    It was a real email a friend of mine got about an Andy she had for sale, and she was kind enough to share it with me so we could both fall out of our chairs laughing. I've kept it so I can reread it...

    Depends on the horse, where we are riding, and who is with us. The last ride I did (months ago due to being pregnant), we walked only for seven miles both days. I wasn't comfortable with anything...

    Oh I wonder if it was this woman (I had forgotten about her, I had to dig the email out of my archives):

    I'll tell you what I'm looking for, and that might help. She looks good!

    Can you just listen to them? Or are they asking for advice/help/etc? Sometimes we just need someone to listen when we're going through a tough time. I know I do well with having a sounding board.

    My 28 year old Arab stallion competed in NRHA reining and at Arab Nationals in reining (made the finals, but got hurt and couldn't compete). He was not campaigned hard, but at 28 he's still ridable...

    I was in my 30s when my mom was diagnosed with ALS and then died. My dad had been remarried since I was 17, but I was never close to his wife.

    For me, it helped that she didn't try too hard, BUT...

    They had to be related, right? That many crazy genes can't be running around out there, can they? :)

    My MIL had bought her first horse (and only horse), and it turned out we're fairly sure the horse had been drugged before purchase. She had issues, so my MIL wanted to sell her. I was honest with...

    Pre-pregnancy I was considering going back to get a MS and PhD in Psychology (my undergrad degree is psych). I wanted to do research on hoarding, combining my Animal Science degrees and Psych....

    For site-seeing in San Antonio, I love the missions. The Alamo is neat, but touristy (IMHO). I love the other, lesser known missions. They're beautiful, fairly quiet (at least when we were there),...

    We've had to do single event insurance before for events that weren't covered by our regular policy. The amount depends on what you are doing, how many you believe will attend, etc.

    If another...

    My husband would ditto Fred's husband. (The only reason he's not a guitar geek on Fred's husband's level is because he isn't a full time pro :)).

    He's been playing for 20+ years and sometimes he...

    I've watched my old stallion watch the fireworks. You can see him moving him head, tracking them across the sky.

    My husband loves fireworks. It is one perk for him of living out in the...

    Where is Camp Rusk? I checked briefly over their website and didn't see a location. Weather varies a lot across the state - some areas are horrifically humid while others are quite dry. (It was an...

    I pay $25/visit for 6 horses, 3 dogs, and 6 cats. I pay more if I need stalls cleaned or someone needs special care. She also doesn't charge me extra for the rescue horses who are here (if any). I...

    My first thought was: go to college so you have something to fall back on. But on second thought, I say take a year off, follow your horsey dreams, and see what happens. I wish I had done...

    I loved the Barnsby saddle seat saddle I used to have - and kick myself all the time for selling it. :(

    I feel for everyone involved - it is a crappy situation.

    I'm pretty sure the last place we boarded covered situations like this in their contract. It said something to the effect that all...

    I refused to have RLS for years. I thought the condition was silly and was NOT going to have something like that.

    Well, I was an idiot. :) I went to the doctor because my legs ached and I could...

    Congrats!

    When DH and I were first living together, we bought a mobile home for $50. You can probably imagine that it was pretty awful. :) The guy was a slob, had a bunch of feral cats that he...

    I'm not so sure of that - we have had many around here, and I still panic when I see one. I agreed to let the non-poisonous ones live (after DH killed two rat snakes that scared me and we both felt...

    Maybe it is regional. I've had a hard time here with two different vets. For the first one, the rescue took in an older horse who was emaciated. We were feeding this old horse tons of feed (and...
