    I wouldn't even consider a giveaway the same as a free lease. If you give a horse away, you GAVE it away. It's no longer your property. A free lease is in writing you're loaning your horse to...

    I notice that actual rescues (ie humane societies, dog rescues, etc) who use the "forever home" term also all have clauses in their contracts requiring if you can't keep it, it comes back to them. ...

    I just tried it. I got though everything except the pushup with rotation (I don't think I'm getting the concept) and the side planks (which I just dont' have the strength to do.) It felt okay at...

    To me, not remarrying is normal. My grandmother never remarried when my grandfather drowned the year before I was born. And I deeply respect two "flight test widows" with whom I'm familiar. They...

    You're dealing with Aikendale TB Rescue? None of these are going to be "off track" thoroughbreds in the sense of coming straight from the racetrack. And as ought to be apparent, with the rare...

    This. Dad the automotive engineer actually told me the last time I was dithering over the idea of buying a truck to get an automatic because there is nothing I can do shifting the automatic can't do...

    Uh...isn't right of first refusal supposed to be if YOU want to get rid of the horse, you call the seller and ask if they want to buy him back, not if the seller calls you the buyer and says "Hey, I...

    I've been tempted to try it with my horse, but I'd be ponying an OTTB with an OTTB. Both have been ponied, Lucky is in fact blase enough not to care much about what another horse does (he was...

    The ponies are FREE....to be sold off to whoever wants used pony-ride ponies if the operator can't afford to keep a string that's not earning its keep. Well played, self-appointed saviors of animals.

    You missed my point: I did not say put them in prison. I said the institutions would need to be based on prisons, especially in the philosophical sense. The object would not be curing, not be...

    Leave Paul McGann alone, the bad wig (and script) weren't his fault. And he came back to do "Night of the Doctor", which I enjoyed more than the majority of Eccleston and Tennant's episodes. (My...

    The institutions didn't just go away because of "stigma". A couple very notorious cases showed that conditions in them were way past inhumane--one, IIRC in New York, had naked patients sitting in...

    I would worry more about chain of evidence/provenance but, all things considered, he always was one of the more probable suspects, his known whereabouts track reasonably with the abrupt end of the...

    Apparently from what Sherman said, going out for a public work he thinks he's going to race and acts accordingly. And he looked really washed out in some winners' circle stuff from his Derby...

    Note to self: If I go hunting in the UK, don't take black coat, dig out old navy coat....

    And what do you mean old people and zippers? I got zippered dress boots when I was 20 (had to...

    I agree with OverandOnward and emelia--if he's been there for a few years and no one has any other problems than "he's topless a lot" and "he is obsessive about cleaning his horse's pen" chances are...

    The opinion of the vets was deep bone bruises turn into fractures if you pound on them. I don't blame Cot Campbell for taking the retirement route-he has the partners to think about, and no one...

    Yes, Homeless Handicappers posted a video from TVG. Personally I think there should have been a stewards' inquiry, looked like a false start to me!

    NYRA wants to investigate that because it draws attention away from the recent revelations they've essentially been stealing payouts from bettors.

    First one (Bold McKinnon, a 1985 model) was through a h/j trainer we went to when my parents decided to get me a horse and were looking for a more "English" trainer than the barn I started at. ...

    I read somewhere it was more like five had cardiac events. (Speaking of which, an eventer dropped dead of one at WEG, too, after finishing the cross-country phase.) And that the turf course at Del...

    If I were picking one of the two I'd take Candymaid (not least because she's got a decent female family in SA and I want a Leroidesanimeaux mare).

    I would totally watch races at that length every day. And forget the horses, imagine what the jockeys' legs feel like after riding that hard for that long.
