    Managed to get off, cool out, clean up and drive 3/4 of the way home before realizing I still had my riding helmet on :)

    Safety first!

    A few weeks. I am naturally a purger and with the exception of a few staples (e.g. soup stock, canned tomatoes and beans) we don't keep a ton on hand. I imagine we could last 2-3 weeks for two...

    We attend so many different gatherings we almost always have both. But if I had my way it would be turkey. All.the.time. Yummmmmm.

    When I have leased (all free leases) I was responsible for all bills including the vet. So this is not unheard of. I do agree with the above however that if you are sharing the horse than it would be...

    Would I seem shallow if I said I love the presents?! LOL

    In all seriousness I just love the traditions. My in-laws are nuts about Christmas, and have numerous rituals and traditions that we must...

    Assuming it's actually true, why does PETA put them down rather than re-homing?! Is it because they don't want them in the hands of humans? It just seems so strange that they are trying to save...

    This is neat. What is the purpose of having them single file versus doubled up? I've never seen this before (and generally mt exposure to driving is limited!)

    I've found that gel polish and gel nails don't survive the barn. I have bad nails though so not sure if that has something to do with it (e.g. does't adhere as well). It's sad because I love the...

    Unless I am missing something I think this is less an issue of being a part-boarder and more an issue of ring etiquette. Can you not simply have a conversation with the riders and outline to them...

    Good grief - it was a joke. Hence the smiley face. Rather than the "neener neener I'm better than you" face.

    This is such a nice thread. As a life long leaser/part-boarder (almost 25 years!) I can say it's nice when owners do show appreciation the good ones :).

    Thank you.

    Isn't that, like, +5 degrees C? If so I would sweat to death in a heated coat even if outside. I suppose 'cold' is relative though. :)

    It seems that those who have them love them. My husband asked once about getting me one and at the time it didn't seem to make much sense.

    I find as soon as I start moving around I warm up pretty...

    The BO where I ride brings in students from Europe to work for her on a regular basis. In principle, it gives her able bodied workers to do the basic are and maintenance, and they in return get room...

    It's so, so sad. Do they really have a chance at this point? My understanding is that there are many powerful people who have many financial interests in seeming them go.

    How awful to be in the sights of these lunatics. Hoping they get bored and leave the OP's place alone.

    I would be talking to a lawyer before spending any money on PIs etc to see if it actually would be useful or make a difference. I agree with the other comments that she needs to ensure that she is...

    I agree with the general sentiment - stay out of it and let the others on the committee decide if she is the best person for the job. Every candidate will have strengths and weaknesses that you will...

    I pretty much ONLY wear fleece. I will have other layers under it, and often a vest on top. I always wear a lower pile fleece and have really never noticed anything sticking to it much (well more...

    If the pony is still not lunging after 2 years I agree it's time to get some professional assistance - especially if her protests include kicking and rearing. She needs to learn respect on the ground...

    While I tend to reserve judgement on these kinds of posts, I have to say that those photos are pretty disturbing. Hopefully those horses get some help.

    I think it's worth remembering that you have no idea who is at the other end of the keyboard. It could be a complete idiot who doesn't know a horse's tail from their own a$$. Or it could be a...

    I will never own a gun. I don't know anyone who own a gun (with the exception of a few hunters and farmers who keep a shotgun in the event of a injured or sick animal coming on property). I don't...
