    When I finished that book, I threw it against a wall and hoped it would break. SO lame.

    There is a difference between creating something in the shape of a teepee and wearing Native American ceremonial garb to cheer on your sports team or dress up for Hallowe'en.

    Some people think a longer bridle path makes the neck look longer. I suppose if you're showing WP or saddleseat and the mane isn't braided, it makes a difference.

    You've already made progress, no? ;) Take your time. The objective isn't to get the halter on the horse. It is, as you noted, to get her to trust you.

    As others mentioned, you/the owner may...

    Another football non fan here. Not just NCAA -- I'm not fond of pro football, either. I don't hate it -- just try to ignore it as best I can.

    I used to follow it pretty closely. But in the last...

    A tattoo can enhance the beauty of a toned, attractive body. On a flabby, saggy body part, it just emphasizes the obvious.

    And trust me ... as one who used have a very toned and very attractive...

    :yes:

    Hence the suggestion that when you get a few steps of correct, you praise and then go back to it. You're not looking for perfection, just improvement.

    Thornhill Germania Klasse fits my very wide, very round Arabian. Neither Duetts nor Wintecs worked for him -- they both rocked (and not in a good way ;)).
