as giving up chocolate and coffee. That constitutes cruel and unusual punishment. Isn't...

    Doc said it is most likely reflux...which is new for me, started with horrible gastritis last November. My big worry is starting school at the end of August with this voice. That will not fly! I...

    My guy does this with new hay or new pasture. Does it go down with work or turnout? Give it a few days before you panic ( I always tell myself that... But gosh it's hard!). My boy gets a bit better...
  11. Chronic sore throat/loss of voice. Help me brainstorm...and stop freaking out!

    I lost my voice back in the second week of June, due to too much talking (teacher, last week, big events) and a bit of a cold/runny nose.....or so I thought. It just never got better, and here I sit...

    How fun they make that look! Very nice pair, I like how the mare takes his mistakes and keeps on going, and how your son stays calm and also keeps on going. Good instincts, good training, good...

    Lots of quality hay up here in the PNW, but getting it down to CA is going to be expensive! And your misery will drive up our prices....so we all lose. Hay crop is quite good, so hopefully the hay...

    I thought trollyness oozed from the OP but gave her the benefit of the doubt. Definitely sounds like a young person, not (one hopes!) a twenty something.

    Nice horse, very handy and good form. But, what I saw in the first round was a horse who is not always listening...there were some awkward distances that were both rider and horse error. A bit more...

    Slow and easy. Goneriding's advice is spot on. One trick for getting them to let you touch their legs/feet is to use a long handled toilet type brush. Worked well on the untouched FOUR year old...

    End capital punishment. Problem solved. Hard labor and life in a tiny concrete cell-- no visitation, no tv, nothing but a book, work, and exercise, basic food.

    Maybe they should have a vet...

    I can sympathize with the fire starter, because most people have never used a toaster oven, frankly. And she's not stupid, just ignorant. You can help ignorant people learn. Stupid? Nope. Glad...

    Cost of living is higher here, though- food, gas, land/housing, etc. that it makes up for those tax perks. And it rains a lot. And we have volcanoes and earthquakes!
