    I agree with the above...I'd run away from a NQR horse. There are too many out there who are sound. And we all know that can change in a heartbeat.

    I have a riding buddy who has two goats. I used to go over to her house to pick her and her horse up to ride by driving out back by her barn. After the bigger goat head butted me and then pawed at...

    My husband died 15 years ago. I've noticed, too, that people aren't comfortable talking about him, about loss, about what you miss when you lose your partner. A couple of years ago at a horse show...

    I bought a ranch horse at a sale in Winnemucca, Nevada. It was a blast! I'd gone to bid on one specific horse, so checked him out in person then tried to play it very cool throughout the day until...

    Most scented candles...I immediately develop a bad headache.

    Cigarette smoke. Cigars, too. But pipes smell good, if I'm outside. Inside, awful.

    I just had a handyman out yesterday that I found through Angie's List. He was fabulous, knocked out a long list of projects in 1/2 day. I'd definitely call them again. Also had my trees trimmed in...

    Slightly different, but the concept is the same. I was in charge of a trail ride for a riding club. I handed out flyers telling where/when/how long, etc. In bold print it said we would be leaving...

    I've done the porta-potty while holding the reins maneuver, and I always took it as a sign of how well trained my horse was. I never thought of it as stupid!

    Don't forget that her family needs support, too. Sadly, few people care about the caregivers...and it's a mind-numbing, gut-wrenching, seemingly never-ending terrifying experience. All the while...

    I have a gelding who is 15.1 if he stands up really tall. He seems very small to me, but I took him to a reining trainer and his first reaction what "He's a big one, isn't he?"

    I read on another board that if you have a living quarters trailer you're classified as an RV so it doesn't apply. Is that true?
