    Just did mine today in fact!! Easy peasy, at least in my state. $50 and it took 5 minutes online. Of course my DH blazed that trail recently so I just followed his lead.

    Ha!! You sound like me. I do put my kids to work now though. My 10 year old does the morning horse feeding all by herself (she earns a dollar a day for her allowance), and I make her do dishes when I...

    My experiences are mostly with our local store, but I have to say they are wonderful. I took back an easy boot that my horse had destroyed within a week, and was fully prepared to argue my case, but...

    It's not that hard to figure out how much your electricity costs. Look at your bill, or check out the company's website. The national average is $0.10/ kWh, and I am guessing that since OP's board...

    I have been horseless many times and have never found a shortage of horses available to ride. Network, network, network. Assuming your barn is not the only place in town, offer a free exercise riding...

    Happiness!!! We are on the other side of this story.... My daughter is the recipient of a lease pony whose owner is leasing him out JUST so he can have someone to love on him, and we feel so lucky!...

    I love google apps for our small business or 30 or so employees.

    But I am not a huge fan of the mail format either, so I still use Outlook. You can get a Google Sync To Outlook add-on that will...

    I like the optimism, but unfortunately, inconsistency of symptoms does not rule shivers out at all. In fact, it seems more to reinforce the possibility. I truly hope that's not the case though.

    I LOVE MY VET!!!!

    I am that person who interrupted my vet's Christmas dinner with an equine emergency.

    I let the horses out on Christmas Day to stretch their legs before a big storm moved in, and my older horse...

    I think that language is unenforceable and hard to define. What defines "lesse's care and supervision"? What if Dobbin cuts himself in his stall an hour after you rode - whose fault is that? No...

    Hey now. I ask my peeps to print for me. Not because I don't know how to print; I am not a moron, nor am I lazy, and I don't care about the "admin" stigma. It takes 10-15 minutes to print a big...

    Agreed. My NSH was gentle as a lamb around my kids, and completely bombproof. But he did not trust men, and was a handful under saddle.

    I am confused.... You wanted a horse that needed training, and that is exactly what you got. I'm not seeing anything in your friend's email that seems deceitful. Perhaps your friend misunderstood...

    My Nelson's have been a bit finicky. They are probably 15 years old now, and seems like every year I have one with a bad heating element or failed thermostat. Still beats lugging water in the cold...

    Big giant pile. Let it cook. It will magically turn into glorious dirt.

    Then in the spring, I put an ad on craigslist and give the whole darned thing away to gardeners.

    I see it as a term of the partnership between horse and human, not possession.

    I call my daughter's leased pony "her pony" -- as does everyone who meets him. When other adults speak to her,...

    I would avoid it. We used it for our driveway, and even with magnets, 5 years later I am STILL picking up metal bits. Thick wire, bits of rebar, all kids of nasties. I would not use it again. If it...

    No. If she had been training on that pony for months, she had plenty of opportunity to buy him herself. Unless this benefits you and pony somehow, you do not need to be financing someone else's show...
