    I've only read the first page, but wanted to post while I'm still motivated to do so. Then I'll go back and catch up. :)

    I am trying to remember if I have ever asked to ride someone's horse. I...

    I went to high school with a girl who boards there, and she told me it was currently bank-owned. This was maybe a month or so ago. I drive by it every day on my way to work and there are always a lot...

    I knew I'd think of a second one.

    I'm sitting in the barn office when I hear this ruckus going on in the aisle, right outside the office. One of the instructor's adult working students decided to...

    I once opened the door of one of the barn's tack rooms to find a whole group of 9 and 10 year-old girls sitting around on tack trunks, i-Pods and phones outs, with a frickin pony standing in the...

    I got into a conversation once with someone about liability waivers and insurance at the barn where I board. She was talking about how she was going to take her kid to one of those trampoline places...

    I've always boarded at big boarding/lesson/show barns, so I don't really mind people wandering around looking at horses. Mine is friendly like a lap dog, so if I'm tacking up and kids want to pet...

    I would wait to make any big decisions like giving up riding! This has been a rough winter. I'm usually pretty good about sucking it up and riding in the cold, but this winter I've hardly ridden. ...

    Would it be wrong of me to print this thread and leave it on my SO's computer? :D I'm sure someday he'll come up with a lovely proposal, but somehow I'm doubting it will involve riding at a...

    Thanks for the info!

    The vet did mention he would need regular bloodwork if we treat with Chlorambucil. There was no mention of any of the other drugs you listed. His surgery was close to a...

    I'm so sorry for your loss. :( I'm an animal lover in general, but I've always had a soft spot for cats. She was very beautiful.

    Hi all. I'm posting to see who here has dealt with lymphoma in cats.

    I don't think I've ever grabbed the wrong horse before, but sometimes I have trouble determining who's who. The barn I board/work at is very large, and even though I see all the horses in their...

    With my own horse, I unclip the lead rope and let him walk in ahead of me, then go in and remove the halter. I don't remove his halter outside of the stall. He's pretty well mannered and isn't...

    When I was a teenager, I imagined that by the time I was 30 I'd be showing hunters in the A's. I never really dreamed of being a pro, or riding in the Olympics, but the A circuit - I figured I'd get...

    My horse is not only fleabitten gray, he's a freaking pig. He will find the single tiny mud patch in the pasture and somehow manage to coat half his body in it. He uses manure as a pillow. I'm...

    A couple of years ago, my sister-in-law told me that a friend of hers and the friend's husband wanted to go riding. I know the friend, and I cannot stand her. I told her my barn does trail rides on...

    My barn does "lesson cards", which is 11 lessons for the price of 10. They are punch cards that are kept in the barn office, so riders don't have to worry about forgetting or losing their cards. ...

    This is how it was when I moved into my current barn. I paid $50 to hold the stall, then it got applied to my first month's board.

    I'm not sure how I'd feel about a security deposit. As long...

    My own personal cutoff is usually single digits. It's just not fun when it's that cold. Seriously, if I can't feel my face - it's not fun!

    I didn't ride Monday and Tuesday because our high temp...

    My horse is pretty level headed and doesn't spook at much. It's probably largely due to the fact that I boarded for many years at a barn whose outdoor arena bordered a major highway. Semis,...

    I have days where I definitely enjoy being alone at the barn, but I really need a barn with people around. For one, I love being able to say, "Hey Susie, come look at my horse's newest injury. What...

    It's not quite as cold here as some places, but we're expecting some pretty frigid weather, too. Right now it's 12 degrees with a "feels like" temp of 2 (according to my weather app). Tonight's low...

    Somewhere at my mom's house there is a video tape of me as an 11 yr old learning to jump. I got left behind and popped loose on the landing. The saintly school horse I was on felt me loosing my...

    I have never felt guilty about the things mentioned in the OP. Does anyone? :confused:

    I did feel guilty a few years ago when my horse was badly injured in a pasture accident and was confined to...
