    Huh. I'm 34 and think it is fine. Unless 'dancing' is code for getting drunk and going home with. Its just dancing, not a mating call

    Word of caution, Young Life can sometimes be the group that does the most drugs. Moms and dads never question when they think their kids are headed to a church group. I went once and never went...

    I think most of us know at least one person on here IRL, so maybe a self policing could assure someone we are who we are. I think we need the legal eagles to chime in about how to add this in to a...

    Crazy idea, but hear me out!

    We get threads all the time about how someone leased, free leased or loaned a horse to someone out of state, or sent one out for training. Then months later, they discover the horse is underweight,...

    Personally, yes. They also have the higher cantle and pommel to keep the child 'in' the saddle, not slipping forward or back. I know many people who have the flat suede leadline saddle, and they...

    I always have them on my left hand, but when I'm pregnant, they move up my whole arm, and spread across my chest. Is there any reason your blood pressure may be up?

    I used the Thorogood synthetic saddle until my DD was 3 and she got the pony Pessoa.
    There is a big difference between a saddle that is going to fit a toddler and help them out, and one that is...

    I woke up DD, who still had sleepy eyes because she kept saying " I can't see it. Where is it?" Very cool to see.

    We have the alarm set! Really glad it wasn't Sat night with all the snow! I will never forget my mom waking us up to see Halley's Comet when I was a kid. I hope my daughter remembers this as fondly!

    Two of the best repro vets I have ever known weren't worth a damn after noon every day. If it is affecting their work, say something. The one vet only did repro work, the other did everything, but if...

    Fresh waves is great. I use it in the car to get rid of the dairy odor. Beg, borrow or steal some Bed Bath and Beyond coupons, as they carry it.

    For the racehorses, it was always 4 days of hand walking, then a round pen day, then an easy turn at the gallop, then back to whatever.

    For DD's pony, who is T/O 24/7 it was 4 days off, then...

    I like Tritech 14, and also Supershield. What helps the most, especially with the irrigation pond so close to the house, is we have the place professionally sprayed once a week. We do the dairy twice...

    Grapeseed oil, coconut, olive oil. Any good oil. Also don't use cleansers. Google the oil cleansing method. Use a humidifier at night, or toss a wet towel over part of the heat vent.
