    The person trying to get you to end an already bid on item early was just fruity (or had been looking at a bunch of similar items and sent her message on the wrong one). But the rest of your gripe?...

    I drop mine off at service places with notoriously bad reading material (ie, tire repair place, certain doctor's offices, etc). I tear off the little address section. I've found myself reading a...

    :sigh: At least I'm not alone in my little world of inflexibility. I was doing stretching exercises & seeing a massage therapist twice a week for almost a year and saw almost NO improvement in my...

    Would she be willing to 'window shop' barns? I was pretty hesitant about leaving Barn From Hell because it was cheap, it was close to my house, I was doing self-care (though paying for full) &...

    I took a couple bad falls in a row, lost my confidence, was just getting it back thanks to a WONDERFUL mare I had known before my falls and who luckily came up for sale right when I needed her. Then...

    I actually have a friend who is in the market for this, though she's actually looking at places that will also allow her to bring her (very well-behaved) dog. The places she's looked at generally...

    omg...just talk to the freakin' trainer already about what the rate plan is for this. Every trainer has one (though how long it's been since they updated it or if they remember where the file is may...

    Maybe try to come up with other suggestions than babysitting? As much as I love horses, at ANY age babysitting to me was the equivilant of having my fingernails sloowwwllyy pulled out while someone...

    Not horseless now (NOW I'm trying to find people to ride/play with my horses :p) but when I was I did all sorts of things depending on what my time & finances allowed. Volunteered at a couple horse...

    Ok, I'm in the minority here but personally I think ANY boss, no matter how nice, is going to be upset when an employee hurts themselves enough that they can't work, ESPECIALLY when the company is...

    If you have a military ID, go to the Commisary. Really. I was married to a Marine for quite awhile before I bothered to go. It was out of the way, the hours were a pain, I was already a pretty...

    I don't get what your problem is with smooth wire fencing. Unless your horse is 100% idiot & has never been turned out before, or is completely blind & a bolting maniac, why on earth are you worried...

    oh, man...this is about to get really entertaining isn't it?

    Thanks for updating. Parent B is just mind-boggling, isn't he? I feel terribly sorry for his kid. I'm glad to hear that pony IS making progress though.

    Have you tried posting on craigslist in the farm section? That is actually how I found my barn (or rather she found me ;) ). I couldn't take it where I was another day & posted a request on...

    Egads. At the least, I would put up the "no trespassing" signs, lock gates & tack rooms, and honestly I would probably arrange to have someone video the entire thing while they get the pony.

    Well, if you decide you're up for Bonsall/Fallbrook, I can PM you my barn's info. It's a private facility but with lovely rubber footing, option of either 24/7 turnout or big stalls with runs...

    personally, I wouldn't include anything about insurance. Guy sounds like enough of a creep to deliberately try to get you in trouble with your insurance company.

    I would stick with certified...

    I've used it orally as a wormer, and in carpet for fleas (in the days before Advantage & FrontlinePlus). It works great, but it *is* an inhalation hazard. You do *not* want to breath this stuff, or...

    Thanks for posting the link! :)

    (and I most certainly sympathise with nice kids stuck with less-than-stellar trainers/parents. Though I will also add the caveat that parents can be crappy as...

    Oh, fer cryin out loud...just tell us what name the horse is under so we can all go look for ourselves. :p You know we have no self restraint...

    GLS...in YOUR area those are the costs. NOT in the OP's area.

    Normally you're pretty good in your assessments, this time you seem to have a bug up your rear and aren't paying attention.

    Waaaaaa....Drama llama wants to be fed!

    Yeah, so I'm a bad person. I can't help it.

    Is is housing situation different now? (ie, turnout, stall size/type, etc) We had a horse come into my old barn that was similar. Eventually we figured out that she would ONLY lay down to sleep if...
