    Thanks for the sentiment- I just received word that they are safe and on their way back to one of the main cities. Here's hoping that there are more happy endings to some of the unanswered stories on...

    Well, I wouldn't have been able to say yes until just this weekend. Two people I know (not very well, but they were influential to me nonetheless) are currently missing in Nepal. They were last heard...

    I will (hopefully) be fostering kitties this summer, but I am very determined to NOT foster-fail. I guess we'll see how that goes...
    I'll also be spaying a shelter kitty (my first surgery!!!) in...

    Oh I must have misread your original post where you said it was a working-student position you were looking for. Can't think of anyone specific right now, but I'll let you know if anyone comes to...

    Not to be a Debbie Downer, but good luck finding a situation on Long Island that lets you ride a few days a week (and take lessons on occasion) for cheaper than the SBU Eq Team.

    I'm from that...

    I've never had this specific problem (any cats I've known who didn't use their box, it was a behavioral issue and not just a "whoops"), but have you tried Dr. Elsey's Cat Attract Litter?...

    I eat two eggs every morning (either in a veggie omelet or just over-easy on toast or rice and beans)! Hasn't failed me yet, and more recent studies have shown that maybe the cholesterol in the yolks...

    Hero taught me to get on quick, using his momentum as he walks away from the block to propel my leg over his back.

    It feels weird when I get on a horse that stands still for mounting.

    My picky eater turns her nose up at anything but Fancy Feast (has to be in gravy, too!). Her brother will eat anything that sits still long enough, but I feed them both Fancy Feast for simplicity's...

    I bought my current horse back when I was a teen, riding regularly with an instructor, so she helped me with my horse search (for a commission). She definitely earned it, because I found my horse...

    I think there is a lot of value in both kinds of dog training, and a lot of it depends on your goals/problems.

    In-home is ideal for issues that happen primarily in the home, or for issues that...

    I went for a school trip, and it was FANTASTIC.
    Our guides were really great- one was Paul McFarling from http://www.galapex.com/ (he has since moved back to England, but I think he still runs tours...

    My dog (a fit, energetic, 4 year old pit mix) is a lot like yours in her desire to inhale all of the food all of the time.
    I never considered it to be a sign of some ailment, just a personality...

    As soon as I became an adult in the eyes of USEF, I felt like a load of bricks had been taken off my back. And I wasn't even REALLY seriously competitive- just local B/C shows for the most part-...

    I like "Jade," "Claire,"and "Grace"- agreed that a 3-syllable first name sounds good with a one-syllable middle name.

    Evaleigh is a pretty name!

    So sorry for your loss- I know there's nothing I can say to make it feel any better. But from your posts, it is obvious that you truly did everything you could to keep her as happy and comfortable as...

    I would probably be interested in trying it, to see if/how the anti-browning modifications affect the flavor.

    I've always thought that seeded watermelons (as an example) taste sweeter than...

    As a former vegetarian, but otherwise un-picky eater (and now that I eat meat sometimes, even LESS picky), I'd say at least some of the responsibility lies on the picky eater. I never expected people...

    I don't have much experience with this in particular, but one thing that comes to mind is whether or not you are using a "butterfly" needle (one with a tube attached that gives you a little more...

    Thanks everyone! One comment on my test was that I let him go back and forth from being in front of my leg to being behind it. I think next time I ride I'll throw a set of spurs on and really work on...

    Encouraging the stretch?

    Hi everyone!
    I'm a hunter princess gone all dressage-y since a change of location and also as a way of exploring new things with the horse I've owned for 7 years now!

    I wanted to know if you had...

    Call him a hunter or eventer or anything you want, I see a cute, happy horse who seems to enjoy his job.

    If he (and you) like to event, then event! But also know that you could throw him in a...
