    I love Amazon, too. I love being able to find books I remember from when I was a kid, many at reasonable prices. Used books are often a penny, and even with $3.95 shipping, that's cheaper than...

    Then why do we show horses? And why is it okay for us to pursue that sport, but not for kids to play a sport they love? different sport, but maybe the same passion.

    Pretty broad brush to paint...

    Or parents can teach their children how to be responsible, upstanding members of society instead of letting them learn from strangers playing sports on TV. I personally choose not to support these...

    Why not just ask "Why do we allow criminals to have jobs?" That's what being an athlete is...a job. If they have served their punishment for a crime or are awaiting trial (and are therefore innocent...

    They scored more than enough points with LEGAL footballs to win the game, even if the points from the first half were taken away (which I think they should do). So taking the win away seems a bit...

    What the sensationalists tend to leave out was that the team went to backup footballs in the second half, and those were checked by officials and were properly inflated. So the situation was, in...

    Our 4-H club went for a tour of the Southern States plant here this week, and they explained the steps they take to keep this from happening. They make several runs of cattle or other feeds after a...

    When the vet says to give it.

    Sometimes that's when I speak to him on the phone, sometimes it's when he comes to see the horse. I do not give it automatically without speaking to him first,...

    I have a couple of those old style string coolers that I found at a tack sale and they are awesome. Under a wool cooler (and yes, I still use the big square ones!), they can't be beat for drying...

    My TB is a Northern Dancer grandbaby. Sure, ND is everywhere, but having him so close is rare any more (my TB is 28). He also has Man O' War through War Admiral, Double Jay, and Black Toney, among...

    Both are at fault, IMO.

    Gelding owner should not have walked horse so close behind the mare for sure, that goes double if there was room to spare.

    Mare owner should not have left the horse...
  12. Is this really a steal of a deal? Blue Ribbon Saddles

    I was perusing the consignment saddles at the local tack store the other day and found this saddle--it's obviously older--my guess is 1980's or so. It's brown (bonus!), fairly shallow seat, plain...

    DVD's of several seasons of CSI, replacement lightbulbs for a ceramic Christmas tree, a six-inch USB cable, a CSI:Miami spin-off novel, a person-shaped sleeping bag complete with arms and legs, and a...

    I've known a couple and the one thing I do remember the most is that the episodes could happen any time, without warning. There's no guarantee that a horse will remain episode-free, even if it has...

    My dog stays home when I'm at the farm, and he's fine. The last time I took him, he brought home a nasty flea infestation that took weeks to get rid of and his reaction t the bites was so bad he...

    My favorite for getting them dry (and warm) quickly is old-fashioned, but it WORKS. I use a string cooler (which are HARD to find anymore, but IME, they work better than the Irish-knits) under one...

    I have and have had no issues; it did the job it was supposed to do, no complaints. I've had great experience with Cox products overall. Both the horses and the dog do well on their joint...

    They may have changed since I had mine, because it was three computers ago, but I would run far, far away from an Acer. I had so many issues with mine (most of them right after the warranty ran out)...

    See, I don't see it that way...quite the opposite. I hate that some of them, no matter how many well-meaning rescues there are, are going to die in shelters. Unfortunately, until the world changes,...

    I'm with the "way too high" camp. The highest adoption fee I've ever paid to a rescue was $300...for a HORSE. For a dog? Nope, sorry, not when I can spring one from any county shelter for $100 or...

    So...did some digging online for alternatives and one site said it works fine (possibly actually better) if you do it in intervals of 10 seconds plank, 3 seconds rest. I was able to make the three...

    Thanks for the input. Interesting about the old shoulder issues--I hurt that shoulder years ago, but it's never given me any issues until now. Apparently this is just hard on it. I wonder if I...

    I know many think that rehoming a horse at his age is the wrong thing to do, but if he's sound and capable of doing a job, then I think it's fine, and personally, if I was looking, I'd snap him up in...

    Having had shingles (my case was mild and it was still horrible!), I would get the shot if I could to diminish the chance or severity of a second round. Last I knew, though, it was only approved for...
