    I've seen that picture many times, and it's generally a Gypsy Vanner. Draft Horse Friends, a horse group on Facebook, frequently has pictures of gray Clydies and everything else under the sun. ...

    I used to do this on my Arabian, with the addition of alternating rows of white and brown electrical tape over the bands to give it more color. Dressage judges didn't mind.

    tow trucks are another extrication resource (the kind with the hook on the back, not the ramp model). I'm not really sure that a bucket truck would be beefy enough to do a serious rescue, but it...

    Mike, I think that was possibly a horse trader, and the "bumper" horse is the dam of the back seat passenger. It's also possible that both were new purchases or "it followed me home, can I keep it."

    Regarding the Little House series, that's a good point about Pa moving them from point to point, but since a good number of my ancestors had the same itchy foot, I don't totally blame him. My...

    I think it looks like a steam iron. It is a cool looking trailer, though, but I've never been privileged to see one.

    I'm surprised that there hasn't been a bunch of people already post this - it's a Phillips officer's saddle, a McClellan variation, that was probably what a lot of the early Army show jumpers used. ...

    It's an original, as it has the original hair cinch. My McClellan came with the hair cinch, which became a wall-hanger, as it is too harsh and stickery to use, as well as questionable in strength...
