    Lady E, I've just dragged up an old post of mine that might be helpful. Alcohol Fusion is in the title.

    I'm bringing this up for Lady Eboshi. Gosh, this is 5 years ago now! The old man is still with us, both patterns are solidly fused and look pretty gnarly. He gets around pretty well on a quarter...

    The chance of a bad reaction to hock injections...

    The chance of a bad reaction to hock injections is miniscule compared to the benefits. I'd definitely do that before tildren. Especially when your aim is ultimately frankly to degrade the joint so...

    That is exactly the size of my ring at home (measured in 8ft railroad ties...) It's tough on anything over 16 hands, but it is doable as long as you don't ride in it ALL the time.

    A couple of boards screwed diagonally across the corner of you stall, or a right angled triangle made out of wood stuck in the corner if you/BO are queasy about screwing stuff into the stall walls,...

    Statin side effects can include pretty severe muscle pain, as I discovered.

    Try red yeast rice. That's what lowered my levels (I don't eat any dairy and not a lot of meat so there weren't many...

    Just about to head out for a follow up appointment with my back doc 3 weeks after having my SI and piriformis injected.

    I'd like to know how many of us who are hopeless at this are left handed? That's what I blame it on, anyway. I failed my first driving test because I turned right instead of left at a junction...

    They offer a little more protection to the seat bones, and don't wear as quickly as knee patch breeches, if you are sitting in the saddle a la dressage, also.

    I don't find the synthetic seat ones...

    Nice! And I know that spot!

    I was entered. Had to scratch as I'm a sickie. Oh well, there will be other shows!

    Ah hah... so that means the frilly jobs probably are legal--that's an integrated stand up collar. I was looking at the magnet closure ones, too and wondering, so that is useful information. Thank...

    That's what I feared EP. I was just thinking it was too good and sensible an idea to be allowed.

    Back to the drawing board, I guess!

    Yes, this would be for coat days. If I can wear an open necked shirt, I will!

    I feed an oats, alfalfa pellets and rice bran mix with an added vitamin supplement, and hay. Horses all look great on it, hooves and coats are good, bright eyes and energy.

    Yes, I was thinking the white on white. I despise stock ties. Apparently I have a larger neck than most of the rest of the population as the darn things always strangle me! its either something...

    I was looking through thru the Goode Rider site and noticed they have a couple of show shirts with frilly fronts and high collars that are designed to be worn without a stock tie. Can one really get...
