John Mellencamp singing "Jackie Brown" in concert. The backing band & stage was very minimal, so it was mostly just him, us, and the song.
This isn't the show I saw, but from the same tour:...
The method in the video works pretty well, but not as effortlessly as it looked for him. I also gave myself a few good smacks on the fingers in the process!
Similar temps here in SK.
Pony gets his warmest blanket (400gm Rambo), and he has an EXCELLENT shelter. It's basically a big square building divided into 4 with 4 pens sticking out. The doors all...
It depends on what you prefer.
I lunge in my open fronts & ankle boots, or in polos. Same with hacking - hack in either. Jump in open fronts & ankle boots.
Been hearing reports that it should get down to -55C tonight with windchill. FUN!
I'll gladly swap with someone for 30F & snowing! :D
I've lived here almost all of my life, so I guess you just get used to it! Lots of layers - bought some mohair insoles for my boots on the weekend that are FANTASTIC. I wouldn't survive in heat - I...
In southern Saskatchewan, it's clear & cold with sundogs in the sky.
-21C without windchill, -33 with. (-5F without, -28F with)
I love a good English Breakfast. Have a nice loose Scottish Breakfast, too.
My favourite is Stash's Christmas Morning. LOVE that one, will need to stock up.
In Canada. They seem to be everywhere up here!
A few things to check into:
- Meals (how many are provided, what other food is available, etc.)
- Nursing care (Who is available at what times - some homes have a nurse during the day and care...
No. I was raised Catholic (baptised, had my first communion at 10 because my parents put it off, and never confirmed), and attended Catholic school for 8 years.
That more than anything turned me...
Mine is boarded. He lives out 24/7, but has a building with 4 walls (like a big open barn, honestly) that he can go in. It's split in the middle so shared by 4 paddocks - it's toasty in there when...
Current horse would be just fine. Other people/friends have gotten on him before, and he's great for all of them.
Old horse? ...he was a different sort of ride. Most people hated riding him...
Haven't read the whole thread, but when I was shopping this spring I looked at a bunch and tried 2.
1st one: LOVED him. Gorgeous mover, pretty jumper, and I was all set to write the cheque right...
Boysenberry is gorgeous! A dark wine/deep purple type of colour. Looks very sharp with black.
I had some cotton low rise ones, cheap cheap cheap to buy.
I think they lasted me 6 years or something ridiculous like that. I finally threw them away because the fabric was thinning in places...
16.3 average TB gelding - 80"/81" in most brands, 78" Rambo
15.1 wide Morgan gelding - 78" in most, 75" Rambo
16.3 TB gelding wears a 54" now that he's put on some weight, and was a 52" all summer.
15.1 Morgan gelding wore a 48" in the summer and a 50" in the winter.
My TB gelding needs to build some muscle & strength in his back end. I've looked around for suggestions, and see a lot of hillwork - which makes perfect sense, except that there aren't...
I have high withers, long withers, and dips behind them. An Equipe Grand Prix works for us. Albion was a good fit, too.
Another vote for Bossy Bibs to help prevent rubs. They work like a charm, hold up well, and are a breeze to wash.
This. I'm guilty of always putting it off, finally clipping in February or March, and kicking myself for not doing it in November (even if I had to do it again).
My old gelding (20 year old...
Indoor horses get blankets on in AM and off when the come in at night included in board.
They don't blanket pasture horses - not an option. I'm in SK, Canada - long, cold winters.
Mine is shoulder length, but tight almost corkscrew curls. Always dry. Struggle with frizz.
I swear by not using shampoo, or using it very rarely. I use Suave (cheap) conditioner as a "shampoo",...
