    So not impressed with Muck Boot Company.

    On Tuesday I posted on their Facebook about the lack of communication and copied and pasted the email I had sent. Within a few hours, they commented on...

    I'm at work and my coworker was just scrubbing at her leather purse with paper towels, complaining that it was dirty. I was like, no no, don't use that, I have something, let me run out to my car...

    Nay. The vaccine is not very effective, and horses who do get strangles after getting the vaccine may get a worse case of the disease.

    You should ask if they supply a step stool so you can see over the podium, or if you should provide your own :winkgrin:. I'm sure you'll rock the audition! A week or two ago, there was a guy...

    Yup, every year he gets more and more grey hair. Here's a picture of him from maybe winter 05-06.


    I have 3 horses... I generally ride the greenie most, except not since about December because...

    Clinic went great! The old man barely broke a sweat and wasn't the least bit tired--he could've easily gone another 45 minutes. Go figure, after 8 1/2 years together I really do know my horse ;). ...

    Thanks :). He's happy to see me and grabs the bit out of my hands when I hold up his bridle, so he's telling me that he's enjoying the work. I will definitely have fun and learn a lot!
  8. I understand where you're coming from; a lot of...

    I understand where you're coming from; a lot of people seem to think that once a horse hits 18 or 19, he's old and useless, so a 27 year old going strong probably sounds crazy. Nothing I say will...

    I'm not sure if you're kidding or not... But assuming you're serious--well, I guess I'm a daring person.

    OP, you need to make a fuss. I understand your husband not wanting to make a big deal, but this isn't just about him. By making this into the appropriately big deal, you'll be educating others...

    At the risk of sounding like a heretic.. My view of God can be summed up thus: "Seeing isn't believing, believing is seeing." One's sincere beliefs about God shape what God is to that person. So...

    That's what I believe.

    Why cats have nine lives.

    No offense taken at all! I'm the last rider of the day, so no worry that we'll need breaks and run into someone else's time. We've been working hard since Thursday and are doing reasonably well. ...

    Don't worry, he keeps plenty fit by dragging barn workers who try to lead him and making it abundantly clear that he Does Not Approve of being a beginner lesson horse :lol:. Yeah, he's not the...

    Hm, maybe I'll put on his lime green polos instead of the white ones...

    If I rode with Walter regularly, I wouldn't care how we look, but since this is my first time with him, I want to make a...

    False. Did you know that the Parellis tried to get him to work with them exclusively, and offered to pay Walter whatever he'd make from his regular teaching, but he refused because he was not...

    Ditto! I posted because I schedule appointments for people, and fairly regularly someone will ask for "an evening appointment, something really late in the day" and I'll offer them, say, 4PM (we're...

    Poll: What time is "evening"?

    Pick a start time and an end time. ie, START 5:00PM, END 7:59PM (so 8:00PM would be "night").
  19. How to stick out like a sore thumb in a clinic

    I got very lucky and am riding with Walter Zettl tomorrow... slots are pretty hard to come by, but lucky for me a couple of the usual riders have lame horses, so I get to ride!

    Pretty sure we're...

    My horse was 4/5 lame. I ended up taking him to Cornell where he was diagnosed with an infected bone cyst in his shoulder. 2.5 months on antibiotics and he's all better. If the problem is in the...
