Having a "favorite" and showing "favoritism" are two different things.
You should not feel guilty about having a favorite, but showing favoritism outwardly is probably not great for the dynamics...
THIS! He HIT her!!!
I'm sorry to be harsh but this is unacceptable behavior from an adult whatever provoked it. For the record I am a "strict" parent not some namby-pamby "oh snookums everything...
Ditto I will add - remember your baby has never had another mother.
He/she will not know if what you do is "wrong", your way whatever it turns out to be will be "right".
Thank you so much!
That was probably the most helpful thing I have watched in years! WOW!
I couldn't agree more.
Question: I use Safari on my MAC. Where is the "zoom" button everyone is talking about? What does it look like?
So there is a list of "horse related" RSS feeds on the right hand side below the ads.
What is an RSS feed?
How does it work?
If I click on those links where are they taking me and how does the...
Hate the narrow format. :mad:
Miss the old banner.
Somehow the whole look of the new boards is "cheaper" as if instead of spending money for an upgrade you bought a downgrade. :confused:
I am going to echo a previous poster's recommendation to please research the lines very carefully for temperament.
The King of Diamonds horse in our barn is an athlete and a saint. Truly. He can...
I'm with J Swan on this one too.
My horse is a 19 year old super duper fit sound fox hunter.
If I get off after anything less than an hour of riding (which I often do) he always give me a look...
Yup. My cairn terrier puppy did this too.
She lived to a ripe old age of 14 with no ill effects :)
The very first thread I ever read on COTH was one of yours about your adventures with Gwen.
What a wonderful wonderful horse. I will remember her always.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
I'm sorry for your loss.
I've suffered some huge life changes. There have been times when I just couldn't ride and those periods lasted for months (2-4 months) sometimes. I had one trainer who...
One horse I used to compete was in her 20s and an ex level 7 jumper who just loved going cross country, fox hunting, etc -- dressage not so much.
She was perfectly capable of putting in a...
My cairn terrier was diagnosed with diabetes at age 2.
I gave her insulin shots twice a day until she died of old age at 14!
Count them - 12 years of twice daily shots!
She was happy, feisty,...
I'm confused, is this rule change coming about because of the one story mentioned a few posts earlier?
There is always some rider somewhere that will do something stupid.
Haven't we established...
I'm an ammy who learned as an adult and am in my early 40s.
I'm very brave, and have good feel but am older and can be stiff.
This is what I can do on my horse:
I can hack out alone.
So those of you who follow the pedigree side of things, what do you think about his heritage? I'm curious ...
Just wanted to mention that I am another rider who likes small horses, mares and TBs. I actually actively sought out those horses when I was looking. I love a good mare. I actually just love a "good"...
I think it depends on the couple.
I personally agree with you. My soon to be ex-husband did not.
He really wanted some one whose passions were the same as his (fishing). He was jealous of the...
This thread made me smile :)
I'm on total financial lockdown.
It is one of the few issues I really miss!!
One thing to keep in mind is that there is a HUGE variety of ISH.
I ride at a barn filled with them and they are all different. Big, little, fast, slow, heavy , light, lazy, go getters ...etc
I knew some people would get a kick out of that story. :lol:
Big upside to the mess of divorce is that I have enough funny stories to get me through the rest of my life.
Here are some other...
I'll tell a really honest story about my marriage. Maybe it will make you feel better, at the very least it might make you laugh.
My husband was supposedly "very supportive" of my horse habit. He...
I'm embarrassed to write this because I know I will sound like a total fruit loop.
There is an older alpha ex level 7 jumper mare I ride sometimes. She isn't my horse. She is a phenomenal animal....
If your husband had communicated properly about his resentment over the cost of the horses it probably would have been a solvable issue.
I'm going through the worst divorce imaginable...
