    I think it's originally a British thing. The jockeys have all been riding with their helmet covers like that for years and years, so now the eventers too, really nothing new. I personally have...

    Darwinism and selection of the fittest at its finest.

    Should be called "culling of the herd," and I'm not talking about the hogs here.

    I'm going to take a wild guess and say this was never a formal necropsy, per se. I'll bet they examined him in the field after euthanasia, cut him open, examined a few organs, made a few...

    I'm with everyone who is thinking where is that nasty pinto draft horse when we need him the most?

    I wonder if the horse he was riding was "Nancy," one of his favorites.

    A gazillion years ago when I was a kid I rode at a place in Malibu where "Nancy," then a dark dappled gray mare, was in...

    I would think that an injured animal (bear) in a suburban area that is forced to use refuse and garbage for food is going to become a huge potential risk to everyone. I read the refuge's Facebook...

    Actually, there are probably some nurse mare facilities right there in Ocala with some spare foals. Much closer than Ohio.

    Granted that probably everybody had some degree of fault. My question is, why on earth would anybody post something like this at all and think it was funny? I would expect to hear a scream from a...

    Couldn't he just be lonely? Maybe most people sort of dismiss him or ignore him.

    Since she was using a jump saddle, it looked to me like she was riding a semi 2-point at the canter, nothing radical, occasionally sitting for a stride or two. Good experience for any horse,...

    The trouble with sterling silver is that you are never going to get much by selling it--or at least compared to the retail price. There are a few dealers who will buy it on line (non-scrap) and it...

    They ran a clip of that on GMA this morning. Hope that the animal control people get a plan together to trap this bear. It's plain cruel to let it continue along as it is, even though euthing it is...

    Watched the first episode and then bit the bullet. Got 6 months of Starz for $10/month. I think it is going to be really good. I think they got it right on with Claire and the others. Looking...

    For all of you who get Starz, please keep the rest of us in the mix and let us know how the series goes episode by episode. Just have to wait for the DVD, I guess.

    I would imagine that they would say he was old.

    I wonder if they cut out some of the supplementary feeding they had been doing once the sheriff's dept and SPCA cleared them in the investigation....

    It makes me wonder how Snickers and Willie are doing these days. I stopped following at ABR and I think that maybe Dawn was banned there anyway.

    Sounds like they are planning on throwing the...

    I think flowers at the stall would be much appreciated by the owner.

    Bingo! I was just thinking about her when someone was asking about the Billings horse auction. Did not contribute to any of her fiascos, but remember following them quite closely. She also wound...

    There are various books available that give retail values for coins. Of course, if you are selling, any dealer will want to pay wholesale prices. A lot depends on their condition, which can range...

    But there was one hog that inadvertently was killed and the reaction was so over the top that this one didn't "count" in their tally, that I had the impression that they had to produce live hogs to...

    Caught one of these "reality shows" a while back (and didn't watch very long either) about hog chasers/hunters. They were catching--or trying to catch--hogs, tying them up and hauling them off...
