    Um, I went to a Community College that had the mascot of a Beaver. I even wore the big furry Beaver costume to several basketball games. Would that make you pee your pants or anything? :winkgrin:

    JanM
    Thanks! Good point on the benefits and retirement in cosmetology. She has expressed an interest in Veterinary Tech, and we are proceeding with that in mind. The program here is not easy to...

    She moved in, I think, because she is very much a Daddy's girl and I think she just wanted to be near him more. That coupled with the normal difficulty teen girls seem to start having with their...

    No, she is not at all a bad kid. Very willing to help most of the time. She just requires sustained direction at a task. She has collected eggs for 3 summers and knows exactly what to do with them...
  8. After 10 years of childless marriage.....BAM! DH's 17yo daughter living with us

    :eek: this is more of a vent than anything else and over all we aren't doing too bad adding step DD to the household. But.....

    Do you actually have to tell this age every move to make? I really...

    I thought that mine fit very true to size in the foot. I had expected that I would possibly need a wide calf for my muscular/stocky lower leg but the regular calf actually fit perfectly. I hope...

    I have had wonderful luck with the Schneider's I bought last year. My gelding with the help of his equally rough playing OTTB buddy ripped up 2 other blankets. To be fair, they weren't the higher...

    If you are anywhere near Northern Virginia we could easily spare at least a cord of firewood. And some food.
    Just let me know.

    Hey! I was asking about this awhile back. That looks like the perfect introduction. Thanks for posting. :D

    I started riding regulary at the same age. I currently ride my wide draft X in his correspondingly wide English A/P saddle. I also experience hip pain when I have ridden a bit harder/longer/more...

    I squish 1/2 stud muffin around it and picky mare hoovers it up. We did switch to small piece of apple to keep sugar down. That worked well too.

    What do you guys use as a treat for muzzle training? That's something we can work on to try to make things a little easier for everybody.

    It's very reasonable. But doesn't make the mare need her muzzle any less. And partly why I do buy shavings for the stalls. They aren't in much other than when it's very hot. They do maximum...

    ^^^ I know I am pretty disappointed at this point. I am the only paying boarder and have 3 horses there. I also pay one of the daughters to keep one of my mares trained and ridden. In all, I pay...

    The horses aren't that hard to catch. You can't just walk into the paddock waving the muzzle at either of them though. I actually saw one if the daughters doing that with my gelding.... Ya know,...

    There is a dry paddock that opens into the pasture, but is an all or nothing deal. All out, or all in because the water and shelter are located in the paddock area.

    We are definitely increasing...

    They don't really have a spare paddock. The one dry lot/quarantine paddock houses the 2 geldings. Their gelding is not good with mares and they don't want to mix them. I wish we could.

    Yeah, it's driving me crazy. They have given the horses good care in the past, but the BO had bee dependent on her 2 young daughters(20's) to do lots of the barn work in the past and both girls are...
  24. My BO keeps turning my recently diagnosed laminitic mare out w/o muzzle

    So, just gotta vent. My BO keeps turning our newly diagnosed (3 months) laminitic mare out on pasture without her muzzle. I have requested that she have it on at all times while out on grass. It's...

    Did the vet X-ray her feet? My mare was just diagnosed with laminitis and her early symptoms were tender feet (and more so on hard surfaces) and a choppy stride. I would look deeper. I really hope...
