    I find this a bit sad. Yes, it's a hypothetical situation, especially to those of us who are non-believers, but I find it kind of distasteful to think of exchanging a current life for a life lived...
  2. Whu? I didn't say I'd choose. I said hearing the...

    Whu? I didn't say I'd choose. I said hearing the term is like being dragged through a hedge backwards. That's not a choice I'd make voluntarily. If I HAD to choose, I'd choose the expression and then...

    Yup, and if we did them all the time and never allowed ourselves to enjoy petty frivolities like the nuances of language to describe a special relationship with a horse, maybe the world would change...

    Last night I had the broken necked giraffe on my hands because as we went around the far side of the track on what was supposed to be a nice quiet WTC stretchy evening, she said, "ALL THE HORSES...

    I think those of us that don't "get it" actually get it and the term just rubs us the wrong way, like being dragged through a thorny hedge backwards ... wearing a sheer Velcro suit. :lol:

    It's easier to say Heart Horse (all kinds of emojis) than it is to say, "This one was/is my favourite." It's like giving it a name takes away (needless) guilt of having a favourite. I didn't decide...

    Haha! In the past week I have ridden a cracked out galloping llama (maybe canter sets on the training track weren't my best choice that day), a horse versed in airs above the ground, and a hopped up...

    Heh, I was just coming back to suggest Burt's Bees. I have been known to put the cuticle cream - quite thick, comes in a tin - on my lips in the winter.

    Kitchen scale, bathroom scale, luggage scale. It is not hard to weigh feed.

    I like a kitchen scale the best because you can set a container on it, zero it so the weight of the container doesn't...

    Haha, you may appreciate this. I went into the ER one holiday weekend with shingles pain (was already dealing with that, but Mutha, there ain't nothing that kills it) compounded by cellulitis on a...

    We can tell someone to do something but until we teach them how to do it, they won't learn it.

    Telling someone to calm down will never be as effective as giving them the tools to calm themselves...

    Just popping back to say, I always tell people if I'm swearing a blue streak, I'll be fine. If I'm really quiet, take me to the hospital. But, I'm a grown up and get pissed off at things that hurt...

    Horses can absolutely be territorially protective. My great big guy once got a skunk so fast it didn't smell. The very large hoof print on the squashed body gave it away.

    I've seen them be...

    There's your answer right there, sort of. Age, experience, figuring out you're not going to die when you hurt yourself. She'll get over it.

    Also, fear can make pain worse.

    Barriere and Barielle are regular hand creams. They are about the only thing that work when my hands decide to crack when I've been too stupid to wear gloves in the winter. Maybe the mouth specific...

    Don't get over silk! just get over the idea of raw silk. There are so many nice, more durable silks (Dupioni, gabardine, etc.) out there to spend money tailoring meh fabric into a garment that won't...

    I'd be tempted to try Barielle or Barriere, or whatever skin barrier cream you can find on the cracks. Use it every time before tacking up and again after untacking.

    Bits - low palate PITA mares?...

    Raw silk is not that formal and not necessarily as tough as you might like for a riding jacket. Plus, the natural gum in it will pull every bit of dust and dirt out of the air and cling to it like...

    I think perhaps you may be hanging out with the wrong people. Plenty of ULRs get their horses out of the ring and onto the trail, the track, the meadow, etc.

    I maintain that concentrating more on...

    What is on the horizon? Of course they should be concentrating on the horse underneath them more than on the horizon. They are not riding the horizon.

    Head slightly down is not the end of the...

    Thank you for saving the embarrassment of calling my vet's office AGAIN. lol
  22. How many days to treat with Omeprazole post show?

    My horse has a history of ulcers so I treated her prophylatically ahead of a show last weekend. I dosed her again on return to home and again last night and plan to dose her again tonight.

    How...

    A household broom head (like Oskar that has the screw in attachment) attached to an extendible paint pole.

    Countrywood inadvertently brings up a point. When "normal" bedding is being discussed, we are talking what the mat and mattress companies have told us is ok/normal. It's normal for now because we...

    Offer to buy more bedding AND to clean your stall yourself with no discount off your board. Insufficient bedding, no matter how nice and cushy the mats, is unacceptable. This has not, to my...
