    During the last Olympics you could watch via computer if your TV service included the NBC channels, NBC sports, and others. I'm assuming the same will apply this time. Maybe check with the networks...

    Cool video. I never could figure out how to arrange the pantyhose around his nose, and nobody else did either. The Cashel nose net is inexpensive enough so I just went ahead with that. My pet...

    While you're thinking of other things, just try going straight to either the riding fly mask with nose guard or the nose net and see what happens. I wasted a lot of years of trying to rule out...

    And once again (despite the Rolex showing) Marilyn Little and her mare show up with their game faces on. They are in many ways far more consistent than most of the present team members.

    I found it interesting to have two separate threads about the same horse. I'm glad that he found what sounds like a great home. As far as the rest of the controversy, who cares? Mountains out of...

    Perhaps the vet has other ideas or recommendations. The vet school in my area puts the carcass in an acid bath and that's that. Perhaps the state vet school, if not far away, has a euth and...

    It sounds like the OP had the horse for two years, and of course is attached to him. She did all the right things, and IMO the original owner WAS rude. Granted they didn't have to be BFF, but a...

    You could always find out from them who the designer and/or builder was and go from there with estimates, etc.

    If she is on board with this, have her go with you to the barn and transfer the boarding agreement/contract from her to you. Once that is done then you can move the horse when you are ready to. At...

    I tried the Anne Kursinski method on my horse's impossible mane. Had to stop midway because it was getting windy and rainy, but I think it's definitely an improvement. The video explains it well. ...

    I'll bet Art is glad he's not dealing with the Coburns again, especially mixed up with Chrome, etc.

    Maybe try the high desert in Eastern Oregon, around Bend or that area. High enough for snow and skiing in the winter, nice warm to hot dry summers. It's been years since I lived in the area, but...
