    Take lessons for a while longer, maybe half lease a horse.

    Don't get another horse until you regain your confidence with experienced school horses again.

    There is a no kill shelter about 45 minutes away. They 'grew' out of a vet

    If I see these dogs running loose and I don't see the owners, I will be scooping them

    lower in the water than the pasta strainer insert and I have room to do
    3 1 pt jars, or 8 1/2 pt jars in one go.

    I don't...

    Good to know ! I had the seals fail on an entire batch of hot pepper jelly and I'm still not sure why. I thought maybe it was because I didn't simmer the lids long enough. But I guess not.

    Rant: Please leash your dogs in urban areas

    I feel like I'm going to throw up.

    I ran over my neighbor's little dog this morning. Just a few days ago they were running up the street and had a close call. She was told by someone else a few...

    While this was an unfortunate outcome, at least she took responsibility for the problem. Too many people would not have been as responsible.

    My last rescue did NOT like other dogs. He had been attacked by a chow that was off leash 2x when I lived in the condo. He carried the scars on his face from that attack for the rest of his life. ...

    Honestly I think that more than a few people who want dogs do not really have realistic expectations nor good conditions for keeping a dog. Just the other day a local rescue group posted about a...

    I think you need to just sit down and talk to the owners about what needs to be done to improve this horse's QOL.

    Maybe put together a guestimate of what the improvements would cost (ie,...

    I do think you need to have a barn meeting with everyone. If someone can't make it, then set up a time to have a one on one meeting with that boarder. Or, they can call and you can put them on...
