    je suis confused.

    Chipotle would be a great pony name.

    I have no idea who the PO is and no inclination to put the effort into research.

    I think this thread has been fertilized with...

    Why didn't fate step in and provide thief with a barn-sour bucker that wouldn't have left the yard?

    Though the thief deserved all of it, the cops should not have continued to beat him after he was...

    It could be worse...her husband could have popped out of the tackroom and run into the woods...you'd have to bait the trap with a six-pack.
    Seriously, the cat may well get home on its own. We have...

    That is the beauty of a center-rigged saddle - a more stable rig and it isn't in the horse's armpits, either. I've never had a saddle tilt so much that it wanted to tip me out when I was riding...

    Flank cinches for general use are always smooth leather and must have the link strap so that they don't go back where they don't belong. Why not consider getting an Aussie saddle that is center-fire...

    I copied this in here because it is so similar to so many of the OCD barn owners that get described on these pages.

    I was going to suggest Broken Horn, but I see that I've been beaten to it. When we lived in Bakersfield, the ladies of the barn made a pilgrimage to Broken Horn one day, and it was wonderful. We...

    There used to be a big fancy fund-raiser horse show in Wilsonville, "The Country Classic," that IIRC was linked with the Portland Opera. It was miles above the usual horse show, with tents and...

    My first Arab costume class was in a borrowed costume, and the head-dress was made from a lampshade...the kind that clipped over the lightbulb with a pair of wires...which were still in the...

    CHT, I feel your vet's pain at trying to determine the soundness of a gaited horse. We used to endurance ride a Tennessee Walker mare, who naturally had no trot, and some vets would be baffled about...

    Demidq, it's too bad that was before the days of Youtube. I'd PAY to watch that, and your description is magnificent. Your mother was a genius. I can see the chaos now...

    I think he looks just like a lot of other Appies and isn't ugly at all. Or at least not substantially so. The perfect Pony Club horse. Roach his mane and send him out to be an eventer or family...

    Oh my. I never had time to read back then, it took too much time to chase the dinosaurs away from the farm. Darn things kept stirring up the stock all the time.

    I had the anthology with "Dark...

    The big brand is probably the result of using a cattle iron on a horse as a youngster - horse irons are smaller. I've seen a few of the oversized brands, usually on reservation stock. The family...

    Whistlejacket is my nomination. With regard to "End of the Trail," it is a statement piece that doesn't even show on my radar as equestrian art. Though it is ubiquitous, and possibly one of the...

    I had Lasik in 2000. My eyes were very bad - I could see 3 feet with one eye and 6 feet with the other, and thick glasses had been a way of life. Post-surgery, I am 20-15, and while there's been...

    Paula and SportArab, that's exactly what works for us. Just keep walking after the horse until the horse stops and lets himself be caught. For the mustang, it took two hours of walking the first...

    When it's time for a horse to go to a new person, that person will appear. It's pony magic. You did the right thing by both of them, and someday the little girl will pay it forward to another child.
