    I lost my heart dog 2 years ago and I still get choked up when I think about it.
    It was not sudden, but a steadily increasing downhill slide and it was the best
    thing to do. But I remember all the...

    Sometimes the crazy does take a while to come out.

    I've found the best boarding farms by finding a place that takes care of the
    horses the way I would if I were in charge. There are always...

    I kept my horse too when I divorced. Same thing, cut back on other expenses,
    vacations, that sort of thing. I am also able to work down my board at the farm.

    I have the jointed stirrups, and they are not the super expensive ones, but
    they are really stiff. I can't ride in the very 'wiggly' ones, but these ones
    do wonders for my knees.

    ^^^ I like the idea of a thinking post. Best to tie her in the back of the stall,
    so she doesn't have a whole lot of room to set back if she decides to do that.
    Tie her short enough so she can't...

    All of the barn jobs I worked paid $10 / hour. Unless the person lived pretty close
    to your barn, I'm not sure that it's worth $15 to drive out and take care of the
    farm.

    an upset tummy, as well as pumkin. The pepto soothes the tummy and the

    You know it's in the pet's best interest but still it's completely voluntary. I think
