    Has anyone tried these?

    I won't buy Osters. Too much flying hair and those suckers are heavy after a bit. I've never tried the Lister Star clippers. I have the smaller Andis AGC (the maroon ones)...

    Those telling you to go barefoot must have been way more lucky than I can even fathom.

    First off, is your horse sound? Do you have X-rays? If not, get them. Trust me, you will want to see what's...

    It's devastating. They are one hell of a pair and it is obvious Ginny adores Hawley. Obviously something went on behind closed doors to sever the relationship entirely, which means Hawley will have...

    Ask your vet for a bunch of the cheap-o leashes they give to patients...ya know, the rope one piece that slip over the head?

    Walk up to parents of said unruly children, hand them a leash, and...

    Definitely rooting for Farrah (how can you not?!) but also rooting big time for Area VI's Tamie Smith and Twizted Syster!!!

    I recommend doing lunges up and down the barn aisle holding a bucket of grain in each hand.... :D
  7. Thank you for saying it WAY better than I did!...

    Thank you for saying it WAY better than I did! After rereading my OP it sounded like I was wanting to use the lunge or Pessoa as a way to build up fitness. Duh. I swear I have a brain...

    I...

    He was off due to a quarter crack, not an injury. I'm also not looking to lunge him right away, we have plenty of tack walking to do first, then obviously build to trotting under saddle.

    This...
  9. Bringing the Tubby back into shape...lunging question

    We're just at the tack walking phase, but hey...never hurts to think ahead!

    Do you prefer side reins (and what kind) or a Pessoa system when slowly bringing a horse back into work? I have a knock...

    LOL @ Heinz...around our house we call them "puppies" because they consist of 99% German Shepherd hair and 1% Bulldog hair. I vacuum the carpet more than the tile (dummy, should just do it all at...

    Favorite vacuum for hard floors?

    At the moment our house is a combination of tile and carpet. We are planning on ripping out both and going to just plain concrete (after we put stuff to make it pretty on top ;) )

    Our current...

    Thanks all. I'm trying to find one I can borrow before actually buying, especially since we are just tack walking at the moment after having the entire summer off. He goes pretty well in the PC...

    Anatomical girths. Who has 'em?

    I'm intrigued. They were the ONLY type of girths my old trainer (rode UL dressage horses) would use on her horses. For the babies we used the Professional's Choice girths. I'm a huge fan of the PC...

    This.

    I was in a very bad situation once, and as young adult (under 20) I didn't know how to do things. I showed up and loaded as much as I could as fast as I could during a day I knew the BO was...

    I think this is a great idea. That way you can make a plan every single year and it gives both coasts a chance to participate. CHP is still a long haul from some of us in southern CA, but it's a hell...

    For those of you with the HDR, is the crown cut out around the ears? Would anyone mind posting a pic of their HDR on their horse? It looks a bit clunky, but I love the price point. I had an HDR...

    Thanks for the tips!! We're doing some "research" this weekend. :)

    Since the wood isn't the quality I thought it was (doh) should I do a gel stain or paint? That's my biggest hangup at the moment....

    Thanks JanM. I think I'm going to go with the stripe though...it won't be very wide, so easily covered. My cousin has painted stripes in pretty much every one of her homes and hasn't had a problem...

    Wow, I didn't know the vessel sinks were so hated!! Good to know! This is why I'm glad I asked.

    I definitely do NOT want a dark sink top. Ick. Now I'm debating on having a white or off-white...
  20. Bathroom sink/countertops. Updating...need advice

    So we're doing an impromptu mini remodel of our bathroom after discovering a leaky pipe in the wall. :eek:

    The vanity is really nice quality oak, but it has the 80's style high gloss lacquer...

    Do you blog? What site do you use?

    I'm thinking of starting a blog for no other reason than to get back into writing and getting things out of my head. I'm not looking for a site that's super fancy, but I don't want super plain...

    Professional's Choice!!! My guy lives in the no-turns, I just keep them loose and got them a size big and they work great. I run XC in them and haven't had any issues yet.
