    I suspect, though I don't know for sure, that because of the unique karst geology, particularly in LockeMeadows' part of Clarke, that burial of livestock is prohibited for public health reasons. ...

    Thanks for that article. Very interesting, although the examples it gives (Rhodesia and Palestine) are a little different politically than Puerto Rico which isn't making any move to leave the US. ...

    Can't make the decision for you as to how much you want to deal with, but I did have a (4 year old) who had exactly this same issue, although I was lucky and didn't ever come off of him.

    Just as a different perspective, I've worked with Colleen on several saddles for different horses. I've never had a problem getting an excellent fit, and my saddles have arrived as ordered and...

    Anywhere between Washington D.C., Richmond, and Lexington VA (within that triangle) gets you pretty close to a lot of venues for many disciplines, high quality training, and a bevy of sport horse vet...

    One of my pastures surrounds 3/4 of my riding arena. The gate opening to the barn is to the left of the arena, and there is a dead end...

    I have a young horse with NO topline and the saddle fitter suggested a ProLite pad with shims so I can reduce the bulk over time. Seems to be working great, and he's building muscle so I'll be able...

    You are not to blame. And kudos to you for fencing your animals in.

    I had to live through my neighbors dogs, who have menaced me and my animals (chickens, dogs, horses and cats) more times than...

    I was stepped on about 10 weeks ago. I knew the toe was broken without and X-ray, but I didn't bother going to get it checked as there is very little they'll do for little toes. Plus, I felt silly....

    Interesting that they'll be in Williamston two years in a row for Region 1. They usually alternate with the Virginia Horse Center, with the BLMs then being held in the other facility (or in NJ).

    The problem you have is that there are only 4 ways between NoVA and I-81 to get over Shenandoah National Park. You either take I-66 and go north of the park, do the very twisty-windy roads of 211 or...

    I will say that my boots were super easy to break in. I used heel lifts, and had practically no issues, unlike my Petrie's which took months and left scars on my legs.

    When I bought my Koenigs last year, I asked the reputable seller if they shouldn't be tighter because they were so easy to zip and I could fit a finger between my knee and the boot. She said no...

    I think year matters less than mileage. Get the lowest mileage truck you can find. You never know what that truck did for the first however many miles, nor how it was cared for. I'd also recommend...

    Blue Ridge Animal Hospital, and Dr. Rushing in particular, have been a great small animal vet for us.

    I'd recommend my farrier, who is amazing, but who I also know isn't taking clients.

    When I was looking for Cardoon, I sat on one that I really liked, at his home. We liked him enough, that the owner allowed us to take him to my trainer's barn. In the first 5 minutes of that ride,...
