    This is exactly what I do. I use rubber bands to fasten the socks around all of the blanket's hardware. I only wash my lightweight cotton type sheets at home because my washer can't accommodate the...

    I bought my first Rhino blankets about 15 years ago and loved them. When I got my current horse, I couldn't afford to completely outfit him with Rhino, so I bought Weatherbeeta blankets that were...

    I love the SSG Kool Flo gloves. I find them cooler and more comfortable than the crochet-back gloves. I've shown in them as well and don't think the judge looked to see if I was wearing the "right"...

    The venue is amazing! It's at the Grand Palais -- google it to see photos. You'll definitely want to buy tickets well in advance. We were there last year on the day of the event, and it was sold out....

    My horse lies down more in a enclosed type of stall than the kind with an open front. He also objected to horses being cross tied outside of his open front stall. Also, I greatly prefer sliding...

    Ok, so maybe I'm dense here. My horse hates getting his mane pulled, and I've tried scissors (backcomb and cut) and the Mars Coat King. When I use those methods, his mane near the top is still too...

    Lucky Braids! I like the way it rinses and leaves the coat clean and shiny with no residue.

    Andis, without a doubt. Depending on what you plan to use them for, you may or may not need the AGC. I have a 15-year-old set of Andis Groom Clippers that are still going strong. They're adjustable,...

    I was going to order a bunch of stuff from SmartPak but when I applied the coupon, only 13 cents was discounted. Everything except one small item was excluded in the sale. I ordered the same things...

    I bought mine from Danzig Brothers a few years ago, and I've been very happy with it. It's well made, the leather is nice, and it's durable. The nameplate was included in the price. In total I spend...

    Ag Progress Days is a 3-day agricultural exposition -- one of the largest on the east coast. You can find information about pasture, forages, gardening, pest control, livestock, and yes -- horses....

    I've had my Innovation for 8 or 9 years. Love it! The saddle helps me stay in the correct position, and it's very secure. I also have a Stabilizer, which I don't like nearly as much. You really have...

    Brings back memories! I grew up on a dairy farm, and our horse lived with the cows. Cows groom each other, and they took to grooming the horse too. Horse loved it!

    I agree NBChoice! My oldster was a Siamese as is my current cat. Both are/were the old style -- applehead, big bodied. They're not the more angular, thinner show types.

    My last cat lived to 17, a pretty good feat considering that he had megacolon from the age of 4. My current kitty is only 9.

    I've had really good luck with Durasole (on the soles, not the walls). I apply a small amount and work it around the sole with a toothbrush. A bottle lasts me quite a while.

    I learned to knit and crochet as a child and pretty good at both. I find that most crocheted sweaters end up being heavy and stiff. If you use a larger hook or mostly double crochet, you can get a...

    I work with a lot of transfer students. You need to visit with an advisor in your desired major at the school where you wish to transfer. Some credits from previous schools are matched automatically,...

    Not all misbehavior is due to pain. Many horses figure out that they don't have to work if they buck, bolt, stop, etc. The OP is wise to consider both scenarios. There are a number of things she...

    I see these bits as more of a way to re-educate the horse on how to carry himself, not as a permanent fixture for schooling. I sometimes school in a Mikmar combination bit. Yes, I can get him off his...

    I have a nice wooden grooming tote, but I hate using it because it's one large space with no dividers. If you take one brush out, everything else falls down. It's hard to keep organized. So, I...
