    Their Whitefish and Potato dog food is the only food I've found that doesn't make my dog gassy. I spent a lot of time comparing quality and price of dog foods before settling on Fromm--after deciding...

    The last photo looks like what my horse had on her flank! It's pretty dried up and white looking now, but was scabby and kind of oozy and swollen. I figured she rolled on a rough spot or something...

    I believe my Nunn Finer girth is poufy enough that the billets stand away from the skin (bridging the gap.)

    The temperature for no coats is 85 degrees.

    Where were you and yellowbritches when I started a thread a couple months ago asking about the no coats rule in dressage? No one (except Janet) knew...

    The liner can stay attached, but since it's only attached at a few points, I prefer to separate the layers to put them back on the horse. I usually only attach them at the tail end--you can use them...

    The rules say field and jodhpur boots are allowed. Nowhere does it say dress boots are allowed. I approached Malcolm Hook about this years ago and they still have never added dress boots as allowed. ...

    I think what sane people do is make a rail of the arena removable for using the bank jump. Just as x-country jumps built into a fence line usually have a removable rail above them.

    Shuck Fence gave me a quote that is about $10/ft for some small paddocks, 720 feet of fence but I don't recall the exact $ amount.

    I recently got stepped on (not stomped) and I was mostly healed in a week. The first night my foot was very swollen and stiff and it was really hard to walk. Each day after it got better.

    Great topic! I had some markers placed on my property line last year (metal rods) when I had it surveyed because there are brush and trees in the way of going between markers. Now I can't find one of...

    Especially the TD!

    My pet peeve too! When the rules state that the optimum time must be on the course map. Why will TD's not enforce this? I checked the rules after someone in the secretary's...

    Sizing of fly masks

    I've only ever bought horse size Farnam fly masks. Not quite big enough for my Cleveland Bay x TB who cut herself above her eye, I could just get the velcro to barely overlap. I made an extension...

    I saw at least two places selling this while searching the 4th of July sales. I know sstack.com, VTO and BoB were some of the places I looked, imagine at least one of them had it.

    I have the Tory ones. They are NOT what I consider "plaited" and if you enlarge the photo in the link you can probably see what I mean. They don't have the grip of regular plaited rein, they are...

    I feel you. My contractor allegedly put 2" of sand in my arena...so why are there 4" deep hoofprints and why is it so hard to walk in there? I told him it was too deep, he allegedly took some out. ...

    If you have other horses to donate some tail hair, you could braid some into what's left on your horse. I did this on a horse whose tail was maliciously cut off...of course he had the only white tail...

    I couldn't believe this was a question; why would they NOT wear helmets in a race where they're more likely to get run over by another horse if they fall?

    But in case I was wrong, I googled. I...

    I just got lights in my indoor. When I was looking, it seems they stopped making high output T8's, so HO T5's it was. In Indiana, I assume you would like lights to work when it's < 20 degrees out.
