    The pain does lessen with time. Three weeks is really fresh; I was crying every day for months, and still get misty eyed at times over the loss of my favorite horse six years ago.

    So sorry for...
  3. I don't think I can board again until I'm down to...

    I don't think I can board again until I'm down to just one horse. I love knowing they're free to move around all day. I know what they're eating and when. I don't miss the drama and the compromise. ...

    I have never had a PB but I owned a Rottie, and I think there might be some similarities in owner experience. She was the sweetest dog on the planet, but the way people reacted to her made me worry,...

    I downsized from 6000 square feet to 3600 square feet. It's just me at home now, since my kids are grown, but when everyone comes home to visit it feels a bit tight just because my great room, open...

    Sometimes spending the money to escape a bad situation, even though it will be painful later, is the best thing you can do.

    Can you take a bus?

    I've pulled my horse trailer through that canyon and there are passing lanes that come up frequently, so anyone with a tiny degree of patience won't have to follow a horse trailer for long, but...

    My trainer's barn is just about ideal, I think. Horses are in 12x12 stalls, 2/3 of the dividers were bars on the top half, and the front 1/3 were solid, to minimize irritation at feeding time. All...

    I loved that show so much. I didn't watch it on its first run on t.v. because my life was too difficult at that time, and I couldn't sit and concentrate, which you have to do to catch all the great...

    You were probably too close to its nest and it was letting you know. We ride where there are Hawks all the time and have never had a close encounter other than occasional trash talking. I think...

    My hay guy brings help with him and they stack my hay. I pay for it, but it's worth it to me. I'm also single, and 10 years older than you. I don't worry that there are "strangers" on my...

    I was hesitant to get one but then my son gave me one so I started to use it. I love it, especially when I'm traveling. I can load some books and have something to read without having to tote...

    NO! The people next to the barn where I boarded my horses had two, and they were so loud and obnoxious.

    In California I went to the Gallo winery headquarters and they had them on their grounds. ...

    To me, they're trying to say the horse isn't forgiving of beginner mistakes. That doesn't mean they're not extremely well trained and seasoned. They just have no sense of humor, or patience, with...

    I just used my little LQ (52" SW) last week for the first time. I was so glad to have the catalytic heater when the temps got down into the low 40's.

    I love the door from the LQ into the...

    I have the Arena Rascal. It was a real bear to hitch to my tractor, but it was all my fault, since I'm very mechanically challenged. I finally got the jack out of my truck and used it for that last...

    We had a skunk in one of ours one day. It was summer, and I was worried it would die of heat stroke or something similar. We put a long board down but it didn't climb out. So my husband got...

    I looked at buying a really nice horse who had his tail surgically cut a few years before I saw him. He was lovely in every way, but I passed on him. He couldn't use his tail to swat flies,...

    I put marble countertops in one house. When my husband was transferred two years later I was thrilled to say goodbye to them. If you're super careful and conscientious you can probably enjoy them,...

    I've bought and sold western saddles on TackTrader. And they sold quickly, too, but they were a name brand that's desirable now. Not sure about an older saddle. Who made it?

    Yep, this is nuts. I've vetted two horses that didn't have clean PPE's and I decided not to go ahead with the purchase. It cost a lot, with travel and time, but I knew going in that there was a...

    When my grandkids come to visit my horses all line up at the fence at the first sight of them, licking and chewing, because they know little boys arrive with horse cookies and hugs. Even my one...

    I'm in the market for a GPS, so I hope lots of people chime in with suggestions. I had the Garmin Etrex, too, and I gave up on trying to use it. It drove me nuts! Now, a few years later, I'm...

    I dealt with awful mud and muck for 8 years, then last fall I finally bit the bullet and had the HoofGrid system put in the runs that go from my stalls, under the 12 foot overhang and out to the end...

    I have three horses, one is retired. I ride three days a week. When my show horse is in full training I ride five days a week: show horse three days, other gelding two days. I don't have an...
