    I would tell the BM but it would be as a CYA (or C "my" A!) in case anyone gets their nose out of joint when they see me with a whip/crop. If for example the BM were to say "OMG no! Don't do that! ...

    I think it looks like fun BUT I would want my legs enclosed in the bouncy bubble. How ridiculous to think that a full HALF of one's body can be left exposed. Put me in a human equivalent of one of...

    I did, but the "speed events" and jumping were on two legs, and the sedate stuff like grazing was on all fours. I can't imagine doing what that kid in the GIF did.

    I prized the cardboard handles...

    Long long time ago, I was riding my sister's BTDT mare. Before my sister bought this mare, she was the horse I took lessons on, so we had history and I didn't think there was an unpredictable bone...

    I have both leased and given away a couple of horses and have gotten "the call" that says it's not working out, can you take him/her back? What a dilemma! It is never a good time. Sometimes it is...

    My first cat was killed by a car. That was 31 years ago. All of my pet cats have been indoor-only ever since. I have had barn cats, and went through a particularly bad year where they were...

    Wow, what's that expression about lying down with dogs? Tres Delaforce must be covered with fleas with the company she keeps. As soon as I saw that name on the big Facebook rant today, I thought to...

    Never kicked out of a barn per se, but have had two emergency "find a barn" scenarios! First was in Utah, I got a call while on a business trip from a lawyer or LEO, I can't recall, telling me the...

    I don't have much luck with the food approach. But I'm a pretty skilled pill giver and can pick up the cat, get him/her in the right position, open the mouth, toss and even finish up with a push...

    When I had my first horse, and there was no turnout (yes, he had a stall only, how little I knew then!) we called it "letting XXXX out for a run". And we'd never do it when it could annoy someone or...

    That was dreadful. In all possible ways. The vigilantes can back off on Premarin now, the propaganda was "successful". And it resulted in Pfizer moving the operations to the third world. Careful what...

    Was it this one? I saw lots of listings with similar names, and I have too much to do today to spend it in a soggy stupor! Next time I want to spend an evening that way I know what to search for. ...

    Don't know if your climate is conducive to horse lice, but Western WA is. Vet recommended Bronco specifically, so when I did the same thing you did (bought it for flies, and it failed) I kept it...

    BeeHoney said much of what I was going to say -- you have to separate your horse's care (and the value of that care) from any feelings you have about the owner's business plan. The latter is none of...

    Thanks for reminding me, I'm due to trim the kitties. None of them like it, but all tolerate it. I don't take no for an answer, though I agree one doesn't have to do the entire cat's worth of nails...

    No hints other than the sacrificial food on the ground, but this reminds me of when I was a kid and the mourning doves started coming to our yard and feeders. Day one, one mourning dove, my mother...

    He is definitely buckskin. And I think he looks like a Paint. I bred Paints and (intentionally) most did not look or move like stock horses. There's a world of variation in that breed!

    I sort of did but I was all wrong! I thought geldings were mares when I was little, before I had anything to do with horses. That's the result of figuring out or being told about nursing a baby....

    I agree that the only unbreakable combo I've ever come across is a rope halter with a lead rope tied to the loop under the horse's chin. Whether that's what you WANT and NEED depends on what kind of...
