    Open staircases and dogs?

    To make a long story short, we are considering a move to a (beautifully redone, historic) town home with 3 levels - which includes an open staircase connecting each floor. All hardwood floors and...

    As a military spouse, the short answer is: no, you cannot actually trust your movers to move anything. And for those suggesting you pack it yourself: depending on the moving company, they may or may...

    Having an awesome trainer can really help speed things along/get you pointed in the right direction. My trainer helped me find two horses (one at a time) and in both cases it was only a matter of...

    Artist/graphic designer here too... nice job! I think that if you look back and forth between the source and the drawing, you can clearly see that the proportions are not realistic. (The jump, for...

    I use nicknames - usually super heroes or holidays related to the colors of the fences. I sort of have to keep chanting them to myself until even when I go "omg, where do I go???"... I can still...

    We are not eventers, but my mare generally does the relaxed ear thing. It's just her expression. I like to say that the ears (hers are.... generous) help generate lift when held out to the side. She...

    Personally, I like to pantomime jumping a 5' oxer when trotting over crossrails. My poor trainer is a very good sport about my antics!

    I have been thrilled with my current barn and previous barn (lucky me!) but based on past experiences....

    DON'T gossip about other boarders/riders with me. It might be meant as friendly chitchat...

    My horse is my favorite person, so as long as she's there I don't really need anyone else. I like most of the people at my barn (although most of them are much younger; they are serious riders and...

    We move all the time. Finnegan has moved from MD - TX, TX - VA, VA - MO, and MO to VA again. He's an awesome cat and as long as he's comfortable, doesn't get too stressed. (If he is cold or hungry,...

    I 'adopted' a Craigslist dog five years ago. We are a military family and many rescues won't work with us, so when I was looking for a dog to keep me company during DH's first deployment I started...

    I love those who carry on with Midol and true grit. :lol: I would have LOVED it if that had been an option - maybe on day 5, 6, or 7. But before that? No way.

    I had endo. After years of toughing...

    I realize the thread has gone off on some interesting tangents, but to revisit the OP....

    How do you feel about people who spend thousands of dollars on purebred dogs when there are shelter dogs...
  18. In my experience.... nope. What kind of goat?

    In my experience.... nope.

    What kind of goat?

    Our Airedale was much darker on the legs/face at that age. A white patch on the chest is not uncommon for 'dales, but not one that size, and the white foot would have to come from somewhere else...

    If you don't want anyone to ride your horse,...

    If you don't want anyone to ride your horse, that's your decision and it doesn't matter why you feel that way. As many others have said, your horse - your decision.

    With my last OTTB, I did let my...

    I have attended only a few clinics with Mr. Fargis and even in that short amount of time, he imparted some wisdom that I reflect on almost every ride. Truly one of the greats. Thank you!

    I get terribly nervous, have spent many sleepless nights before shows! The things that help me.... Not trying to pretend I'm not afraid - I tell my trainer how I feel and we can talk about it, make a...

    This could go either really well or really badly, but maybe try posting on Craigslist that you're looking for riding time and willing to help with chores in exchange? We moved to a not-very-horsey...

    Our barn is all jumpers and we love Pink Equine for bridles, martingales, and boots. Tons of cool options and reasonably priced for the quality. They are cost effective enough to have more than one...

    I don't have a problem going by myself, but I took my trainer anyway. She's awesome, her prices are reasonable, and I value her opinion. I hesitate to take a 'friend' because I don't want someone...
