    Truth is, most of us drop out of showing a long way before our mid-fifties. The last few years (NYC area) I could count on the fingers of one hand the number of 50+ folks I see riding in an entire...

    Henry Larom wrote a lot of good books about Western life, horses, and boys.
    There are also a ton of vintage classics about the Cavalry; Frog: The Horse Who Knew No Master is one of the best and...

    Last I looked, the The New York Times is not a blog.

    Totally agree about the BF; he doesn't feel well, so if he's motivated to feel better, he might want to see if there's a treatable reason why....

    THIS.^ I think one of the biggest problems is arms sales over the years (or the abandonments of materiel cited above) such that 21st-century weaponry keeps getting in the hands of people with...

    Hey, I'd be CRANKY too! Around here, BTW, that's considered pretty NORMAL under those circumstances. I don't know where some of you ladies live in the Land O'Sweetness where you're not allowed to...

    What I'd have done is silently stared at him as though he were a dead snake, and after a moment or two of deafening silence said, "You must think I'm someone else. I'm just here to pick up my...

    The trouble's the eyeliner and halter-tie dress. Looks like you made an effort 'cause maybe you're cruisin'.

    Put on an OCBD and tuck it in a pair of baggy jeans, no one'll bother you.

    OK, "ISIS."

    "Greatest threat the West has ever faced?" REALLY? Like, compared to the Axis Powers in WWII? Convince me.

    Why had we never heard of them before this past May? Did they pop out of a rabbit...

    Everybody has a story, but the plural of anecdotes is not "data." For every inspiring, warm 'n fuzzy story about how some speculative test "saved someone's life," there is another hair-raising one...

    I just go with what the meta-analysts at places like the respected Cochrane Collaboration are saying. I've also read a pile of books in the last 5 years in which doctors themselves share exactly how...

    We used it earlier this year on a twentysomething App with a very creaky hind end; I believe his hocks are likely in the act of fusing. MAJOR improvement! So when my vet was here the other day, I...

    Thanks for saying this, 'cause I was starting to think I'm just "extra-lumpy" or something! :uhoh:

    Who ever said I didn't? :tickled_pink:

    Because Nature's existence makes God self-evident. Nature and God are not-two, but One. We are a part of that, stuck in the universal matrix, whether we...

    She obviously doesn't want to be part of your comprehensive "program" because she thinks she knows better than you. She isn't going to listen to you, and will probably wind up ruining her nice young...

    THIS^! Remember that movie "Jackass?" Well, this is obviously the next step in the de-evolution of the human species. Anyone dumb enough to do this really shouldn't pass on their genes, anyway! ;)

    I've been buying lots of stuff on E-bay for years (mostly vintage clothing and tack), and have gotten some phenomenal deals. Once or twice I've had a return or a shipping problem, but always...

    :lol: Yeah, some of 'em probably would.

    Here's my admittedly paganesque take on it, really:

    Assume for a moment that the whole of Nature is the One True God. For if not, whom would that be,...

    The very idea that someone is ORDERED "what to believe" in regard to unanswerable questions, and is not allowed to think or believe outside those lines, over my lifetime has become utterly bizarre to...

    The SRS Lipizzaners are still often working into their 30's, and most horses who are physically sound and enjoy their (age-adusted) job are BETTER OFF working. Some horses have arthritis to the...

    My point was you will NEVER be able to change other people, or for that matter any of the crappy stuff that happens in life; the only thing we can EVER control is how we REACT to that.

    Hasn't a thing to do with me, you, or how anybody else rides or "feels" about it. The facts of the circumstances spoke for themselves at the time, as others above have stated, even an eyewitness for...
