    Some of the Amish I know drink, they're just not so open about it as the English. I used to haul my horses to an Amish farrier. On Saturdays there were several Amish farriers and a line of people...

    I'd be screwed if I accidentally locked the house doors- I'm not sure where the keys are. The only time it's ever been locked is when both DH and I went away for the night (once). However, the barn...

    I'm so glad I don't live in NY anymore. One snowstorm I was thankful for the attached garage- otherwise we wouldn't have been able to get out the regular doors. That garage had a dirt floor and the...

    My trailer hasn't been used once this past year, and I wouldn't dream of selling it, even though in an emergency I could easily borrow a trailer (and truck if need be). I can't get rid of the truck-...

    Pegboard. I just have a piece hanging on my wall, but a good idea I saw was to run a strip of pegboard around the top of the tack room near the ceiling in otherwise unused space. The lady used a hook...

    I'm not fond of most Christmas music, but I like "Hippopotamus for Christmas" and I love "I am Santa Claus".

    ETA: WillyVW- listen to "I am Santa Claus", you might like that one just a little.

    It is a really old thread. If you asked me 5 years ago I would have said no, I don't regret it. But now, I get tired of it at times. Like when the weather sucks or I would just like to go somewhere...

    I've only had lamb once, and it was icky enough to me that I'll probably never try it again. I do like venison (or "deer meat" as they call it around here!) and I'll try just about anything. I'm...

    Anybody raise Boer goats?

    I was pondering the idea of raising a couple of Boer goats for meat. A 50# carcass or two sounds like a manageable amount of meat for the two of us. First step, of course, is to see if I like goat...

    I'll ride any horse that isn't going to try to hurt me. I'm too old for that kind of crap. I like hot and/or game, I can deal with silly or spooky, but I'm not dealing with rearing more than a couple...

    I just googled the style # again of my favorite jacket- it's this one. Last time I looked- over a year ago- I couldn't find it other than marked "discontinued". Maybe I'll get myself a monogrammed...

    My favorite jackets ever are Port Authority. I got them as one of my uniform choices when I worked in a factory. Unfortunately, they no longer make my favorite style- hooded, sweatshirt type lining,...

    I have several with cut tails. They have full use of their tails- one of my horses is very good at swatting me with his tail while I'm cleaning his stall-I'm quite certain it was cut when he was...

    I just took my recently purchased '94 Toyota with 275K on it on a five hour trip and didn't think twice about it. Several years ago I got a phone call that I needed to be in FL ASAP. I hopped in my...

    I just bought this one from Sears. In the store it was $379, so a little over $400 after tax. It's also energy star rated so I'll get a $75 rebate from my utility co. So far I like it and it seems...

    Homemade sweet potato chews?

    I saw dried sweet potato chips in a catalog and thought "Hey, I could make those!"

    Anyway, since I don't get out much :D, I was wondering if most dogs like them. I have Corgis which generally eat...

    Yup, it's my worst habit. My trainer fusses at me fairly regularly. I think it comes from riding idiots and/or green horses, but that's not a good excuse. It's not like I can't feel a diagonal or...

    The job I just left (but staying PRN) is 7a-7p, but usually was more like 6:45 to 7:30. Starting a new job this week, 6P-6:30A. I love night shift and it pays more.

    Why would you dump a full 5 gal bucket of water?...

    Why would you dump a full 5 gal bucket of water? If I don't water and wait 'til an hour or so after I feed, the buckets generally have an inch or two of water in them. I only have one bucket per...

    Where do you live? Manhattan? Alaska? It's almost always on sale 3 for $10 around here. Heck I got 6 packs of bottles of Pepsi for $1.99 last week.

    I don't even look at the cost of beverages...

    To echo the other posts, forget the "bond" crap and treat the horse like a horse.
