    I know aliceo, I wish other people's drama would be more punctual.

    Samotis, while abscess can present differently, the classic scenario is they're fine and dandy, and then within the same day they are 3-legged lame, will not put weight on that foot. First time you...

    Just thought of this today. Any update OP from the workup at New Bolton?

    I'd pull shoes, and soak and do the ichtammol/diaper/vetwrap/ducttape or boot routine for a couple weeks. My vet and farrier agree that abscesses are helped by walking around, and advise bute to...

    LOL Fourfaults-- we're living parallel lives. The room I have mega-greige in (in our 115yr old, formerly neglected farmhouse) has white wainscoting & trim. I have a couple pics in our renovation...

    Good for you OP. Definitely review things with the lawyer before you confront. And no matter how ugly she gets, no matter what she says/does and how angry you may feel, keep all of your...

    OP, of the colors you posted, I like the Mocha one the best. It'll look great!

    Ha!! our sitting room is mega-greige. LOVE the color with our wood floors and white window trim. It's neutral but doesn't feel boring (though isn't that what EVERYONE says about their beige walls...

    On reference letters-- hardly anyone in the world enjoys writing them, even when it's for someone you really do appreciate. They're time-consuming, awkward to write, etc. Best way to get the...

    I have to disagree with your maintenance advise. You really need to regularly sharpen the chains. Like, I'm talking after every job (for us, that's a few hours of cutting). Totally depends on the...

    Like Hoss, I was going to suggest a reciprocating saw too. Such a handy tool, it would handle the tasks you describe. Like ANY power tool it must be respected but it's not indimidating and easy to...

    Do you and/or your daughter currently work with a counselor? Even if not, might be a good idea to start. She's 11, so more and more situations where she wants or needs to "go it alone" will arise. ...

    Well, the runner doesn't catch up to the moving horse-- she "catches up" only because the horse has been tied to a fence, waiting for her ;)
    But obviously the horse will be faster overall.

    Thanks for the tips.
    So on the fastest runner in front/not overlapping comment, I want to be sure I understand. Let's say I'm the speedy one. So I'm the first rider, I leave my horse after xx...

    @Megaladon I know, right?? I had my camera out because they were being really funny--tearing around the pasture doing the run-buck-fart-squeal thing. Kip was galloping right up into the gray's...

    Not under saddle (but I wouldn't have stayed in the saddle for long, anyway!) This, from a 16.2, 1350lb lumbering tank, a/k/a the Hungarian Hippo: wheeeee!

    After 22 years together, 18 married, I am more in love with Mr HH every year. He makes me laugh out loud every single day. We have running jokes that I'm sure are are incredibly stupid but when...

    Suggest that you plug it in to a timer outlet, like one of these. Depress only one "tab" so that the unit will be powered for a maximum of 30min and then will switch off even if you flake out and...

    I sympathize--as I said on another thread this weekend, I had to euthanize a beloved old guy just a few weeks ago, so I get how painful this time is for you.
    But there's no real logistics dilemma...

    Jawa, if you lose access to the soaking boot: a 2-gallon size heavy duty freezer bag, duct taped above and below the fetlock, works really well. Stand the horse on grass or in bedding-- ie not a...

    Anyone here do Ride-and-tie?

    A friend and I are considering entering one in SC in May. We're both good riders and runners, and she has a very fit Arab trail horse, but this would be the first RAT for all three of us.

    I agree that a space heater on a bucket is just really dumb. But, you could easily make that more secure without waiting for BO or someone else to do it. Just go commando and get it done. I'd bring...
