    I think also that there are a lot of horses that just don't enjoy that kind of work. It is physically challenging for many horses, even for a horse that is fit and in regular work. It is where the...

    For myself, it makes very little sense to sell things because the money I'd get for them is so much less than the replacement cost. So I've mostly kept it all, and nearly everything I own has been...

    1. Even if it were true, so what?
    2. You may be horrified to learn that research shows that around 5% of children raised by straight parents turn into gay adults.

    I have mixed brown and black on many occasions and no one has ever said a word to me. You're probably wearing a black coat and black boots and a black hat so that matches whatever black your leather...

    If there's some magic for getting a manually pounded post straight, I'd so love to hear it.

    So you understand that is already the law, right? Having a US citizen child does not protect you from deportation. There are thousands of such deportations every year. I am aware both of cases where...

    If the horse is uneven on hard ground, and you're asked to jog on hard ground, you should expect to be spun. However, if it's slight, they may give you the benefit of the doubt.

    There seem to be two reasons that manual transmissions are getting rarer; one is that fewer people want to drive one because they don't feel skilled with it. But the other is that the automatics are...

    One other thing when searching for trainers, is to consider trainers whose focus is eventing in addition to those teaching only dressage. To win in lower level eventing, your dressage must be very...

    It looks like a Dorper to me, which is a hair sheep, no wool. If it is a wool sheep, you can use regular body clippers to clip/shear it if it is clean.

    The copper sensitivity in sheep is a Thing,...

    I also am somewhat distressed about the willingness to throw heirloom livestock breeds under the bus. The truth is, if we want to change animal agriculture because we have concerns about certain...

    Here is what I think.

    I think that having a jump crew member crossing your path or potentially crossing your path absolutely could affect the performance. There's a reason we generally don't want...

    If your student just wants a basic, useful, inexpensive jumping saddle, I'd suggest locating a used Stubben Siegfried. They're great saddles, plentiful, and if you find one that is a little tired,...

    This sums up a lot of my feelings about HSUS, and in particular the last. People advocating for animal 'rights' who really know nothing about animals and their needs and wants.

    It depends on your region. Obviously, you can't support horses on pasture in that space, but in Southern California there are many places - some quite nice - with a high horse density per acre. I...

    Pay your bill.

    Hay doesn't have to be green to be nutritious. There are many hays that are brown that are fine for horses, including oat hay. If your horses are not losing weight, the hay is...

    The expense is less in the equipment and more in the cost to purchase and deliver many tons of sand and rock. The cost will vary depending on how far you are from a quarry.

    If you have another place to ride, then I'd say it's probably not worth the expense. They are expensive! But, everything is relative to your resources. And, that you're asking the question suggests...

    Fancy stock ties seem to be becoming a Thing since apparently no one thought to specify much about them in the rules. :lol:
