Make sure your farrier doesn't believe in 'long toes'.
Why do you ride dressage?
Because I'm OCD
I overheard a fellow boarder talk (at length) about her husband's wrist watch collection and I caught myself thinking "how new money" she sounded. Dear god, what a snob thought that was.
Why are you feeding it?
I feed lots of birds.
I need to put up the hummingbird feeder this week.
The feeder that has been the most fun has been the peanut feeder. We get 3 kinds of woodpeckers, nuthatches, red...
I have both.
I find the big galvanized cans to be the most useful because they hold the most water, saving trips to the tap. But eventually the seams fail and they leak.
However, the Haws cans...
All of the passive-aggressive click bait posts infuriate me.
Share if you hate animal abuse.
Like if you support clean air.
Pray for this horribly deformed child to help heal her by reposting.
I deal with this with my MOTHER.
She is in her 90s and grew up on a hardscrabble farm, and every time I have a beloved pet die, she tells me how much she hated our childhood cats and was...
I briefly had a farrier who insisted that longer toes were the proper way to shoe a dressage horse. That ended with a huge trip. Idjit literally somersaulted while we were cantering; i'm not quite...
I got lectured by a snotty kid that old-lady-rider-me MUST have fallen off my horse, cause a horse never throws a rider.
Honey, I got pitched high enough to reach the ends of the stirrups and...
I agree with this.
ADDITIONALLY, pouring yourself into fixing the troubles of others (human or animal) is a perfectly valid way of dealing with emotional issues if you have them.
Store the containers in a box with a lid
I have a friend who has a service dog. Among other things, she has balance issues and needs a big dog. Her last dog was a superbly trained mastiff X who sadly passed away last week. She cant...
cornfields - as soon as the corn in the field next to the arena is eye level height, I can no longer work in that end of the arena.
We work and work on desensitization, and he gets so I can RIDE...
I swear by this one!!...
Heaves can happen on grass.
My old lady cat used to adore cooked veggies. She'd kill for brocolli, but would also beg for peas, corn, asparagus, etc. And popcorn which I would carefully hull.
I used to worry about veggies...
My daughter uses a tsp of coconut oil per day for her underweight cat. As always check with your vet.
My very affectionate cats only really sprawl in the sunbeams and on the heat register.
My horse had similar symptoms. It turned out to be encysted strongyles. I powerpaked him and changed my deworming methods, and the colics stopped.
The Saga of the "Quiet Horse That Trail Rides"
My beloved idjit used to dump me with some regularity, so on particularly iffy days I'd ride in my western saddle. He never did get me off in that saddle. So that may be something to consider if...
I'd be wearing a helmet and safety vest when handling this horse until it is GONE.
