    It hasn't been quite forty years for me;), but my Mom does the exact same thing. I can't speak of my father in her presence. It gets very awkward and she shuts down. And she still takes cheap shots...

    My parents divorced when I was 16, and although it was a much different scenario, I know what you are feeling right now. My loyalty was actually opposite- it was my father I felt very close to and...

    Had to look it up! I have 2 pairs of the #2 Azzura. I wear white in both dressage and XC usually, and they have stood up to many washings very well, and come out of the washer squeaky clean every...

    I used to board at a military stable when I was still in the military (I was the only one at the barn that was NOT a military wife). It was the most dramatic and petty boarding experience I've ever...

    My horse had a branch tear in the right hind 4 years ago, right after I bought him off the track. I was absolutely anal about following vet's orders and rehab procedures precisely. I did not do...

    Love Muck Itch! It's what I normally use for his hind leg scratches. I did use that yesterday. It looked better today for sure. I'm going to buy 2 shoulder sleazies tomorrow to have one and wash one,...

    MoonLadyIsis, that sounds familiar! I think I'll get a couple of large shoulder sleazies and try that. I am fortunate that I can still wash, so hopefully this will be the ticket!

    He had some bumps on his neck in the last week, but I assumed it was a reaction to a bug that had gotten stuck in his blanket or some other irritation. This horse is not really a "rain rot sufferer"-...

    I thought about buying a couple of sleazies to protect the blankets and since they are easy to wash, but I'm thinking that tight material might make the rain rot worse??

    After a short 3 day hiatus from the barn due to massive amounts of rain, I went out yesterday to find my horse's right shoulder, base of his neck and reaching around toward his chest completely...

    I get where you're going with this, but think about the other girl here. What if she was you?? Does it matter AT ALL what the "other woman's" reason is for telling? Not to me it wouldn't.
