    My paint turned 19 in April and has clocked around in the .85 jumpers this year like a champ. We do maintenance (hocks and chiro, previcox) and he's kept in shape with lots of accurate flat work and...
  2. Proper way to introduce new kitten to current "pride"?

    I have four cats-- all fixed, ages 17, 13, 6 and 4. Oldest two are girls, who keep to themselves. Other two are boys, besties who recently lost their other boy buddy. We were offered a 9 week old...

    Several folks did around here in the 80s and 90s but the rise of the SUV has killed the full size van as anything but a work vehicle. I wonder about the Mercedes or Sprinter style vans-- those look...

    It is unusual for a rabbit to build a nest in a building... and the net chewing and blanket destruction is absolutely NOT wild rabbit behavior at all. We have rabbits all over our yard and fields...

    They run very big, are super stretchy, fabric pills and the full seat stitching puckers so the butt is wavy. Not impressed. And these are the new ones.

    You should start by seeing what the codes are for your county or city regarding horses and housing them. Your main concerns would be odor, humidity (amazing how much heat and moisture a horse...

    Stihl. Seriously, just buy the professional grade gas model with the bike handlebars. You will not regret it. We have the plastic "blades" instead of string, as well as the metal blade head. ...

    I think it's not so much retirement of the horse as retirement of our hopes, dreams and plans with that horse. We are reminded daily, as they eat and play in the pasture, of all the things we wanted...

    On an odd side note, we just found a dead rabbit caught in our no-climb fencing. :no: It apparently tried to get squeeze through it, but her pelvis couldn't fit and she died. Slowly and not well....

    I don't understand what you are asking advice on? Do you want to know how to find out about a jumper's past show record? Is it well known on a circuit and you just need PMs to tell you about...

    I didn't talk about cost of living. As Rook said, the housing market here is pretty wild right now--Portland in particular is hard to buy into as the prices are HIGH for everything. There is a...

    You might do a search, as there have been a few recent threads on this subject/area.

    Pirate- PNW, AA rated shows, and Thermal, yes conformation and several other divisions. I'll trust MRoades' eminent opinion and experience on this matter. Tails are not actually part of a horse's...

    I guess the horse who won everything in our zone with no tail at all, no hair, bribed the judges. :cool: OP- yes it is part of traditional hunter turn out. Done right it'll be fine.

    It's so the eventers and jumper riders look better by comparison!

    My SIL has a 80x150 outdoor and it's fine for jumping up thru 3'6" if you get creative and don't expect long, flowy hunter courses. I've ridden and jumped in a 60x150...and that gets tight, but...

    Ok. I will check which fly sheets are in Big Brown Horse's lovingly packed by his owner trunk. Pretty sure I have a bug buster one, too. Today begins the "I will protect you, BBH!" campaign. Fly...

    My location means most days are not hot...we get a few 90+ days a year, but mostly we are 70s, rainy/misty/damp with afternoon clearing. Due to my work schedule, I stall at night (8pm at this time...

    I board two delightful retired geldings--a real Mutt and Jeff pair of BFFs. However, one HATES bugs. Any bug, any time. His daily conversation with me goes like this:

    "Hey, Lady! It's time to go...

    Another PNW horse person here-- do not use wood products, please! Do use geotextile cloth. If your paddock has a slope away from the stall, then this summer when it's dry and hard, you can lay your...

    But those damn cottontail bunnies--when they are just at the cusp of being on their own, but still in their stupidly shallow "nest" in my pastures--jump UP when the mower goes over them! UGH. I try...

    I agree that if La Mundial has a good rep in your area, they are fantastic boots. My custom field boots from them are deliciously designed and buttery soft and fit like a glove. All for under $700.
