    8 zillion years ago, I took lessons from Jenny on my giant TB and enjoyed working with her.

    I'm not sure how old you are, or how long you've been showing hunters, but the "hunter braid" has not always been in existence.

    Cuter, yes, but easier to deal with? Bwaaaahaaahaaa. The 3 beagles I've had have been bigger PITAs than the 2 foxhounds. Much more likely to cause mischief. The cuteness doesn't quite make up for it....

    I leave mine on.

    It doesn't seem to track my riding as steps. I do enter the riding separately as an activity.

    I kept the horse van at a storage place for years. Maybe $30/month? It was not one of those chain locations, just a one-off place in a weird part of town. They had two big areas for vehicle storage....

    If the dog needed to go or be put down, I'd do so. I might not post about it to spare myself any negative commentary.
