    I buy mine at my local food co-op. It's $2.49/lb for brown flax seeds, which is fine for me because I'm only feeding one horse 1/2 cup per day. It's usually something like $20/month. Sometimes it...

    RWR no knot hairnets are the best! I have medium-thick wavy hair (with bangs right now) that's currently down to my bra strap, and I can arrange it neatly with a RWR net so that it doesn't interfere...

    I'm 6', size 14-ish, and I ride in a Stubben Siegfried CS Extra(18" extra forward flap). I originally wanted a Stubben Roxanne but couldn't find the right one in my sub-$1000 budget. I'm also one...

    Seriously. My horse would disown me if I did the "proper" full grooming. Which I know and love doing if I have time.

    My routine is soft rubber curry glove (hard side in winter), sort of stiff...

    I wrap my finger in my tack cleaning washcloth and gently scrape them off. Never had a problem scratching the leather. I use castile soap if they're bad but normally my Higher Standards soap does...

    I have catapulted myself over my horse while mounting. Twice. Once in front of about 15 teenage boys and once while moving bulls back into the correct pasture--I scared the sh*t out of those bulls....

    Well, I was riding when the neighbors started setting off fireworks near my boarding barn tonight.......and I found out that thankfully my horse doesn't care. I still cut the ride short so I could...

    I board at a multi-discipline barn and I've tried lots of different thing with my TB. I mainly do dressage and jumpers, but if the barrel racers have their barrels set up I'll make a few runs :D. ...

    I use a thin square or fitted pad directly on my horse's back, a Thinline on top of that, a Roma sheepskin half pad on top of that, and then the saddle. It sounds like a lot but it's really not...

    I feel like that would depend on the quality of both the wine and the fruit. When I first discovered that blackberries soaked in tequila are delicious, I was experimenting with cheesecake recipes...

    LOL it's not a real recipe (or sorbet, I just don't know what it technically is). Take 2 small cartons of blackberries, blend/mash with sugar and tequila to taste (like maybe 1/4 cup sugar and a 4...

    My takeaway from this thread so far is that it was an EXCELLENT idea to put tequila in the batch of blackberry sorbet I made yesterday.

    I have a physically demanding job doing maintenance for a large animal vet and I ride 4 times a week for 30-60 minutes. Even though I'm pretty fit just from that, I started running again about a...

    I used to teach group jumping lesson (only up to about 2'6, maaaaaybe 3') in a 60x120 indoor. Up to 6 people at a time, too. We had to be VERY organized but our kids kicked butt in local jumper...

    Things I've used to make jumps--all of these were safely jumpable from both sides:

    A large (2'×6'×2') wooden box that a tractor part came in became 2 2'×3'×2' boxes and then 2 coops and a solid...

    I've had lots of experience with hard to catch horses. Luckily my last experience wasn't too bad. I was bringing in at my harn a few nights ago and the last two horses that I had to bring in (out...

    The only jeans I've ever been able to tolerate riding in are Old Navy Rockstar skinny jeans. I can't comment much on the chafing, though. For long cattle drives I wore my (sadly discontinued) Horze...

    I had put off buying one because I'd never seen them in person and didn't understand the hype. Then I tried one on. Whoops.

    I for one was thrilled to be at Devon this year as a spectator. I used to live in the area and moved away a few years ago--my little brother conveniently got married last weekend in Philadelphia, so...

    Wow, that's sad to hear. I don't know you IRL gumtree, but I do enjoy reading your posts. I can't imagine being in your shoes and I wish you all the luck in the world no matter what you ultimately...

    The OP lost me at "calf yanking" and I have also never heard someone who owns cattle refer to themselves as a "cattle farmer." I have some cattle experience, not as much as others here, so I may be...

    I like Nyquist, Exaggerator, and Mor Spirit. My mom always picks grays and is so excited to have multiple grays to choose from. I told her Creator's her best bet.
