    I'd love to know what you texted back!!

    OP, you're a kind and generous person, and it sounds like you have a lovely place and take great care of horses in your charge. Of course she wants to keep...

    It wasn't till someone showed me that they lock WIDE open and THEN press the springs/handle that I got it. You're not alone!

    Here it's $175 for under 25 lbs, $200 for up to 50 lbs (dogs, spay). It's roughly 200 give or take as an average at the 3 or 4 places I called.

    Your builder was trying to sell you a glass door (or make you feel comfortable picking it). Cop spouse has investigated whackloads of B&Es, and glass doors are pretty darn easy. Unless you have...

    Locked always. Not that you couldn't break a window to get in, but the cop car in our driveway is a good deterrent (maybe not in some communities, it could make you a target.. but here, not so...

    For what it's worth OP, I hear you. You're doing everything you can for your mom and feel like you're on your own. This frustration on top of everything is... A lot.

    I have a bay pinto PMU, Moo. A kind sensitive guy who looks like a total plodder and is very reliable, but surprisingly sensitive. He can cart a monkey around stadium or xc, up to 2'9, and has been...

    Oh, recently saw a big property that was mostly hay but also had horses. It was fenced entirely with temporary metal fencing. Expensive, but it goes with you when you leave and let's you...

    We live in rural nowhere. Nobody stalls horses, mostly pastures with run ins.

    That said, there's a rickety old shed that the previous owners used for tack and feed, with a covered wood shed area...

    The Salvation Army was right by my college, so you could often get textbooks for under $5.

    I once got a BRAND NEW pair of full seat pikeurs for $5.99. I actually felt bad, like I was stealing...

    I have some "nice ones" but have "arm knitted" (like knitting, but you use your arms) several in different colours. They're quick and easy, a bit of warmth, a pop of colour. The arm knitting only...

    Those are brilliant! Thanks!



    My whole set up is on a solar charger ;) I think we'll just disconnect as needed or get a few of the things mentioned above.

    Thanks for chiming in, it's my...
  14. Hot wire on wood fence -- snow concerns for bottom rail

    I'm adding hot wire to my 3 board fence. It just occurred to me that the bottom rail will likely be buried in the snow.

    I don't think I have an option on my charger to turn off portions.

    When...

    She is definitely not a high energy out of her mind type. She very much has an "off" switch, and is dead quiet in the house. I just know that when we had a buddy here she was more animated, less...

    Well bless your heart. My "only motivation" is not my dogs boredom, but thanks.
  17. I know. It's just frustrating when someone is...

    I know. It's just frustrating when someone is giving me advice based on details they've added themselves. I don't know how many times I can say I have so much free time! Then I get the "but you...

    Calamber I should add that my first response the appeared to you wasn't directed at you. I've been replying on my phone and makes the quoting and whatnot a pain! I did genuinely appreciate your...

    Nothing wrong with some basic stuff, but it was suggested I put her into more serious training for agility or another sport. Too much stress on a growing dog physically and not something I'm...

    My response wasn't directed at you (except the part where I said thanks, I meant it!) but the same poster you were referring to. I have appreciated the advice, but have been very frustrated at the...
  21. I appreciate the advice, and wouldn't have been...

    I appreciate the advice, and wouldn't have been offended by anything you said. Only the posters who are condescending about their advice, or haven't bothered to read anything written. That gets...

    For the love of Pete, on the post RIGHT above yours, I already say I'm not considering a puppy anymore, only an older dog.

    I also NEVER said I don't "have time" to do an obedience class. I've...
  23. The "can't compete for your pup's attention...

    The "can't compete for your pup's attention against nothing" comment actually offends me. Perhaps you missed where I commented that I can call her off her best buddy Chesapeake?





    I...

    Thanks Calamber. I came on here asking because I wanted advice about gender dynamics and adding a second dog (which I got). I do appreciate the advice, even the advice that discouraged a second...

    That line about my excess time being devoted to the pup really came off snippy, though I'm hoping it wasn't intended that way.

    I don't want to push her too much physically this young, though...
