    I forgot this one...I got picked up in a Walmart (yes. That should have been the first warning sign. I think that may have been the last time I stepped foot in a walmart). I agreed to meet the guy...

    I absolutely would NOT get another dog.

    I have a very dog friendly dog. She has lived with other dogs in the past (roommate's dogs, fosters) and has always been fine, but when it gets down to it,...

    I've painted a lot of walls over the last 10 years, and the Behr Premium (paint + primer) is my absolute favorite. Goes on really well and covers really well, and I've used some pretty wild colors...

    I should clarify. Usually the people I have known who were always seeking reasons their horses' "bad behavior" had horses that were fine. They looked fine to people on the ground, went fine under...

    As a BM, I definitely ran into my fair share of people who seemed to CONSTANTLY have a saddle issue. And I would sit there and look at their saddle, scratch my head, and think "you're a nut." Most of...

    Ingrid Klimke is a master at the quick pat. Watch some of her tests (maybe her London test?) and you can see it. I dream of being that good. I try, but I usually fumble coming back. ;) But I will not...

    Recent exchange from OKC:
    Message from fairly attractive guy that profile read decently, although a little hectic. But he's an artist, so I forgive the slight chaotic vibe I got from it. It was a...

    Meeting the Male Version of myself would probably not end well. I'm a lunatic. ;)

    But meeting someone who fits well with me, then tames to lunacy (and maybe I fix their shortcomings), that's ideal.

    For me, personally, I would not be willing to carrying on a relationship with someone who wanted to abstain. That's fine, if that is what you want, but the physical part is very important to me. And,...

    Drugs. Do it. You can't school her the way you would normally school a balky horse. She needs to be kept safe and so do you. Don't be a hero. DRUGS.

    I have a horse who tends to bounce around and act afool an awful lot. I use boots (or occasionally polos) every ride, more for his goofy moments than anything else (he does brush a little behind).

    You are adopting a 4 month old puppy. Unless she has already been permanently scarred by mishandling, there should be ZERO reason she can't be brought up to be social and safe around a variety of...

    Why not ride him in a regular eggbutt, D-ring, or full cheek? I have some similar bits (not as fancy, just stainless steel), and they are fine, but I do find that the rings don't always slide like...

    Tip for shopping Modcloth, especially for an event: pick a couple of dresses you like, have them shipped, then try them on (with proper undergarments on and not in a grumpy, crazy girl mood- I...

    I don't know. I think the pay sites have just as many issues. My sister used Match on and off for a long time and had some doozies. Like the guy she went out with a fair amount, actually had...

    Downward if I have the keeper. Upward if I lost it.

    Nasty tack is what saddle soap is for.

    That's what my next question was going to be. Can you give them some little tasks to do to "help"? Are they the kind of tasks that you can do with half your mind on them so you can chat with them?

    I'll have a vehicle (I'll have a truck and trailer). But I would like to limit my driving as much as possible. That's why the idea of keeping it at the end of a Metra line appeals to me. It wouldn't...

    I'm not a huge fan of kids but that's not really that bad of an age range. That's the age range where you can act silly with them and they LOVE it. Engage them in some games or something? Depending...

    I've not had any of the real horrible encounters on OKC, or anywhere, really. Most of the guys I'm not into, I ignore. I did have to gently tell one guy last weekend to shove off when he kept...

    Oh, lord. I'm always terrified I won't recognize the guy I'm meeting. I tend to save a picture to my phone now so I have easy, quick access right before I get out of the car!

    This is just in the "maybe I could do this" stages. I don't know if it'll happen. I would have to come to terms with...
