    I save an old lid and pour it in that. In that way, the liquid in the bottle doesn't get dirty from you dipping the brush in the bottle or from putting the lid you've dipped the brush in back on the...

    All my horses have been my heart horses, in the same way that my favourite horse colour has been the same as whatever horse I happened to be riding at the time. I have had a strong bond with each...

    We had a drastic temperature plunge here. My normally very steady workmanlike mare has been good under saddle, albeit a bit distracted (why is that pony lying down?.... trot around rest of ring.......

    I've found this one good--heavier than a sheet, it's lined and, although it doesn't say, it seems to have a tiny bit of insulation

    I use my birding binoculars (Swarovski 10 x 42), attached with a harness, so I don't forget them. Very nice to have at the races and occasionally an interesting bird shows up, too.

    Always had good experiences with them. I'm in Canada and their shipping is more reasonable than many (maybe because they're in Maine) and they have decent sales. Mean to stop by at the actual bricks...

    I put my 27 year old TB mare down in late September a few years ago. Although more or less healthy (aside from arthritis and a little bit of senility) she was extremely difficult to keep weight on...

    Probably too soon to be done under saddle but trotting poles (on the lunge, building up slowly) is a great way to condition after an injury. I used them on my guy because I didn't have any hills and...

    I tried this idea (with a Rambo turnout sheet and the quilted liner designed to go with it) on my mare last winter and it was an epic fail in turnout. Gelding thought it was fun to pull on my mare's ...

    Mine recommended a barefoot trimmer friend of hers for my gelding's foot problems but I ran, ran, ran away from that one.... But it is sad to see other people (usually novices or those too scared to...

    We had one last winter (or was it the winter before that....). My BO took pity on her but it didn't last long. She monopolized the busy indoor giving lessons and even a clinic (neither of which she...

    I don't know if there are other bricks and mortar tack stores around you but where I live, there are two main ones and a couple of smaller ones. The two biggest ones seem to focus on different...

    Completely legal in Canada, too. The rule says the vest must conform to the same rules governing colours for jackets (i.e. dark coloured or grey).

    Wow, this is an old thread, I completely forgot about it. The mare in question was euthanized three years ago. I agree with the "Goddamnit" interpretation and attention-seeking behaviour.

    Having been through this issue recently--an older, timid rider on a kind but relatively untrained horse with a huge, unbalanced, rushy, on the forehand stride-- I highly recommend a neck strap. I...

    Love the idea of the fair isle caps and can see them being a big hit with the young bird banding crowd, among others.

    LOL. We have them here but they are definitely on the way out, with hayfields disappearing and being replaced by field crops. I love seeing them sitting high on the telephone wires, so out of place....

    Another possibility for the wolf whistle is that sound that European Starlings make but I'm sure you're familiar with that one--not as musical as the Upland Sandpiper's song.

    There was a lady at my barn (she has since passed away from very invasive breast cancer) who was so encouraging to me, and to so many of us, with her kind remarks. I am chubby and she made my day......

    TB mares are the best! Had this happen to me when trail riding at a friend's place on my then six-year old mare (unraced). The first couple of horses stirred the bees up but they attacked mine. She...

    Mattes or Nu-Med (the latter has wool not sheepskin). Both come in a rnage of sizes and Nu-Med has specific wither relief pads. I use a Mattes for everyday and a Nu-Med for showing.
