    If you're close enough to Morven Park, you might want to check in and see if any of their staff or vet techs are looking for a little extra work.

    Have you thought about Dacaprio? He seems to refine and throw lovely temperaments. I think my 4-year old (out of a 16.3 mare with substantial bone) will still grow a bit, but she's a very refined...

    I don't think they have the same shipping deals, but prices are even better on Zappo's clearance site: 6pm.com

    If you're ever in KY, the Zappos/6pm outlet is just south of Louisville. Shoe mecca!

    My best keeping-hands-warm-and-dry formula is to wear disposable gloves (latex-free medical kind) as a base layer under mittens, which are the only things that keep my hands really warm. Then, I can...

    I'm in a big sink hole area (it's karst country) and deep holes can appear pretty suddenly. For the most part, (sink-hole) related holes seem to be in lower-lying areas and almost always (at least so...

    My allergist said our immune systems peak in our 30s & 40s, which is why we become more sensitive at this time. Sounds like a plausible explanation...basically everything makes me itchy these days!...

    Cavallo boots are the easiest, I think, (but perhaps not the most tailored fit). Paige Poss (ironfreehoof.com) is in your area if you're interested in finding a knowledgeable barefoot trimmer.

    I've started weighing ingredients (esp. flour) now, which helps a lot (if you can find recipes that offer weights). Even after sifting flour and double measuring, it's incredible how differently it...
