    I was going to say pretty much what In_ did.

    The rescue also needs to be more selective about the images it uses for the thumbnail shots. Compare Suzy's thumbnail to Saul's -- which one would you...

    I bought one item that was not as shown on the website, but I'll be honest--it was a cheap, low-quality item to begin with, and I knew when I ordered it that it would probably break within a few...

    WordPress and Blogger are both good starter sites.

    I'd recommend setting up an account with both (they are free) and seeing which interface you like best. Their features/functionality will be...

    I roached my half-Arab mare's mane once... after I made her go around for a couple weeks with spikes in it.

    No matter what you do, your horse will not be half as embarrassed as my mare was.

    Long commutes are the rule, not the exception, in Houston. The city sprawls, and traffic is traffic.

    I live about 5 minutes from my barn, but my commute to work is an hour. Scratch that... with...

    KWPN registers harness horse types (Dutch Harness Horse) as well as riding horse types.

    When I was researching my guy's bloodlines (1/4 Saddlebred, 1/4 KWPN -- from harness horse lines), I got...

    It's a 17.5 W, but I think it may have been adjusted at some point because I'm not convinced it's a true W. So not an off-the-wall size.

    It's just as well it didn't sell last spring, as I'm using...

    I have a GG and was pricing it for sale (again) last spring. $600 is a good price, if it's in good condition.

    I don't know about resale potential, honestly. I've been trying to sell mine off and...
