    I bed my run-ins so they have a place to come in and lie down. They actually use it for that purpose. :) Not because it ever gets very cold where I live - I think mine just like having a soft,...
  2. I get the feeling that you're talking about...

    I get the feeling that you're talking about people staying in a dysfunctional relationship with an equine, not so much about rescue.

    I have never rescued a horse, because I don't have the skill...

    EPM?

    Oh, good. :) That is exactly what I was going to suggest.

    I may have told you this story before, but I bought a wildly unsuitable first horse for myself. Not a TB, but a 3 yr old recently-gelded...

    I'm glad this had a happy ending.

    The thread was starting to sound like a law school exam question on whether or not HPP qualified as a "bona fide purchaser for value" [in which a subsequent...

    Aoife is pronounced "eee-fa." :)

    I bet Blizzard was adorable. Sadly, Aoife is also very reactive (not in a good way) to other dogs. We're working with a trainer to see if we can get her over...

    You'd think. But if I show up somewhere in riding clothes I often have people ask me "Oh, did you just come from riding your horsie?"

    I always want to roll my eyes and reply "WTF? Are we in...

    Will do. The website says it usually ships within fifteen days, so it may take me a little while, but I'll post a review after it gets here.

    I was surprised to find my horse is not beginner safe. He's a nice guy and very well-trained and lord knows I am no expert. So I thought it'd be fine to let one of the barn kids ride him in her...

    Thanks, y'all. All the linked seat covers look very nice. I just ordered the saddleman one in tan that Bluey linked above. It looks like it will match my interior really well. :)

  11. Best seat covers to protect truck bench seat from dog? Worst?

    I just bought a 2013 F150 SuperCrew.

    My border collie/Great Pyrenees cross, Aoife, goes to work with me most days. She's about 75 lbs and comes with claws and extremely detachable fur. :) Right...

    In my state, dog bites are strict liability - IOW, if my dog bites someone, I'm liable. The person doesn't have to prove anything other than that my dog bit her and, unless some strange...

    If you can't work things out with the dressage trainer, see if anyone in your area does vaquero-style horsemanship a la the Dorrances, Ray Hunt, Buck Brannaman. They all emphasize getting the...

    I love my Fabtron Lady Trail. The stirrups are set underneath you, so you can post - not out in front of you, forcing you into a chair seat and behind the motion of the horse. And it has a nice...

    OP, do you have a trainer? Someone who can supervise you while you learn to lunge him? I don't mean to scare you or be negative, but lunging involves a whole lot of line attached to a whole lot of...

    Oh, I agree with you. I hate the phrase "he's got your number." Because it does start people thinking about horses in a very inaccurate and unhelpful way. Kind of sets up an adversarial...

    I've sort of been in the real-life version of that plot line. The stallion was a gorgeous grey Andalusian who retired from Medieval Times. Everybody loved him, and he was used in lessons, but only...

    I think this is just the way some people have of describing it. But it's perfectly possible that the seasoned veteran has learned that acting in a certain way with a novice human earns him some rest...

    He is. :yes: At the trial lawyers' conventions, you can always find him by looking for a knot of people laughing like crazy. (It'd be hard to find him in a crowd otherwise - he's kind of vertically...

    Rahde? Mah horse and Ah will be enjoying mint juleps on the veranda instead.

    Till sometime in October.

    Seriously, would someone down there in hell please shut the door?

    I'd read it but for the author. When he stops killing dogs (Rose, Orson, etc) who make him a lot of money and then become inconvenient for him and writing books about it maybe I'll listen. Or not.

    OT, but I kept this situation in mind when I designed my farm. Horses have 24/7 access to shelter and can be fed and watered from outside their shelters and paddocks. DH isn't horsey, but he'll...

    Riding stables? I'd think most would have some older barn rats or working students who'd like to make some extra cash.

    I wouldn't give someone from CL access to my farm and animals while I was...

    Have to say the guidelines looked pretty reasonable to me. I used to be in the peach zone and yep, I was overweight. My horse is one heck of a lot happier and more willing now that my BMI is 22. ...
