    They may have changed since I had mine, because it was three computers ago, but I would run far, far away from an Acer. I had so many issues with mine (most of them right after the warranty ran out)...

    See, I don't see it that way...quite the opposite. I hate that some of them, no matter how many well-meaning rescues there are, are going to die in shelters. Unfortunately, until the world changes,...

    I'm with the "way too high" camp. The highest adoption fee I've ever paid to a rescue was $300...for a HORSE. For a dog? Nope, sorry, not when I can spring one from any county shelter for $100 or...

    So...did some digging online for alternatives and one site said it works fine (possibly actually better) if you do it in intervals of 10 seconds plank, 3 seconds rest. I was able to make the three...

    Thanks for the input. Interesting about the old shoulder issues--I hurt that shoulder years ago, but it's never given me any issues until now. Apparently this is just hard on it. I wonder if I...
  6. Has anyone else done the 30-day planking thing?

    ...and not be able to get past a certain point. I'm about halfway through, and was fine at first...up to two minutes. I cannot do two minutes 30 seconds--my shoulder starts cramping and I can't...

    I know many think that rehoming a horse at his age is the wrong thing to do, but if he's sound and capable of doing a job, then I think it's fine, and personally, if I was looking, I'd snap him up in...

    Having had shingles (my case was mild and it was still horrible!), I would get the shot if I could to diminish the chance or severity of a second round. Last I knew, though, it was only approved for...

    I believe in using the mildest bit that gets the desired result when used correctly by a rider with a good, independent hand. So...

    If it were my horse and I had the money, I'd have a full-body nuclear scan done. It should help pinpoint where the real issue is (neck? back? SI? hocks? something else?) and then you can use the...

    I teach mostly kids (up-downers up to crossrails) and I usually have one working student who comes on Saturday mornings and works for 2-3 hours and then gets a half-hour lesson (and/or a hack if...

    I have a 12-year-old student who half-leases my horse in the summer. It's obviously a mutual love affair. He will do ANYTHING for her. She rides him everywhere bareback in a halter. One day she...

    I went through similar with my boy a couple years ago, though his lameness wasn't as severe. Vet (well respected lameness vet) diagnosed a soft tissue injury to the stifle, probably from a slip in...

    Yes I have...and I said you can verbally correct a horse at the immediate time of the misbehavior. I have, however, never heard a horse stand there and repeatedly squeal and holler at another horse...

    In disciplining horses, you have to think like a horse. Horses don't yell at each other. The dominant horse delivers a swift, physical punishment, such as a return bite or a kick. The dominant...

    I have one sitting on my bookcase right now, waiting for her dinner. She was at a barn where I worked and had been left there by a few other barn leasers over her life span. When the person leasing...

    I like the look of those...and they do come in youth sizes if you search for them online :)

    I LOVE my Sorels--can't beat the warmth. Yeah, they're clunky, but they're WARM, waterproof, and have great traction. If you can wear a youth size, they're often cheaper and a little shorter. Mine...

    Where in NC? I go across CT/NY on 84 to 81 in PA and down to 77 to get to central NC. If you're going Raleigh/eastern NC, you'd want to take 95, though.

    I tried applying for seasonal retail stuff...nothing. I have retail experience. Didn't help. I've applied for every crap job in my area. Nothing.

    I recently went to a job fair where there were several local temp agencies. So far, not a single call.

    If I could afford to take classes, I would do vet tech or something. But right now, that's...

    Believe me, I've applied for anything and everything. I'm not picky. I'm currently taking a resume writing class and volunteering extensively with 4-H.

  25. Anyone Else Long-Term Unemployed? How Do You Keep Your Chin Up and Keep Going?

    Like the title says, how do you keep your chin up while looking (and looking, and looking, and looking some more) for work.
