    I was talking about measuring a sample of horses and ponies for the purposes of collecting "normal" height variation data to be used to set the standards for how accurately a pony has to measure...

    I agree, helmet stays put, you put a hand on your heart or at least look respectful (if it isn't your country or whatever - it's still rude to fuss and talk.) If you do have to keep working (because...

    That's my guess. Something like all sheepskin type things get referred to as a numnah, and it goes from there. I only thought it referred to saddle pads (shaped) when I lived in the UK near London.

    Depends all on how you define the terms and requirements. As long as they are the same for everyone, it shouldn't matter if some ponies are what another discipline would call a horse by half an inch....

    Well, like I said, I only mention it unsolicited if I legitimately think the person doesn't realize. (Newbie at a trail place, I will point out where the helmets are, for example. Or mention if...

    Try a different deodorant? I think some are more prone to leaving the yellowing stains than others.

    I also use a scoop of oxygen bleach like oxyclean in with most of my stuff as a matter of habit....

    If a hoof/post/whatever dents your skull, the important bit that is going to get hurt is your brain. Thus, TBI discussion is entirely relevant even if you do want to run with the idea that helmets...

    Dogs and horses are way better than most people. :)
