    My horse is most definitely grumpier, and requires a nice long, slow warm-up when it's cold outside. He's 15, so I wouldn't be surprised if he had minor osteoarthritis that gets achey in the cold....

    I kept my rescue's name ("Fergie"), even though I didn't particularly care for it at first. It definitely grew on me, because she is a total NON-diva, so I think it's kind of funny that she's named...

    Growing up, there was a young boy at my barn (a couple of years younger than I was) and he CLEANED UP in everything from short stirrup to the pony hunters and beyond.

    Not because he was a boy....

    As someone who is perpetually single, I can sympathize. I see people in my age group starting to get real serious about love (engagements, marriage, etc.) and it makes me feel like I should be doing...

    I have found that very simple dressage (shoulder in, haunches out, etc.), circles (including the spiral-in, spiral-out), and LOTS of transition work has really done a number (in a good way) on my...

    Can't think of any really specific examples, but I've never really had a bad experience with a partial lessee! And I've had about 6-7 over the 6.5 years I've had my horse. Some were for showing...

    My childhood dog was diagnosed with diabetes when he was around 8-9. We managed it with insulin shots (which quickly stopped his accidents in the house). He was always a sleepy pup so we didn't...

    I'm a big believer in doing what makes you (and the horse) happy. No sense in spending all that money showing if you aren't enjoying it!

    Like others have said, you may not actually have more...

    I don't clip my horse anymore, but I never gave him time off when I did in the past (and my TB is SUPER sensitive). Probably not a bad idea to give them that day off (or ride before you clip) to let...

    One problem with a vet reporting it is that they were not present during the attack, so I'm not sure how much weight their report would hold.

    This. I have a strong suspicious that for non-televised adoptions, someone other than Tia does the home checks.

    It definitely depends on the horse. My guy has done a few IHSA shows with varying results. I found out pretty quickly that he was NOT okay with novice fences (those riders were more likely to hang on...

    Agreed that turkey isn't my favorite (ok well the dark meat of a good turkey is pretty good), but I LOVE the side dishes. Sautéed green beans with garlic, sautéed broccoli with bread crumbs, sweet...

    This is a pretty outdated way of thinking, keeping them in pain so that they "know not to move/destroy the incision."

    Here are AAHA's current pain management guidelines (if you search the PDF, you...

    A perineal urethrostomy is when they actually reroute the urethra to the perineum (near the anus) to avoid the "hairpin loop" that it normally follows to get to the penis, with the general idea being...

    As many others have said, my main lesson from competing IHSA was learning to laugh it off.
    Sometimes, you get a draw that makes you look bad (eg. me, at 5'1, on a 17+ hand pokey warmblood)....
