    Off track of OP here but...are you saying you show in rated Large Ponies at a C show as an Adult? That's not really an endorsement of Adults riding and showing Ponies in classes restricted to Ponies...

    No, vx, if you looked crazy I would not have quoted you to preserve what the original question asked about before it was deleted.

    Quoted this because OP edited the injury she's trying to support out of her original question. I retired mine at age 21 when it got a probable DDFT -skipped the 600 or so for diagnostics. Leg...

    Nobody is saying ignore negative reviews. Just that there are 2 sides to even the flattest pancake.

    Maybe Diane is justified posting her $250 turn out blanket was improperly stored and ruined. Or...

    Its not like with some of the others, you buy them. They do check you out but it's yours. No home visits either. I know pros who have gotten prospects from them.

    Its like with humans, heat and ice along with an elastic bandage often reduce post exercise soreness and swelling, so does a poultice. Liniments sooth and stimulate circulation. Hence we use them (me...

    Um...I never saw a rasp with sharp edges enough to slit the belly open- it's a big, thick nail file. Sounds like a fifth hand internet story.

    Have you said anything at all to the farrier about what happened? I don't read that you have reminded him if your earlier request. Honestly, I would just speak to him if your horses have never moved...

    Thank you Lex. I even watched it back last night when it reran both to relish that long awaited moment and look for some plot clues I might have missed with Ramsey and Oleanna...didn't find much...

    Stuff is pretty good and cheap. Try it.

    Boots 7 has products for "mature" skin including a night cream I found as good as many of the pricier department, specialty or web only sites. No parabens...

    Have to sign up to read that one...but there have been some pretty good, non sponsored, independent studies that concluded very little actual support is provided by any boot or wrap.

    Another shout out for New Vocations. Their's are a little farther along-they put some saddle time in them, get a good vet work up and feed them up some. You can get a much better idea of ability,...

    I found alternating worked best with mine. 4 days is too long to sit and time gets wasted working freshness out that first day back.

    You could compromise though. 2 consecutive and the other on day...
