    Thanks for the suggestions. I figured the easiest thing to start off with was the coolant, which was in fact low, so I poured some of that in tonight and we'll see what happens tomorrow!

    I keep navy, for clients who like it and my sister's good gray horse, and hunter green, for my horse's lucky braid.
  4. Why does my car's heat only work when I'm going above 30mph?

    This is a recent problem with my 2001 Honda Civic and I sincerely hope it is not going to be an expensive one. As above, car cheerfully blows hot air when going 30mph or up. Car blows cold air when...

    I love my winter horse. Tip is at his best between 30 and 60 degrees. He starts having trouble between 20 and 30- as he's gotten older his breathing has changed a bit. I don't ride faster than a walk...

    The horse being a stallion and normally a gentleman doesn't necessarily mean you need new barn help- any horse can get a wild hair.

    If you know the animal rears, stud chain over the nose (I...

    Our non-Pony Club barn kids (private school with riding program, both school students and community lesson riders) are expected to clean and figure-eight the school bridles after every ride to keep...

    Sister just picked up a lightweight Rhino turnout sheet, brown with tan check, to replace the 4-year-old Rhino her horse graciously tore in half. I find it feels less substantial than my Rambo of the...

    Oh no, daBear!

    Fingers crossed that this is the start of an uncomplicated recovery. That horse has earned one if anyone has.

    My duvet, of all things, is dry clean only.

    It has never been dry cleaned, but I wash it plenty. Cold water, gentle cycle, all good.

    You are a boarder. It is not your job to be a role model to anyone else's children. If the proponents of any other method of horsekeeping don't care for the example you're setting, they can use it as...

    Let's be real here. My pricey clothes are my horse clothes, because I would never in my life spend $150 on a pair of jeans but I will totally spend that on a pair of breeches.

    I also spent a lot...

    You're wearing breeches and a form fitting shirt, your hair is not in your face, your horse is adorable. Seriously, your horse is adorable. I want to give him a cookie just looking at him.

    Tip is coming up on 20 this year- 20 going on 2- and he has days where he feels better than he did at age 11. As long as I don't ask for the left to right lead change, which he tells me repeatedly...

    It's progressively getting lighter and lighter in the evenings here, and the horse is celebrating by cheerfully shucking off his Schnauzer guard hairs. Can't wear chapstick to the barn anymore.

    BELL BOOTS. S-M-L-XL. In pull on and velcro.

    Unfortunately, I don't stop in at one of the local tack shops as much anymore because every time I went in for something like bell boots, fly spray,...

    Growing up, I learned that loose hair was a potential danger when riding out as it could become tangled when passing under a low branch. I believe there were anecdotes told about someone out hunting...

  19. A question of sheer curiosity: Front feet cooler to touch than hind feet

    To preface this, because the first question anybody asks (and rightfully so!) is "what does the professional think?" the farrier isn't particularly concerned as long as the horse is sound, which he...

    Although Smartpak may be off the list for reasons of shipping, their house bridle line is made by Harmohn Kraft. That brand also makes other quality lines including the Americana and Aramas, both of...

    17-year-old with an old suspensory started lacking liftoff at the stouter oxers at the 3'-3'3" he was showing. I looked at his maintenance program and found it satisfactory- biweekly Legend, yearly...
