    Very happy I attended a school with NO greek system at all. It was not problem free by any means but just not having the frat boy/sorority girl culture is huge, when it comes to safety.

    What I am thinking about this morning are the voices of black people I have heard since yesterday morning.

    I have one pair (??) for show and do like them quite a lot. No camel toe and they have held up nicely -- a little wear behind the knees but that happens with all or most breeches for me. They are a...

    Why is it even relevant? Did he deserve to die BECAUSE of this ridiculously stupid and criminal act? Did Wilson even know he'd done it?

    I would also really like to see transcripts of the other...

    I don't watch a lot of TV but I will catch up on Dr Who and possibly go back to watch some "must-see" episodes like Blink.

    Also Downton Abbey, eventually. This will include re-watching seasons 1,...

    Or, take the noseband off your bridle, keeping a snaffle bit and headstall, and see what happens. I typically ride this way when riding bareback, so I can really feel what I am doing.

    Around here, there are definitely vets who will start a horse on doxy before test results come back. Lyme isn't the only concern; there are several other tick-borne diseases that respond to doxy and...

    On low carb feeds -- places where I have boarded have made them available at no extra charge to any horse that is at risk for IR, laminitis, etc. These barns have had adult horses only. So think...

    I have also found the judicious use of voice commands really helps. If a halt isn't happening, a gentle "Ho" gets the mare stopped. It's the same as I use on the ground. I've used it for other...

    Thanks for this thread. Mare currently has hock sores, and I think it's because of arthritis more than anything. The left hock is worse and that's the one with worse arthritis.

    She has a shed...

    Venice, does the back pad attach to anything or do you just layer it under an ordinary saddle pad? Mare is super tight in the back now that it is cold. I can't put it on for 2 hours before riding,...

    Actually the biggest problem I've had in a while is a trainer complimenting my riding when it's really been atrocious. Made me not trust that trainer anymore.

    I think a lot of the knot in the welfare problem is a simple "what happens to the children?"

    They didn't ask to be born and they didn't ask to have parents who make bad choices.
