    My son is heading off to university in a month and going to live in residence.

    Any words of wisdom from those who have been on this journey? What sorts of things should I send with him?

    Try not to let him get under your skin. Picture him talking in a high squeaky mouse voice or in some superhero undies. Don't give him the satisfaction of getting your goat.

    Ditto F8.

    I saw the muscling under her neck as a sign she might not be the easiest ride, especially as a potential eq type horse.

    Although, must say, I love her colour.

    I feel for you. I have severe osteoarthritis in my feet. Two things I've found helpful are using Back On Track socks and sleeping with a BOT horse tendon wrap under my feet.

    Hang in there!

    Train the owner now that he needs to have his dog leashed and under control at all times. Just like puppy training, instill good basics in the guy.

    LOL! Thanks for the stories. I didn't think anyone could top smoky Juicy Fruit but the farter and moldy BO might just do it.

    My son was saying that, when you click on a website fare, they keep 'cookies'. The site updates with higher fares each time you search.

    I have a Barnsby Milton that was fantastic on my large pony. I'm about your size and she had a flat, short back. It is a 16.5 but open seat. Lovely hunter saddle. Don't have the pony anymore.

    Must be different in the States. I'm in Canada and the strongest Roundup I seem to be able to get here is $30 for a smallish container. Sure wish I could find it cheaper.
