    Bensmom--first of all, I'm in love with your products. I've been actively seeking out leather things to clean, and the lemon soap I purchased through Jeffers smells like pie while the balm smells...

    I went out this morning to ride a friend's big greenie and my aunt asked me this afternoon why I hadn't brought my (beginner who thinks she knows waaaaay more than she does) with me. "Aren't they...

    There are very few Stephen Spielberg movies I like, but the two that stuck out the most were Saving Private Ryan and Lincoln. Lincoln was actually the last movie I saw in a theater and I don't think...

    I have no idea where my earworms come from. Except lately I've started watching Orange is the New Black and I've had either the theme song or the song that plays during the credits of the chicken...

    I hate Jane Austen books. I'm not fond of Dickens, either, and Tess of the D'Urbervilles made me really angry.

    I never got all the fuss about The Catcher in the Rye. I probably would've given up...

    I love having a horse that gives me a lot of feedback re: his likes and dislikes. Most of the time, anyway. I could do without the "I have a tiny scrape on x leg so you're not even allowed to look...

    Medium. TR tights run big. I wear a size 14-16 US and usually get a Large in their summer models. XL in winter ones so I can layer easily. The Prixtecs are my favorite.

    ...that they used to hate?

    For the first year I had him, I rode my TB in a rubber single-jointed loose ring. On the advice of my then-trainer, I switched him to a french link D because we were...

    I use this one--it was a little over $20 IIRC. It's on summer #3 and hasn't failed me yet. It's quiet and has held up well to horses using it as a chew toy (I'm looking at you, fat cowpony). I do...

    OP, thanks so much for keeping us updated on this saga. I can only imagine how frustrating it's been for you, but it's been super educational (for me, at least). I hope your horse keeps getting...

    I feed a mix of Ultium and Purina Senior for this very reason. There have been a few times when my (awesome) local feed store is out of Ultium but at least the horses are used to Senior so I can...

    Usually my terrier will take care of a live mouse caught in a trap. He doesn't play with it like the cats or the big dog will, so it's a quick end. Otherwise I'll use a shovel. I can't stand to...

    I like Horseshoer's Secret and Farrier's Fix. I do notice a difference using them in the summer when the ground here is dry and hard and the horses have been stomping at flies. However, they aren't...

    I wear a DD in the uniboob models and an E in the Maia. There's a little bit of squishing when brand new but once they've stretched a little they fit fine. Moving Comfort tends to run a little bit...

    STUDY #6--short neck with a thick throatlatch (wouldn't surprise me if he was a cribber). His shoulder and hind end are lovely, although it's hard to tell about his coupling from this angle. I'm...

    I just got one of these and while I didn't find it quite as supportive as my favorite Moving Comfort bras, it was more comfortable and very breathable. I'm pretty large chested, though. It does run...

    Seconding Five Star Tack! Mine shows very minimal signs of wear after 3 years of use. There are barely any marks on the holes I use. And no annoying fleece on the noseband, either.

    That's the July issue. I just finished reading it.

    I make a butternut squash cake that is delicious. I've also got a good basic shortbread cookie recipe and dress it up with different flavors. I've done cardamom-almond, cinnamon dipped in dark...

    I dunno, all the ranch horses seem to like coming up to me for face scritches. My horse will actually nudge my hand if I stop before he's ready for scritching time to be over. *sigh* I guess I'm...

    I've kept my TB on a drylot with 24/7 hay and in an 80 acre pasture full of grass. Can't tell much of a difference that wouldn't be explained by an environment with a lot less humidity and more...

    P.S. this was the zucchini I let grow last year purely to see how big is would get.

    I have a big garden (30' x 45'). It's coming along slowly, even with Mother Nature having mood swings. I have corn, green beans, various tomatoes, butternut squash, acorn squash, zucchini, yellow...

    I used to teach at a barn where the indoor was roughly 20m x 40m. Yes, we jumped. You have to be very organized, but it's definitely doable. Huge tip--make skinnier jumps! 8' is plenty wide...

    I can get my heels down too far and I hate riding with jointed stirrups because they make the problem worse. I would try a stirrup with a wider footbed or a different type of stirrup pad--I have...
