    Sent one UPS from Texas-NJ; arrived just fine, and was only $150 or so.

    Equine Express also would've done it for a similar price, but they needed someone to meet them at the interstate to pick it...

    What is your body type, e.g. broad shoulders, big bust, long torso, etc.?

    Have you tried Tailored Sportsman's soft shell?

    Agreed.... I didn't know it was a celebratory thing for anyone other than the couple.

    I'm a long-distance runner, and this is exactly the opposite of what is true for most endurance athletes. Most of us are, believe it or not, carb-starved. We absolutely 100% have a dietary need for...

    Perhaps it depends on your age, but virtually EVERY European woman in their 20s/30s is wearing sneakers everywhere at the moment. Flyknits, as I mentioned above, or plain Stan Smiths...

    People rave about them! I've yet to bite the bullet too, but they look great and SO many pretty colors.

    We got ours from Target for $200—I think it was a floor model, or last season's. The floors don't know the difference, LOL.

    It's been an enormous quality-of-life improver for me, and I swear I'm...

    So fug though.

    OP, maybe I missed it, but what's the problem with safety-pinning the number? That works for 95% of the population.

    True, I guess the logic for the facilities I'm referring to was that if a horse gets out of a paddock, it's going to be during the day (no overnight turnout) and someone is more likely to see Dobbin...

    Ugh, been there... Little cheapo hand vac was simply not cutting it.

    So, I got this: http://www.amazon.com/Dyson-DC35-Digital-Slim-cordless/dp/B004GN8UYA

    I know, I know—not cheap, but also not...

    I've never been in a barn that *didn't* shut the doors at night... I always thought it was a safety issue—if a horse somehow gets out of their stall, they're at least semi-contained in the aisle....

    I've tried both Blue Apron and Hello Fresh—I far prefer Hello Fresh.

    I've had issues with Blue Apron delivering (a day late one time!) and the ingredients from Hello Fresh are fresher and more...

    Yup.

    And the cop is screaming at the kids to leave... They run. Which is it? Should they leave, or should they stay? :confused:

    Oh, good luck! I want to hear a full shoe report. And, yes, apparently lacing can make a HUGE difference!

    I'm not beholden to a particular sock as long as it's not cotton! Synthetic blends are the...

    They also have free 2-day shipping with no minimums! I don't know how they afford to do that—I give them way more business than I can afford too. :eek:

    Not true. You can return them up to 90 days after you get them; it's just that if you've run in them, you're only eligible for store credit, not a full refund—so basically you can still try many...
