    After reading the OP I was thinking "good luck that's totally weird" and now I'm wondering why my cats are so boring! I'm a little bit tempted to go by some olives and new carpeting.

    I've got 3 right now.


    Between the three litter boxes I normally have 2-3 poops and 5-6 pees between all three cats. I clean boxes daily so this is a very consistent number for the household.

    Thanks for the side by side pictures. It is helpful to see the differences in stitching, leather thickness, etc.

    TackShack caught my eyes the most.

    My baker sheet rubbed the heck out of my mare. It did hold its resale value beautifully and I hope the next owner found it to be a better fit. I love the iconic print but I don't see myself buying...

    Is your trainer around while you are riding outside of lessons? Every barn is different but many trainers don't mind giving 2-3 minutes of their time. If the problem disappears during lessons there...

    What does your vet say? Have you asked for them to help you go through a BCS and accurately assess your horse, not just a "is he fat?" question?

    I would die of happiness if my hubby decided he wanted to ride. If he wanted to ride and was interested in helping with day to day care that would be a jackpot scenario.

    Following.


    Without a horse I have found that options can be a bit limited. David Donnelly (sp?) has a quarter horse that he teaches dressage on. He also has a PSG schoolmaster but I believe he...

    School show? I literally wouldn't give it a second thought.

    I distinctly recall at least 3 horses at USDF Nationals who were unclipped. I think anyone who takes issue with an unclipped horse in a...

    That looks like the head tossing that probably feels really dramatic from the tack but isn't that bad from the ground. Her tossing seems to be a mixture of lifting her head to neigh, sporadic...

    Would anyone mind sharing the general price point for a Jacks? Thinking it might be a nice present for my sister's mare but she is still growing so perhaps it may be a better investment down the road.

    Unless a horse is kicking out or genuinely bolting, I think it is really hard to be too sensitive to the leg. Having a horse that jumps into the next gait with the whisper of a leg is the ultimate...

    Beautiful photographs! I am blown away by most of the dark and cramped photos I see listed. A buyer wants to see a bright, neutral, and uncluttered space so they can envision their things in the home.

    I pulled up a conversion calculator so it went fairly quickly. I referenced my now passed mare since the cause of her passing was not age related. I hope the information is helpful.

    It is always easier to sit behind a keyboard and say "I wouldn't pay that" than to actually handle it in person when you may be stuck at the barn.

    A few weeks ago I went to USDF finals as a groom and bought a pair of $500 patent leather super "trendy" tall boots. Feel free to judge me.
