    And that means you're probably a very good one. :)

    My gelding is a dark bay. But the biggest sensitive wilting flower ever. I had to stop wearing a pair of boots because the wrinkle in the ankle...

    ^ I would guess that.


    I like to ride without stirrups when tight because I can swing and move my legs more and stretch out the various hip flexor muscles which tighten on me, and my horses...

    But when you're talking to someone whose post gives the impression she's got no desire to grow as a photographer, why would you push it?

    The OP's situation sounds like he probably WOULD like to...

    All those cameras will do what you need well beyond what you know enough to do. Point and shoots are still a better option for you, though, as with a dSLR you have to know how to pick the correct...

    Honestly, I'm glad it wasn't the HITS folks who bought it.


    They tended to buy up anything seen as "competition" for their elite shows and squelch it into nothing. Not that we've experienced...

    Yep.

    Sounds like you have a sensitive flower. With my sensitive flower I have to exaggerate that, and I can't use any saddle pads with very reinforced edges. My wallet does like that cheap $10...

    Yep, and I think often people forget that. I would say sport horse conformation is less "ideal" most of the time than what I was raised with in the stock world, but that it is more functional and...

    Honestly, a complaint of "blurry photos" tells me he's better off if you get him photography classes than if you get him a new camera. If he's really into it, he may then want to get a higher end...

    Danielle Bradberry, who was actually on the finale show if I remember correctly - at least was on this season, I just don't remember when.

    She won in 2013, recorded an album that year which sold...

    Nope. It's by the common relatives and the closest relative to them - each step away is how many "removed." So since the common grandparents on the OP's side, they're some sort of first cousin. ...

    *snort*

    I would have laughed hard at the original! And would have done something like that myself - it's common for my brain and fingers to miscommunicate.

    Funny. I've worked cattle and done games in western bridles with no throatlatch. No problems.

    I've found it seems like lately folks really leave the bits hanging low in their horses' mouths with...

    I don't know your horse, but with mine that's a flag of ulcers. I always joke that he's honest about his bucking, at least. Gives plenty of warning before any dramatic fits.... if he doesn't, it's...

    For my heart horse, yes. I would not be leasing or selling him in this situation. I would keep his best interests in mind and choose when it was time to let him go based on what he told me about his...

    My two dressage horses: both are sensitive with fairly low palates and want soft, soft, soft from their bits.

    Both were in happy mouths for a while, the older one because he had bit issues in...

    Except that some people call gel nails, a "gel manicure." I don't, but have seen and heard it done, just because it helps add to the confusion. ;-)

    Again, gel *polish* and gel *nails* are two different things. A gel manicure is usually just the gel polish (but different places use different names, so I will not claim that's always the case!) ...

    I thought Matt was clearly most deserving, but this year had a ton of talent and many were worthy of a win.
