    I go out early, use a fly mask or bonnet, and do as little walking as possible. The bugs aren't so bad if you at least trot.

    I ordered 4 different brands, and ended up getting another AYR8. They're just so comfy! I got a brown one this time, it's gorgeous!

    I'm riding at three different barns and it's a huge PITA...

    What a cutie! I definitely see lab in his face. Who knows what the other side is, maybe a hound?

    I don't really see pit in him, and it might be better to avoid calling him a pit/whatever mix. ...

    So slavery, segregation, woman not allowed to own property or vote, etc were ok, because the population felt it wasn't immoral? What about laws against gay marraige? or Discrimination? It's ok to...

    I use Listerine too (at shows). My last barn used listerine at home and rinse lightly, so that the horses water always tasted the same, at home and away. Worked great for the finicky ones that...

    What are you feeding him? Most of the clean but still stinky dogs I know eat cheap, unhealthy food. Try switching him to a different food and give it a month or so to see if that helps. (The...

    Congrats! I heard you two did great, I wish I could have come and watched everyone.

    Just out of curiosity, why did you do the treatment dose if you didn't see any symptoms of ulcers?

    Depends on the trainer. My trainer does not include lessons in her full/part training.

    Mountain Horse boots are better for people with fairly wide legs, ankles, and feet. If you have skinny ankles, any of the tredstep boots are great. Ariat boots are good for average legs/ankles.

    Have you tried bring the bit higher in his mouth? My sensitive mouthed horse preferred the bit much higher than I thought should be comfortable. His mouth, his decision!

    Toys and dog parks don't mix. Every time another dog tries or succeeds to 'steal' her toy, it confirms in her mind that she has to protect her toys, basically increasing aggression.
  14. No, but I probably should. Fortunately my horse...

    No, but I probably should. Fortunately my horse is tolerant of me leaning off his neck, butt, and sides to swipe away the pests with my hands.
  15. If you plan on coming back, then yes you will...

    If you plan on coming back, then yes you will probably pay to hold your spot (either full board or a monthly holding fee. Do you expect the farm you're at to just leave the stall empty for two...

    Unfortunately you may not be able to reason with him, but it doesn't hurt to try. My grandfather has always been a kind, generous, soft spoken man, but stubborn. As he has gotten older (he's in...

    A sound horse. My horse and I were were schooling solid first and parts of second before he broke himself. I have no doubts we could have done second within a year.

    I can afford two horses,...

    My parents just left theiir first dog outside in southern summers while they were gone. My grandparents just tied the dog to a tree or let it run (rural area). I think I'm pretty happy with...

    A rather nasty update, IMO. "Poor pitiful me, I made a mistake and now someone is trying to ruin my reputation on COTH!!!!" Amastrike didn't even include the person's name, she was hardly trying to...

    You can take the saddle anywhere you want. It's one of three saddles I'm too lazy to sell, that's not going to change in the next few months! And Mr. Refuses-to-be-Sound is never jumping again, so...

    In addition to the posts above...

    No rubber/plastic bits, and make sure the extra length of stirrup leather doesn't sick out too far.

    The BPM doesn't need to be an exact match, but it does need to be a multiple of the BMP. For example, my horse has a canter BPM of around 100. His canter songs are mostly around 100 or 200 BPM. ...

    What does your cat being aggressive have to do with needing a puppy? I would think a cat savvy adult dog would be better off then a nosy puppy

    I always stop or swerve if I can do it safely. If it's safe to do so, I pull over and carry turtles across the road. But... I'd rather run over an animal then risk crashing.
