    I'm pretty sure most women who have had abortions think about it for three days or more. The problem with the three day wait is logistics. It's not like there's an abortion clinic in every town. How...

    Well, anybody who's in the business of handling horses should be able to deal with the former, especially if they're using a chain shank to lead with. I mean, how hard is it to slam them quick with...

    DH had a 6' step ladder stolen at a Lowes. Lowes said too bad so sad and wouldn't even look at the security tape.

    As a rule we don't leave stuff other than 100# bags of feed in the back of the...

    I have to agree. The prices I hear people paying in the h/j and dressage world make me go :eek::eek:! I pay less for training/board that a lot of people pay for board alone. Yeah, ss is a bit pricey,...

    Have you been to the flea markets? In KY most all the guys with plants/trees at the flea markets come from TN, mostly from the McMinnville area. I would guess that they'd be at more local flea...

    Exactly. And trained staff also has it's breaking points. During a particularly bad evening of managements (we no longer use mechanical restraints), a fellow nurse demanded to be tapped out (she...

    About 10 years. I had to get a cell phone when we moved to this farm and the phone company was taking its sweet time burying a cable for a land line. Bluegrass Cellular was the only carrier that had...

    Or maybe it because we use minimal pressure and aren't hauling on the horse's mouth all the time. While some horses require quite a bit of snaffle, I haven't ridden one yet that requires more than...

    Sadly, Trak is pretty much correct.

    I work in psych. Some of them can't be saved, even the docs will tell you this. For the extremely violent cases, about the only choice one has is to heavily...

    Just because she doesn't want to be touched/haltered/whatever does NOT mean she was abused. I've had a couple of broodmares like this. I've got one now. I know her history- she was never mistreated...

    It sounds like the by-product of home-made biodiesel production. Methanol is highly toxic. When playing with methanol while making diesel, home-brewers are advised to have a water hose running "just...

    It depends. On a well broke easy horse it just takes a tiny wiggle side to side with your pinkies. But I've ridden a couple that needed a bit more shake to get 'em going, and to keep 'em going in the...

    My trainer would have heart failure if I were to run into a canter! Huge no-no, especially on a pleasure horse. And I say canter from a walk, but the reality is you stop and ask for a canter, most...

    Where and when I drive, it wouldn't be bad. I'd be more worried about deer than other vehicles. I won't be buying one (my car gets ~40 mpg), but for fuel economy and commuting in most weather it's...
  16. What do you think of these little cars?

    Elio Motors It looks a bit like a Can-Am Spyder all closed in. They say it gets an est 84 mpg highway, 49 mpg city. Apparently you won't need a motorcycle license or a helmet. And only $6800.

    My horses move to the rail with inside leg pressure from any gait. Inside leg has nothing to do with trot cues.

    Trot is easy. Pick up your reins, squeeze a little and cluck or say trot. For most...

    Cue for slow gait /rack on the horses I've ridden have been pretty subtle. Sit back, spread your hands a bit, say "slow gait" and maybe bump 'em a little (side to side) with your hands. It's hard to...

    Mowing, including bush-hogging. I also hate fixing fence.

    I don't pick manure from paddocks- the bush hog does a fine job of taking care of that. The reason they're outside is so I DON'T have to...

    Oh please. High price does not always mean better. Do you think they hire Joe Shmoe to do the surgery? The vets that work the clinics here also have their own local practices, and do the clinics as a...

    Around here, a neuter at a clinic is $40. The most I was quoted at a regular vets was $120. This is for a 40# dog. It would be a little more for a bigger dog, but certainly not $700.

    Heck, I got...

    I wonder if sending the offender a certified letter increasing board to several times the current rate would do the trick?

    Everybody around here rides (and everything else) in cut-out t-shirts, redneck style. At home that's my summer attire- not attractive, but cool and comfy.
