    When I did it back in the day in Virginia, I used hot dogs, and per the vets, .2cc of Ivomeck in the hot dog, two week intervals. Mange is caused by mites, and fundamentally causes death by exposure....

    Oh yeah, a couple of times while pair racing come to mind. In my experience, regardless of speed, if I have time to cuss on the way down, I'll be fine.

    I can think of over a dozen that are fully assembled. Not to mention parts that 'could' be assembled, and probably 30-something bits not attached to what is assembled.

    Sandwich type is really limited to the show ring these days I think, but stems from practicality- you wouldn't want to eat a mayo laden sandwich 6 hours later, generally. Actually when I started...

    You can always teach a horse new tricks, I had a mare that started foxhunting at 26, packing my 4 yo son. I like katyb's definition. I suppose I would add not just do what I want, etc, but do that...

    The sale of boots and wraps over the last couple of decades is in my opinion a great example of convincing the masses they need something, when more often than not they don't. I only use boots if...

    Ruth Ginsburg is Supreme Court. Douglas Ginsburg, no relation is Court of Appeals.

    Dan Quayle served in the House and his wife hunted with Casanova. What about Eugene McCarthy when he was in Congress, I know he car followed with Rappahannock in his later life. I'm sure there are...

    Oh, don't get me started. Yes there is a thread from probably 10 years ago. I encountered a pair of endurance riders with a horse running loose while riding a green horse and packing the veteran-...

    I booked Ant's Lodges in S. Africa through In The Saddle, most excellent. I was aiming for one of their connections in Botswana, but Ant's is able to accommodate slow, non-horsey riders like my...

    I've hunted with Middleburg but with maybe only 60 out. Most I've encountered was 105 one day at Orange County, 1990ish.

    True, but the original Stephens loss was bringing horse out of barn, taking it to a fence line and butchering and passing over fence if I understood the accounts correctly. And the examples I gave...

    I have in fact butchered a horse or two to feed to foxhounds. For that purpose you don't have to do the fine tuning of carving out the desired cuts of meat, but you could, if you have the manpower...

    Right, out of Chattanooga, also known as Red Ranger saddles, out of business since the 70s I think. I never sat in one but heard good things about them.

    Years ago, when my tb lost an eye, he became very one-sided since he naturally tended to move to the sighted side (right). It got to the point that his musculature was uneven and he began...

    Ah, yes, I learned by doing in the 60s that 'loping them down' (or longeing them down) gives you a very fit horse who then takes longer to 'lope down.'
