    We had this when we were the sellers--the buyers presented us with a list of repairs after the home inspection. We knew (via our agent) and our own knowledge of the house, that there were issues,...

    My Paint is by On Ice, a big, loud, liver chestnut/white "halter" type sire (by his looks alone, as I know nothing about APHA/AQHA breeding) out of a TB mare. My boy resembles his mom (ch. roan, 4...

    Well, you can either find all the negatives to farm life, or you can look for the positives and enjoy them. Guess I'm going with the brighter outlook. Do I have weeds, mud, pesky rats and birds,...

    Fix the stall wall for safety's sake, and then don't put one in and one out. Ever. Build the second stall and either put both in or both out. Period. I have two stalls, two retired horses. They...

    He is far too socially conservative for me and my friends, even my Republican/Right Indie ones. My Republican husband can't stand him and his ilk--what happened to the fiscally conservative,...

    The "stomping on small animals" thing is pretty much donkey behavior--guarding their territory. The owner must handle this mini donk, now and often. Feet, face, body-all must be touchable. I live...

    When I came off last spring in a crappy, gravelly arena and cut my elbow wide open, I bled all over my County saddle...which is a horrific blond color. I simply used saddle soap and washed the blood...

    Ah...Glenn. He's a former teacher from WA. I'm a current teacher in WA. We are not proud. He is a wingnut from the far right field of nuttiness.

    OP-- I don't worry too much about "cool" when I wear my vest. I can build up a sweat on a 30 degree day, and like Purplenurpl, I often look like I've run a marathon after I take my vest off after a...
