    Bad plan- in addition to the above, which is dead on, the creosote will line your flue, and create a possible fire hazard.

    Oldernewbie....

    I think that the top one is Nocturne- it just looks like all of the pix I have seen of him. I remember In Command being backed up a bit more in the bridle. The bottom one is...

    I have a friend who is an emergency room nurse. I have one word that strikes fear into the four hour woody- ICE!! Yes, they literally ice it down.

    Can someone please explain to me how having the guy take Cialis, and then putting he and the object of his affection in separate cast iron clawfooted tubs has a **happy ending**. I am obviously...

    Jeannie- no, it wasn't Wing and PC, and I'm sorry, but as I wasn't **in the barn**, and it is therefore hearsay, I will leave it as it stands.

    Just an observation- In Command would have seriously predated those programs. And of course, all of his great breeding sons would have been accepted in that time frame, without question, and with the...

    I saw In Command and Nocturne, too!! I have to say that while Nocturne was very much in the mold of the older style Morgans, I did think that In Command was a much, much different type. Having said...

    If the horse community is going to attempt to do anything, they need to lawyer up, as a group, if they haven't already, and file an appeal within 30 days of the decision. I have no idea how...

    I have been on both sides of this, since I used to work in Real Estate Development. I have to say that it was truly disturbing to me to watch over and over again just how some of these **empowered...

    There is a sad irony in the fact that Cigar's dam sire, Seattle Slew, also had arthritic issues in his neck, requiring two surgeries that I believe were successful. So sad that his grandson suffered...

    This is just so very sad. I was honored to see Cigar numbers times at KHP over the years. What a gorgeous piece of horse flesh he was!! It is just a tragic end to a wonderful life. Godspeed big horse!

    I have been a member of my breed organization for a long while. I am seriously interested in how different breed organizations actually function. Do you find them to be transparent? Do you find that...

    Thanks so much for your reply, CA. I found it hard to believe that someone didn't know about this guy, if he had caused enough pain to require censure.

    I am deeply sorry for the loss of those...

    I do not know if you can wash the blankets with detergent, and have them stay proofed. I generally wash mine in water, only, and just do an extra rinse if they are nasty- and it seems to work. I...

    I'm guessing not that many folks have tried it. I've done Nikwax, and all of the other stuff, and this beats them all, hands down. Kept my blankets proofed all last winter, without one fail. And it...

    The highest end dressage barns in this area, with training, are on par with the higher end ASB show barns in KY. And, you do not see travel trailers at L'ville. Just sayin'. Not with the competitors,...

    No idea what prices are in your area, but in this area- which is HUGE for hunters/jumpers, as well as dressage, your numbers would be way high for the entry level experience I described.

    PSA- Rustoelum Neverwet is FABULOUS!!

    To be fair, the trainers are simply trying to make a living. However, the reality is that at any show, if you are showing in the ASB world, and you want to put someone in the ring in a regular...
