    I had one that when I first started jumping xc I. The field would yank me down to try and grab grass after a jump, just when I was most vulnerable.

    I found by bridging my reins, the reins would...

    I have the grid walls from the organized barn.

    Love the product, hated the customer service.

    Well, today's donkey buying adventure ended after a few hours of trying to load the bugger.

    Back to the drawing board...

    He was pretty ok with being left before, but has regressed to this point. He is so aggressive with the pawing and digging, I'm afraid he'll take out the posts he's tied to, even with a stall mat. ...

    No desire for a 3rd horse here, especially one that isn't mine! There will be occassions where both my horses show or trail ride, and I'd rather have to get two small donkeys ;)

    There are...

    Then when I take two to a show, or two on a trail ride, the companion horse gets left alone? Same problem as I have now....

    I would think if it was a ground covering flowing stride in relation to the horse, and got nice distances, it should be judged as nicely (IMO). You can't make every horse have a 13 foot stride. ...

    It appears I'm going to check out a small standard (by the lady's description) tomorrow. He's been around her care home entertaining the senior citizens, and had her grandkids climb all over him and...
  10. Another "my horse needs a companion" thread...

    I've moved to 5 acres 3 months ago with my two horses. One is a jerk and just bullies the other one, so instead of sharing a paddock they share a fence line. All is good.

    When I take one or the...

    Vet confirmed today that the smell is pretty normal and associated with teething. God, it is AWFUL.

    Her mom was a 40 lb border collie cross, no idea what dad was. Mom was tied to a tree in a junkyard, so Molly is a junkyard mutt. Super easy puppy, very smart.

    Check out hcbc.ca (horse council bc). Will have lists of all competitions and ratings, plus some other useful resources.

    The lower mainland is THE hub, but land is wildly expensive. I moved to...
  14. Puppy losing teeth, gets WICKED breath..

    Just today my 4.5 month old puppy started having foul breath. I find it rather fishy smelling. I've looked at her mouth and can't see anything except two teeth that she must have lost today (one...

    I figure it's the parents job to help the kid through the situation they are putting them in. I think going and giving gum to a strange kid might not be received so well...

    So as long as people who don't like/want kids do it in a way that recognizes the sacrifices and extreme commitment of people who do choose to be parents, it's less offensive? Heaven forbid how...

    Oh I lied, he's got a new name.

    During a jump lesson the little bugger tried to run out. The instructor just started yelling "WHOA WHOA WHOA SAUSAGE!"

    So now we're playing off sausage, and...

    It's vinyl/plastic. Could repaint the whole thing, was thinking we might try to do just the trim/doors/stairs, salvage the ugly off white ;)
  21. What colour to paint, how to beautify this place? (xpost from off topic)

    New acreage this year. House is ugly. Big shop is also ugly. Help?

    Redoing the siding is going to be too much, considering we're likely here for 5-8 years (job posting). I hate the two tone...

  25. What should I do to beautify the ugly house/property? Colour options for paint?

    We bought our acreage and moved in about 3 months ago. The house is horrible two tone off white siding with faded brown trim. The shop is massive and halfway painted the same two colours. The...
