    I was impressed by Phillip Dutton stepping in for Boyd's horses when it was needed.

    Hoping for good, fast, and safe trips for all.

    Good luck to Sinead.

    Here's one with an Outlander twist to it--remember how the British sent tons of Scots to the "colonies" after Culloden?

    "Songcatcher" (NetFlix). "During a visit to her sister in Appalachia, a...

    If you are in S. Calif, do they still make the ground up alfalfa and molasses? If they do, I'd think that would put weight on them fast. Used it a long, long time ago and then every time we would...

    Any preliminary necropsy results from the two horses? Seems that this would be important information for all concerned.

    Just to remind everyone that this also happens with horses on the track during or after strenuous exertion, and again, no real cause is found.

    I also wonder if the extended and extra cold winter...

    I've heard of people recycling old feed sacks as containers. Do you punch holes in the bottom? Any other hints? There is a lot of composted manure and sawdust bedding available. Can one use that,...

    Maybe take a few months and get to know and form a partnership with your new horse. At the very least train him up so that he can be the perfect partner for someone else if you decide it's still not...

    Years ago TLC had a series on inexpensive weddings with a top budget of, say, $5000 or so, including the gowns, rental for the reception, decorations, etc. Needless to say, it wound up with the...

    Here are some of my faves:

    The Way (someone here recommended it and it's great).
    Big Miracle--a whale of a tale. I followed every newcast when this was happening.
    The Holiday.

    Peter Gregory's death made the Monday papers, said pretty much what has already been said. One of the sons is moving to the place and will be helping in the running of the rescue. I believe this is...

    I'm surprised that the local paper has not carried any sort of story about this. The farm itself has been written up and featured many times, including fairly recently. I don't usually catch the...

    Sadly, I think Laura is right. The complaint was made, the farm was investigated and found to be complying with the minimal standards required of food, water, shelter. The farm was found to be in...

    Deacon has way too much emotional baggage for me. Scarlet is getting a little too helpless and bland for my taste, same with her ex-boyfriend, the tall skinny guy. I'm getting really fond of Avery,...

    I just remember years ago there was a big flap on ABR about Bravo. Paul Sorvino's daughter supposedly did a big expose about one of the sons of the owner who later died of some sort of cancer. Some...

    Shades of Robert Jordan!

    It's not like this is a big surprise to him. I suggest he get his butt in gear and those fingers flying over the computer and finish the thing.

    Is it my imagination or are they getting on that let's have everyone talk as fast as they can bandwagon? Meredith and Derek and a few others are getting hard to follow, which is a shame because I...

    Banning horse slaughter aside, it is evident that under the present circumstances it is virtually impossible to uphold the medication rules. The only way that I can see is to simply go ahead and...

    They had a recipe for a quickie coffee cake that I made ages ago. Had forgotten all about Bisquick, used it a lot back in the day.

    William Fox-Pitt doesn't seem to have any problem, and almost ANY horse is too small for him. Balance, core strength, and not moving around much seems to work for him.

    Let's keep this going throughout the season. Nobody I know watches it, and discussion is fun.

    Favorite-most player ever (although there have been many) was Boston Rob, because he knew what he...

    The Americans. Anyone a fan?

    Season 2 of The Americans on FX last night. Now, I have no earthly idea of why I love the show since it basically goes against almost everything I like to watch. Not a violence person, and first...

    I'm here too. Too bad they voted the leader "brains" guy out first, because I think he would have been interesting to watch. Thought the poker player was a dork to begin with, and he since he...
