    Not a lawyer, but... I've been involved in a custody mess with my son's father

    who used to knock the crap out of me. Your lawyer should never agree to something that makes you uncomfortable. Get your father, or another adult male family member to go with you. If his lawyer...

    Oh how I wish I worked with people that only talked to me about work

    and were quiet the rest of the time. Especially on a 2 hour drive.

    I can solve your problem.... and you have a problem

    I can assure you that no horse will ever hit your horse with a rasp again if you do the following.


    Teach your horse that when someone, anyone, has ahold of his front feet, he is not to jerk it...
  5. I am a dinosaur.... I do no payments electronically

    None. No online banking or bill pay. And our business has a good old fashioned check book. We do accept "debit card" payments, but truly, the fees are adding up to about $50K per year. We are...
  6. How long should the shafts be for a horse sized vehicle?

    To fit a 15- 15.3 horse? And do you measure the shaft from the "front" of the vehicle forward?

    There are two people's opinions that actually matter.

    The OP...

    and the judge. Who is not going to look at her tiny little swath of dark red and say "well, isn't that special", who's her trainer, OMG I can't possibly use her trip even if her horse...

    Get a hunt whip, as in for hounds

    learn to use it.

    Get a rifle. Learn to use it.


    The neighbors already know they have a problem, and they won't do anything, because it will inconvenience them.


    Get a coyote trap. ...

    You aren't going to Devon

    They have two horses in your care, presumably pay their board on time and take lessons or have horses in training with you.

    Pick your battles carefully and decide what is important. When they...

    Won't matter in the jumper ring, so who cares as long as it's clean.

    You sound like an experienced rider

    Use whatever bit you are absolutely sure you can stop him in. Having it and not engaging it to the fullest is fine. Needing it and not having it, especially with a "big boy" would be no fun for...

    Cigarettes also don't continue to burn like they used to.

    There is some sort of additive now that keeps them from burning very long if not actually being smoked, presumably to prevent people from dying while smoking and falling asleep. You'd probably have...

    If it's on his hind cannon bones on the front

    Swiss steak. One roasting pan, zero prep, lots of leftovers

    Get a big cheap chuck roast from the store, 3-4 lbs, depending on the size of your roasting pan (the big navy blue one with the lid and the speckles)

    Put roast in pan. Salt and pepper top.

    Oh yes, the infamous "if you or a loved one were injured"
