    A small space heater is at least $15.

    A 100w light bulb was less than $1.00

    The amount of power used by that light bulb is less...

    It's de je vu all over again.

    There was the almost same battle here the definition of a hoodlum about 6 months ago. Apparently, French Fry didn't get the message the last time. (I think she...

    Another good book is the USTA's Care and Training of the Trotter and Pacer. It's written for standardbreds obviously, but covers all aspects of horsemanship - breeding, shoeing, training, tack,...

    I'm not sure that 33 is actually young to be going grey. I had grey hairs in my mid 20s.

    The thing is that so few people today are actually letting themselves go grey, that 30 seems young. No...

    My two Siamese have had asthma for about 10 years (they're 15 now).

    They hack and wheeze. There's nothing like waking up to a cat coughing up a lung in your face a 2 am. They sound like they are...

    This is exactly why the last cat came from Craigslist.

    My dad got his last dog from a shelter/rescue and it was a giant PITA. A few dogs missed hitting the lottery because of shelter/rescue BS. ...

    My foreclosure had at least one hole in the wall in every room, and some of the doors.

    If the former owners/tenants didn't trash the place, the heating & plumbing may just have been stolen for...

    I got your point. I don't agree with it. I don't think what the kid was doing in any way shape or form warranted the response from the horse.

    If someone was beating the crap out of the horse,...

    I had my first mare with a trainer because I didn't have enough time to work her. She jumped out of the barn daily when they went to long line her. She was 12 or 13. Trainer kinda hated the horse....

    A horse isn't going to write a book, but you can't tell me that they are incapable of differentiating between a horse, dog, kid, cat or goat.

    I have seen a lot of orangutans in my horsey life. Ones that throw themselves in harness, runaways, kickers, and just plain nasty. When my mare was fit, it was like tacking up a piranha. My BO is...

    Welcome to real life.

    General rule of thumb - it's ok for the boss to keep you waiting, not the other way around.

    You're there for 3 months and want a vacation?:eek: I could see a Friday off,...

    You have my sincerest sympathy traveling with that lot.

    I took 3 cats (2 old road warriors and an 8wk old kitten) on a road trip in May. It was a long trip.

    My trainer fixes saddles (among everything else :lol:)

    I believe he has fixed splits like this just by basically just gluing the leather down. It works on cutback saddles and we keep our butts in...

    My trainer has a mare he never got to a show last year. She. Would. Not. Load.

    You and me both. :)

    I'm not a germaphobe, either. I've met a couple and don't think I could live like that - too much effort.

    Not a horse I'd keep. The kid was a brat, but I've never seen any kid that size strong enough to cause a horse actual harm. Kid weighs ~60 pounds tops, horse weighs a ton. Not really a fair fight....

    Lease your horse so you can lease another horse? Doesn't make much sense to me, when you have a marketable horse. Not like the OP's horse is 25 and...
