    If your friends live in Corvallis, they probably know the good places to eat, but I like Sada for sushi and there are several pretty decent brew pubs (Sky High, Block 15, Flat Tail) with a range of...

    What Cowboymom said, with 2 additional caveats: Make sure to use a cinch hobble between the front and back cinches. It's what the ring in the center of the front cinch, towards the rear, is for, and...

    To know if it means anything, you need to know which association bestowed the title and in what class.

    King wasn't p-1, Wimpy was P-1. King was P-234.

    The horse is very heavily line-bred. This can be good if you cross him on a mare that is completely unrelated, as it can generate a form of hybrid...

    On the forums I have been to that are formatted that way, there is usually a little drop down arrow somewhere on the upper right side of the page that will let you change the viewing order of the...

    I second hoopoe, take the dress and yourself to a great department store or a specialized bra/lingerie store and get properly fitted. I had a strapless wedding dress and wore a long line bra/bustier...

    He has a spot on his head, so I guess you could call him a Medicine Hat. The pattern is usually produced as a maximum expression of the sabino complex of genes. They will sometimes also have a...

    Depending on your budget, look for something good quality, but used. Broken Horn, Champion Turf, Bob's Custom are all good. Chavez saddles are nice, too, but beware that there is a line of saddles...

    Beverly Beach is a really lovely State Park just north of Newport, OR, with yurts. With a preschooler, you'll want to spend a good part of the day at the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, anyway....

    No on the ocean swimming. Our ocean currents come south out of Alaska, so, brrrrr.

    For cabins/camping, maybe check out yurts at Oregon State Parks....

    In Newport, the aquarium is awesome, but the Hatfield Marine Science Center is also worth a stop. They are both on the south side of the bridge, same area as the Rogue Brewery. I would skip Mo's for...

    Personally, I see it as a good sign that they did, temporarily, change their employment rules to allow gay married employees. That tells me that there are people running the organization that are...

    You recently found out they discriminate against LGBT folks? There was a huge uproar in March when they changed a hiring policy to allow hiring of gays who are legally married. The backlash in the...

    The lead of their "apology" is as follows: "On behalf of SELF, we sincerely apologize for our inadvertent insensitivity."

    Old school proud flesh/cut dressing was fish oil and carbolic acid. I don't remember the exact ratio, but my dad does. It's actually pretty close to the original formula of Cut Heal, which worked...

    My theory is that men aren't used to feeling bad or off, so when they get sick, it's a major tragedy. Women get practice, most of their adult lives, at dealing with varying degrees of pain, nausea,...

    It could be an older vet. Some time ago, AQHA only recognized red roan and blue roan, not bay roan or any of the other variations. So, anything roan with a black mane and tail was "blue roan" so...
