    I echo Ammy's gut feeling. When writing your book, just take care to keep things in perspective when it comes to heroism--soldiers and cops and firefighters risking their lives to serve us; the...

    Yeah, missed it at Boston by 1:54. That was my 1st Boston and I really want to try that course again. I killed the Newton hills, but then the heat killed me. :lol:

    If you haven't found someplace by Aug 1 and you need another couple of weeks, could the BO put a roundbale in the field and just leave them turned out? At last you'd have assurance that they always...

    Thanks cranston, I'll check out that link. Wow-- 29 FM's in the bag? You are a machine. Good luck on #30! Which one?
    Likely cause: I just missed BQing in April, and in response I dove right back...

    hay, tractor parts, cheap horses, and..... a bridge?
    Anyone need a 92-ft long bridge? Delivery available at extra charge. :lol:

    CrowneDragon, just to clarify, I don't have a horse with ERU-- I was asking in a purely hypothetical sense-- what would one do as the owner since it seems clear this horse is not marketable. It's...

    Just noticed my typo in the title, which is cracking me up. If 1) I were a mom and 2) was into writing blogs, "Mommograms" would be a good title for it :lol:

    Mommograms suck

    Have my 6mo checkup tomorrow. I'm on 6mo schedule after finding atypical cells-- not cancer but a "marker" that needs watching. I know it'll all be fine, but still feeling grouchy at the moment...

    My name is Erin, and among one circle of friends in HS I was Heroin (absolutely NO connection to the drug!!!). It was generally shortened to "Her." My best friend's last name was Tappen, and she...

    I haven't experienced any horses with this condition 1st hand. For those of you who have: if you were this horse's current owner, what would you do with him? . What's the tipping point for...

    I second the recommendation to look at Buck Brannaman to see a more sensible application of that genre of training techniques (sans the cult-like trappings and incessant product placement. The...

    And, OP, it goes without saying, but getting back in shape will help your riding tremendously and make it more fun. Just the riding will not get you there; I guarantee you are not riding enough hours...

    How fun. I wouldn't worry too much about Patsy. When a turkey is flushed out, they take wing with such explosive, loud wingbeats that Patsy will probably be more scared of them than the other way...

    Good luck OP, and hope you find the perfect mount. You'll hear a lot of cautions from folks on COTH because over the years, all of us have seen new horse owners buy a horse that's too much for them...

    The post about new arrivals hating the farm smells but protesting any change to "their" viewshed rings very true. Totally agree that farming ops need to be protected. Or rather, that people are...

    I would not put much stock in B's owners telling you that he doesn't act like that with anyone else. a) it doesn't matter and b) may not be true.

    That's too bad, but still I'm so relieved she's with someone who will do the right thing by her. Happytalk, if the Good Samaritan would like help with the cost I could send a bit. Or if not, maybe...

    I vote for Option #3 - find childcare options and get a job off-farm. Let the barn be your hobby for your horses. I don't remember when you took the plunge to be a boarding barn but it was less than...
