    The thick nylon ones with two colours (preferably the most garish available so it does not get mistaken for someone else's) twisted around each other and a regular snap. Very durable. They disappear...

    Saul Good was great, we also went to a hole-in-the-wall cocktail lounge that I can't remember the name of that had $4 Bloody Mary's. As Canadians who are used to paying through the noses for drinks,...

    I have bitten into the part of an apple that my horse bit into.

    I've also ingested a piece of manure that flew into my mouth while I was watching a horse show and then took a bite of my sandwich...

    Because I know I can eventually work through it. My instructor says we all go through periods when we're afraid. Some of us, like me, more than others. She can talk me through almost anything, bless...

    I echo the comment about making sure to get the horse's number. BTDT... now I always ask the rider for the horse's number if, for example, the number is on the side away from the booth as they are...

    I wouldn't personally, unless it were a very, very casual fun-type show. One of the purposes of light coloured breeches is so that the judge can see your legs against the saddle. I would go with dark...

    Thanks very much, everyone!
  9. Recommendations on longish side reins

    Anyone want to recommend some side reins on the longer side, leather and not too expensive?. My mare has a long neck and she's a TB, so possibly claustrophobic. I'd like to be able to start out with...

    It hasn't happened since then so I have no pix.

    Re bats, populations have been decimated in this area--you hardly see bats these days--and this time of year they are still in hibernation.
  11. I have a gelding about the same age as your mare...

    I have a gelding about the same age as your mare with a similarly frustrating history. In his case, it was a problem with the LF hoof, X-rays showed navicular, although he was intermittently off, he...
  12. Chestnut mare: I'm a young, feminine, dainty...

    Chestnut mare: I'm a young, feminine, dainty chestnut mare with a coat like a new copper penny, and I poop over my hind legs all the time. (I'm much dirtier than my owner's other horse, a grey...
  13. No to this and other suggestion above due to the...

    No to this and other suggestion above due to the place (on the top of the butt) and the fact that it was not smeared.

    Didn't take a photo because I didn't start thinking how strange it was until...
  14. Yes, I think you spelled pupae correctly! ...

    Yes, I think you spelled pupae correctly!

    Here's where the barn cam would come in handy.

    It's a new turnout, unlined and no holes. Not pupae but definitely poop-a of some kind.
  15. No poop this morning, of course! If I see it...

    No poop this morning, of course! If I see it again, I will take a photo. I suppose it could have been rat poop, although I hate to think about that. It was quite fresh and soft and didn't smell or...
  16. OK, kitten it is, I guess. Plenty of those around.

    OK, kitten it is, I guess. Plenty of those around.
  17. Barn is low key and doesn't take off blankets--it...

    Barn is low key and doesn't take off blankets--it is a turnout sheet, actually, not a blanket. This has happened three times in a row (with fresh poop each time) when I removed the blanket.
    I...
  18. Mystery: strange animal droppings on mare's back--under her blanket!

    My mare wears her blanket all the time, in the stall or in turnout, unless of course she's being ridden. The last three times I have taken it off to groom her and tack her up, I've found a bit of...
  19. I have the Rambo Wug on both my TBs, both of whom...

    I have the Rambo Wug on both my TBs, both of whom normally take a 78. I had to go up to an 81 for my gelding, who has linebacker shoulders and a very well sprung barrel, but the 78 fits well on my...
  20. Both my TBs are unraced; the gelding had lots of...

    Both my TBs are unraced; the gelding had lots of exposure to things at a young age (track training, polo training, etc.), the mare spent most of her 5 years in a field (similar to warmblood...

    I'm a VLL (very low level) dressage rider and I love my TBs.
    Their body type suits mine (I prefer narrow horses), I love the classic look and, above all, I love the brain, heart and bravery of a...

    I love my Epona wide-toothed comb. I have to be careful because my gelding has about 25 tail hairs (I use it only after I have untangled it by hand and applied some product--like the Canter mane and...

    I was wondering about another possibility. If there was some kind of mechanical failure like a sudden decompression and the crew knew the plane was going to go down, could they have pointed it out in...

    My trainer saying to me and two ladies I ride with (all over 60 or close to it and late in life reriders) in a lesson, "if I were you, I would have given up a long time ago." She had prefaced it...

    After cleaning the boots throughly, I put on a couple of coats of solid black boot polish that comes in a tin (think it's called Parade Wax) on the parts of the boot that are NOT next to the...
