    The thing is, these policy changes are not limiting my access to health care. I can choose to pay more for health care (to the tune of $15/month on my premium and $10/visit on office visits), or I...

    Ummm....No. Just no. "Hard left" = socialism. "Hard right" = facism. Even my ridiculously conservative Bible belt high school taught this concept.

    The Prestige is really quite fantastic, and, as said above, under appreciated. Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale directed by Christopher Nolan? Masterful.

    ^^^What pook said. No wrap on earth is strong enough to "support" a 1,000+ pound horse, unless you are wrapping so tightly as to cut off all blood supply to the leg in question. Personally, I have...

    Aside from being very high in starch, whole oats (or any "plain" grain, for that matter) do not have added vitamins and minerals to balance out their nutritional content to meet the horse's total...

    As LH points out, the hip HAS to be slightly inside in order for the horse to pick up the correct lead. It's a matter of just a few degrees, but they are very important degrees.

    If the horse really is just being disobedient (my Arab was the king of this!), then just ignore the behavior. Keep riding and pretend that the diversion never happened. Eventually, he will learn that...

    If you use the outside leg behind the girth to push the horse's hip over before asking for a canter depart/lead change, it really doesn't matter what you do with your hands.

    When I lived in Lexington, I rode with Sarah Meier at Punchestown Stables. She remains, to this day, one of the most professional horsemen I have ever dealt with. The farm now has an indoor (didn't...

    Every semester, the most difficult lab exercise for my students is the one where we balance rations. Why? Because they have NO basic math skills. I will say, "A horse requires a minimum of 1% of its...
