    I would never, ever, in a million years put up with someone who threw a fit like she did, at MY BARN. What you did wasn't unreasonable or out of line.

    Life's too short. You need to let her, and...

    Do your recipes work at high altitude? I live at 5,000 ft. and have a lot of failures when baking any kind of bread or cake until I figure out what adjustments need to be made for altitude.

    I found out at the PPE that the horse I was looking to buy had its tail "nerved" and so couldn't lift it. I was pretty irritated with myself for not noticing it when I'd ridden him before the vet...

    I'm distracted by the actress, Zoe McClellan, on the new NCIS New Orleans show who was Petty Officer Coates on JAG. Every time I see her, and I've tried three episodes, I can only think of her in...

    I said to my dr. "I guess it's time for a colonoscopy" and he said "okay, I'll set it up."

    In my experience, once they accept you as their leader they have more desire to be with you...because you're their leader, and that's how most horses roll.

    My first gelding was really aloof, and...

    I have granite in all of my bathrooms and the kitchen. The kitchen required we work off a full slab due to the amount needed, but all my bathrooms, and laundry room, were made from the remnant...

    I'm from California. I use dinner and supper interchangeably. I also use couch and sofa -- never really thought about which is which. Come to think of it, ottoman and footstool get equal time, too....

    I cut tortillas into bat shapes with a cookie cutter, then baked and salted them and served them with guacamole. They were very cute, and a big hit. I made Martha Stewart's shortbread cookies...

    Another vote for the Dyson Animal cordless. It is a breeze to use, and makes maintaining my hardwood floors easy and quick. I got one for my daughter-in-law, too, and she tells me all the time how...

    He's already got a small hole hay bag, so that's not his problem, unless it's ticking him off that he's having to work so hard to eat. And he's not cast, since I get out there fast enough to catch...
  14. Horse has started pawing/pounding on stall in the middle of the night

    This is new behavior in a horse I've had for a year. He's six years old, a Paint gelding who's very mellow and turned out 24/7 with free access to his stall. So he's started coming in and waking up...

    I unfriended everyone but my children a couple of years ago. It was just because I was tired of seeing posts about people I didn't know. I belong to a couple of private groups, one for my riding...

    Not relevant to your question, but your place looks lovely. All that green grass, lush trees...I live in a desert, so I'm green, too, with envy!

    I never go out to my barn without my dog, and that gives me a sense of security. I hope it's not unfounded! She's pretty protective and alerts to everything.

    These threads do make me nervous,...

    Could you just buy ones that fit the waist and have the rest altered by a seamstress? I have had to do that with any kind of trousers all my life, even in the days I had a beanpole build.

    My best financial decision/move was buying a succession of fixer upper houses, living in them while my husband and I remodeled them, then selling for a profit and moving on. It's how we were able to...

    I tried one of the saddles listed on her site but it didn't fit my horse, unfortunately. It was beautiful and well priced. I had to send it back, but I would definitely use her site again if I...

    I have concrete in my aisle, tack room and storage bay. I put mats down the middle so when I'm grooming or tacking up my horses aren't on the concrete. Other than the mats shifting whenever I...

    My last dishwasher was a Bosch, and I really liked it. It was really quiet, and since my kitchen was open to the family room that mattered a lot. I have an Asko now. It works fine. I have soft...

    They say kitchens and baths sell houses. But, as was already said, if the price is in line with remodeling/updating a buyer will likely want your house will sell. But if you're not interested in...
