    I think so as well.

    The bigger deal (to me) is her living in terror in her crate 23 hours a day. You said that's the plateau she has hit and not moved beyond. I think that quality of life is too...

    Pro didn't allow outside instruction on whose horse? The HO's? One owned by the trainer? The latter I can see. I wouldn't allow a lessee to take a lesson on a horse I owned without knowing what...

    A van full of kittens = snakes on a plane, for sure.

    I don't think it would count as a "vacation" to drive those suckers 1,500 miles, however.

    But if you come, we'll leave the cat food open for...

    Well now the Earth is out of balance. Too many cats in the Midwest, not enough of the PNW. That Maine Coon it over the edge. Hurry with the kitten shipment.

    Just put a lid on the bucket o' cats and ship it to me in Oregon.

    I never find random cats. Weird. But I do have a nice stream of foster cats from my local shelter.

    "We are all adults here" means you MAN UP AND PROTECT THE CAT.

    Being an adult doesn't entitle you to look the other way while someone mistreats an animal. On the contrary, being an adult means...

    Very Kaye Fassett (sp). The pattern is big, so bottoms would be good. You could make some genie pants-- all baggy and split up the side and that would be A-OK.

    I don't think you need to do anything. After all, you aren't currently on the books for any lessons or shows. You simply don't ask for more.

  10. Hoof N Woof paddock boots. Like 'em? Comparisons?

    As the title says, I'm looking for more information about these.

    They look like they are made by the same people who make Tredstep Giotto paddock boots. Is that a good comparison in terms of fit...

    FWIW, I don't think Guilherme is entirely off base about addicts'/alcoholics' need to get more honest than they have been. There's a helluva lot in AA literature and the Steps about this.

    Awesome stories.

    When I was driving across the country (all Beverly Hillbillies style with my 2H doubling as a moving van and my cat riding shot gun), I stopped in Wyoming for fuel. I knew I had...

    I don't see where you got enough information from the OP's post to decide that she's forever unable to deal with this horse.

    Look, OP, biting is an act of aggression, but I see how that can happen...

    You can get regular length Trevira (synthetic string) girths. And I know there are custom girth makers who will produce whatever you want in mohair.

    As I understand it, string girths are the...

    You mean this horse can't canter a lap around your arena?

    I'd guess that's due to lack of balance and education (he's not ahead of your leg or whip on the ground), rather than fitness.

    Either...

    I define hitting rock bottom-- in a useful, "just do it once" way-- is like the most a rubber band will stretch before it bounces back.

    I think a horse spending lots of time lying down, even on a big dose of Previcox is in pain. I'd euthanize that horse if it were mine and the prognosis was poor or the healing to "pasture sound" was...
