    If it were my horse and I had the money, I'd have a full-body nuclear scan done. It should help pinpoint where the real issue is (neck? back? SI? hocks? something else?) and then you can use the...

    I teach mostly kids (up-downers up to crossrails) and I usually have one working student who comes on Saturday mornings and works for 2-3 hours and then gets a half-hour lesson (and/or a hack if...

    I have a 12-year-old student who half-leases my horse in the summer. It's obviously a mutual love affair. He will do ANYTHING for her. She rides him everywhere bareback in a halter. One day she...

    Yes I have...and I said you can verbally correct a horse at the immediate time of the misbehavior. I have, however, never heard a horse stand there and repeatedly squeal and holler at another horse...

    In disciplining horses, you have to think like a horse. Horses don't yell at each other. The dominant horse delivers a swift, physical punishment, such as a return bite or a kick. The dominant...

    I have one sitting on my bookcase right now, waiting for her dinner. She was at a barn where I worked and had been left there by a few other barn leasers over her life span. When the person leasing...

    I LOVE my Sorels--can't beat the warmth. Yeah, they're clunky, but they're WARM, waterproof, and have great traction. If you can wear a youth size, they're often cheaper and a little shorter. Mine...

    Where in NC? I go across CT/NY on 84 to 81 in PA and down to 77 to get to central NC. If you're going Raleigh/eastern NC, you'd want to take 95, though.

    Yes, NASCAR. I've covered it for a decade for various outlets, have a handful of awards. I'm good at what I do, and I'm also good at a variety of other things, including customer service, etc.

    I tried applying for seasonal retail stuff...nothing. I have retail experience. Didn't help. I've applied for every crap job in my area. Nothing.

    I recently went to a job fair where there were several local temp agencies. So far, not a single call.

    If I could afford to take classes, I would do vet tech or something. But right now, that's...

    Believe me, I've applied for anything and everything. I'm not picky. I'm currently taking a resume writing class and volunteering extensively with 4-H.

    Like the title says, how do you keep your chin up while looking (and looking, and looking, and looking some more) for work.

    I'm waiting to hear on a job application, and trying not to get my hopes up, because well, nobody wants me, not even for crappy seasonal retail jobs. And this is so much more than that. I applied...

    At my heaviest (200+) I never took up more than one airplane seat. At 155, I fit just fine now. But I do think that if you encroach on someone else you should pay for it (or the airline should refund...

    My 27-year-old came to me free at 26. He does require some maintenance, and he's a hard keeper and eats a ton. But he's a great schoolmaster and will pack beginners around with a look of complete...

    QH is a Hoover-he's fed on the ground because he eats every bit and doesn't waste any. TB gets his on the ground if he's outside, or if it's a flake or less at a time. More than that in a stall, he...
