    OP, you keep saying this!

    Do you want a solution and things to change or do you want things to post/complain about?

    I don't think you have to put with this kind of treatment from him. But if...

    My luxury problem caused by a cat is that the 16# Cat Hat I have always wanted to wear in bed is too heavy.

    I have waited years for a cat who would dutifully sleep on my head. I told you guys...

    Yeah, how much is "too much arthritis"?

    I mean, is the joint fugly (and I have theories about some horses being more into adding bone at joint margins at the drop of a hat than others)? Or is the...

    Oh yeah? That all says he's too broken for a career on the flat, ridden up hill?

    I clearly have a lot to learn about dressaging in a serious way. The bow and a front fetlock that got hot once is...

    This is in reference to my quoted "rule" that you say negative things in private and in person and give praise in writing and in public.

    Why are you guys all about the No Trespassing message delivered in stronger terms? Neighbor has not been back. She got the message.

    Going overboard on preventing another accident by keeping a...

    I do remember the discussions of what "gulping like a fish out of water for an hour" meant in terms of the guy's suffering (or lack of it) at the time. And I don't know what it feels like to be that...

    Overstock of pets is indeed what we have.

    Seems horribly appropriate to sell them clearance style on the interwebz. So this works like Ebay and someone ships you a cat from a giant Amazon-style...

    Like you, I'll sing the praises of a well-civilized cat who can play with the appropriate restraint and Degree of Claw.

    However, it could be in this case that the scale of the scratcher and...

    OP, how come you are wigging out? It's all quiet on the Western Front, and even better (for someone worried about trespassing), the neighbor hasn't been back. Take this to mean that your neighbor...

    Yeah, that's right. See how baby reached up and groomed mamma's haunch? That's because CatHead was giving him a nice mane scratch. They were all Kumbayah in their inter-species herd.

    That list of questions to be asked via a flying change "experiment" is very helpful. I'll keep those "qualities to look for" in mind, even if I don't get a change.

    On my riding: I'm a middle...

    My there are some twisted knickers on that other forum.

    But I do take their point: Having your work evaluated by non-pros, over and over, will frustrate any professional.

    Thank you all so much for your ideas.

    On the changes issue: This horse is one who has some eventing background, so he might have a lead change of some sort. I'd like to see how easy/hard that is...

    I was most worried about the short heels on the hooves and how tightly shod he was back there. But maybe that's a mistake: The horse has a history of incorrectable forging, right? If so, I can see...

    The feet don't look too "quarter horse small" for the horse, once you see the whole picture.

    I wish the horse had more heel. Or at least it looks that way from the horse';s stance. But you said...

    Yes, IME, there are times when it makes sense to put on a shoe rotated. Usually, that has to do with using a keg shoe to accommodate a horse with some hoof asymmetries. I don't think it necessarily...
