    Ain't that the truth!!! Only dealer I knew of was a very dodgy horse-dealing chick out near Halifax, Nova Scotia - total crook, but being a sweet-talkin' purty blonde (well, she was back then -...

    The cats are lurking, sure enough, although the swallows just zip right on by, much to the cats' disgust.

    We've opened up the side of an old building attached to the house, and the swallows are going nuts trying to nest in there. We only pulled the side off yesterday, and today there are HUGE debates in...

    What a great thread!

    Another suggestion, not aimed at the OP, but, make sure your saddle fits your horse properly, with appropriate numnah or pad. Horses will often fidget a bit when the tack is...
