    This is what my horse sees in her head when I take out the pulling comb.

    You'll need to be creative in finding ways to snap her out of it. This is the real virtue of a leash, especially if it's rattly. You could try a can with some coins in it. Animals usually find that...

    Anise/licorice anything.

    Scratches on her belly and the crease between her leg and udder.

    No good deed goes unpunished, indeed. Your poor friend :( Perhaps the horse owner will come around when she gets a little time to process. I hope so.

    Unfixable. Give up now. In fact, just send her my way, and I'll take her in as an act of charity.

    I also live in Boston, and experienced the exact same thing, FWIW.

    If it were me, I'd take him at his word, and enforce boundaries about what I believe a friendship between a man and a woman entails. The latter part of this is what will keep you from being or...

    I was hoping to hear from foot-twins! All of these options, while comfortable, are probably too heavy to be versatile enough for work. I probably shouldn't have said anything about Danskos, because...

    Help! Shoe advice

    I can never seem to find work-appropriate shoes that are honest to goodness comfortable, except for my Ariat paddock boots (see "work-appropriate") but maybe some of you can help me. I have smallish,...

    Great advice here. Riding should be fun. I'd say if you can find even an unproven instructor, or one in a different discipline, that would be preferable to continuing as you describe. I know how you...

    Bold mine. This topic has a tendency to get quite heated when it comes to inducing labor in humans, so I'll leave it at this: I believe you are mistaken.

    Hm! That's exciting. Where is this extensive research, though? Google and PubMed didn't bring anything up.

    Creative saddle stand ideas?

    My saddle is moving into my bedroom, which is spacious enough for a saddle stand, but will not permit a wall-mounted saddle rack (I'm a renter and my walls are plaster). Any creative ideas? The metal...

    I kind of agree! I mean...in certain circumstances, just because it hurts doesn't mean it isn't better than the alternative. The hyperbolic example of having a limb amputated comes to mind.

    Shock-wave and the news

    Expecting to live to regret bringing this up.

    I don't have cable, so I've been reading some of the coverage of the accusations PETA has made against Steve Asmussen and Scott Blasi. The quote below...

    Ditto. I think the cardiovascular stamina element comes in with the Morgans, for reasons you've described. Also, the hair. In my experience, they don't suck back or give up when they're getting worn...

    I think Olivier's folks have some experience with this. They had a very cute mare there when I visited. Being in VT, there are just a lot more Morgans around.

    I rode a wonderful Morgan/Trakehner...

    I work in Boston. My to-work commute is 20-40 minutes, walking + subway. I read on the subway, so I don't really notice if there is "traffic". Road rage is a huge sap on a person, while a walk is...

    I dunno how he got a reputation for being ugly. I think he's a fine looking horse, and his fittings really suit him.

    No. What you're describing has nothing to do with manners. Manners are specifically made to save you in awkward, uncomfortable, or unpleasant circumstances. End of sentence.

    Second Malda. Crotch sore doesn't go away. If you have to pinch your with your knees to keep from bruising your goods, this saddle is not for you. I'd cut my losses and get it right back on eBay....

    Just another voice for hock - right hock. My horse has an almost-fused right hock and her right lead canter departs are what sticks.
