    Does your dealer have Legends Omega Plus? It's a flax based, extruded pellet, I think 25% fat. Lots of horses don't like real oily feed, not to mention the expense. My horses have liked the Omega...

    We all know you can follow every rule in the books and still end up with a horse that doesn't work out.

    Good luck Crone, I'm rooting for you!

    Once a person breeds selectively, doesn't that remove "natural selection" by definition? If the horse isn't bred in the wild, can you still call it a mustang?

    I watched at home with my mom and dad. I was 18.

    Even after such a long time, I still have a Secretariat obsession. The turf writer who called him "the horse that God built" sure got it right.

    After reading the article my hands are shaking so bad it's hard to type.

    Please don't think I equate this with forgetting your child, but I have driven off with the back of the trailer wide open. ...

    You think it's bad now? Just wait until it stops. Those special 5-7 days each month are a walk in the park.

    Just thinking about hot flashes made one start. I have to go stick my head in the...

    I voted racing. I think I read somewhere that if a jockey rides long enough, he or she will get seriously hurt. Not might, will get hurt.

    Having said that, this nearly sixty year old is now...

    I could never give up my wash rack. During the winter I need to use it in the dark, chilly evenings after work to get ready to hunt the next morning. Trying to bathe in even a little cold wind is...

    I vote buffalo too. That'll show them.

    Years ago, I bought an only horse with a goat friend. They were a package deal, had been together for years. When she got around the other horses here,...

    I guess I am one of the few to want go to a grave yard. My mother's family is buried beside a church founded in the mid 1700's. DH and I have plots, and it's a comfort to know that whatever happens...

    In Denny's example, "perfection" is achievable by definition. There are ten points on the table, so it's easy to fall into the "keep trying harder" trap.

    They are moving dirt at a prodigious rate.

    I've not seen it yet myself.

    I learned to knit about 30 years ago, and can't sit still without my current project in my lap!

    I only use crochet for starting or finishing techniques. I'm addicted to cables, and am helpless to...

    Sort of off topic, but just had to share...this winter we got to hunt over a golf course a few times. The course had been heavily damaged last summer by flooding, so it will be redone this summer. ...

    Well Bluey, thank goodness they missed.

    I wish the strident gun proponents would just acknowledge the cost of mishandling/forgetting/using poor judgement when firearms are involved. The huge...

    If you have the sun, and can afford them, knockout roses are great. They come in lots of colors and several different growth habits. They are safe around the horses, and don't require much special...

    I am just short of 5'2":). I ride a 14 hand Connemara/Welsh cross, and a 16.3 Dutch horse.

    The pony has a big step, and the Dutchman is slab sided. It makes them both easy to sit on in their own...

    Another adult on a pony here. I am 5'2" 100 lbs, and foxhunt my 14hh Connemara cross. I am also 59 and paid for her myself.

    My showing days are behind me, but I still take lessons on my little...

    I was taught that a fall is always the rider's fault. Whether it is a mistake in horsemanship, like asking too much too soon from a greenie, or a mistake of equitation - that's you, AliCat! - it's...

    I remember not that long ago lots of people around here hunted their show horses...well, maybe it's been longer than I realize!

    I'm going to be the dissenting voice here. I would absolutely look at this horse, especially if he returned to racing on the bow.

    I hunted and showed an OTTB with an old bow for 19 years, the bow...
