    Actually, in Canada, both the Imprezza and Forester are still offered with manual transmissions (model year 2015).

    I was going to suggest the Imprezza to the OP, although not available in deisel.

    MSM = methylsulfonylmethane. It contains sulfur which can be extremely irritating to the gut.

    It is very possible that the "crazies" you see in some horses might be their reaction to intestinal...

    One of my housecats, a former stray, twice went after dogs being walked on the sidewalk (leashed) in front of my house while I was also outside. She just charged them without provocation and kept...

    This idiot has not killed just one mature male lion but several other lions. In all likelihood, when new males move into the pride's territory, they will kill any cubs and possibly the young male as...

    Of all the tack shops listed so far, Bahr's has the largest selection I'm fairly certain - and even more in their physical store. If you check their website, they have a 1-800 phone number you can...

    I find that when a pump sprayer quits working, it's usually because I haven't used it in a while. If after a few pumps I'm not getting any spray, I just twist the "flow adjuster" down past where you...

    Anything with Lidocaine as an ingredient. It is a topical anesthetic. I've used Solarcaine lotion in the past, but anything that's easy to apply and not really greasy would work. Or a...

    For ease of shipping (less expensive and no duty to worry about), I would give Baker's in Gormley, Ont.: http://www.bakerssaddlery.com/ and Bahr's in Hornby, Ont.: http://www.bahrsaddlery.com/ ...

    Agreed - the reviewer definitely changed the meaning of the sentence, and yes, it could have been better written. (sdlbredfan's suggestions also change the meaning and do not work well as a first...

    Yup! Toronto doesn't usually get a lot of snow, especially when compared to Buffalo! We had the extreme cold this past winter like a lot of eastern N. America but not all that much snow, relatively...

    I am pretty sure they don't. At least I've never heard of it and I've been a member for quite a few years.

    I DO think there's a deal with Ford though where they will give you perhaps $1000. off a...

    The weirdest thing I ever saw at the local Costco was a 7' or 8' high cast iron urn - the kind you'd put on your lawn if you had an actual estate - for about $2000. or so.

    I've been using a forward aid for oh, about 50 years now - as taught by very knowledgeable instructors - and it's always worked quite nicely for me.

    Well, you DO give a forward aid(s) but the horse meets the resistance of your hands and steps backwards, so in essence, it's a forward movement. (Absolutely no rein pulling necessary.)

    And a big "thank you" for your efforts as well as to the OP for the "entertainment"!
