    Sounds like you're burned out. Take a break. Even if you don't come back to full involvement with horses, you still can get your fix with your retired horse.

    I took a break several years ago...

    If you want him back, get him back. I think it really is that simple. When you lease a horse and ride him and show him and love him, it's with the risk that you will lose that ride because the...

    I lent not only my trailer but my truck to my neighbor. I got them back and the trailer was fine but he had dropped the tailgate onto the jack handle and there was a huge dent on the tailgate. Then...

    I don't touch a horse that I don't know on the face when I first meet them. I will stroke their neck or shoulder and let them sniff my hand. After all, I don't know if they'll nip at me and it...

    I had a neighbor we all called "Speedo Man". He was always outside, in his teeny little speedo. Believe me, he didn't have the body for it, either.

    It's violent. I have a 9 year old grandson and I don't think he should see it. My daughter saw the original when it came out on video, and we could fast forward through the scary or gory parts. ...

    I saw it last night. I enjoyed it. Was it as awe inspiring as the original? No. But it was way better than JP2 and JP3. Chris Pratt is really good. It was what I expected it to be. The theater...

    My daughter came in to watch with me because "I want to be able to say I saw the Triple Crown being won in my lifetime."

    I limited their pasture time at first, for about five days, then just let them go. They have access to their stalls 24/7, and now will stay out most of the time when the weather's good. They love...

    I tried to watch it, but gave up after an hour. I thought it was boring.

    So many of the Indians had on bad wigs.
