    I use the ring on the wall of the trailer, above the chest bar. I tie the haynet to a ring just under the window. For us, it's never been an issue.

    I tie (with a breakway tie and she wears a...

    Well, frankly, my time-management suggestion is to get rid of a boyfriend who doesn't understand that you might have passions other than him, and that a person might even to continue to develop more...

    I will play devil's advocate and disagree.... with a few caveats.

    You will probably work just as hard at either place. So you can be working hard and earning x, or you can be working the same...

    "Silly did not even blink, just glared at me. Like "you've got to be kidding me".

    Oh, good. I feel better to hear that she had her Arab on, as well as the feather. My horse would have given me the...

    Silly's expression in the picture with the little girl on her back is worth a thousand words of praise. What a good girl. I don't think there are words to sum up an Arab mare; they are magic.

    A couple of ideas, though I don't drive so don't really know anything about it..... You could try calling Green Mountain Horse Association in Woodstock, VT and asking them for contacts. You could try...

    I always thought bare was best, when it came to traction on pavement..... Metal shoes or studs on pavement is a bad thing, I was taught. I would leave him bare unless you notice a huge problem.

    Wellllllll.... I thought it was a sweet, gorgeously filmed movie, but really kind of just a predictable commercial for attractive people talking about food.

    Well, my horse cost less than her off-the-rack saddle, and she is worth her weight in gold, so they are out there. I think you would need to stop looking in the Endurance world, though, and start...

    Many times. However, once was when we were out on a trail, just the two of us, and we had stopped so I could read the map. Mare put her head down to scratch her leg. I lost the reins, they flopped...

    I saw that video posted by Snicklefritz and my immediate response was, "Asshole. He does not feel my pain. That is _so_ not my reality." :-)

    But, I would agree 100% that many horses will have...

    Awwwww, I love "The Core." I didn't think it was a trainwreck at all. I thought it had some great lines. I don't care for Hilary Swank, but I found her easily forgettable because of the rest of the...

    Find a used Brenderup or look into the other European-style trailers that are more available, and be happy and don't worry.

    I tow with the family minivan, so I'm jealous as hell of your Mercedes....

    OP, buy the individual horse, not the stereotype. If it's a great mare, get her. If it's a great gelding --- not that...
