    Hey, I totally referenced both a horse related documentary AND a relative having been in the cavalry, that totally counts. ;)

    As I said, my PT spent a while working with me because I DID have an area that needed to be stretched. The issue with hyper mobility is that as you point out, the extra stretchy bits compensate and...

    Good point. Plus as much as they try to automate things in clothing production factories, there are still humans doing stuff, and often different people will be on the lines for the different colors....

    Yes, make sure you have a good talk with your instructor about what your limitations are or might be, and what your goals are, etc. For example, if I had a longer lesson scheduled, I strongly...

    Does your trainer know about this aspect of things, that your husband isn't entirely on board? I don't mean in an airing all your dirty laundry to her way, but if having to investigate or manage a...

    I usually find I feel better after riding, but I haven't been doing any riding seriously lately so I don't know how a very active lesson would hit me. I do find that my lower back REALLY likes riding...

    There really is nothing that can be as helpful for bra shopping as an experienced and properly educated bra fitter who has a decent inventory to pull from. Alas, such folks are often few and far...

    Yes, exactly. That's why I say start at about your actual measurement and go up or down as needed - I also know women who aren't really bony, but just can't tolerate the snugness of what I would...

    I should add something about bra shopping - when you are talking about getting good support, even if you are smaller breasted, getting the right size is CRITICAL. And unfortunately many many bra...

    I really like the Panache sports bra, but I'm a larger cup size.

    I dunno about statues, but there's a documentary about the horses at Gettysburg that is apparently quite good. (But also hard for me to watch because so many died.)

    As far as shifting values - one...

    I have to disagree slightly, in that I think it depends a bit on what you expect for "vets clean" and your budget and the age range you are looking at. An older horse with some arthritic changes may...

    Man, I feel like such a meanie now. Last year I went to a camp with trail horses with my housemates, and housemate's kiddo was given a free bag of horse treats by the tack shop lady when they went to...

    I'd say it depends a lot on the situation and the person. At a show with a lot of other people around and none of your animals due to stay where the abuser can get at them? Sure. At a stable when...

    If one of the benefits is getting to skip a vet check and run down your horse, perhaps we should add a vet check at the end of things somehow. So, you know, people can't essentially abuse their...

    Right. My general attitude in emergency situations (which is how I think I would categorize seeing abuse happening right in front of me in that moment) is to follow the principle I heard from my...

    Yes, this. It's what I call the Dog Voice Of God and works pretty impressively on people, too. Generally it's enough to get them to pause unconsciously for a moment in whatever they're doing, which...

    I'm not sure if in the moment I'd feel safe confronting - it'd depend a lot. I have no experience with physical fights, so I would very much not want to end up in that sort of situation because I'd...

    Chromies are impressively nuts. I ran across some this morning not on the BCH page and :eek: - He'd be happier in his stall at the track in CA, they're taking horrible care of him because he has a...

    Hey, I'm not holding out for the FIRST son. Maybe the first year foal crop, if one turns out to be horrible at racing. ;) (Some OTTBs really are just that mellow. I'm not counting on it, though....

    Put the fluffy side of the velcro on the pad so it's less likely to collect stuff (as opposed to the 'hook' side of the velcro) when not covered. If you used white on a white pad and just used little...
