    2. Is it the heel bulb? No idea. If it doesn't resolve in a few days, call the vet.

    My young draft cross, who lived in PA at least two years before I bought him last spring, didn't get much of a coat last winter - he had been well blanketed the year before at his previous barn. My...

    My big horse goes in a loose ring French link - never had a pinching problem (think this maybe a fitting issue). Although he is huge he much prefers a narrow bit (huge tongue...). I ride him in a...

    Well, I agree with you -- I definitely pay attention to the course designer. The event I mentioned was one I boycotted for several years as the CD in both xc and SJ was just awful.

    I have a new crush, Sparrow's Nio. Watched him through the second *** water and she gave him a lovely quiet ride, time to see what he was doing. He looked for it, saw it, and jumped through neat as a...

    I honestly think this would be easier to have a discussion about if the stated intents made more sense.
