    Right. I had one of those. Don't know why, but although a saint under saddle, he felt he had to defend himself on the end of a lunge if someone picked up a whip. Had no compunction whatsoever...

    I would put her on a lunge so I could turn her head towards me. That way, her back feet would be pointed away from me. :)

    I do not love lunging. But I do it, because I have finally been...

    Except for this poor guy who was doing exactly as instructed - retrieving his drivers license - when the cop shot him for reaching into his vehicle. :rolleyes:

    From this article


    So he's a wife-beating, puppy-murdering horse thief. Can't work up a whole lot of outrage over what happened to him.

    I can't imagine how he didn't get shot by the police...

    Wow, did no one else get directed to a scary pop-up ad instead of the daily mail website?

    It's different because the leverage bit will always be a part of the ride. The correction will not - done right, it won't need constant repetition.

    I'd always rather see a sharp effective...

    Used to not. Then I'd wind up stressed because my horse wasn't getting worked. And he's the type who has to be in regular work, or he becomes difficult. So then my rides would be stressful when I...

    Must be my problem, too. It thinks I'm either from Winston-Salem NC or Jackson Mississippi. :lol: I'm a native South Carolinian.

    Thank you! I have very fond memories of my first pony, a Shetland mare, and didn't think there were any of these around any more on this side of the Atlantic. One day I'm going to have one of...

    My dad's side of the family says "yu'uns" instead of "y'all." And then there is the even more plural (:confused:) "yu'unses."

    They're all from South Carolina. But the far northwestern corner,...

    Southern accents vary a great deal. When you say you dislike the sound of a southern accent, which one do you mean? Can you give me an example of a famous person who speaks with the kind of accent...

    This week I lost a horse and euthanized my elderly border collie. :(

    The horse colicked one morning. Vet came out, tubed, hydrated and sedated. Horse was 27 so not a candidate for surgery. When...

    Leave your head in position, chin up, facing forward, and just glance down with your eyes. :) Your head weighs a lot (all those brains, right? :yes:) so if you let your head tip forward you...

    For the past year, I've had a border collie who can't get up on her own. Once I help her up, she gets around fine - until she falls. :( One vet says hip dysplasia. Another vet says spinal stenosis...

    I started with a dozen chicks and now, nearly a year later, still have eight hens. They free-range during the day and are locked up in the chicken house at night.

    They have helped tremendously...

    Hand-Crafted Jewels.

    Very good quality, acres of choices, fast service, and you cannot beat the prices. :)

    Beware! I hung myself by my belt from my saddle horn recently. Right after I'd handed someone my knife and ridden away. :uhoh:

    I posted a thread here asking for advice, and found my best method...

    No. :lol: My trainer had me try it on Conjure when he had a case of the spooks after moving to the new barn. I'm told it's supposed to remind them of the bond they felt with their dams.

    If so,...

    If somebody tells me they're thinking about doing something, I believe them and respond accordingly.

    Do some horses - especially grumpy schoolies - pull faces and never escalate? Sure. I used to...

    Heck yes I correct it! When I'm riding him, his attention better be on me, not on evil plans of world domination or whatever.:lol:

    I might offer him a good deal first - a twitch of the rein to...

    My neighbor insists people remove their shoes at her door. In her case, it's because she's tight as a tick with money and thinks it saves wear on her carpet - if you go in the side door onto the...
