    I know the new facility has made people a little nuts with selling property, but I can't believe the prices you've been quoted in the Tryon area.

    It's the deeded trail access driving the price up.

    As a life long Colts fan, I'm kinda flattered that they thought they'd *need* to cheat to beat us!

    We'll get 'em next year!

    I have read most of this long thread, and want to add my very humble voice, because I am your customer-a sixty something rider, with enough time and discretionary income to ride as long as I am able....

    My pony has great feet, is sound barefoot, and just goes better with front shoes.

    If you think the rock dust stings your pony's feet, you could use a sole hardener like Keratex and see if that...

    Pinstripe.

    My dad always pulled for the Yankees. Being first generation Italian, he was a big DiMaggio fan.

    Centerfield. Isn't the centerfielder supposed to be the best athlete?

    I have my TB's pedigree up on the fridge alongside California Chrome's, with the seven horses they have in common highlighted.

    Yes, it's silly, but it's still fun. Cloudy, my Dutch horse is a...

    Forget #3. If she doesn't respect your goals, and doesn't like your pony, you'll never get the best of what she offers.

    #2-maybe she knows something you don't. Do you like how her horses go? ...

    The hedge at Harmon Field in Tryon was boxwood, and it was beautiful. There were maintenance issues, poison ivy and wasps as I remember.

    We planted loblolly pines around my arena, meaning to...

    Yes! Knitting sundries, books, iPad, pillows, afghans (the knitted kind!) Jack Russell with her own sub nest of chew toys, and an ancient, partly conscious cat. Once the cat is settled, I'm stuck...

    If you figure it out, OP, let me know. At age 50, my body went from athletic to old in 3 months, and I resent it to this day, 10 years later. Strength and stamina gone, restful nights gone, and if...

    My two favorites:

    "It costs as much to take care of a good one as a bad one." Every horseman knows that's the truth.

    Happy New Year, COTHers!

    I am drinking "champagne" recommended before Christmas, and you didn't do me wrong-the prosecco is yummy and as economical as requested.

    It will be an early morning, we...

    I'm going through this situation with my 87 year old mother right now. It's heartbreaking, and exhausting on a day to day basis- but, on the other hand, she got her Christmas presents 3 times, and...

    I am going to chime in because of what I've learned working at a feed store. Many horses can be spooky on feed with high NSC-starch and sugar, in other words. You can feed a high quality, calorie...

    A chambon is not the first thing that comes to mind when I think about a horse behind the vertical. I would not want anything on him to mechanically "set" his head and discourage his going forward,...

    I take lessons because I mean to ride as long as I can sit up. In order to remain safe and effective and fair to my horse, I need a knowledgable person on the ground.

    Thanks again, everyone. I'm off to the store with a list in hand.
    After hunting tomorrow we are having a pitch in breakfast in the field, and I'm hoping to take some of the above suggestions with...

    Obviously you have not seen the horse I hunt!

    ETA:Thanks to eveyone for the suggestions.
  21. Good, Cheap champagne? Any suggestions?

    Anything a little better than grocery store, but costs less than a riding lesson?

    If he is still so sick that he does not have his normal short term memory, then I would tell the ex to send a card or flowers, and wait until he gets home to discuss a visit.

    He has 22 starts, and he doesn't appear broken. If the vetting looked good, and the history is good, I wouldn't worry. What are you planning to do with him that will be harder than what he is doing...
