    It would do harm because clearly faragloo is the "conduit" professor for this organization, and since the practicum is so similar to the organization it makes sense that faragloo's opinion would...

    Thanks, Bluey, good advice.

    Much as I like coyotes, I absolutely run them off whenever I see them (and my dogs do too). Will keep doing so.

    I suspect its been a very hard winter and they may...

    PS "school" isn't real life. It would be extremely unusual if your student had a high pressure assignment due in one hour on the job (vs. a test in school).

    My college son has wowed people in his...

    If you are concerned, ask your vet, but harder-keeping TBs generally do fantastically well on lush grass. At least, that's my experience with retired horses on big pastures here.

    As the mother of two boys with ADD, each of which get extra time, I agree with ASB Stars.

    While we are talking about wildlife . . .

    I watched my red heeler mix chase 2 coyotes away in the field behind my house early this morning. They were the same size he was (about 45 - 50 lb). ...

    Update: I called the GS-1 and had someone walk me through it. And she agreed, it is impossible to do given their website, which is unusable, pretty much. I just write this on the very small chance...

    So, had a closer look, and Bluebird's solution will not work for us :-(

    That company has 100,000 upc codes to sell -- but they are all in that company's name, and those UPC codes are not accepted...

    OMG bluebird, I love you!!!

    This looks perfect! Trying to figure out the GS-1 rules was driving me batty!

    More evidence that COTH *IS* the Source of All Knowledge!!
  14. A longshot: has anyone ever created a UPC code?

    Because COTH is the Source Of All Knowledge, I'm asking a very obscure question:

    I'm creating a new product and it needs a bar code on it. I've gotten as far as getting a company number from the...

    I soak all the horses' feed here for every meal after having a couple choke.

    Everyone is assuming the OP has her horse fed in a stall, with a pan -- and probably she does! But my horses are fed...

    Agree, I think out is better for ALL horses!

    I will share this anecdote -- there's a retirement boarding farm near me that keeps the horses in stalls 20 hours a day. The owner told me the leading...

    As to the stall wall, I like my set up. The wall goes 3/4's of the way up to the ceiling -- way too high to get a nose over, probably 7'? tall (I'm bad at guessing). But, rather than being solid,...

    I think if you sponsored an award, like "best groomed", or if you had some kind of contest that benefited a local rider, or a local equine rescue you'd get WAY more attention than sponsoring a class....

    No problem, 3chestnuts, and thanks for taking my posts constructively. For what it's worth, I board retired horses and had my horse at home. I even put in an outdoor ring. And I don't ride any...

    In thinking about this more, I'd add another point. In addition to tying up a lot of money, think about the ongoing big expenses. Insurance for boarding actually doesn't cost all that much. But...

    To be blunt I think this makes no economic sense at all.

    It would mean you borrowing a lot more money and refinancing your current house. That is tying up a LOT of your assets -- SO much easier...
