    The T-Post Post Popper also works with wooden posts. It just takes a chain wrapped around the post to pop it out of the ground.

    There are some good employers out there who don't try to extract every penny out of their human capital for as little as possible. But many employers treasure profit over worker lives and...

    I was just talking to a BASF ag chem salesman about herbicides for pastures. There is one for most broadleafs and brush that is relatively new that is called Clarity. It has a residual effect, is...

    Just noticed that Military Brush was a full sister of War Admiral. That's pretty impressive. MOW was a notable line in steeplechasing for years.

    Hunter style jumping is not good XC jumping. That's one reason event horses tend not to excel in sj; they need to change their way of going and that's very hard to do, especially when sj is AFTER XC.

    I graduated from law school in 1975, and starting salaries ranged from about 15k to 35k then. Today they they are about 8 to 10 times or more higher. Thus, from a compensation standpoint, employers...

    It's amazing that she has MOW on the first page.

    I believe that it is very good for breeding TBs to have the three foundation sires on the first page, which she does have. This gives you a great...

    This may be one reason why ERA wants eventing specific sj and dressage. IMO, except for the masters of eventing, modern show jumping and xc require different types of horse; you wouldn't want to...

    I seem to recall that Shibas were fighting dogs in Japan--or am I thinking about the next one up in size--the Akita? I know they are all hunting dogs of one sort or another.

    There is a Norwegian...

    I'm now working on Hammond Innes. Lots of thriller/suspense/mystery in exotic locales. Quite decent reading, too.

    If anyone is interested in an EXO, you could use the VTO 20% off and get a $600 vest for only $450. They have sizes 4 and 5 still available.

    Unless I'm mistaken, National Zenith was exported to Sweden at some point and used in WB breeding there with some success. I'm not mistaken; I just checked.

    I've just had a brainstorm. Since it appears that the under 30 crowd of up and coming international riders are all born into uber rich families that can afford the cost of the sport, how about...

    If you have to work in these conditions, clothing is the answer. I live where it is always hot and humid, and here are the clothes that I have found to work.

    I don't know that I would want to use such a powerful herbicide on a horse farm in an arena that is used by horses. It is not labeled even for residential use or anything animal.

    I swear a simple...

    You can ride the Luhmuhlen course through Ingrid Klimke's helmet cam as linked on EN. It's fascinating because they also have running speeds on the left. Her horse went from as low as 185 mpm to up...

    You seem to be implying that show jumpers today can no longer make their own horses. Or perhaps you're implying that they don't have the time or patience to make their own. That's a sad thought for...
