    I applaud your good intentions. But I'm not sure whether animal control would do anything or not. Might want to check with them first. You know, call up with a hypothetical "Hey y'all, suppose I...

    I know how you feel. I ran over my neighbors' dog when it ran out of a bean field and right under my back tire. Sat with the neighbors' kid while the dog bled out through its mouth and died.

    If he's footsore now, and is going to be on a lot of gravel, I'd advise you to have him shod at least in front. I spent too much time waiting for my horse's feet to "toughen up" and now wish I'd...

    No, not nuts. I live on a similar size place, in coastal SC, and DH and I are both over 50. It's like my parents said about having children in their forties - it keeps you young.:yes::)

    Well, you can always smack them. But IME, they'll just yell "Ow" and hit you back. :lol:

    People burn off their fields after they get one crop in - which right now is tobacco - before they put the next one out. Kills weeds and pests without using pesticides andherbicides and saves...

    I'm sorry, I don't mean to make you mad, but my advice is the same as enjoytheride's. I think you need to get someone with experience to help you out. A fresh perspective and a new set of eyes can...

    I got a Troxel Sierra - in fact, it's the second one I've had. I got the new lower-profile one this past Helmet Awareness Day. You can get really good deals on the older models now, which should be...

    My six year old nephew eats them shells and all. I didn't know you could eat the shells until I saw him do it, but apparently they are edible. :) His peanuts come from the farmer's market, so no...

    I will try the raisins, thanks. :)

    Mine used to love freeze-dried mealworms, back when they first transitioned from house chicks to henhouse chicks. I thought if I got them hooked on mealworms...

    I don't know how much movement we're talking about, but my western saddle moves a little bit under the cantle. Not nearly as much as it moves when I add a bucking strap, though. Those things are...

    I hate to be contrary, but again there are no hard and fast rules. The best instructor I've ever had takes phone calls and texts during my lesson. She pays attention when she needs to, but really,...

    Oh, geez. I once lived out in the country, only on a busy road. All the inconveniences - long commute, lots of upkeep - with none of the benefits (still had to leash walk animals who weren't...

    Well, I have to say, you can learn a lot from a grumpy schoolie. So don't freak out and leave if the horses pin their ears and nip.

    Wow, me too! My mother was convinced horses were secret carnivores and responsible for all those sad little faces staring back at us from milk cartons. My dad would sneak me off for rides on the...

    I will never forget that beautiful picture you posted of you and Calvin at some function, both in evening dress. Your love for each other was so obvious.

    The only two professions where inexperience is considered a virtue are politics and prostitution. :sigh:

    That's an interesting question. I'd be absolutely shocked if any of mine would pick a kid up and toss her. I think it more likely that my old guy would just run away from her. My two young guys,...
