    Terrible crime, but also what horrible reporting. I can't believe the editor allowed this hack to insinuate that the crime may be related to the family feud based on what "some in town" are gossiping...

    ditto. We are in IA-- super cold winters. When it's down in the single digits I will put on a infrared heatlamp for them to huddle under, and of course a heated waterer.
    Some breeds are more...

    I have about 20 layers and they're easy, fun, inexpensive. We also get 8-10 meat birds a year and process them ourselves. One thing that I haven't seen mentioned is that if you free range, you (or...

    Argh. Have been traveling and off COTH, and am astounded at the responses here. I never said or meant that a deep personal connection with a given horse (more than the usual love for other horses)...

    To your question about how to keep the stalls dry when power-washing, look at spill cleanup supplies. These sorbent socks can be laid across each stall door and will prevent (most) water from getting...

    Texting is super, super easy and I wouldn't give it much weight during the phase when you're just getting to know one another and trying to build trust. I know of a guy who was text-flirting with ...

    DINGDINGDINGDING! And there it is: "heart horse" is not about you distinguishing internally your own love among your own horses. It's about you judging that you love yours more than I love mine. ...

    Amen.
    I was sick of it already but decided I had enough when a COTHer described a yearling that she had just met as her heart horse. And therefore just HAD to buy it despite not being prepared...

    Do they have a copy of The Whole Horse Catalog? I've got an old copy that I'd be happy to mail out. PM me if you want it. It's not like some comprehensive treatise, but has lots of useful nuggets...

    Nice post, Wood snake. Totally agree with that strategy.

    +1.
    OP, let A move forward--you called her bluff and stood firm on No trial, and now she's doing what you asked of her. (Or, tell her No Sale now if she's flat-out not a suitable buyer.

    OP, it's a tough question. I wonder if there's a sensory integration / sensory processing isssue going on.

    I do think that the solicitous attention from adults might reinforce the behavior. ...

    sorry but this just torques me off. The constant, very heartfelt complaint I hear from FM sufferers is that people don't think their pain is real. That they get the :rolleyes: (the same :rolleyes:...

    No, hold your cards close to your chest! No details on how many are actively looking, and definitely nothing about tomorrow. The very most I'd say is "I do have several very interested parties."

    I am flummoxed that you seem to feel obligated to accomodate Buyer A's off farm lease. For such a supposedly timid person, she's trying to bully you with time pressure and swatting away your concern...

    I need to echo others about the visiting topic. It doesn't matter if you brought it up or they did. Very possible buyers are simply responding to your cues-- I'm willing to bet you've explained the...

    OP, you are making this way way too complicated. It does not matter right now what you told A, B, or C so far. There may be a D, E, and F and suddenly you have a chess game of epic (and completely...

    Does anybody see anything in that mare that looks remotely Icelandic? I don't. Morgan seems more believable to me. I suspect this is like that ad touting the RARE Przewalski Horse living in some...

    Really, really like this phrasing vs the original. (I know you weren't asking for opinions on that, OP :D But the original phrasing unfortunately seemed to equate learning with losing. This other...

    Yes, make sure horse doesn't leave property until the check has CLEARED.
    Honestly, I would not do a trial. He's an inexpensive horse so your risk is far greater if he's injured and no longer...

    So nice of you to take on this project! Best of luck with her. Do beware the whole "she was abused in the past" line of thought-- it tends to excuse a host of behaviors that should not be excused. ...

    Assuming the OP has a decent release form that clients sign, she would be covered for her lesson activities. And she's not a party to the showing activities. Where in this thread did the OP say...

    Will you have expenses in hosting the sale (is that what the $10 sellers fee is meant to cover)? If not, and since this is your first one, maybe there's no fee for sellers if they provide their own...
