    She is adding stalls and putting up lights because they benefit her, not you. You are secondary to improvements in the property. It's a business, she's not your "bud"...do not lend your trailer for...

    Saddle fitters...right up there with animal communicators and magikal crystals...at least in the US. In England, lots of training and actual professionals with a very good website: ...

    Hunters are not stupid, they know they have to have permission to enter land to hunt. If they're next to your property, they should not be releasing their hounds and then claim, "Oh, we have the...

    Of course many Yanks see Britain as "Olde England". Most don't know where Wales or Northern Ireland are (or know it's part of GB vs. Ireland). It was a complaint James May had on "Top Gear"...that...

    SSS...a deserved solution.

    People, in VA, can come on your property to retrieve hounds that have "escaped". If the hounds are harrassing your stock...shoot them, you don't have to put up with...

    Simple....do not ever loan your trailer. The trainer should have a trailer of her own or not sell the one she has. No good deed goes unpunished....do not loan it...ever!

    I don't want to see any money wasted on collegiate sports. It's nothing but the minor leagues for basketball and football (with criminality tossed in for fun). Many of the "sports" are very low...
