    Mine go in the washing machine. I bought a used commercial washer and it is brilliant. I use the pressure washer on them first if they're really dirty. I've never had a rug embroidered so can't say...

    You can also soak her hay to remove some of the sugars from it. Soaking it over night will remove the most sugars.

    I'd be either lunging her on a large circle at a slow pace or walking her in...

    I lost Lilly to colic. It's an awful thing because you're so helpless. There was nothing I could do for her but watch and that will always bother me, I think. I don't think of her death very often...

    I've always felt that a short, sharp smack is better for a horse than constant nagging. My farrier rarely smacks anyone, but if he feels the need, he will use the rasp to give the horse a smack. It...

    A fracture and a break are the same thing. You might have a tiny fracture or a large one, that's all.

    I'd want more info before I made any decisions. I'd also want my own vet/a vet of my choice...

    I've found that a lot of nasty horses have pain. I'd put him on a bute trial and see if that improves things. I wouldn't want to take him on though- sounds like a no-win situation. Poor horse.

    I caught someone throwing rubbish into my truck bed. I knew where they lived, so I called there on my way home and posted it all back through their letterbox.

    I left a good leather headcollar out in the rain (by accident). Cleaned it like I would a bridle, and it's lovely and soft. I'd say soaking and conditioning is the way to go. You don't have to use...

    I've seen horses hook shoes on welded mesh fencing. IMO it isn't suitable for horses.

    I have a mix of stuff here- post and rail, which I love, but does take work. I also have hedges- ditto love...

    I think I am bracing- it was a bad habit of mine that I thought I'd fixed. Ugh. :no: I also think my back is sore from work which isn't helping.

    Thank you!

    I pressure wash mine every so often. Brings them up nicely. I dump a few buckets of soapy water on them first, then spray. I also put goggles and a mask on- I hate dirty water hitting me in the face!

    I stick mine in my jeans pocket. It's very slim and lightweight, so I don't really notice it.
