    Thanks, Beverley! Hand on the horn it is.

    My horse is only 15.1 hh, and I'm 5'8", so in theory I can leave one foot in the stirrup till the other one is on the ground. In practice, it may...

    UPDATE: A man in the community told my BIL that a group of hunters (well known to stray from the letter of law given the opportunity) has been intentionally hunting the farm during working hours. ...
  3. How to avoid hanging self by belt when dismounting?

    Last weekend, I kicked my right foot out of the stirrup, brought my right leg over the cantle, then took my left foot out and prepared to slide down.

    Only my slide was abruptly arrested. Before...

    Cindyg, thank you for that link! I'm going to download it to my tablet and read it over Thanksgiving. Somebody should've written that book a long time ago - like, before I got my first horse :lol:...

    Two things might be helpful.
    1. A Black's Law Dictionary. I remember my first year of law school I had to look up every other word, it seemed. :) But it really really helps to know what all the...

    ZOMG. I would have crawled behind the fridge and hidden till they got home!

    I was nine when the murders happened. We lived all the way across the country, but they still freaked me out. Even...

    Thanks to this thread, I downloaded Susan Atkins's book she wrote with her husband (who married her in prison after reading her first book). It's called The Myth of Helter Skelter.

    She says he...

    Absolutely right! He should have been fertilizing some part of a potters field in Ca long ere this.

    Manson is a murderer. Doesn't matter, under the law, that he didn't wield the knife himself...

    So y'all help me out here. I just read the last one, and somewhere in there it says Sister Jane's maiden name was Overton. I could've sworn an earlier book said she was an Overdorff before she...

    My name peaked in 1930. :lol: I guess my mother was only about thirty years behind the curve.

    To be fair, though, she named me after my great-grandmother. I wonder why people don't seem to name...

    Please. South Carolina.

    North Carolina, when it comes to dirty politics, can't even carry our tool boxes. :lol:

    When John McCain was running for President, we had robo calls asking "would...

    Old news. And yeah, I thought it was a classless move on Sheheen's part. I still voted for him, but that's because I think Haley has been a bad governor.

    Not defending him, but putting it in...

    I think you should trust your instincts and move if the trainer has an available stall and your tour goes well. The fact that the BW has such poor judgment as to smoke in the barn in the first place...

    I'm so sorry. Does the facility have a run-in shed where your horse could have shelter but not be confined? If so, then I'd ask the BO to move my horse there. If not, I'd move.

    I've been in...

    Ha! Apparently five years ago I said I was ambivalent. At the time I had a part-lease on a horse at my lesson barn and had my two horses at home.

    Now, five years later - I bought the horse I...

    My paternal great great grandfather was in the Confederate cavalry.
    I don't know about his son - I never saw my great grandfather ride - but his granddaughter was an accomplished rider.

    Y'all, I think schatze is making a little parody. :) Very well done, too! :D

    Epona - I agree 100%. I've actually had people tell me - though not in a long time, ever since menopause removed the...

    Here's the only thing, Heinz - if y'all wind up living together or getting married (I know, long way off, but still) then you're not going to be able to have a firearm in the house. Or he risks...

    Well, hell, even Jesus got arrested.

    So yes of course it would depend on what the arrest was for. Might depend on whether or not there was a conviction or not. For instance, a friend was dating...

    wendy - I know some dogs who would ignore a live flapping squawking chicken to do their work. Heck, I know border collies who completely ignore bitches in heat to work their sheep. But the dogs I...

    Why not reinstate Kat (who did contribute to the fund of horse-related knowledge) and ban the OT forum (which does not)?

    I will miss her. I probably would not have bought my Fabtron Lady Trail...

    So glad for you and your horse. :)

    Do you think it would be more nearly correct to call it "californio" or "vaquero" style horsemanship? My trainer certainly uses those concepts, but most of...

    I read it more as the OP doesn't want to drag new BF to something he wouldn't enjoy - not that she needed him to be all yippy-skippy about it. :)

    This will pass, you know. :lol: Probably right...

    Oh, how have I quit smoking? Let me count the ways.:D:D
