    They don't have to - we're talking jumpers in this thread. No one cares how many strides you put anywhere on course. You just have to leave all the rails up and be fastest to win.

    I watched the livestream from Harrisburg of the fox hunter class the other night. Most of those horses looked like they would have been much more comfortable if someone had taught their riders to...

    The laser thing would only work if there is one single surface, in one single location, on which every single pony that is registered would be measured. There is no way to completely control the...

    Vaccines are so effective that parents today have no idea how horribly devastating these diseases really are. Polio? Smallpox? What are you talking about? There's no such thing!



    Yes.

    No one has ever recommended vaccinating infants against Hep B because it can be transmitted through sex. Please.

    The reason the vaccine is recommended for infants is that it can be transmitted...

    Sorry, I wasn't clear in my post. Your daughter was appropriately treated for scarlet fever (and strep, both of which are bacterial infections and SHOULD be treated with antibiotics). I did...

    And what I am suggesting is that the OP does NOT share information with him that they would not want to be shared. When I said "can't you just give a high level, short and sweet sentence that they...

    You are in a hard position. But it doesn't have to be impossible. I have been in a sort of similar position for 25 years. I have not seen or spoken to my younger brother in that long. My mother, to...

    I really don't mean to make fun of you, but how many pounds of pecans do you need to make a pie that you can't justify the cost for your SO as an anniversary gift? I'm thinking maybe he just doesn't...

    Admittedly, I haven't been to a Walmart in at least 5 years. I was in a Target within the last two years though. Does that count?

    I do go to Walgreen's, CVS, and the grocery store on a regular...

    He won the consolation round last year. But I get that it's much more fun for most here to exaggerate and create drama rather than be accurate.

    He was a regular in the derbies for years, often with more than one entry.

    Does he even have a derby-appropriate horse right now? He seems to have mostly green ones at the moment.
