    For many years I roached in April when it started to get warm and they were shedding out. By the time fall rolls around and it gets cool again they have a thick english-length mane.

    However, I...

    Good decision. WAY way too many uncertainties.

    I also give you props for describing your daughter as an advanced beginner though she is jumping 2'6" courses. Many parents think poopsie is an...

    I would tell them that my previous job had X hours and thus my life has been set up around those hours. You understand you will need to make some adjustments, but need one afternoon a week off. ...

    I've returned things to TSC with no receipt. If you know which card you used they can look it up on the computer.

    And quite frankly- this is their mistake. They did not send you the item you...

    If she is pushy on the ground and won't tie I think this is a dominance issue. That sounds lame and NH-ish but I agree that doing some groundwork with her might improve the situation.

    Gloriginger, her comment was agreeing with mine and I stand by it.

    I agree that the North Shore is a very horsey area and there are wonderful places to ride up there. However, if one spends most...

    Oi. IMO it's a useless waste of time which is why I've never bothered to do it. It is the ONLY state in the US which requires a riding instructor's license to be insured and an apprenticeship to...

    I would pack up my stuff, horse and trailer and go to trainers. Then mail them a certified letter informing them that you and your horse will not be returning to the farm for any reason due to...

    I would smile and nod when she says that I owe her for all of July even though I gave "one full complete calender month" notice that I was leaving in 30 days. Move the horse...

    Search for Model Agent. It's my husband's book :D

    And when I say that, yes, he wrote it.

    There are 7 in the series- that is the first, and it is free.

    Thanks MW.

    Yeah, these people are a disaster. The "brothers" are all DH's mom's brothers. Brother #2 has disappeared again and does so on a regular basis. I think he is in jail right now...

    Here's your HeadDesk moment of the week!

    My husband just send me a pic of a very cute black labmix puppy.

    Backstory:

    My dear husband's (dh) mother's family is nuts. His mom is sweet and well meaning but not always all there- she's...

    I'm guessing both male as well. Usually orange cats are male, although I have known several buff females.

    Name: Sunny? Apricot? Pumpkin? Peach?

    I must be hungry.

    If the cat is a few years old my advice would be to get a kitten. For some reason kittens, after a normal WTF period, endear themselves to older felines. The older felines usually don't mind them,...

    Well that's a bummer update. I was reading and preparing to write: buy the poor horse and then turn in broker's name to animal control!

    If you take pictures of any mark he's put on you and secure the photos it is time to get out.

    He is NOT worth the risks or the money.

    Well it sounds like the horses are not safe there then. I'd consider a call to animal control. Why is out of the question for the horses to leave? Is there no chance you could buy them for low...

    1. Are you on any medications and if you are have they changed at all since you started showing symptoms?

    2. Have you taken your temperature at all when you have an episode of...

    I was going to say Adequan, Previcoxx or Tramadol.

    I'm glad that's been covered.
