    Okay I am going to be a bit of a wet blanket (and please do not take personal offense OP - I like you!)

    But PLEASE be prepared to sit things out, or remove yourself if you can't keep up or if your...

    I agree - UZIS are NOT TOYS. They were designed for one purposed, and one purpose only. To kill people.

    Personally, I think marketing killing machines as toys and entertainment is not the best...

    I am still on the commuter train making my way home at 6 pm ;)

    I usually don't get to bed much earlier than midnight - I prefer not to eat my last meal 6 hours before bed.

  5. What type of boarding situation is your horse in?...

    What type of boarding situation is your horse in? Pasture, stall + paddock?

    Personally - I am a control freak when it comes to my horse, and I would feel uneasy just leaving her with people...

    Hahahah my husband does the same thing - stirs his greek yogurt - ahhh!!! WHY?!?

    I don't know if I have ever given a "hard" hour to these terms. Part of it depends on the time of year - amount of light for me. Plus I am a "late" in the day person (tend to eat dinner late etc).

    I agree - much better analogy. This wasn't akin to a "regular" old car accident. It didn't make the news just because it involved a gun.

    About 500 children die from gun shots every year in...
  10. I don't understand why a young child would need...

    I don't understand why a young child would need to learn how to handle a mass killing machine. Last I checked, UZIS are not used for deer hunting, or home protection.

    Well - the weapon did do...

    hum, what do you mean by "sliding stop"? An abrupt stop right before a fence?

    I don't know if I would say those are rider error 99% of the time - as there are some horses that just don't do it -...

    Thanks for the education on pasteurized milk Lady E! Reaffirms my decision to give up the stuff decades ago (maybe THAT is why I "never liked" milk).



    And while I agree it is "sad" that many...

    OP - just want to say, you are not the only one left scratching their head on this one!

    I have noticed time and time again, "I am going to sale my horse" - I have NEVER noticed this beyond horse...

    Well, if the icing is going to happen under supervision (its NOT something you can put on and put the horse away) - there are many common ways to achieve that. If you do not have a freezer or ice...

    SO off topic- but the crawly parts are the BEST part!! So bummed if I don't get the feelers - I will even specifically request that I get the "tentacles". Apparently as a child I liked to let one...

    On public transit (don't know about the pee'ers! flush a bunch?!):

    For phone talkers - I STARE, I clear my throat to get their attention and stare some more. I get in their field of vision. I...

    I know several people who are estranged from their parents (my sister / mother being one of them).

    And for EVERY SINGLE one that I know about - there HAS been abuse / drugs involved.

    Honestly...

    Ice packs are not viable solution for stocking up due to lack of exercise. Ice packs should not be left on a horse unattended, or for long periods of time (they will either melt, get warm - or if...

    Have you tried Brown Cow cream top? Its a bit runny, has a wonderful, thick topping of cream (buttery and fatty - great mouth feel). Flavors aren't as overly sweet as Yoplait or something like that...
  21. Cultured / Fermented foods.

    I LOVE YOGURT!

    I prefer greek yogurt, Fage is my favorite. I like plain with a little honey added. After switching to greek yogurt years ago - I can't stand "normal" yogurts any more, WAY TOO...

    From what you have told us, the horse is 28 and suffering. The owners are ignorant and cheap.

    Yeah - just to chime back in. My horse will have some sort of odd reaction and her hair will fall out with leather or neoprene girths.

    However, I can use a fleece girth for hours, and cover many...
