    I completely agree with this.

    I would go the third way, which is not to ignore the letter, nor to apologize. I would just write/say something along the lines of "I got your letter, and I want you...

    A great science teacher had sixth graders do a report -- my son chose whales. She gave the kids a sheet with the various formats they could use to present their report: a skit, a poster, a paper, a...

    Which is exactly why it would be red flag for me if someone I didn't know but who wanted to board with me seemed overly interested in my insurance situation!

    However, in this case wouldn't it be...

    Trubandloki you made me laugh out loud.

    Gumtree -- get a quote from Broadstone. My experience has been that the insurance is excellent and inexpensive (relatively speaking).

    Excellent advice!

    I just noticed the OP's location. It is between me and NYC and it is EXPENSIVE -- one of the most expensive in the nation. I do not see how anyone could own a horse on a...

    Aaaaahhhhhh! The dreaded Science Fair!! (My 6th grader has it this year).

    My kids go/have gone to rigorous private schools, so their experience and mine is very different from public schools...

    No, I must have been unclear. I emphatically do not mean you need to spend, or that you get better care, at a place with chandeliers in the aisles that charges $2,000/month (sorry, there's a barn...

    It is funny I read this thread today, as I'm waiting for Crop Production Services to come spray my field with herbicide!

    I board horses, and have over 20 acres in pastures. So, not the 100's of...

    I would have thought many people would be THRILLED to have you not only love their horse, but ride their horse for them!!

    The trick is you finding them, and them finding you. I agree that cold...

    What an exciting time for you!

    My all time favorite Caribbean island is St. John.

    You don't need to make a decision today. You haven't actually been offered the job, so right now you don't actually have a choice :-) (I do the same thing -- I'm much farther down the road than I...

    I'd try and find a free lease for him, so he gets attention etc (and it sounds like many people would appreciate having a horse like him). I say free lease, because when it is over you always have...

    I don't know about your climate, but I can have extremely overgrazed areas -- like my dry lot which in the past was mostly bare -- and if I leave it alone the grass comes storming back. I do...

    tbchick84 has good advice.

    I also like Rhinebeck/Red Hook, like Angela Freda, but I live 45 min. east of them and it would be more than an hour to Stamford for me, so you'd have to allow 2 hours...

    Cherry's advice is spot on. Definitely get an extension agent, or another expert out to give recommendations. I have an 11 acre field that's being taken over by a weed called bedstraw. A soil test...

    If you don't want to waste any hay, you could put your flake in a small hole hay net (ideally under shelter out of the rain) and that way it is there if she wants it, and not spoiled if she doesn't.

    The pasture board situation at your farm sounds not great, I agree. Just want to point out, though, that your BO's costs are mostly tied up in the cost of land (mortgage? taxes), maintenance, labor,...

    I can't comment on the causes of thin soles, or alternative diagnoses, but one of my retirees has very thin soles and gets very ouchy easily. I manage him by painting durasole on his soles every day...

    I told myself I knew how it would be, that this was exactly what every parent wants, that I would NOT be upset, it would be fine, this was good.

    Yeah, well, a few days after we got back from...

    I also remember Miracle. I am so, so sorry that she had such a short life, though I am so glad that most of her life was as good as it could be for any horse. Onthebit, and Lori, you are my heroes.

    This wouldn't even be a question if you trusted your boarding barn.

    (I board retired horses and most of my owners are absentee).

    My donkey is the same as Jeanette's -- the lowest on the pecking order and absolutely positively not aggressive. I would never put her in with an aggressive horse as she'd get clobbered.

    It seems to me that this sub classification of the zoning has a material effect on the appraisal. Clearly, one cannot do an accurate appraisal without knowing the proper zoning -- and the appraiser...
