    Why delete it? It's about a small bug in Chrome that is slightly amusing. It is not a virus, spyware, or anything that would cause more than half a seconds irritation if you click on the link within...

    The horse that is 100% a non-essential luxury item in of itself.

    An adult in a high-risk pregnancy less than a year after her last child died. I cannot imagine the stress she is under. I don't think I'd even be functioning well enough to work in this circumstance!...

    I celebrate it as a general fancy food and gift-giving holiday. It's so commercial and secularized in America that it's easy to enjoy the time with friends and family while ignoring any religious...

    If you're just curious, you probably need to reword some of your posts. Right now you just come across as ableist.

    I hate people like this.

    I have been in the position of having to make a decision on a horse that was dangerous for any use- I put the poor thing down. It would have been nice to have some money...

    A trainer is not going to build a name for themselves and make sure the barn stays full, the sale horses sell and the mortgage gets paid by aiming for WEG.

    I second the double diamond halters. Silvertip halters are also nice, with a similar feel to the double diamond.

    For thinner, 'softer' halter or ones with extra knots I like sunset halters....
