    Heck yes. I earn 26 days a year and like tabulah rashah said, you have to use it or lose it (there is a limit to how many vacation hours you can carry over from one year to the next). I work to...

    Are you saying that you only quote 'unbiased' peer reviewed sources?
  3. I have actually only owned one horse who...

    I have actually only owned one horse who 'required' a bit change every 6-8 weeks. And whether it was a stronger or less strong bit was irrelevant, just 'change.' When I showed western in my youth,...

    I have seen, and heard, really blatant and disturbing racist actions and remarks across all income 'classes.' And there's telling 'silent treatment' too. At my father's funeral in Houston a couple...

    When we moved to Utah in '95 from the D.C. areas, my young sons asked after a few weeks of driving around, 'why is everyone here white?' It was very off-putting to them having grown up with...

    I agree, get a lawyer. There is mention in the thread of property damage, I would be photodocumenting that, and consider installing wildlife cameras to get date stamped pictures to further document....

    Oh good grief Rockbridge, who are you trying to fool? Did you not read the posts that he has no horses for sale?

    Actually, I've never done that much prep work. I have gone to pick up horses I've bought and never had a problem bringing them home, being careful of course to drive right so the experience is good...

    Valid point. I don't know who dialed 911, but before, and even after, the police car pulled up, he was not exhibiting specific 'danger to self and others.' Does make you wonder what the outcome...

    I empathize on the horse sales ads. 'For Sale: 6 year old chestnut gelding.' First question: How old is it? Second question: What color is it?

    I think in these parts, the failure to...

    I agree that it's not so cut and dried either way. It does differ from police accounts of him 'charging' and only being shot from 3-4 feet away- but he did keep coming despite warnings. Suicide by...

    Wait Until Dark, with Audrey Hepburn, from the 60s. You won't get quite the same effect as sitting in a big dark theater, but if you sit in darkness save the tv screen, it'll still be pretty good.

    'Own son of' is just another way of explaining who the sire is. Secretariat was sired by Bold Ruler, was therefore an 'own son' of Bold Ruler.

    There are still MANY employers out there who hire laborers under the radar, for cash. Therefore, still many cases where employers do not require documentation. And, heck, big employers do it too,...

    Well actually I am watching news coverage on that now, interview of the Mayor. He is giving cogent answers so far. Including noting the need to gather all the evidence before drawing conclusions.

    I think you have a good idea, my experience over the years is that when you convey to the horse that 'I have all day and I will be here with you until you load' they do get the message. It's when...

    Are you talking about the shooting yesterday of the knife-wielder who charged the cops and was shot when he got within lethal range, 3-4 feet? Asking why not use the taser is a fair question which...

    I have always weed whacked, even when I owned a Weed-Eater. Come to think of it I don't know what the current Black and Decker thing is called. I will have to look.

    I don't need to google to know what horse tripping is, and I am, it would appear, far more aware than you of how Hispanics regard their horses, old, young, and in between. Having, among other...

    Ah, I did space on your reference to the 'McBride' brand. I think what I have is made in England if not by S-W, I'll have to look at the stamp.
