    mmm, sounds delicious, saved the recipe.

    I ate so much brownie batter last night that I didn't eat any dinner. I prefer the batter to the cooked product, I don't care about the raw eggs, etc....

    Much ado about a normal winter storm here in the Sierra foothills. I show 5 inches of rain over 24 hours, which most streams seemed to handle. Localized street flooding, I got a flash flood warning...

    40 pounds is only 5 gallons of water, it's so damn heavy! I carry two 5 gallon water containers, they're blue and cube-shaped with a handle. I did have to go to Walmart to get them (and I hate...

    I use something similar to the baskets Desert Topaz linked to, though mine are from Ikea. I think it depends on your trailer and how it is internally configured, I have the metal wall studs...

    Hopefully you'll find out more with the tick titer, I did the same this spring. My silly arab was dull, not even wanting a handwalk, just blah. I really thought it was some form of tick illness, as...

    I'm so glad this turned out ok! I am nervous about this exact situation, and I have my contact info on my bridle, on my saddle, and when I'm far from home I braid a tag into his mane. Glad everyone...

    There are lots of options, but I had the most fun at Point Reyes Arabian Adventures. Cantering through the forest, beautiful trails and fun, well trained horses. I did not do a beach ride, but I know...

    I'm sure there are fancier products, but when I bought my absolutely filthy trailer I was able to use good old Bon Ami non-scratching cleaner and a no-scratch sponge. I tried using one of the...

    Your circumstances are hard, when there doesn't seem to be an answer. I know you said you treated for ulcers, but your horse's laziness symptoms were exactly what cued me in to my horse's ulcers. He...

    There are some dressage-trail mix saddles, if you're still interested. I have a Solstice, and love it. Plenty of rings, nice balanced position, cushy seat you can make even more comfy with a fleece...

    My barefoot horse blew his abscess after two weeks out the heel bulb. I could definitely see a reddened area after soaking twice a day in Epsom salts, never any brown small spots like that. I poked...

    We had two, brothers, they were awesome. One died of cancer young, his poor brother has never been the same. Both were the lowest in the hierarchy of barn dogs, bossed around by the three-legged...

    I have a yoga ball chair, and have for more than five years. It's just a yoga ball, nothing fancy. I have/had a bad hip (horse injury years ago) that chairs exacerbate, but the yoga ball is great....

    I made one with elastic, velcro and neoprene. But there are some good options out there.

    This is all very interesting! Here in Northern California there is almost no humidity, and the bugs aren't awful. It was 108 when I got to the barn yesterday afternoon, and every horse was standing...

    My gelding also had this last month. The sheath and area in front were swollen. Of course I imaged the worst-case scenario, then calmed down and thought about insects. The flies had just gotten...

    I made some reins, biothane is super tough to work with (I'm also domestically challenged.) I resorted to true tools, which I'm much more comfortable with. I pre-drilled holes with a small drill bit,...

    I made something similar to the runners armband, I just happened to make it out of velcro, elastic and neoprene. I wear it on my leg, super easy access. I prefer the neoprene because I often ride...

    Depending on what you feed, I love California Trace. It is formulated for grass hay diets. I think minerals need a carrier to bind them together, Ca trace uses rice bran and almond hull meal. There...

    I can only speak for my Hi-Tie, but I love it. Horse is content, but has also tested it (spinning around for an hour when his buddy left) and no problems. I do use a cotton rope, not the bungee thing...
