    Absolutely agree with the advice to get a smaller commuting car and wait on the truck. If you can get a deal on a Nissan, why not a Rogue? They've got great storage for horse shows, are large enough...

    Thank you all for your input. Lots of things to think about.

    We're definitely open to adopting, and have been in touch with a few rescues in the area but nothing has panned out so far. We'll also...

    I have been in your shoes. It was awful. I was exhausted constantly. I joked to the boyfriend that he was lucky I got to pay attention to him in my sleep, since we lived together.

    I did Google. I do not know which side this breeder falls on, honestly. For me there's a world of difference between having a genetic outcrop and deliberately breeding for color. If it's the latter,...

    I think that's the biggest thing that's making me feel uneasy. I'm not going to go so far as to run away, but the idea that it's a selling point has me concerned. The difference between "a silver dog...

    What questions to ask a Labrador breeder?

    Boyfriend and I are looking, in a low-key way, for a dog - young, and full or part Labrador. We've talked to a couple of rescues, and none of those have panned out yet. He came home from work a few...

    Ditto to this - just placed an order last night, and same price. $75 for 50 ml of the 250mg/ml plus $10 for shipping.

    It is backordered right now, and won't ship until the end of March.

    So, so SO OVER IT. My cutoff is single digits; anything above, and I'll still work. It barely gets into the low double digits in the middle of the day right now, and by the time I get to the barn...

    5'9" with a 15 hand (and half an inch, give or take his shoeing cycle) horse here. He has a fairly well-sprung barrel, so he takes up my leg, but I do find I fall into bad habits about the way I use...

    Single digits are my cutoff. High single digits and no wind chill and we will probably walk or hack, but no serious work below 10.

    Just as a point of information - not all toll booths count axles as you drive through them. A few years ago, when I called to check on this for MA, they had to give me a second transponder with the #...

    My 2h BP trailer came without brakes. They had to be gutted & replaced. It's a 1980 Kingston. So very do-able.

    Abscesses can cause swelling. My horse had an abscess in the RF and he blew up to well above his knee and was three-legged. Luckily it had also blown that day so the cause was immediately obvious....
  15. Can we talk about the muscle-building progression?

    I'm bringing my horse back into more complex and demanding work after ~18 months off due to injury + surgery. He's on the older side, so I'm trying not to rush him, but it's hard for me to see how...

    I realize I am way late on this thread, but for anyone struggling to wrap a high-movement area like a pastern (or hock, or any joint really), you need to invest in Elastikon - not vet wrap. Vet wrap...
