    Haha! Sounds like a great idea you have. But last year a friend bought a 16 yr old TB for $2500. He's a school master in the arena, sometimes a bit fast "out & about". Guess one has to pay a good...

    I don't want to sound ignorant -- but do you just let the Muscovy ducks loose on the property, or set them in

    Horses, (much like humans) don't remain static. Your gelding has dealt with several big changes in his life, plus he's continued to age. Just getting older can make an individual more grumpy, and...

    I think that I'd be more likely to actually show again if the clothing was adapted to the Climate. Living the the steamy south, I can't manage to ride in a wool coat in the summer months. I like...

    It sounds as if your daughter has experienced far more of high school life than many - and like (most) here, I'd say the "Senior Experience" is over-rated - perpetuated by all the traditional "hype"...

    I wear sunglasses while riding from about March to the end of October because my farm is surrounded by wetland - and half the year is host to an infinite amount of gnats. The sunglasses do double...

    Maybe someone should call Jim to ask what WAS his inspiration for this "emblem"? I wouldn't give $5.00... or $.05 for it. I can't imagine anyone wanting this, much less "creating" it.
