    The barn is 15 mins from my house, 20 mins from the train station (how I get to and from work).

    The killer is my AM commute to work is 1:35, pm commute back is a solid 2 hours.

    I leave work...

    I agree - even with the 90 degree limit, it is HOT AS HADES in Las Vegas. Sure its not 117 every day, but its pretty damn hot.

    Maybe if they have carriages ONLY in winter - its just too damn hot...

    I would like to know the sample sizes of each - its a neat graph, but doesn't mean much with the information provided.

    NO!

    No way of knowing if it had a fall, if it was stored correctly etc. Your brain is not worth risking over a few $$ (especially when you can buy new, perfectly safe helmets for less - don't risk...

    so Sixpoundfarm - what do you think would be the best of the two choices OP had proposed? (now that OP has deleted their post). Try to get pregnant, and sell her with a very low probability of...

    I very very rarely get off to kick poop, that is because I can tell when my horse is going to go, and I get her off the trail!

    You can lower a stirrup, find some unlevel ground and put yourself up hill, or your horse in a hole. Find a fence, rock, or even the base of a tree to give you a few inches.

    :( oh, I am sorry he passed, but like others said, at least he was warm and cared for at the end, not laying in a gutter, or scared in a cold shelter.

    I say its a problem. Some multiuse trails around here have A LOT of manure on them, and I don't think its cool - even though I am a horse owner and rider. If the trails were covered in dog crap - no...

    I will admit, I am not a breeder - but get pregnant or be euthanized sounds pretty harsh. Do you not have any way to actually retire this mare? Sounds like she has produced quite a bit in her life.

    Knock on wood, I have never had a dog attempt to attack me, or my pet.

    And again - the Mega Tek isn't really just a hair conditioner. You are supposed to rub it into the tail bone (scalp!?)- and you can leave it in. It is almost like a "lotion" for the skin. Works well...
