    How long is your old fart's nap time?

    Just curious...

    My 23 year old OTTB has always been a fan of napping. Lots of long naps in the sun, long naps with snoring/groaning in his stall, lots of rolling, etc. I've had the horse since...

    Creeping Phlox. Blankets of colorful flowers in the spring and a mossy appearance the rest of the year. Grows best in rock gardens and such, in a sunny location.

    I'm sorry for all the health problems but thankful you found a local doctor who is taking things seriously!!!

    Aside from the obvious quarantine issues, doesn't your contract specify 30 days either way? No?

    I'd want to be out ASAP anyways- an illness giving a boarding barn a bad name. Pish. The BO is...

    Definitely buy less so you don't have this freezer burned meat problem.

    How bad is the situation? Can you do a clean-out with negotiations and just use the meat he won't eat when he isn't...

    I have a 2010 Honda Insight. We bought it used around Christmas time this past year.

    I love it. It does shut off, and can be a bit sluggish to get going, but once it gets going it is quite...

    I like the idea of telling them that it is not out of the question in the future, but that right now it is not acceptable.

    Quite frankly, if they are low on money, and you offer to take him...

    In the gross majority of cases, cats that are having a urinary issue have a health problem and they are trying to tell you something.

    It is rare that a cat has an actual behavioral issue that...

    Preface: I am a lowly BN eventer that will probably never have the finances to do actual recognized events. And a teacher.

    This is almost as bad as education reform. The FEI and the DOE should...

    Bwhahaha! Sorry, I'm a teacher.

    I'd handle this by avoiding her or closing the door of my classroom during prep. Or, just stare at her until she goes away. Or laugh in her face. Seriously. ...

    Aren't you already paying for an apartment and board for the horses? I'm confused how moving to a separate apartment would make it impossible to keep the horses? Are you paying almost nothing for the...

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with being in a relationship with someone who might not be the one. There is also nothing wrong with being 24 and dating someone casually.

    Ok so we're all appalled, and I'd have totally lost my shit at this woman. In fact I would probably send her a bill for the bridle AND tell her that her actions could cost thousands in training and...

    Eventually you will meet someone who puts you first and that you will be willing to put above the horse. That's my experience.

    I commented on your other thread about this.

    It can take a while to fix this. Like, at least a year in most cases. Can you suggest the owner free lease him to a more appropriate rider? I bet...

    My 22 year old OTTB has something called EOTRH. You can google it but it's some kind of rare-ish condition where the teeth decay and are reabsorbed by the horse and as a result end up rotting and...

    My local hospital will send bills to a "collection agency." It's still a bill from the hospital, printed on collection agency letterhead.

    Put TB's hay in a container with high sides- like a rubbermaid trough.

    That will work until you go outside and find the mini IN the trough.

    It will be a good picture though.

    You 100% did the right thing. My pony passed away in 2013. I had her since 1994 and when I got her she was supposedly 14 but the vet estimated 16-18. She was at least 33 years old the way I...
