    That is why my home page is google. I would rather try to pour hot butter up a wildcat's ass than try to wade through that crap they pollute the internet with. AOL is no better IMO.

    If you look at western saddles don't fall for the QH bars/Semi-QH bars/etc. schtick. There is no industry standard for bars in western saddles so what qualifies as one type of bars with one brand can...

    I'm one of the posters that mentioned it. I didn't mean it in terms of "since I can't see my horses 7 days a week I shouldn't pay the same amount of board". It was more in a sense of "I signed a...

    You can deglaze with boiling water if you don't want to put your roaster on the stove top as Ibex suggested. You'll get best results this way if the pan is still hot, water is boiling and whisk,...

    If you're camping somewhere with showers and toilets get a spot as close to the shower house as you can. Pick up a cheap pair of crocs or water shoes for showering. Check with the campground to make...

    Anybody reasonably handy with a knife and a leather punch should be able to throw together a set of safety fuses for you out of a scrap of leather. Added bonus, if you get a scrap of tooling leather...

    Since you are doing this for the health benefits here is a little tip:

    I had a grey and he loved a good roll too. A little Oxyclean in warm water took the grass stains right off. Deny him his after-bath roll and he would sulk all day long. :lol:
