    Really? So if horse decides to be an asshole one day, takes off, dumps rider, and smacks into a fence and hurts themselves, that's really on the leasee? I don't want any BS about the rider not being...

    Yeah, definitely don't tell them about it.

    Send a nice thank you card, and let that be that. I did a quick Google just for fun, and they're 2 for $10, so don't feel like you're throwing $40 away...

    I think 60' is going to be tight, although maybe not if you don't have a lot of young horses. I know that I rode in a 60x120 indoor when my mare was 4 and 5, and everything happened FAST, and those...

    If they're homemade/semi-homemade, I think you're safe.

    Yep, this is exactly the sort of horse you place via word of mouth. Send a little write-up about him to every reputable dressage trainer in your area that you know....even better if they've worked...

    Baker Creek is amazing, and sends out a gorgeous catalog.

    Seconding TomatoFest as another great one. We grow over 150 varieties of heirloom tomatoes at my family's garden center each year, and...

    Because if a horse bucks, dumps their rider, and then trips over a fence or scrapes a hip on the wall, that's hardly the rider's fault.

    Horses are idiots. That's why it is important to insure...

    They're not officially my in-laws, but this is the eighth year they've been buying me gifts, so I'll add my story. Mine always get me amazing gifts and the reason is:

    They're one of those nice,...

    I am in the "dollar limit" (+ insurance if applicable) court.

    I free leased my nice little mule gelding, off-property. She was responsible for all his basic, routine care. I'd have to dig up the...

    Sheaths. :)

    I have heard that term too, and like I said, he is prone to stocking up in his back legs. This most recent time, the ground didn't unfreeze (from the miserable ruts of frozen mud) for...

    Intermittent Sheath Swelling

    I have a 17 year old QH gelding, have owned him for 12 years and kept him at home for most of those, so I'm very familiar with his "daily norm", health-wise.

    This summer, I noticed that his...

    What sort of budget are you trying to hit?

    Does she not do food, or expensive alcohol, or anything like that?

    Is there a reason you can't just ask what she wants? I'm sure my relatives look...

    $450 is not that outrageous for a full-repaint of the door, which is going to look the best. I think OP also said that it's an Audi? The paint they use is not always easy to find/cheap.

    A friend...

    We have an actual "pet cemetery" on my property, on a big hill, has been in place for over 40 years now, and is "home" to lots and lots of animal friends, from dogs to cats to bunnies. (The few...

    My 12x12 shed is usually shared by grumpy alpha QH gelding, and tiny wee mule pony gelding. They both stand in it together, all the time. This is great, because pony mule HATES the elements (of any...

    Good lord, how great can it be that you would fly to get it?!?!

    Have the seller send you an "invoice" through Paypal for the cost of saddle + shipping. Pay invoice. Receive saddle.

    It's the official headgear of the church.

    I'm not sure how a DUI factors in? Perhaps you did not understand the tongue-in-cheek nature of my original post?

    I dunno dear, if we're talking weird religious things, drinking wine that's supposed to be blood isn't the sanest thing either. ;)

    No, because I love my expensive calf-leather saddle and don't need it getting scraped up.

    But I know it's not uncommon, particularly in the fox hunting world.

    Is she bad about standing on the...

    I usually go to Whole Foods or my local co-op and stock up on good chocolate bars. Chocolove has one with crystallized ginger that is always a huge hit.

    To clarify, Habitat provides packages, they don't build. You have to find a local contractor (or do it yourself!) to put everything together.

    But I do highly recommend them. They are right down...
