    Guess I ought to check back in on this thread! My baby showed up on 7/6 at 40+2. Delivered vaginally at 9lb, 8oz and 22" long with no internal tears after a speedy 18 minutes of pushing. DH has a...

    If it makes you feel better, I haven't ridden since October - thanks to the 10lb "tiny" human that is asleep on me while I type this. I haven't yet climbed back in the saddle, just 2 weeks postpartum...

    If you don't mind being slightly more specific about where you're at in the WV (you can PM me if you don't want to post it here), I'd be happy to give you a couple names. If my farrier goes your way,...

    Well, do you want to get paid or do you want the horse's condition to improve? Because it doesn't sound like you will get both. You could offer to feed an extra meal, but I'm guessing it would come...

    Rent a husband? We get 1200lb rectangular bales, one at a time (lasts one horse on pasture about 2 months) and Mr. Heinz unloads by hand. The trouble would be if you are buying a quantity and...

    OP, where are you located?

    I switched to Purina's version of haystack SB, bagged under the Albers label as Special 6. I just couldn't rationalize paying $28/bag for TC Sr, especially not while...

    Everyone's pregnancy is so different - I am 32 weeks now and I am HUGE (non-maternity pants are a distant memory). I would not consider doing more than some walking and maybe some easy trotting in a...

    Many horses have pages - I follow lots of stallion pages, so I don't think it would be that unheard of. My own horse doesn't have a page, because he doesn't really do anything that I think people...
