    As far as actual skiing goes, Tthe main difference is lack of trees. When its a white out in the alps its truly a white out. Slope edges are defined by poles every 50 yards or so and its easy to ski...

    If he's currently on 24/7 turnout, I'd start cutting his feed/hay in his current situation. Others gave you advice about starting this - I am not a feed expert lol. See how that goes, then reevaluate...

    I would turn him out for a year in a large field in as 'natural horsey' situation as you have available. Pull shoes, take him off all feed/meds except hay, and let him be a horse. He sounds like he...

    I just wanted to stop by and update about my earlier posts. I took bensmom's advice and conditioned the bridle using my fingers (my hands felt so good after!) then buffed it with a soft cloth,...

    Thank you! I haven't used it in a week or so, last time was on a Biltmore Estate trail ride and arabian pony got very wound up so bridle got extremely sweaty and is now a little stiff again. I will...

    Tutoring!! I tutor a rising 4th grader in everything 4 days a week for $20/hour + gas money. If you have a Masters you'll get more than that, undergraduates get slightly less but I wouldn't imagine...

    Mission to Paris by Alan Furst. The writing style is kind of strange but I'm enjoying it. It's a very easy, quick read - I picked it up at B+N (complete impulse buy!) yesterday and am nearly done. I...

    I have a large black dog who has a scary sounding bark.

    I see no need whatsoever to own a gun for personal protection.

    YES! I'm in Wilmington and anyone is welcome to our rain. It has nowhere else to go and mosquitos are breeding like crazy. I get eaten alive every time I take my dog out, as my apt complex has turned...

    I've spent a lot of time recently on craigslist for your area and down here. I think for what you're offering, in your area, 400-500 seems fair + 1/2 utilities. I would maybe consider a deposit for...

    I'm sure you know this already but just in case remember to bend your knees while you dismount because it reduces the shock. Maybe dismount using a mounting block or the fence until your knees get...

    Jan M is sooo right about the mirrors. Especially if the bathroom is small, the big rectangular ones completely take over the space. They usually don't have boarders either, which makes them look...

    I know someone from Asheville and she speaks very highly of the boarding stables at the Biltmore. She had her own farm so did not board there, but knew the place & its reputation well.

    Haven't seen any in South Eastern NC. Did listen to a hilarious program on BBC World about them though.
