    My worst on the ground moment was coming around the corner that borders my property in my car and seeing my Hackney pony slip in the mud and slide right into the fence. Even from the road, I could...

    I've had a few, but I'd say the most frightening was when I took my then six-year-old daughter on a trail ride, and the saddle slipped while I was mounting a rental mare. I had recently started...

    What a cute mini! And I must say that driving saved my sanity (some might argue whether I had any to save, but that's beside the point). It broke my heart when I gave up horses due to my...

    Wish I were doing something unusual. Instead, I've been hauling hay out to my horse sheds for my starving horses (it's been at least an hour between meals), in the teeth of a crazy wind that is...

    I think it's fascinating and impressive that so many people on this forum speak multiple languages. That is certainly not what I encounter with people I know IRL. What is odd about that is the...

    Dang, rustbreeches, I knew there was a reason we should have come to Colorado sooner! Would have saved what little we spent on our wedding. We were living in California at the time, where (at least...

    For all who make assumptions that one's general political stance dictates feelings about guns (i.e., liberals hate guns, conservatives love guns), that is crap. Each individual has his/her own...

    Dani, what beach do you have in mind? You do realize we are not overly blessed with beaches here in Colorado, right? :D

    My niece got married on the beach in Santa Barbara, CA, and it worked out...

    Goodhors, I really liked your "know your horse" post. Everything you said is perfect.

    As for hitching alone, this is how I do it with a calm, well-mannered pony that I trained to drive myself:

    My native language is English. I became fluent in French and Spanish in school, to the point of taking college level literature classes in both. I took about a year of Italian (easy after Spanish)...

    My husband plows two driveways other than ours every time it snows. One person is totally disabled and the other was the lovely elderly couple next door. Now that we have an able-bodied person next...

    Most of my neighbors are wonderful (and I just ignore the few who aren't). We've lived in this house for ten years, and feel very lucky to have such good people around.

    I have a corner...

    The scariest encounter I ever had was waking up after sleeping under the stars in upstate NY (couldn't afford a tent). I woke to really bad breath in my face. I am very blind without my glasses but...

    I'm another one who drives alone all the time, and would never be able to go out if I depended on other people. My husband has no interest, my daughter lives a hundred miles away now, and my current...

    Oh, my--so glad I've mostly been able to avoid this kind of drama. I have only been a MOH once. That was for my mother (which seemed odd anyway), and it was a nightmare.

    I've been married twice....

    If someone offers to get coffee for me, I pay for mine and theirs. I can't go myself (due to disability--too far to walk), so I will darned well pay for anyone who is nice enough to go get it. But...

    Thanks for posting this. I am in Douglas County and one horse only goes out in my neighborhood, the other doesn't go out at all. But you never know what someone might bring in on their clothing.
