    Well, it just started raining here. However, we really need the rain, so today, I'm enjoying it more than I would the sunshine. Besides which, I got all 3 equines groomed this morning when the sun...

    If it were me as a parent, I would take my kids to any one of the multitude of alternatives available these days. For example, here in this area we have:

    ChocoMare, how do they fit in the foot? I have wide feet so when I buy shoes, the size is kind of a sliding scale - 7/7.5 if the shoes come in D or wider, upsize to 8 if the shoes come in a C width...

    I bought a Tucker mule bridle online because the trainer who started one of my mules under saddle for me refused to use the bridle I had because it had Chicago screws. Not that I blame him, as I'm...

    This. After many pairs of Blundstones over the years, the last time I needed new ones, I bought Redbacks. They may be even a bit better than Blundstones back when Blundstones were still great boots.

    I was just going to post the same thing. Based on what you have said in the two threads currently in action here, this is not a good situation for you to be in. The potential for things to get even...

    Did you get shims for it? Because I have a Thin line felt pad for a western saddle and without shims, it won't help a saddle that rocks - you do mean rocks forward and backward, right? Like a rocking...

    I agree with gypsymare. For your average adult, the reward (free board) is not sufficient to justify the required time/effort.
