    The pin firing was probably done as a "treatment" for bucked shins.

    It you are going to show, be sure to check the rules about how to hold the reins. I believe in aqua, etc., you can't have a finger between the reins --- but that may have changed since I last showed...

    Invisible fence does not have to be buried so it can be installed in no time. I have a dog who will chase rabbits, squirrels, etc. and hops right over the fence when the mood strikes him. The wire...

    Beautiful horse, but how in the world do you get on him? An extension ladder? A cherry picker? The world's tallest mounting block?

    I have Aussies. They need training and a job, but you are obviously going to do that. Border collies are harder to "turn off" than Aussies. In general, Border Collies are a more intense dog. Both are...

    Letting them go together is the kindest thing you can do for them. They are old, in pain, and won't get better. It is the best thing for them.

    I knew one, a Standardbred. Owner spoiled him terribly, thought it was cute when he reared and kicked, and refused to have him welded. Fast forward to trainer working with the horse, and horse was a...

    Not enough. What everyone else has said. You need to sit down with the trainer and go over that bill line by line and know what you need to be credited for and so that trainer knows you are serious....

    Personally, I think a well done mud knot/braid would look great if the horse has a nice butt. But I know nothing about the rules of what you can or can't do.

    I don't know if it protects them, but I don't think so. I trim huge amounts of hair from my gang's feet. Of course, there are all over-producers of hair...

    As tall as hubby is, you should be looking for a 16" or 17" saddle --- the seat size has a lot to do with upper leg length. Avoid equitation-style saddles --- they are not comfortable for men! And...

    I never wanted a long haired dog because of the shedding. So of course, I have 3 long haired dogs --- a Collie and 2 Aussies. Wouldn't trade them for the world!
