    Standardbreds are just so cool! I grew up with them in MI, but here in WA you seldom ever seen them, as they don't have the trotting tracks like they do in the midwest. They are so often forgotten,...

    My Siamese, Sable, likes to drink from the toilet, too. Problem is, there's something in our water that gives her the itchies. My barn cat, Diamond, is unaffected, so it's got to be the water that...

    I would suggest Austin, TX. Yes, it gets HOT there but there are a lot of things going on: Third Coast Eventers, Dressage, Endurance. The winters are mild. The downside is they've had a decade of no...

    Sketcher,I can't understand why you are so confused by my question, nor why you felt the need to sneer down your nose at me. That was rude and uncalled for. This forum is for questions to be asked...

    That's Dollar. He is as stolid as a rock. The only thing that seems to motivate him is food. You can touch his chest, push on it, get a block and tackle and try to pull him back...and if he doesn't...

    Dollar is not aggressive. Far from it. He's not mean or aggressive, just a big hog for attention. I think you could clobber him with a baseball bat and he'd just look at you and say what did you do...
