    I've switched parties in the past. I registered as a Republican at age 18, voted for Ronald Reagan twice and Daddy Bush the first time. Also voted for Bill Clinton, twice, and finally switched my...

    Oh, I've had 'em come during blizzards and leave their cars smack in the middle of the road since we weren't plowed out yet. For this one interesting pair, I really DID have to give them a formal...

    Exactly. I do think that the Internet has greatly enabled us to all join the "splinter group" of the moment, polarized against many such other "splinter groups." If someone asked, "What are...

    And THIS would be where so many dot-orgs shoot themselves in the foot and destroy their own credibility. As in, way to go PETA on that dog-napping deal.

    A lovely pair of gray Percherons is giving shoppers rides for FREE, compliments of the Downtown Merchants' Association of Westport, CT today (and last weekend, too!) Very popular, no hecklers! :yes:

    To check and see if the tree really IS broken, put the cantle up against your rib cage and pull vigorously on the pommel. If the tree is broken, you'll see flexing movement well beyond the norm in...

    I find the "news" these days more significant for what it does NOT report than what it does. You can pretty much assume you're hearing about 1/3 of the whole picture in any story.

    Based on what...

    About 97% of all of that drama can be prevented by:

    Screening potential clients and getting pro references;

    . . . and maybe Democrats only THINK they're smarter. Never, EVER forget that after all the ideologies get laid to rest, century after century--Darwin is still driving the bus. People who "get"...

    I do it for short hops to the trail head ALL the time; that said, my horses both have perfect trailer manners, and my saddles are 20+ years old. With a brand-new CWD or Hermes, maybe not. :winkgrin:

    Best post of the thread, and I've got the antidote for ya:

    "Christ" many scholars believe was actually a composite of two non-conforming teachers active around that time. "He" was not born...

    The world WOULD be better off without humans, and THIS thread proves it! :lol:

    Glad to hear it, but . . . :winkgrin:

    One thing I want to mention about "polls." That's a VERY self-selecting population they survey--on ANYTHING. Reason being, that they tend to call at dinner...

    What it comes down to is THIS:

    Which do you love more? This individual horse, or the idea of competing in dressage on him? Would you be fine with changing to pleasure/trail riding on HIM, and...

    Several times over the years, and in a couple of different disciplines, I trailered in for lessons. In both cases, it was because I was taking care of my own horse and vastly preferred his situation...

    Another vote for Western Horseman. If he has a care/veterinary interest, Equus isn't a bad choice either; a tad alarmist but a future DVM might love it. Horse & Hound from GB, AQHA magazines and,...

    Realistically? The post up-thread where someone quoted her NYC friend who hadn't even heard of the controversy reflects the majority of Americans. For 99% of non-"horse" people, this is a filler...

    Perhaps it'll STOP happening, once and for all, when the horse owners put together a class-action and sue the BALLS off the feed company that did it. Then they might decide it's worth a supervisor's...

    Doctoring: Hosing, soaking, bandaging, hand-walking, treating wounds and administering medication.

    I don't normally charge for it unless the job is extreme; but an awful lot of other barns do.
