    Always very grateful for this day! I don't deal with the long winter nights, so will look forward to the teeny bit extra daylight I get in the morning and the evening.

    I have always dissolved them and MOST seem to eat them like that fairly readily. More water will make it less paste like and more palatable. Be sure to tell the staff to at least stir them up before...

    If I got creative, a few weeks to a month or so. I have lots of dried staples, but not a lot of easy access food, right now. I need to go to the store and re-stock, but not really interested in doing...

    Two things: 1) be sure to do SOMETHING to keep your body limber and mobile while away from your saddle. Yoga, pilates, anything that works on flexibility, balance, and core strength are all good. All...

    I've used Tildren on a couple over the years, to varying degree of success. I wouldn't hesitate to use it if the cash is there, but find that the biggest thing with navicular is very good shoeing,...

    Jenn doesn't travel south for the winter (instead she's stuck with the likes of me, with the ever present challenge of reforming former eventers...).

    My horse isn't terribly quiet under the best of circumstances, but he got practically unrideable this spring, unless I rode in the ring. I am usually happy to ride out just about anything, but he...

    For the ghost and paranormal stuff, I had an interesting experience recently. A friend is staying in a big, old mansion right now. I was there a few weeks ago, and he was giving me a little tour. I...

    CORRECT long and low work. Which means pushing from behind and over the back. If you're not sure how to achieve that, try a few dressage lessons.

    Plus, everything already mentioned.

    It will depend a little bit. How I am at my mom or sister's house will vary a good bit from how I may be while staying with a friend or family I'm not so close with (example: I won't think twice...

    I use mine daily, but I don't drink soda. I just have a serious fizzy water problem. The only flavors I've tried are the unsweetened water flavors, and I'm not a fan. Prefer plain or real lemon or...

    I bought a very gently used pair this season. I am so in love. While still not my favorite chore, the job goes very quick, and I don't feel the lingering fatigue I always felt with my ancient Osters....

    Yeah....that empath description is pretty damn spot on. Not 100%, but pretty near. The parts about putting up barriers and such. *raises hand* I am sure this is part of why I am militantly single and...

    Wow! A very cool discussion! I'm relieved I'm not the only one, but also relieved I'm not quite as sensitive as others.

    "Connections" with certain people

    Ever since I was a little girl, my mom has talked about knowing when it was her best friend or sister calling. Or would have them on her mind for a few days, then talk to them to find out they had...
